Tyler, the Creator to Tone Down Violent Lyrics on Third Album
If you are expecting Tyler, the Creator to spit more scatological rhymes and lyrics about stabbing people on his upcoming album 'Wolf,' think again. The controversial rapper will apparently tone down his violent lyrics and create "hippie music" for people to get stoned to on his third solo effort. Gee, that sounds, uh, great?
"Talking about rape and cutting bodies up, it just doesn't interest me anymore," Tyler tells Spin in its December issue featuring his crew, Odd Future, on the cover. "With 'Wolf,' I'll brag a little bit more, talk about money and buying shit. But not like any other rapper, I'll be a smart-a--- about it. "
Tyler is not worried if he disappoints fans who are expecting him to make more "rape-y music" that made 'Goblin' such a talked-about album in 2011. Within the past year, the 20-year-old California native's newfound fame and wealth has given him a fresh perspective on life. "People who want the first album again, I can't do that," he explains. "I was 18, broke as f---. On my third album, I have money and I'm hanging out with my idols. I can't rap about the same s---."
So has Tyler, the Creator finally grown up? We will have to wait and see when 'Wolf' hit stores in May 2012.
