Right after making history with his latest album IGOR, Tyler, The Creator announces his North American tour. There are strong tie-dye vibes in Tyler’s explosive printed shirt here. Tie-dye has always been a mainstay in skatewear fashion, but it’s enjoying a mainstream appraisal as of late too.
Almost a year later, when most people had forgotten Walk on Water” and Tyler’s tweet, Eminem responded on Fall” by hurling a homophobic slur at the Igor rapper. In an interview with The Guardian , Tyler recalls feeling unfazed by Eminem’s response and understanding its intent.
There is a thunderous noise as Tyler steps onto the stage in full ‘IGOR’ persona: bright yellow suit, check. Blond wig, check. He stands motionless, baiting the crowd, illuminated by a spotlight as the beat of ‘IGOR’S THEME’ rings out across the venue. He pops like a coiled spring towards the end of the track, with the audience going absolutely ballistic as the last notes ring out.
Tyler, the Creator will tour throughout the US, Canada and the UK in 2019 to promote his album called Igor. Recently, Tyler revealed his pride at new album IGOR beating DJ Khaled to grab the #1 spot on the US charts.
Tyler, The Creator has claimed that Eminem picks some of the worst beats ever” on a new podcast – listen below. StubHub is your source for all tickets to the Tyler, the Creator tours, events and concerts.
This one’s for the die-hard OG fans. It’s one of Tyler’s earliest standouts from his primordial Bastard mixtape and it comes from an era where Odd Future Wolf Gang Kill Them All carried a dangerous, enigmatic reputation; a time when LA’s skate kids still had them all to themselves. Tyler in particular seemed to love being feared and it’s hard to think of anyone who’s married hip-hop bravado with a fly-your-freak-flag sense of intimidation better. Tyler knew from the get-go that it was his adolescent duty to terrify suburban parents everywhere.
Tyler’s latest album, IGOR,” his No. 1 in the Billboard Artist 100 chart after its release in May, knocking off DJ Khaled He talked to Beats 1 at the time about what it meant to him. No disrespect to Khaled or anyone. But he had every person in the industry, everyone on that f—ing album. Everyone. Everyone,” he said. Cardi B. 21 Savage. Travis Scott. Post Malone. Beyonce. Jay. Everyone who sells billions of records and the fact that I beat him with this that isn’t parallel to all the popping music right now was f—ing crazy, bro.
Right after making history with his latest album IGOR, Tyler, The Creator announces his North American tour. He became the first solo rapper to land a No. 1 album without any co-production or outside producer credits, and now, Tyler will take the album across the States. He’s set to play 34 shows beginning Labor Day weekend at Bumbershoot in Seattle, with stops in Chicago, New York, Miami and San Francisco before concluding October 26th in Houston.
It’s hard to picture this scene without it taking place in Tom Hank’s New York apartment in Big. Tyler’s boyish zeal has always been endearing and he does a great job of depicting loose, teenaged daydreams. The joy here – a la Hanks’ Josh Baskin – is that he can actually put his money where his mouth is. This time around, he has the cash on hand to buy a McLaren.
Almost two years since the release of “Cherry Bomb”, Tyler released a song titled “Who Dat Boy” featuring %cA$AP Rocky% in June 2017 to precede his new album. Following many promotional countdown posts on social media, he announced that the fourth studio album was titled ” Scum Fuck Flower Boy ” and would be released on July 21.
Signed as a solo artist to a one-album deal with XL Recordings , Tyler made his proper solo debut with Goblin. Upon its May 2011 arrival, the album became the first Odd Future -related product to be released through the traditional music-industry channels, and debuted at number five on the Billboard 200. Meanwhile, Tyler continued to produce for OF and its affiliates, most notably on The OF Tape, Vol. 2 and a later 2012 release, Frank Ocean ‘s Channel Orange, which won a Grammy for Best Urban Contemporary Album. Tyler’s second LP, Wolf, followed on the Odd Future label in April 2013. It entered the Billboard 200 at number three with an expansive list of guests – including Erykah Badu , Pharrell , Stereolab ‘s Laetitia Sadier , and Quadron ‘s Coco – reflective of Tyler’s aesthetic.
Tyler, The Creator had some harsh words for fellow rapper Eminem on music producer Rick Rubin’s podcast recently. He was asked by Rubin if there are any rappers he listened to strictly for their lyrics, not necessarily their music. He named Eminem as one such artist, but then took a dig at the 46-year-old.
