Just last week Tyler The Creator’s newest project, Scum F*ck Flower Boy – was leaked for everyone to see! The album was originally supposed to be released July 21st but now that it’s out, everyone is talking about Tyler coming out of the closet.
Apparently, this isn’t the first time Tyler the Creator talked about this sexuality. Years ago, Tyler tweeted about coming out of the closer but according to him, no one was paying attention.
everyone: yoooooo i think tyler, the creator just came out on this song!!!!!

His new project, Scum F*ck Flower Boy has some lyrics that might explain those tweets above. In one of the songs,
“I Ain’t Got Time,” he raps that he’s “been kissing white boys since 2004.” Another song, “Garden Shed,” Tyler raps about how long he’s been feeling this way.
“Them feelings I was guardin’, 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 they ain’t wanna walk/Truth is, since a youth kid, thought it was a phase, Thought it’d be like the Frank; poof, gone, but, it’s still goin’ on,” raps Tyler the Creator.
Regardless of whether he came out or not, his fans are more shocked he didn’t decide to come out sooner! His new music shows us a more personal side of Tyler and his fans are approving!
Tyler, the Creator coming out as gay is some of the least surprising yet very surprising news I’ve heard in a while.
