Tyler, the Creator’s New Leaked Album Suggests He’s Gay
The internet is buzzing that rapper Tyler, the Creator is about to come out as gay. His new album, Scum F**k Flower Boy, has leaked and lyrics on a few of the songs suggest that the rapper is gay.
High Snobiety reports:
The most interesting takeaway from the leak is the album’s lyrics, which can be interpreted as Tyler coming out. As well as pointing out the album’s name itself perhaps being indicative of this, Twitter users highlighted bars such as, “I been kissing white boys since 2004″ on “I Ain’t Got Time,” and the album’s seventh track “Garden Shed,” featuring Estelle, where Tyler raps, “That was real love I was in, Ain’t no reason to pretend” before spitting “All my friends was lost / They couldn’t read the signs / I didn’t want to talk / I tell ’em my location and they ain’t want to walk” later on in the song.Tyler’s been playing around with his sexuality for years, with a Tweet back in 2015 alluding to the fact that he may be gay.
In 2014, Tyler sat down with Larry King, where he discussed his hatred for phonies. King then brought up openly gay rappers, where Tyler agreed he thought it shouldn’t matter if someone likes dudes.
