Tyler, the Creator To Will.I.Am: “F*CK YOU!”
Black Eyed Peas frontman will.i.am is remaining mum despite being panned and slammed every which direction by Tyler, the Creator. Earlier this week, Tyler took to Twitter to blast will, calling him an artist that “MAKES SH*T HE HATES AND DOESN’T LIKE HIMSELF.”
The Odd Future rapper claims he made a bet with the Black Eyed Peas lead singer that he would still be making music ten years from now that he loves, which is something will thinks will change as Tyler gets older. “You make a decision on what to do to survive” will allegedly told Tyler, leading him to launch into a Twitter tirade.
“NO N*GGA, THATS NOT HOW IT IS FOR EVERYONE. IM NOT GONNA MAKE MUSIC I HATE. HES SO TALENTED BUT HES MAKING BUTT SH*T TO MAKE BREAD, USE THE CREATIVITY FOR SOMETHING TIGHT MAN. I SHOULD HAVE BROUGHT UP THE FACT HE TRIED TO SUE PHARRELL ON SOME F*CK A** SH*T BUT I WAS SO MAD HE INDIRECTLY SAID I WAS GONNA ‘SELL OUT.’ I CANT BELIEVE THIS N*GGA WAS PLOTTING ON MY F*CKING DOWNFALL CAUSE HE MAKES SH*T HE HATES AND DOESNT LIKE HIMSELF. WILL I AM IS A MARK. THIS N*GGA REALLY WALKED UP TO ME TELLING ME ABOUT MYSELF 10 YEARS FROM NOW N*GGA F*CK YOU. NOW IMA GO OUT OF MY WAY TO PROVE YOU WRONG.”
Strong words, but do you think Will had a point? Do artists have to eventually sellout to continue making money? “Truthfully, I want to rhyme like Common Sense. But I did five mill, and I ain’t been rhyming like Common since,” Jay Z once rapped. Maybe he was onto something.
