2011 Review (So Far): Tyler, The Creator

OFWGKTA and their de facto leader Tyler, The Creator have been making waves on the internet and underground hip hop scene since Tyler released his 2009 album Bastard. Throughout 2010, the members of Odd Future released mixtapes and LPs for free via their Tumblr with the albums Earl by Earl Sweatshirt and BlackenedWhite by MellowHype receiving a lot of press in the blogosphere.

Earlier this year, Tyler, The Creator released his video for the song Yonkers, received a cosign from Kanye via twitter and is now set to release his album Goblin on May 10th via XL recordings. This track is absolutely incredible both lyrically and the production. And then there’s the video…I’ll let you just watch that part. Be sure to pick up Goblin in a couple of weeks.


  1. Bastard was such a good release. After hearing "Sandwitches" and "Yonkers", and hearing he did work with Pharrell, I can't wait to hear this album.
