Tyler, the Creator is known for using homophobic slurs, yet claiming he’s not homophobic. His debut album used the word “f*ggot” 213 times. The performer would explain it away by saying, “Well, I have gay fans and they don’t really take it offensive, so I don’t know. If it offends you, it offends you…If you call me a n*gga, I really don’t care, but that’s just me, personally.”
Now, in a twist of irony, Tyler might be revealing more about his sexuality on his upcoming album, Scum F*ck Flower Boy. According to Queerty, the project was leaked online and the lyrics to a few songs have some fans wondering whether or not Tyler is gay.
On the song “I Ain’t Got Time,” Tyler reportedly raps, “I been kissing White boys since 2004” and on the track “Garden Shed,” he speaks of the garden shed as if it were a closet. He rhymes, “For the garden that is what I was hiding / That is what love I was in, ain’t no reason to pretend,” before saying “Them feelings I was guarding, heavy on my mind / All my friends lost, they couldn’t read the signs / I didn’t wanna talk and tell em’ my location and I didn’t wanna walk.”
Of course Twitter went off after peeping his alleged lyrics.
Tyler has yet to speak out on the rumors, but stay tuned.
