Tyler, the Creator is up to his old tricks. The Odd Future ringleader revives his rap alter ego Young Ni**a in the video for “I Just Bought a Bugatti (I’m Happy).”
He holds a press conference to debut his new song featuring YouTube sensation Ice JJ Fish and his lion Damonté. In the parody, he plays into rapper stereotypes, toting guns alongside his fellow “Loiter Squad” stars Taco and Earl Sweatshirt.
“I just bought a lion, his name is Damonté,” he raps. “I spent a lot of money, I’m happy.”
Tyler has made it clear that he doesn’t want to be known as a rapper. “I want people to mention my name next to Wes Anderson and Quentin Tarantino,” he told Larry King. “I don’t want my name to be mentioned next to other rappers at all.”
Watch him and his Odd Future crew clown around in the hilarious clip.
