Tyler, The Creator Shares Thoughts On Obama And The ‘N-Word’ With Arsenio Hall

By Maurice Bobb

If you thought it seemed odd that Tyler, the Creator was a guest on “The Arsenio Hall Show” Thursday (November 7) night, you weren’t alone. The confusion was short lived, though, after Arsenio revealed that his 14-year old son was a big fan of the Odd Future frontman. Tyler went on to share some very interesting thoughts on why he abstains from drugs and alchol, in addition to his thoughts on the YouTube Awards, President Barack Obama and Quincy Jones.

“Some things aren’t for everyone,” said Tyler of his choice to live drug and alcohol free. “We live in a society where a lot of people are followers and they can’t make their set opinions. I have friends going to college for stuff their parents want them to go for and they’re not happy or anything. I just try to tell people to think for themselves and they’ll be way happier in the long run.”

By this time, the rapper/producer/designer/director had gotten pretty comfy on Arsenio’s sofa, putting his feet up and stretching out as he waxed poetic about various topics, “This couch is comfortable, they like black people on this network, this is crazy.”

Even though he was a performer for the inaugural YouTube Awards, Tyler still had some mixed feelings about how the show’s format.

“You would think that they would use that platform to give creative people who’s not on the Top 20 Billboards a chance to actually get recognition for being creative and innovative,” he said. “Instead, they did the same thing that the VMAs or the Billboard Pop Awards did with the Katy Perrys and the Justin Biebers. It’s actually a group of people who don’t listen to the radio and are sick of seeing the same weak stuff every day.”

For the rest of the interview, Arsenio fired off topics and the Wolf MC answered in his usual off-kilter way.

The N-word: “That’s just a word, you can take the power out of that word. Anybody can be that (n-word). I called the white dude in the back an N-word earlier. He got nervous.”

Obama: “I realized that he’s a n-word that figured it out.”

Quincy Jones: “Dude Quincy Jones is sick! I love fusion jazz and all that stuff and he has a song called ‘You Put A Move On My Heart’ with Tamia and the chords in there are so awesome I stole ‘em like a bunch of times. And ‘Body Heat’ is one of my favorite records. And! and and and, contrary to popular belief, Off The Wall is amazing.”

Odd Future’s carnival, Camp Flog Gnaw: “I’m actually throwing a carnival Saturday cuz I like carnivals and I’m in a position to do awesome stuff like that, so if you’re not weird or nothing, come to the carnival Saturday. It’s at the L.A. Coliseum and I’m gonna be onstage yelling for a hour and probably doing other weird stuff.”

Tyler The Creator Rages Against Will.I.Am And The Idea Of ‘Selling Out’

2013 Coachella Valley Music And Arts Festival ? Day 1

By Maurice Bobb

When it comes to the things he creates, Tyler, the Creator doesn’t believe in “selling out” just for money. The Odd Future frontman believes in his artistic integrity so much that he made a $ 1 million wager with Will.I.Am while backstage at Kanye West’s “Yeezus” tour stop in Los Angeles Monday (October 28) night that 10 years from now, he’d still be doing what he loves and not what he has to do.

The very idea of compromising himself made the Wolf MC so mad, though, that he aired out the Black Eyed Peas emcee on Twitter.

“I MADE A BET WITH WILL I AM FOR A MILLION BUCKS THAT I WILL BE MAKING MONEY 10 YEARS FROM NOW DOING WHAT I LOVE AND NOT WHAT MAKES THE MOST,” Tyler tweeted. “N—- SAID “THEN YOU MAKE A DECISION ON WHAT TO DO TO SURVIVE.”

“NO N—- THATS NOT HOW IT IS FOR EVERYONE. IM NOT GONNA MAKE MUSIC I HATE. IN 10 YEARS HE’LL BE 50 AND ILL BE 32 MAKING MOVIES ( not even in them) WATCH. WOLF HALEY DIRECTOR SECTION WILL BE POPPIN SUCK MY WHOLE SH–.”

Tyler’s epic rant went on for over 10 tweets.

There was the backhanded compliment: “HES SO TALENTED BUT HES MAKING BUTT SH– TO MAKE BREAD, USE THE CREATIVITY FOR SOMETHING TIGHT MAN.”

 Then there was the “I should have said this” moment: “I SHOULD HAVE BROUGHT UP THE FACT HE TRIED TO SUE PHARRELL ON SOME F— ASS Sh— BUT I WAS SO MAD HE INDIRECTLY SAID I WAS GONNA ‘SELL OUT’.”The insult tweet: “I CANT BELIEVE THIS N—- WAS PLOTTING ON MY F—ING DOWNFALL CAUSE HE MAKES SH– HE HATES AND DOESNT LIKE HIMSELF. WILL I AM IS A MARK.”

Then, of course, there was the “don’t believe me just watch” jab: “THIS N—- REALLY WALKED UP TO ME TELLING ME ABOUT MYSELF 10 YEARS FROM NOW N— F—- YOU NOW IMA GO OUT OF MY WAY TO PROVE YOU WRONG. IMA STAY POSITIVE AND FOCUSED LIKE I HAVE BEEN SO I CAN CONTINUE TO HAVE A TENNIS COURT IN MY BACKYARD EAT A D—.”

Wagers are usually made between friends, but judging by his venom for Will.I.Am and his “unvitation,” there’s no love lost between these two emcees.

In keeping with the usual dichotomy of his moods, Tyler interspersed his incendiary comments for Will.I.Am with kidlike excitement about meeting and taking selfies backstage with comedian Dave Chappelle.

“IN OTHER NEWS I MET DAVE LAST NIGHT AND I ALMOST STARTED TO CRY BUT I HAD NO OXYGEN FLOWING THREW MY BODY,” he tweeted. “DAVE AND I TAKING SELFIES DUDE I COULDNT F—ING BREATH HE WAS THE ONLY PERSON THAT I WANTED TO MEET OMG.”
