Tyler, the Creator has no love for will.i.am. The Odd Future leader is putting the Black Eyed Peas frontman on blast for comments he made about the future of his career.
The two shared a conversation during Kanye West’s “Yeezus Tour” at the Staples Center in L.A. last night. According to Tyler, will told him that 10 years from now, he will compromise his art for money.
“I MADE A BET WITH WILL I AM FOR A MILLION BUCKS THAT I WILL BE MAKING MONEY 10 YEARS FROM NOW DOING WHAT I LOVE AND NOT WHAT MAKES THE MOST,” tweeted Tyler. “NIGGA SAID ‘THEN YOU MAKE A DECISION ON WHAT TO DO TO SURVIVE’ NO NIGGA THATS NOT HOW IT IS FOR EVERYONE. IM NOT GONNA MAKE MUSIC I HATE.”
He slammed the BEP hitmaker for selling out. “HES SO TALENTED BUT HES MAKING BUTT SHIT TO MAKE BREAD, USE THE CREATIVITY FOR SOMETHING TIGHT MAN,” said Tyler. “I CANT BELIEVE THIS NIGGA WAS PLOTTING ON MY FUCKING DOWNFALL CAUSE HE MAKES SHIT HE HATES AND DOESNT LIKE HIMSELF. WILL I AM IS A MARK.”
But he didn’t let that discourage him. “THIS NIGGA REALLY WALKED UP TO ME TELLING ME ABOUT MYSELF 10 YEARS FROM NOW NIGGA FUCK YOU NOW IMA GO OUT OF MY WAY TO PROVE YOU WRONG,” he said. “IMA STAY POSITIVE AND FOCUSED LIKE I HAVE BEEN SO I CAN CONTINUE TO HAVE A TENNIS COURT IN MY BACKYARD EAT A DICK.”
He did, however, admit that the first hip-hop album he liked was the Black Eyed Peas’ 1998 debut Behind the Front.
