Tyler, the Creator

The co-founder of SoCal shock-rap collective-turned-entrenched millennial brand Odd Future Wolf Gang Kill Them All (Odd Future or OFWGKTA for short), Tyler Okonma is partially responsible for hip hop’s recent return to its anarchic, in-your-face roots. As Tyler, the Creator—not Odd Future’s most dazzling MC but perhaps its most galvanizing—the gravelly voiced 24-year-old spits crisp, colorful bars about super-scandalous topics, enraging right-wingers and PC purists alike with deliberately odious language and a give-no-fucks ‘tude. Wednesday’s all-ages show ties another Georgia Theatre show this week for the Concert Most Likely to be Picketed by That Christian Cult award—more over here.
