Two years since Cherry Bomb, Tyler, the Creator continues to blossom on Flower Boy, his fourth studio album.
The project has also stirred speculation about the Odd Future rapper’s sexuality. On “I Ain’t Got Time!” Tyler raps about “kissing white boys since 2004.” Other tracks, like “Garden Shed,” find the Odd Future MC reflecting on this further.
“That is where I was hidin’ / That is what love I was in,” he raps on the latter song. “Ain’t no reason to pretend.” Later, he adds: “I was always like eh / Barely interested, but I bag just to brag to my boys like, ‘bruh’ / This is a crucial subject matter / Sensitive like cookin’ batter.”
You can catch Tyler performing his new material at the 6th Annual Camp Flog Gnaw Carnival on Oct. 28 and 29 in Los Angeles.
