Tyler The Creator Thinks Solange Is “Awesome”

    Tyler, The Creator

    His week wasn't perfect—it's hard for it to have been when it resulted in his getting arrested in the airport on the way out of town—but Tyler showed once again that he never lacks creativity, showing up in a number of different ways and with a number of different artists throughout the week. He had his own slew of headlining shows, but you could also find the Odd Future leader skateboarding down side streets or popping up with BadBadNotGood. Of course, there was the whole riot thing—thank God no one was injured at that one—but that's almost par for the course for Tyler at this point. The fact is, even setting that aside, his shows were among the hardest to get into all week.

While Solange is receiving the brunt of the criticism for the elevator attack on Jay Z, Odd Future actually found the incident to be quite amusing. During their interview with HuffPost Live, the group spoke on a myriad of topics and gave their thoughts on Solange and her elevator skirmish with Hov. Apparently, she has a fan in Tyler the Creator.

“You know why Solange is awesome?” asked Tyler. “I met her before and she’s just herself and she’s cool and she likes regular shit. By the way, Solange, your song ‘Crush’ has been one of my favorite songs for years.”

Earl and Tyler also commented on the incident as well.

“She had to get something off her chest,” said Earl, while Tyler said, “It’s entertaining, but whatever.”

The group also spoke on Michael Sam, Justin Bieber’s reckless behavior, Pharrell, and more here.
