Tyler, The Creator


Tyler Gregory Okonma better was known by his stage name Tyler, The Creator is an American rapper and record producer from California.

Tyler showed interest to music from an incredibly young age, at the age of seven, he would take the cover out of an album’s case and create covers for his own imaginary albums including a tracklist with song times before he could even make music. At fourteen, he taught himself to play the piano and music became a constant in his ever-changing home life, he attended twelve different schools over his twelve-year education.

On December 25, 2009, Tyler self-released his first album entitled ‘Bastard’ which went on to receive rave reviews from critics, including Pitchfork Media who placed it at #32 on their top 100 albums of the year list. He followed this up with ‘Goblin’ which secured him a one album deal with XL Recordings. His next album ‘Wolf’ was released in 2013 and was produced solely by Tyler, featuring guest appearances from Frank Ocean, Mike G, Domo Genesis, Earl Sweatshirt, Left Brain and Hodgy Beats.

Tyler has found himself at the center of negative media attention for his use of homophobic slurs, frequently the use of the epithet faggot in his lyrics and on social media. He personally denied the accusations of homophobia, stating, “I’m not homophobic. I just say faggot and use gay as an adjective to describe stupid shit,” and, “I’m not homophobic. I just think faggot hits and hurts people”. He appears to understand very little of the impact of his derogatory use of language. However Tyler, The Creator was the first to openly show support for fellow Odd Future member Frank Ocean after he revealed he had a relationship with another younger man. The young rapper has managed to collect a number of nominations at the MTV Music Video Awards, along with acclaim for his solo discography and work within Odd Future despite numerous controversies surrounding his lyrical content.
