Tyler, The Creator continues to evolve. A world removed from the dark days of Bastard and Goblin, the producer recently drew critical acclaim for his pretty arrangements on this year's Flower Boy. Now, might he be set for pop music domination?
At least that’s what the rapper’s Twitter bio, alluded to. Where it previously said “November is over," eagle-eyed fans noticed it was changed to “im making a pop album” for a short while.
Tyler is a notorious troll and has already changed his bio again; it now reads “slush puppy.” It's unclear how seriously fans can take the “announcement” if it even was one.
However, his Flower Boy album was already his most musically adventurous project to date and a far cry from the aggressive verses fans became accustomed to when he first made a name for himself. If anything, it wouldn’t be totally absurd for Tyler to try his hand at pop in the near future.
As always, stay tuned for updates as we get them. In the meantime, check out Tyler's first NPR Music Tiny Desk Concert below.
