Since beginning his career over a decade ago as Odd Future’s leader, Tyler, The Creator has forged his own path in hip-hop, crossing genres and surpassing expectations. In 2009, Tyler dropped his debut mixtape, ‘Bastard,’ referencing vivid scenes of violence and his broken relationship with his father. The LA native’s 2011 debut album, ‘Goblin,’ generated controversy for its homophobic language, but he followed up with a more well-rounded project with 2013’s ‘Wolf’ and drew on a variety of musical influences on 2015’s ‘Cherry Bomb.’ Tyler showed further personal and musical growth on his fourth studio album, ‘Flower Boy,’ which features the rapper exploring his vulnerability and sexuality. 2019 brought the critically acclaimed No. 1 album, ‘IGOR,’ which is entirely written, produced, and arranged by Tyler.
