Time Out says
Tyler, the Creator owes much of his current success to the controversy that he generated as the sophomoric figurehead of Odd Future, the anarchic California hip-hop collective that introduced Earl Sweatshirt and Frank Ocean to the world. But Tyler's last two records have moved beyond the shocking and often problematic rhymes of his past, taking a more open and confessional tone about the artist's own sexuality. On his latest record, Igor, Tyler weaves a tale about a man who is dating another man (who happens to also be dating his ex-girlfriend) wrapped around funky beats, R&B samples and guest verses from the likes of Kanye West and Playboi Carti. It's some of his most beautiful work to-date—and that includes the ice cream flavor he created for Jeni's. Rappers Jaden Smith (yes, he's the son of Will Smith) and GoldLink open the show.
