Tyler, The Creator
Hawthorne sucks… It’s a crazy place, and I’m happy that I was the weird one that got out.
I don’t like people around me sad. I like making people happy.
I really want to sing, but my tone of voice is really too deep to do what I want.
I just live life. I grew up in a Christian family, but, you know, the way Mom brought me up is to, you know, do you, to always be yourself.
For the record, I don’t worship the devil. I just hate religion.
I’m an optimistic guy. I’m one of those big dreamers. I’m one of those kids with that annoying imagination.
I’m not hip-hop. I’m Tyler.
I want to design jewelry for girls and guys… I’ma spread it out, but I’ma design, probably when I’m just designing furniture and buildings, I’ll probably being the jewelry thing, too.
Humans have voids, and you need things to fill voids… I didn’t have a dad to fill that male model void, so when I heard Eminem or freaking seen Dave Chapelle, that’s what I gravitated to.
I try to tell all the – not even the kids, even people older than me – to just be themselves. Don’t wear what I wear ’cause I wear it; wear what you like.
I never had a drink in my life. I don’t smoke or anything.
Rap is really just too conventional. Everybody does the same thing. No one ever pushes the box.
I think I’m cool. That’s all that matters.
I’m a pretty nice dude. I have fun, and people take it the wrong way.
I want to do films and have my name mentioned next to Wes Anderson and Quentin Tarantino. I don’t want my name mentioned next to other rappers at all.
