Artist of the Week: Tyler, the Creator


Along with Odd Future Wolf Gang Kill Them All, Tyler broke U.S. album chart by rounding up the top 5 with 'Goblin'.

A ringleader of Hip-Hop group Odd Future Wolf Gang Kill Them All, Tyler, the Creator broke the chart with his second studio album "Goblin". He and his Wolf Gang friends received a lot of attention from media outlets when they released "Yonkers" as the second offering of his new album.

Produced and written by Tyler himself, the song sparked controversy and became a viral hit when it came out. Containing some homophobic lyrics, it takes a jab at B.o.B, the Atlanta rapper's "Airplanes" partner Hayley Williams as well as "Nothin' on You" collaborator Bruno Mars.

More people turned their head to Tyler's work when B.o.B responded to the diss track. In a song called "No Future", he answered them, "If I was you I would be a little more cautious/ I'm way too high for you to look at/ The future ain't looking promising for these rookies."

Beside causing controversy, the song also gained praise from Kanye West through its music video. The clip which sees Tyler handling a cockroach was called the best video of 2011 by the rap mogul who has more than 3 million followers. That, undoubtedly, has also given them a big boost.

As pre-cursor to the new album went smoothly, he dropped the CD across the U.S. on May 10. In the opening week of the album, he soared to No. 5 on Billboard Hot 200. Furthermore, he topped Billboard Hip-Hop/R&B Albums and Independent Albums charts. He landed at the runner-up place at Rap and Tastemaker Albums lists. On Digital Albums rundown, he climbed to No. 4.
