Rock & Pop, Seasonal Special Happenings

Tyler the Creator/Taco

When: Wed., June 17, 8 p.m. 2015

Tyler, The Creator is famously known for being a member of the hip hop collective, Odd Future, a group whose members (Earl the Sweatshirt and Frank Ocean) have also achieved successful solo careers. However, in response to fans wanting Tyler to collaborate with former Odd Future members, he stated “Everyone’s on their own island.” In April, Tyler released Cherry Bomb, his critically-acclaimed third studio album. It features appearances by the likes of Pharrell Williams, Kanye West, Lil Wayne and more. Tyler has cited Stevie Wonder as his inspiration for the album and also wrote the opening track, “Deathcamp” in honor of his love for N.E.R.D, Pharrel Williams’ alternative hip-hop group. After Cherry Bomb had become available to preorder, Tyler tweeted, “It doesn’t matter much but I do want a No. 1 album just to go back to the niggas who said I wouldn’t.” The LA rapper debuted two new songs from the album, “Fucking Young” and “Deathcamp” at this year’s Coachella music festival, which began his world tour in support of the new album.
