Tyler, the Creator directs and stars in the movie WOLF, which is also the title of his latest album. In the 55-second trailer, his alter ego Wolf Haley lights up a cigarette and watches as his goons beat up a kid on a bike, but when we get a closer look, we see that it’s Tyler.
The Odd Future frontman has dreams of winning an Academy Award for his directing. “SINCE I DIDNT GET A VMA NOM IM FIGHTING FOR AN OSCAR ONE DAY WHO KNOWS THO ILL GET BETTER AS I GET OLDER,” he said.
An alternate version of his WOLF track “Rusty” can be heard as the soundtrack.
Tyler will bring his OFWGKTA Carnival back to L.A. for the second year on Nov. 9 with Frank Ocean and Mac Miller.
