Tyler, The Creator Recalls Mental Breakdown And Asking André 3000 For Advice
Odd Future leader, Tyler, The Creator, continues dropping bombs (or dare we say, cherry bombs) all over timelines.
The video for his first single, "Fucking Young," off the new LP was released on his $5-per-month app along with other exclusive content such as his cartoon series The Jellies! and an interview with Seth Rogen that’s ROFL-funny.
In his new magazine Golf Wang, the 24-year-old rapper cracks jokes with Andrew “Noz” Nosnitsky and discusses his lack of sleep, not wanting to work with majority of the rappers out now, and having a mental breakdown that pushed him to reach out André 3000 and Earl Sweatshirt.
“The only thing that’s sad is the fact that my mansion is empty," he said. "My sister lives in Utah, my mom’s always in Sacramento and I’m always sleeping on a friend’s couch out here. I went home the other day to grab something and I walk in the fucking house and it’s no one home. It’s six rooms, no one there. That bummed me out so bad. Oh and my bed is too soft. Those are my only complaints. What the fuck? I had a mental breakdown like four months ago for a couple hours. I was sitting there just fully losing my mind."
Tyler even consulted a big name for guidance. “The only people I talked to about it was Thebe [Earl Sweatshirt] and André 3000," he said. "André was just like [in an André voice] “Hey man that’s just how it goes man, you just in a good spot.” Then I talked to Thebe about it and whoa… did he go left field. I remember texting him like, "Life is cool but the fucking cameras, I don’t know if people like me or they just want a photo for me for their Instagram. Am I a pawn? Am I just an object that they use me for? When they ask me for photos do they actually give a fuck about Tyler? Or do they just want a couple likes? Is it just like taking a picture next to a car for them?'”
But if you're seeking the #SadBoy version of Tyler on his upcoming project, he'll be M.I.A. Tyler recently tweeted:
I MAKE SONG EXACTLY ABOUT MY LIFE NOW UNFORTUNATLY....AND IM NOT DEPRESSED SO YOU WONT BE HEARING NO SAD SHIT FROM ME AT ALL. SMILE BABY
