I didn't know this was a thing. But I have thought for a while now that OddFuture is really punk.
There is definitely a thing. I would point to OddFuture, Lil B, Waka Flocka Flame and affiliates (particularly producer Lex Luger), The Main Attrakionz, producer Clams Casino, and Danny Brown - the last of whom explicitly analogized what he and certain others are doing to punk killing hair metal. Based boys are springing up like weeds.
I'd also mark G-Side as a fellow traveler - they're not part of the same thing and they sound a bit more traditional, but there's still some common spirit even if they're more polished.

is awesome, though I think I'd need to smoke to really get into it.
Mike G's album is promising but a little short sonically, but GOLD
is going to kill from what I've heard of it. He's certainly a fantastic rapper - on "Everything I Want" from Radical
he absolutely murders a Mos Def beat.
