Can we all take a moment and appreciate the fact that one of today’s most-buzzed-about artists is a 20-year-old hip-hop Svengali who spits about rape and murder in a satanic growl, while dressed like a kid who just got home from summer camp? The future is now, my friends – and it certainly is odd. With Tyler, the Creator‘s sophomore set a day from release, it’s high time we jumped on the obscenely talented (and just plain obscene) L.A. native’s bandwagon, and single She provides the perfect opportunity. Over his own plodding percussion and woozy synth drones, the gravelly-voiced upstart details a series of unhinged fantasies about a girl who just became his next door neighbor. Though opened with a bloody, action-movie style vignette, the narrative ultimately fizzles into ambiguity; by the end, the emcee’s not sure whether he wants to sit down for a heart-to-heart, or simply have his way with the chick’s lifeless body. Odd Future’s resident crooner, Frank Ocean, ties the whole odd package together with some steamy chorus vocals. So, readers is Tyler’s first Booth feature – wait for it – swag? Then don’t miss Tyler’s Goblin LP, when it drops tomorrow, May 10.
