Hot off his first ever Grammy nomination as a solo artist, Tyler the Creator returns to his hometown of Los Angeles, California to perform songs off of his latest album Flower Boy. This is the rapper’s fourth solo album, and much like Tyler, the album has sent a shockwave through press headlines everywhere. Flower Boy heavily discusses sexuality and raises questions among fans if Tyler himself is gay or bisexual himself. Lyrics like “I’ve been kissing white boys since 2004” and “currently looking for 95’ Leo” have left fans questioning Tyler’s intentions behind the album as whole. However, regardless of Tyler the Creator’s sexuality, the album is packed full of features including A$AP Rocky, Jaden Smith, Frank Ocean, Lil Wayne, Rex Orange County, and many more.
Tyler the Creator’s show at the Shrine on April 11th will welcome him back to California just before he heads to Indio for Coachella. Naturally he will be surrounded by his wolf gang of friends, including opening acts TACO and Rex Orange County, but fans should expect surprise appearances from other features on the album as well.
