More gossip: after our report on Steve Albini's vocal disdain for rap crew Odd Future yesterday, the group's bouncy de facto leader and XL signee Tyler, The Creator has hit back on Twitter, with a characteristically blunt missive.

"Feel Like I Have To Defend Myself. 1 Idk Who The Fuck Steve Albino Is 2. I Dont ‘Nigger Everything Insight’ 3. I Never Say Fuck U To Drivers"

"4. We (odd future) Never Discuss How Much We Are Making A Show In Public, Ever."

"5. Me Nor Anyone i Know In My Age Group Know Who You Are, Old Ass. Surprised You Knew how To Use A Computer. And Whats Good With RAPEMAN?"

Will Albini reply, sparking off further intergenerational/inter-genre net beef? Our money's on no.+

good response from Tyler. Albini has become a cranky old man and the rest of you darlings aren't far behind. Quietus too defending their sacred "back in our day turf grumble grumble".
and before y'all start, I'll turn 50 this month and I could give a damn about "back in my day" I say big ups to OF and whatever new crop of "children" come along to shake things up, move things forward and bother people like you. FORWARD DAMMIT!

Steve 'Albino'was hardly an insult. That's what Steve calls himself when he's in a joking mood.
