Bizarre, who recently split from D12 after 15 years of making music together, recently spoke with Hip Hop DX to lay rumors to rest that he left D12 to join Odd Future, but gave the new young West Coast rap group a lot of praise.
"Nah, I'm not in Odd Future. I got my own crew called The Weirdo Movement. Aw, man, they dope. They remind me a lot of a young D12. They got a lot of energy. And to do the type of sh*t we do, it takes a lot of balls. [Laughs] It takes a lot of balls and craziness to do the type of sh*t we do, so I salute."
Emimem also gave credit to Odd Future when he sat down and spoke to MTV about what he has heard from the crew so far.
"I think that from the stuff that I've heard -- I haven't heard a lot from them, I still have to go check out everything that they're doing -- but I've heard enough to know that it feels like they're pushing boundaries and buttons, and that's definitely one of the things that I'm familiar with, especially when I first came out -- I love it, I love the fact that they're doing that. And the dudes can rhyme."
