Tyler The Creator Says He Is Gay On New Album “Flower Boy”

Tyler The Creator has come out the closet and confirms that he is gay on his new album Scum F**k Flower Boy.

The album was somehow leaked online on Sunday night and some of the lyrics are raising some eyebrows. The album release date is set for July 21st. It’s either Tyler The Creator is a marketing genius or he is trolling hip hop fans. On the single “I Ain’t Got Time” featured on the album, Tyler raps about kissing white boys since 2004, and on another song “Garden Shed” he raps about the struggles of being in the closet.

“Them feelings I was guardin’, heavy on my mind / All my friends lost, they couldn’t read the signs / I didn’t wanna talk and tell ’em my location / And they ain’t wanna walk / Truth is, since a youth kid, thought it was a phase / Thought it’d be like the Frank; poof, gone, but, it’s still goin’ on,” Tyler The Creator raps on the single “Garden Shed.”

Tyler The Creator is known to spit controversial lyrics on his songs, but some folks on Twitter are saying that this shouldn’t come as a surprise. “Nobody cares that tyler the creator is gay, all he dated was white girls that look like white boys anyways,” one fan wrote on Twitter, while another fan added, “Everyone’s like “Tyler the creator is gay omg whaaaaat” like he hasn’t said he was already like six times before.” Some fans even questioned what took the Odd Future rapper so long to come out and whether or not this is a mere publicity stunt to sell records. “I’m not surprised Tyler The Creator is Bi/Gay I’m just wondering why it took him so damn long to come out the closet when we all knew lowkey,” Kiddie wrote.

The album which is officially titled Flower Boy is currently available on iTunes for pre-order. Frank Ocean is rumored to be on the guest list.
