Tyler, The Creator might be the most boss tweeter. This is exactly where the game is at. Old & corny institutions like to tell us what “real” hip hop is or even what types of rap we should listen to and it’s super whack. The average 16 year old kid is most likely not going to agree with what some OG hip-hop guy says is cool. The average teenager is going to be like Tyler, call said hip-hop OG a “faggot” and do the opposite of what the OG would do. That’s just the reality of the situation. The good news is that I’m not as bitter about it as Tyler is. I think we need fresh people, ideas, and institutions in hip-hop. And attitudes like Tyler’s are super hip-hop to me. So watch out who you take your musical advice from. In my opinion it’s all about that #YoungBoySwag. I think Tyler, like most of the newer generation of hip-hop fans have tons of respect for their elders, and the people who came before them. They just want to be define themselves, and they will not apologize for how they do it. Like I said I think that’s super hip-hop. But what do I know, I’m biased.
