Even though his identity has been revealed as Steven Ellison aka Flying Lotus, over-the-top cartoon rapper Captain Murphy is still going with the flow. At the same time, the cat is out of the bag, so the first interview with Ellison’s animated alter-ego is pretty straight-forward. The Captain discussed the moment that made him take rap seriously, when he was chilling with Odd Future in the studio. Via XXL:

They started playing me some of the OF Tape Vol. 2. These guys were chilling in the dopest control room. I’m telling you man it was like a fucking dream. These are kids that no one has really heard of them the year before. These kids are in the illest studios, smoking weed, and calling any tunes. And they can get any producer they want because they are the biggest deal in the world. I asked them, “Yo, Hodgy, how long did it take you to record this shit? How long did it take you to write this song?” “Aw, my nigga, it took me like 15 minutes.’ 15 minutes? Are you fucking serious? I was like, “Nah, nigga. I am gonna do this shit.”
