This Arsenio show is really starting to pop off. He’s had a lot of big names and performances come on recently. Here’s last night’s episode with Tyler, the Creator of Odd Future. Funny as always.
Want to see something crazy go down? Look what happens when Mac Miller brings out Tyler the Creator at his Los Angeles show. Everyone in the place absolutely loses it, Tyler even has to take a hit of his inhaler before going into a verse.
Man, rappers are having a rough time these days when it comes to endorsements. Lil’ Wayne is dealing with Emmett Till references, Rick Ross dropped Reebok for his verse on “U.O.E.N.O.”, and now Tyler the Creator got one of his commercials pulled by Mountain Dew for being “too racist”. Here’s what he had to say about the ad getting pulled from TV. We’ve also added it below just in case you haven’t seen it yet.
“I guess people are claiming that it’s racist, which… you know, that wasn’t even portrayed in that commercial, there’s no type of hate being portrayed in that work of art at all — which I’m confused by. But this older black dude, Dr. Boyce Watkins, I guess he found it racist because I was portraying stereotypes, which is ridiculous because, one, all of those dudes [in the line-up] are my friends. Two, they’re all basically in their own clothes. It was originally supposed to be just two dudes, but Garrett from Trash Talk came with his friend and other people had showed up, so I just put all of them in that line-up, if you really wanna know the truth. Three, no [commenters] saw that commercial and said, this is racist. Everyone either said, “Wow, this is ridiculous, it’s a goat talking,” or they said, “Wow, this is the dumbest, why would they even make this?” So for [Watkins] to nitpick and notice that, clearly shows his state of mind is on some other sh– that I can’t comprehend, for him to actually sit there and for him to notice that it’s all blacks [in the lineup]. That wasn’t my intention.”
Elliott Wilson got to sit down with Tyler the Creator recently in New York for a live interview in front of a huge audience. Here’s the 2nd part of their interview. Starts off talking about his mom and so forth.
Elliott Wilson sat down with Tyler the Creator recently and interviewed him in front of a live audience in New York. Here’s part 1 of that interview.
Tyler the Creator was recently overseas promoting his album and while out there took the time out to shoot some fans with paintball guns. Noisey followed with cameras as always and documented the entire thing. Here it is…
Tyler the Creator is making a lot of moves lately and is currently on a huge promo run for his new album. Make sure to pick it up if you haven’t yet. Here’s his most recent show at the X-Games plus some snowboard with the Wolf Gang.
Tyler the Creator is almost ready to drop his new album and releases a new music video today for the song “IFHY” featuring Pharrell. Although Skateboard P doesn’t make a cameo in the video this one is still pretty dope. Self directed of course.
When Odd Future came on the scene, they took the rap game by storm with their don’t give a f*ck attitude. Well that’s still alive but they have more money and more resources to make dope videos. So here’s Tyler the Creator and Earl with “Whoa”. Earl always kills it lyrically, same with Tyler but Earl is just on another level sometimes.
Probably one of the hardest freestyles we’ve ever heard in hip-hop music hands down. Tyler the creator gets goofy with Sway as always. Taco and Jasper in the building too.
