Tyler, The Creator Responds To will.i.am

The 28th Annual MTV Video Music Awards - Press Room

Where Is The Love?

Let’s get it started. Tyler, The Creator and will.i.am ran into each other at the Yeezus tour in L.A. Monday night. According to Tyler, will.i.am criticized the Odd Future front man’s longevity, stating he will soon “sell out” for the mighty dollar.

Yesterday, Ty kept the CAPS locked on Twitter to share his experience with his followers and to respond to will.

I MADE A BET WITH WILL I AM FOR A MILLION BUCKS THAT I WILL BE MAKING MONEY 10 YEARS FROM NOW DOING WHAT I LOVE AND NOT WHAT MAKES THE MOST. NIGGA SAID “THEN YOU MAKE A DECISION ON WHAT TO DO TO SURVIVE” NO NIGGA THATS NOT HOW IT IS FOR EVERYONE. IM NOT GONNA MAKE MUSIC I HATE. HES SO TALENTED BUT HES MAKING BUTT SHIT TO MAKE BREAD, USE THE CREATIVITY FOR SOMETHING TIGHT MAN.
 

I SHOULD HAVE BROUGHT UP THE FACT HE TRIED TO SUE PHARRELL ON SOME FUCK ASS SHIT BUT I WAS SO MAD HE INDIRECTLY SAID I WAS GONNA ‘SELL OUT’. TRUTHFULLY 89% OF FAMOUS PEOPLE ACTUALLY FUCKING SUCK AND DRESS LIKE IDIOTS. IN 10 YEARS HE’LL BE 50 AND ILL BE 32 MAKING MOVIES ( not even in them) WATCH. WOLF HALEY DIRECTOR SECTION WILL BE POPPIN SUCK MY WHOLE SHIT. THIS NIGGA REALLY WALKED UP TO ME TELLING ME ABOUT MYSELF 10 YEARS FROM NOW. NIGGA FUCK YOU NOW IMA GO OUT OF MY WAY TO PROVE YOU WRONG
 

IMA STAY POSITIVE AND FOCUSED LIKE I HAVE BEEN SO I CAN CONTINUE TO HAVE A TENNIS COURT IN MY BACKYARD EAT A DICK. IRONY IS THAT BEHIND THE FRONT, THE FIRST BLACK EYED PEAS ALBUM, WAS THE FIRST RAP ALBUM I EVER LIKED WHEN I WAS 7. GREAT BEATS HAHA

    Not a fan of Tyler’s music but I cosign everything he said. The first BEP album was great but their quality of music has gone downhill since.

    I don’t always agree with Tyler, The Creator’s actions but I can’t fault him in his response here. Not sure why will.i.am. decided to offer up that commentary to Tyler, The Creator.

  • RINGMASTR

    I’m not a fan of Tyler or his music but he’s right on this one. That first BEP album was cool then they sold out and got extremely corny. Can’t knock will.iam’s hustle but also can’t listen to his ish.

    I co-sign the crap out of what Tyler said, but I also agree with Will.I.AM. Here’s why. Will isnt hating on Tyler, he was speaking from experience. For example, this debut BEP album that everybody seems to love in this post, it was straight up hip hop. Sample based beats, they were breakin in the videos, spittin conscious lyrics and all that. The group was Will.I.AM, Apple de AP, and Taboo. No lil white female pop princess. Guess who bought it….the 3 niggas in the group and apparently 7 year old tyler. BEP Struggled, comparitively low bookings, comparitively low to average sales, and light critical acclaim. So after some time, BEP adjusted the formula a lil bit, made their music a little more accessible to a casual audience (I.E. got a lil pop-ish….AKA sold out) and added Fergie to the group and they’re selling out madison square, touring globally, album pre-sales flying off shelves and everybody buyin they parents a house.

    Will wasnt hating on tyler, he was offering a caveat. Making music you like is cool, you just better hope its music a casual audience likes too because if not you gon be tryin to maintain that tennis court in your backyard with critical acclaim bucks. Not the most liquid asset in the world…

      What Tyler is saying is its not all about the money. And that staying true to yourself, and maintaining, is better than having all the money Will.I.Am has, and being unhappy with who you’ve become. Exhibit A: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tSlxsQgZMhA

        LMAO!!! I’ve never seen that vid! He does look like he hates himself !! LMAO

        But I’m not saying what tyler is saying is wrong at all! I agree with tyler completely, but I also see alot of merit in what “I Think” will was trying to say to tyler. I “think” will was simply trying to warn Tyler that fame is fleeting by nature and maybe making a few sound business decisions will help you down the line a little longer than sticking exclusively to what you like or disregarding mass appeal. Again, Tyler is correct, but I think WIll has seen some sh*t that would make him give that advice.

    Wiil.I.am Music started to suck ass when he went to do this kind of Euro Dance David Guetta shit. Precedent albums with Fergie where good and creative
