Tyler, The Creator's upcoming album Scum Fuck Flower Boy was leaked early, but that isn't stopping the producer/rapper/innovator from releasing music on his own terms. On Tuesday night (July 11), the Odd Future co-founder released a new song, "Boredom."
We've all been here: over his recognizable mellow production, Tyler while literally rapping about how bored he is, zoning out and desperately wanting something to do. "Boredom" is the third official drop from Scum Fuck Flower Boy, after "Who Dat Boy" and "911/Mr. Lonely" at the end of June. The wacky "Who Dat Boy" video features A$AP Rocky, and "911/Mr. Lonely" features Frank Ocean. "Who Dat Boy" has also served as Tyler's first song to chart on the Billboard 100. Scum Fuck Flower Boy, his fourth LP and the follow-up to 2015's Cherry Bomb, is set for a July 21 release.
Tyler has been one of the biggest stories in hip-hop this month, as the leak of Scum Fuck Flower Boy has lyrics that have seemed to serve as Tyler coming out and revealing to the world that he is gay.
