OFWGKTA's Taco: "At the End of the Day, Nobody Really Believed in Us"

OFWGKTA fans are well familiar with frontman Tyler the Creator, smooth crooner Frank Ocean, word murderer Earl Sweatshirt, etc., but there's one Odd Future character who's always defied explanation.

Who the fuck is this kid Taco, and what does he even do?

Taco admits he didn't do much of anything those first years of breaking stardom, but now, he's a grown-ass man. He's 19, only for a couple more months, mind you, and he made enough money from Adult Swim's Loiter Squad to pay his car note and his parents' bills.

Now, he pulls his weight as the official tour DJ for both Tyler and Earl, and in preparation of the shit-show Tyler and Taco are bringing to Revolution on Wednesday, we spoke with the youngest OF member about old people, following your dreams, and growing up (sort of).
