Tyler the Creator – Bastard


I’m going to tell you a story, a story about rebellion, violence, reality – you know, what hip-hop used to be about before “40 year old rappers talkin bout gucci, when they have kids they havent seen in years” took over. A bedtime story about the carved carcases in the basement, the blow in my throat and cutting my wrists and playing piano. But also about gettin laid, skating and gettin drunk. Shit…life.

Thats what Tyler the Creator does in his new album Bastard. Odd Future is the most unique new rap group I have heard in years, and these kids are all 18. I will be really happy if popular rap takes a turn like this. Tyler has a commanding delivery, the first track really sounds like an evil bedtime story, but he kills it every way. His word play is raw, intelligent, socially relevant and hilarious all at the same time. Kanye, were coming for your head now go to sleep bitch.