Tyler, the Creator showed prodigious musical talent from an early age. When he was just 16, he co-founded the hip-hop collective known as Odd Future along with Hodgy Beats, Left Brain and Jasper Dolphin. The group’s first foray into the music industry was a 2008 mixtape called The Odd Future Tape. A year later, Tyler released his first solo mixtape called Bastard, which caught the attention of critics and rap fans alike. Tyler, the Creator released his debut full-length album called Goblin on May 10, 2011. It became an instant success, reaching No. 5 on the US chart and No. 2 on the rap chart. He followed it up with Wolf in 2013, Cherry Bomb in 2015 and Flower Boy in 2017. Two years later, he released Igor, which was his first album to reach No. 1 on the US chart. To complement all of his commercial success, Tyler, the Creator has received two Grammy Award nominations. The first nomination came in 2013 for Album of the Year as a featured artist on Frank Ocean’s Channel Orange.
Alan asks Okonma if he has a picture he can sign. I don’t keep anything on me. I see this in the mirror all the time,” he says, gesturing to his face. But he takes a picture outside instead and promises to send it. A schoolboy walks past, looking mildly confused, as if telling himself he couldn’t have just seen Tyler, the Creator in the suburbs of north London.
Okonma was the first of the collective to branch off into a solo career, and early records such as Goblin and Wolf established him as an inflammatory voice of horrorcore rap. For a time, he was the face of the transgressive subgenre: He was banned from entering the United Kingdom because of his incendiary lyrics, and in 2014, he was arrested in Texas for inciting a riot during a show at South by Southwest.
Igor dropped in May, debuting at number one on the Billboard 200. The album is Tyler’s first number-one record, and it’s the first fully self-arranged and self-produced album by a solo rapper to come out on top of the charts.
Though there is an affecting vulnerability to his conversational singing voice, Tyler is still strongest with this more malevolent rap material. There is more complexity to a track like 2013’s IFHY, as he tussles with love and violent jealousy; the goth energy to Igor track What’s Good chafes nicely against the silken drapes. But throughout, Tyler has a blithe star quality that can’t be taught, or indeed repressed. Welcome back.
He picks some of the worst beats ever,” Tyler said He then praised Jay-Z He knows how to rap on a beat. He knows how to hear a beat and say, ‘I shouldn’t yell on this. Or I should rap like this on it’,” possibly implying that Eminem doesn’t do those things in his songs.
There’s a vulnerability, a neediness from Tyler in this performance—and in the album as a whole. After becoming a pop-culture sensation as a teen, and after nearly a decade of trolling the world at large, the California rapper has blossomed into his maturity and seems to be embracing the role of a serious artist. It’s a major flex.
Tyler has found himself at the centre 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.
After becoming the first solo rapper to land a No. 1 album without any co-production or outside producer credits for his latest album IGOR, Tyler, The Creator announced his North American tour, which includes a stop at Gila River Arena October 20 with special guests GoldLink and Blood Orange.
In Australia IGOR debuted at Number 1 on the ARIA Urban charts and was celebrated with a coveted Album of The Week on triple j. Embraced by fans and critics alike key tracks like EARFQUAKE rose into the streaming stratosphere with over 114 million plays and counting on Spotify alone. With IGOR Tyler, The Creator has cemented his reputation as a superstar and one of the most essential voices in hip hop.
There’s an argument to be made that IGOR is Tyler’s Lemonade. Aside from being brave stylistically, it’s the closest he’s ever come to a soul-bearing break up album. He takes us on a journey through falling in love, right into heartbreak via infatuation and manipulation. He digs deep and shares his emotions for his fans. And it’s telling that Tyler chose singing over rapping for large sections of the album – genuine feelings will always sound better in a croon.
Odd Future, the California group that launched his career, also included renowned artists such as Earl Sweatshirt and Frank Ocean. Odd Future wrote the book on 21st-century hip-hop collectives and paved the way for younger groups like Brockhampton to find mainstream success. In a few short years, Odd Future developed a cult following, established a brand that became a streetwear sensation, terrified parents across the nation through lyrics such as kill people, burn shit, fuck school,” and eventually splintered off into some of the most successful solo careers of the decade. The group burned bright and fast and left a few fires in its wake.
