Meet: Tyler, The Creator

02/16/2011

Everyone seems to be jocking Tyler, The Creator, which is funny because when I first heard of the “horror-core” artist his video “French” had only 20k plays (now almost 400k). There’s no doubt “shock value” is infused in his videos, lyrics and the he has no problem having you “check his French.” I spoke with The Weekly Tape Deck the other day, and he informed me of the group’s “horror-core” title.

I dig his bass voice–but not sure I’m into the Slipknot meets hip hop. Thoughts?
