Tyler, The Creator returns with some controversial visuals for BUFFALO, including “Find Your Wings,” off this year’s Cherry Bomb. Directed by his alter-ego, Wolf Haley, it’s full of racial imagery to match the racially charged lyrics.
Opening with an all-white Tyler hanging from a noose, he spits at critics and runs from an angry pitchfork wielding mob. Critics of his lyrics, his treatment of Supreme, the Mountain Dew commercials, and his power as an influence on young people. Unfortunately, these hilarious videos were pulled as he received a shit ton of flack for them. It then cuts into a Soul Train inspired segment for the song “Find Your Wings.” Syd Tha Kyd, Kali Uchis, Roy Ayers, and the whole crew join Tyler on stage.
Keep making those videos, Wolf Haley. One day, everyone will know you.
You can grab a copy of Cherry Bomb over at iTunes. And if you missed him at Riot Fest or opening for A$AP Rocky – you fucked up.
