Tyler, The Creator Announces New Album "Wolf" For May 2012
Wolf Haley says his second commercial outing is due out this May, and some of the content might shock fans used to his violent lyrics.
Spin Magazine recently caught up with Tyler, the Creator and his Odd Future Wolf Gang Kill Them All partners after filming of the collective's impending Adult Swim series "Loiter Squad" wrapped. During the interview, Spin got the skinny on Tyler's second commercial effort Wolf and what fans can expect from the California rapper/producer's next project.
According to the Golf Wang head honcho, Wolf is slated for a May 2012 release via Odd Future's Sony RED-distributed imprint. In a departure from his previous work, however, Tyler says that fans can expect less talk about rape and murder in his lyrics. He's says that now that OFWGKTA's blown up on such a major scale, he's less interested in the macabre topics he rapped about on Bastard and this past year's Goblin.
"Talking about rape and cutting bodies up, it just doesn't interest me anymore," he said. "What interests me is making weird hippie music for people to get high to. With Wolf, I'll brag a little bit more, talk about money and buying shit. But not like any other rapper, I'll be a smart-ass about it. Now it's just girls throwing themselves at me and shit, but I got a girl back home. People who want the first album again, I can't do that. I was 18, broke as fuck. On my third album, I have money and I'm hanging out with my idols. I can't rap about the same shit."
