Tyler The Creator Releases "Earfquake" Video With Tracee Ellis Ross

Tyler, the Creator is back with new music and new visuals for his fans. The Odd Future member released his fifth studio album, Igor, today and dropped a video to accompany his project's leading single, "Earfquake." The look that Tyler serves for his newest visual matches the eccentricity of his appearance on the artwork for his album. In the music video, the 28-year-old sports a platinum blonde bowl cut, braces, dark sunglasses and a powder blue suit for the ultimate "no f**ks given look."

The California native isn't alone in the clip. Black-ish actress, Tracee Ellis Ross, starred alongside him in the talk-show themed music video. The visual opened with Ellis Ross portraying a nerdy, talk show host named Pearl Edwards who was introducing Tyler to the audience. The two had some quick back-and-forth banter, with her asking Tyler to do his best "to not smoke cigarettes or anything that smokes or lights fire." The exchange between the two was the perfect balance of awkward and amusing. Tyler busted into his performance of the song with assisted vocals from Playboi Carti, although the rapper himself was not present in the music video.

Make sure to check out the music video above to see Tyler throw caution to the wind and smoke a cigarette anyways against "Pearl Edwards'" wishes.

Premiere: Diamond D Stays "Maintaining" His Bronx Ties With Lord Tariq & Peter Gunz, And A-Kash

The Bronx is forever the birthplace of hip-hop and those that were around during its infancy still rep it 'til this day. A prime example of this type of love for the art is the enormous production style of BX's own, Diamond D. For over three decades, he's cultivated the true school boom-bap hip-hop sound and his latest album, Diam Piece 2 continues the tradition.

Featuring some of the music game's strongest MCs in Fat Joe, Snoop Dogg, Talib Kweli and others, Diamond produces the tracks and lets the rappers that he admires spit the facts. Of course, it wouldn't be right if the music man/rapper didn't get some bars to flex himself, ya know? But with so many ill word spitters to choose from, he's elected his BX bredren in Lord Tariq & Peter Gunz (yes, that Gunz of VH1's Love and Hip-Hop) to shine with A-Kash on his new single, "Maintaining."

The video, which looks to be in the heart of the Bronx, on some familiar steps to a brick housing unit, screams of the essence of kicking rhymes to your boys while sipping on that brown liquor (I have a feeling that's a Henny bottle they are sharing folks...). Tariq is still sharp with the words and wit. Just has a lil' salt and pepper in his beard to show he's aged well with life. Cameos by legends Sadat X and Grandmaster Caz make this super official.
