Last week, Tyler, the Creator announced his long-awaited new album Scum Fuck Flower Boy will be dropping on July 21. After revealing its cover art and tracklist, along with dropping two fire new tracks in the form of “Who Dat Boy” featuring A$AP Rocky and “911 / Mr. Lonely” featuring Frank Ocean, the album has reportedly leaked online. Those two tracks feature on the LP, as well as 12 other tracks featuring Khali Uchis, Estelle, Roy Ayers, Lil Wayne, Jaden Smith and more.
The most interesting takeaway from the leak is the album’s lyrics, which can be interpreted as Tyler coming out. As well as pointing out the album’s name itself perhaps being indicative of this, Twitter users highlighted bars such as, “I been kissing white boys since 2004″ on “I Ain’t Got Time,” and the album’s seventh track “Garden Shed,” featuring Estelle, where Tyler raps, “That was real love I was in, Ain’t no reason to pretend” before spitting “All my friends was lost / They couldn’t read the signs / I didn’t want to talk / I tell ’em my location and they ain’t want to walk” later on in the song.
Despite always being one to joke around and poke fun at himself, Tyler’s been playing around with his sexuality for years, with a tweet back in 2015 seemingly affirming these notions.
So who really knows what to make of his new record’s ‘revelations.’ Check out the best internet reactions to the Scum Fuck Flower Boy leak below.
