Tyler The Creator

Tyler, the Creator’s career took off when he attracted attention online for uploading songs to Tumblr. He founded Odd Future, also known as Wolf Gang or OFWGKTA (Odd Future Wolf Gang Kill Them All), and the collective released two mixtapes before later disbanding. Members included Earl Sweatshirt and Frank Ocean. In 2009, Tyler produced and released his first project Bastard. His debut studio album, Goblin, arrived in May 2011 under XL Recordings. The latest two entries of his discography are 2017’s Flower Boy and 2019’s IGOR, the later of which topped the charts as the No.1 album in the country. Not only was this Tyler’s first No. 1 album, but it’s also credited with being the first No. 1 album in history to be entirely self-produced and arranged by a rapper. As he’s consistently built a dedicated fanbase of people who are interested in his music, clothing line, and festival (Camp Flog Gnaw), Tyler ended the 2010s by getting the recognition he deserved throughout his entire career. The Odd Future alum now ushers in 2021 with an immense social media and physical advertising rollout (including billboards and benches) for his sixth studio album, Call Me If You Get Lost. The fanbase gets a taste of the album with the release of the first and only single off the album, “Lumberjack.”
