For those who think rap is dead, who fear the usurpation of rap by poseurs, trumped up hip-hop artists,
who cringe at the mention of censorship and decry the watered-down songs that pass for rap, do not lose hope, for there is
a young man who is ready to put the weight of the rap world on his shoulders and boldly go where no rapper in recent history
has gone before: to the top of the charts and into the spotlight.Thanks to his unapologetic style and lyrics and retro, aggressive
style of rapping, Tyler the Creator has cultivated a strong following of fans who want to see a resurgence in rap as a distinct
genre. Old school and young rap fans alike enjoy Tyler's stripped down songs that get at the heart of the communal experience,
not celebrating the partying and the accumulation of wealth but speaking to the frustrations of struggling through life and
struggling with what he sees as the sad state of rap. These sentiments have endeared Tyler to many, and his numbers grow stronger
every day. A rapper of the people, Tyler the Creator makes the music audiences have been waiting for.
Tyler the Creator
is setting out on a tour that will take him all over the country. In March he will be at The Tabernacle in Atlanta, GA, and
move on to venues like the Fox Theater in Pomona, CA and the Fox Theater in Boulder, CO in the month of April. In May he'll
hit the Roseland Theater in Portland, OR before finishing things up in June in Philadelphia, PA. Make sure you're there for
at least one the shows on the tour, as you don't want to be left out of seeing this incredible artist hit the stage.
About the Artist
Active in the hip-hop community since 2007 when he helped to form Odd Future, Tyler the Creator's
aggressive style of rapping has led to an equally aggressive rise to the top of the charts. Winner of Best New Artist at the
2011 MTV Video Music Awards, it's clear audiences have declared Tyler their new hip-hop leader and representative, an ambassador
of rap to the rest of the music world. Tyler's work has been described as both retro and futuristic but never boring. Some
of his style is unmistakably old school LA hip-hop and some of his style is as wild and eccentric as Lady Gaga. Not one for
labels, Tyler just wants to make good rap and make rap good again, and that ethic has earned him all sorts of praise, and
anyone who's been waiting for the next big thing in hip-hop should see him live!
at home and listening to an album simply does not compare to being there in the stands when a top performer takes to the stage,
and something you can see for yourself when you head out to a concert put on by Tyler the Creator on his current tour. If
you've never seen this incredible artist take the stage right before your very eyes, then it's time to change that. Being
there allows you to fully experience the music and everything that it is meant to be. You'll find yourself surrounded by fellow
music appreciators that like the same kind of tunes that you do, and you might even leave the show with a few new friends
under your belt. It doesn't get much better than being there in that kind of atmosphere, so make it out to see Tyler the Creator
as soon as possible when he hits a venue near your.
With the release of his 2011 album
Goblin, Tyler the Creator created a tsunami of waves in the music community. Unafraid to speak his mind, he challenged the
hip-hop guard, challenging them to stop being so concerned with style and appearances and make it about the music, about the
lyrics and the content, and it's that attitude and passion for his craft that made Tyler the Creator such an instant hit.
Fans who longed for a more grounded rapper flocked to Tyler to enjoy unfiltered hip-hop, the kind pioneered by guys like Tupac
and Biggie. And while Tyler is still in the process of finding his path as an artist and not quite yet in the same league
as the legends who preceded him, he is will on his way to championing a renaissance in rap.

this talented rapper used to design the album art for his future albums when he was a kid. Tyler the Creator truly is a fitting
name for this creative, young artist that is setting the music world on fire with his talent, attitude and moxie.
