Some of you are still reeling over JJ Watt’s Myspace page that has been surfacing around the internet lately—and for good reason—that shit is hilarious. For those who haven’t, we advise you do. On the opposite side of the spectrum, but equally as commanding in his respectful field, Tyler, The Creator’s Myspace account also reveals an early glimpse into the rapper’s prolific career. There lies six raw tracks, titled “Bapes Freestyle,” “Bring the Hi Hat In,” “Bapes,” “Hi to Me,” “Lilo F*cks Stitch” and “Lisa.”
Although the tracks definitely need some fine tuning, it’s important to note that even then, Tyler’s signature low-tempo lyrics and jazzy bass lines are still evident.
The songs were recorded somewhere around 2008, just prior to the release of his debut mixtape Bastard. Although the tracks definitely need some fine tuning, it’s important to note that even then, Tyler’s signature low-tempo lyrics and jazzy bass lines are still evident. A type of flow that has led to the meteoric success of both himself, his equally talented friends, and an entire sub-culture revolving around their lifestyle.
When you’ve finished peeping his old Myspace tracks, be sure to chime in on the current state of Tyler and his friends who have been making waves for some time now. The group have their very own eccentric line of clothing that has seen collaborations with the likes of Vans, along with a festival called the Camp Flog Gnaw Carnival, which just celebrated its recent edition this past November.
