I'll trade you a Tyler The Creator for an Earl Sweatshirt.

In case you have no idea who Odd Future Wolf Gang Kill Them All (OFWGKTA) are, imagine if the Wu-Tang Clan grew up in Los Angeles, skateboarding, watching Jackass, and getting zonked out on pills. That, in a nutshell, is Odd Future.

To give you a taste, here's OFWGKTA leader Tyler The Creator with the video for his hit single "Yonkers" -- which strangely enough has nothing to do with a city in Westchester County.

And here's Odd Future's 16-year old prodigy Earl Sweatshirt whose mother (and I'm not making this up) sent him away to an all-boys boarding school in Samoa that uses corporal punishment.

In an effort to cash-in on The Next Big Thing in hip-hop, MTV has produced, for your collecting pleasure, these OFWGKTA trading cards.
