Tyler the Creator – 6/26 FoCo

Gatsby will represent at Aggie Theater on June 26th when Tyler, the Creator comes through Fort Collins, CO.

Tyler, mastermind behind the recently fractured Odd Future hip-hop collective, released his third studio album Cherry Bomb earlier this year. 24 years old, he is infamous. One of the most talented yet controversial rappers of this era, his previous two albums Goblin and Wolf were smash hits that exhibited a depth of lyrical and production capabilities. The Creator Tyler even revamped some traditional rap themes like the drug trade with tracks like “48”.

Although less commercially eventful, Tyler’s Cherry Bomb still shows why he is considered a musical genius. He is now rapping less about adolescent darkness and more about fame although he builds many themes on youthful experience, keeping him in with the kids. He is also now rapping a lot about ‘finding his wings’ which is a little lame but a positive turn from suicide and dissing Jesus.

Really, it’s all there in the album’s single. FUCKING YOUNG/ PERFECT describes sexual temptation mixed with confusion about real love that sounds difficult to reconcile for the young millionaire.

Listening to old hits or new, Grimey Gatsby will be at the Aggie this Friday.
