Tyler, The Creator Goes Off On Will.I.Am

There’s nothing like a good old-fashioned Tyler, The Creator Twitter rant to start your day off right. Tyler, Odd Future’s ringleader, met Black Eyed Peas ringleader will.i.am (both groups are their own sort of circus, no?) at an unnamed star-studded event recently. Will.i.am offered some career advice along the lines of, “You make a decision to do what to do to survive,” i.e. get Fergie to rap about lovely lady lumps and whatnot. (Because making a living in music apparently is tantamount to staying alive in Cormac McCarthy’s The Road; things can get pretty grisly out there.) Tyler took Will’s resigned self-analysis as an implicit suggestion that he too would someday sell out by making music he hates for the sake of the almighty dollar. This, of course, did not sit well with the frequently indignant young Mr. Okonma, who took to Twitter with the following tirade. Enjoy!

Tyler also met Dave Chappelle, which apparently completed his celebrity bro-down bucket list along with Pharrell and Eminem.
