Odd Future Removed From mtvU Woodie Awards by Security

After witnessing Odd Future, those provocative young rapper chaps from Los Angeles, on the mtvU Woodie Awards, it's hard to imagine enjoying anything more.

Tyler's excellent "Yonkers," as well as "Sandwitches," the song that set Jimmy Fallon ablaze. Now there could've been explicit instructions from the security team that stage-diving was a no-no.

Regardless, gripping viewing is below.
