It’s been two years since the release of Cherry Bomb from Odd Future ring leader Tyler, The Creator, and now after two years, the Ladera Heights rapper has released what might be his most transformative album yet. Flower Boy takes a step away from Tyler’s more darker sounds such as Goblin, and takes the listener on a narrative car ride with the MC, where he discusses different hidden issues, such as his sexuality, while delivering an album that gives us a more richer sound and soul from Tyler – one of the tracks samples Outstanding by The Gap Band.
The project is not short on features either. With artist such as Jaden Smith, Anna of the North, and even Lil Wayne to deliver a short verse, Flower Boy is definitely worth the listen.
