The Changing Face Of Hip-Hop: Odd Future Covers Spin Magazine

Tyler, the Creator and his Odd Future crew are covering the December issue of Spin magazine. Below are some excerpts and pictures:

Why should I care about this music or its ‘brilliance’ when the message is so repulsive and irresponsible?” Tyler’s response, via Twitter: “If Tegan and Sara need some hard d**k, hit me up!”

“That was the first thing that came to my head,” Tyler explains later, sitting on a Seattle hotel bed, after the show following the Vancouver date. “When I said that shit, I thought it’d be funny. But then I was like, I don’t even care anymore….I mean, I guess my dark side comes out in my music, but it’s just weird that so many people think I’m such a fucking evil person. I don’t fucking hate gay people. I’m probably one of the least homophobic rappers in the world. I don’t discriminate, because that’s what the fucking whites did to the blacks back then, and that’s what kids did to me at school, because I listened to different music and shit. So I don’t fucking discriminate.”

He continues: “If you listen to ‘Yonkers’ and ‘Sandwitches’ [from Goblin] and that’s it, you would think I’m an evil asshole. People might not expect me, goofy as fuck, pulling my balls out and wearing tie-dye and shit.”
