Tyler, The Creator Arrested For Starting A Riot At SXSW

Tyler, The Creator is known to stir up some trouble wherever he goes. Some find him entertaining, others find him obnoxious. Whatever your feelings may be for him, there’s no doubt that he can grab headlines. It appears that the Odd Future rapper got himself into a little bit of trouble this week at SXSW.

He was performing when the venue reached its maximum occupancy, so naturally, he encouraged his fans to storm the gate. He was arrested shortly after for a Riot-Class A Misdemeanor charge with a bond set at $25,000. You can view some clips of the incident …

Odd Future Denied Entry To New Zealand Due To “Potential Threat To Public Order”

Back in 2011 when Tyler, The Creator made his TV debut on Late Night With Jimmy Fallon, it seemed like the music world was terrified of Odd Future. Think pieces and reviews popped up everywhere, labeling Tyler’s video for “Yonkers” as disturbing or hailing it as genius. Fast forward three years and several albums later, and people still seem to be unapologetically terrified of Tyler and company’s well-documented antics. The hip-hop collective has been denied access to New Zealand and have cancelled their appearance at Rapture Festival this weekend. Immigration New Zealand commented on the situation to 3

It’s the first day back from the weekend, and like every Monday the highlights of the days past are slowly beginning to make the rounds online.

You may not have known it, but between Friday and now the 2013 Video Game Awards took place. Amidst the festivities, which were broadcast, the Odd Future offshoot known as EarlWolf (Tyler, The Creator and Ear Sweatshirt) graced the stage to perform their Grand Theft Auto V contribution, “Garbage.” It was the first – and probably only – performance of the song to happen since the game hit shelves earlier this year.

Oli Sykes And Ronnie Radke Exchange Blows Via Twitter

Before we know it, there will be #TeamSykes and #TeamRadke hashtags clogging up Twitter. I bet they are there already.

A few days ago Tyler, The Creator went off at the frontman of Bring Me The Horizon, Oli Sykes, for “stealing” his t-shirt design. He managed to call him a “Tumblr fag” and a “pussy” in a single sentence. Oli responded, though not directly to Tyler, by saying Nothing of me is original. I am the combined effort of everyone I’ve ever known & everything I have ever seen. You’d think that would be the end of things, but …

Tyler, the Creator Disses YouTube Music Awards… Which He’s Performing At

Odd Future frontman Tyler, the Creator has taken to Twitter to yell a surprisingly thoughtful diss (in its overall meaning) about the first ever YouTube Music Awards. While it may seem hypocritical seeing he is set to perform at the awards, his gripe is actually directed at himself in a sense, since he’s angry artists–not directors–are the ones getting credit for the videos. Read his full tweet below:

“YOUTUBE AWARDS COULDVE FUCKING HAD NOMINATIONS ON COOL CREATIVE VIDEOS SHIT BUT NOOOO AGAIN ITS THE MOST TEENY BOPPER POP SHIT. YOU ARE BUTT… WHY NOT GIVE AWARDS TO JUST DIRECTORS, THESE

Watch Tyler, the Creator’s Music Video for “Tamale”

Odd Future frontman Tyler, the Creator has shared a music video for his fan-favorite track “Tamale” off this year’s Wolf.  The “visual interpretation of Tyler’s mind” means lots of bright colors, golfing, and Tyler’s floating face as he raps the pretty calm part throughout. Keep your eyes peeled for Pharrell in there, too. Watch the video after the jump.

Keeping up with his past videos for Wolf, Tyler, the Creator also includes a video for part of another song at the end of this one, this time working in “Answer” while he sits on a worn couch and raps …

Required Listening: Tyler, the Creator, Domo Genesis, Earl Sweatshirt, and Hodgy Beats – “Look”

I’ve said it before and I’ll probably say it again, but if there is a better way to start the day than with new music then I certainly haven’t found it.

Though the individual members seem to be permanent fixtures of pop culture, Odd Future as a crew has been largely quiet in 2013. Their last collaborative release hit in early 2012, which we think is too damn long, and based on the track that arrived online early this morning it seems safe to say they agree.

Debuting out of the blue well after the sun set, “Look” is a …

Tyler, The Creator’s “1 Out Of 100″ Car Totaled

If you’d like to see some examples of how not to react when someone totals your car all you need to do is check out Tyler, The Creator‘s Twitter feed. Apparently a woman who was under the influence hit his car, which luckily was parked and he was not in. He’s understandably upset about the situation, as the car, according to him, is 1 out of only 100. Needless to say we are happy to hear that he, nor anyone else, were seriously injured in the accident.

He’s tweeted a couple of pics of the incident, as well as …

Tyler, The Creator Shares Trailer For New Film ‘Wolf’

Odd Future ringleader Tyler, The Creator has released a short trailer for an upcoming film he has created entitled, Wolf.

Released over the last day with little promotion in advance, the trailer for Wolf is about as vague as promotional trailers can be. Tyler is heard asking for a cigarette, which he then lights and proceeds to choke on, before informing his friends they can go ahead and kill someone. The scene cuts to a wide angle shot to reveal Tyler is on the side of an empty stretch of road watching two friends beat someone who is lying …
