B.o.B & Tyler, the Creator Exchange Shots

Earlier today B.o.B dropped “No Future,” a diss track aimed at Tyler, the Creator shocking rap fans and especially the Odd Future lead man.

Tyler hopped on Twitter to respond to the song. “Whoa,” he wrote. “I Don’t Think The ‘No Future’ Song Is Even A Diss. But, Ive Never Heard Him Spit Like That. Took Me By Surprise, Cus Its Tight.”

While it seems as if The Creator has more respect for Bobby Ray now, the good words ended there. “Still Hate That Airplanes Song Tho,” he said. “It Has The Same Chord Progression As Fucking ‘Love The Way You Lie’ And That One Song By Katy Perry. Actually, All The Music Now Days Have The Same Chord Progression, With That Dumbass Techno Synth, Or Like, Garage Band Drums.”

Bobby seemed to catch feelings after hearing Tyler’s barbs on “Yonkers.” “(What you think of Hayley Williams?) F**k her, Wolf Haley robbin’ ‘em/ I’ll crash that f**kin’ airplane that that faggot nigga B.o.B is in/ And stab Bruno Mars in his goddamn esophagus/ And won’t stop until the cops come in,” he spit on the song.

On No Future, B.o.B raps: “You see this shit I gotta deal with from these beginners?/ I ain’t circusin’ around with these clown ass niggas/ You snappin’ at the heels of a world class sprinter.

Later he adds: “Body blow, upper cut, I do more than bruise ya/ Keep fu**in’ with me, you ain’t gon’ have no future.”

B.o.B has yet to respond to Tyler’s tweets. —Elan Mancini

    odd future is the futurrrrre

  • MindState

    Haha.. I was wonderin if Bobby was gon’ respond to that.. That’s what’s up. I fucks wit both of em’ tho.. “Yonkers” is the most disturbing video I seen in a while and I mean that in a good way actually.. Tyler is a creative, talented dude and Bobby is a force to be reckoned with as well.

  • Odot

    It’s funny, with OF being so fresh in the game I didn’t take the BOB line in Yonkers as a diss, I mean, he didn’t really have a reason (to my knowledge) to diss him. But it’s dope that BOB responded, and it’s dope that Tyler isn’t actin’ all suprised like he didn’t throw the first punch. That’s a part of hip hop. I’m an OF fan myself, but BOB is tight. I’m interested to see where this goes.

  • collab

    love for them both.

    B.o.B is definitely more talented in the music…

    tyler def more willing to push boundaries.

    hopefully they squash and collab!


    bob would kill that weird ass dude OF is just trying to get attention

  • Just a busta

    B.O.B makes hip hop for middle class white girls. No contest.

  • omfgtom

    tyler makes hip hop for middle class white boys. yes contest.

    stupid people.



  • undergroundnigga

    You’re a fucking idiot, did you even listen to the fucking song?
    Did you pay attention to the dam lyrics? Hmm? Probably not, you probably watched only the music video thinking it explains the whole song. Fucking cunt ass dick rider . What’s the big deal? There fucking creative, destroy mainstream cats any fucking day.

    I rather listen to yonkers then shitty ass airplanes
    lets compare the lyrics, yonkers has metophors, and
    wordplay. Airplanes? 12 year old lyrics about dam airplanes

    Verse 1]
    I’m a fuckin’ walkin’ paradox, no I’m not
    Threesomes with a fuckin’ triceratops, Reptar
    Rappin’ as I’m mockin’ deaf rock stars
    Wearin’ synthetic wigs made of Anwar’s dreadlocks
    Bedrock, harder than a muthafuckin’ Flintstone
    Makin’ crack rocks outta pussy nigga fishbones
    This nigga Jasper tryna get grown
    About 5’7″ of his bitches in my bedroom
    Swallow the cinnamon, I’mma scribble this sinnin’ shit
    While Syd is tellin’ me that she’s been gettin’ intimate with men
    (Syd, shut the fuck up) Here’s the number to my therapist
    (Shit) Tell him all your problems, he’s fuckin’ awesome with listenin’

    I could use a dream or a genie or a wish
    To go back to a place much simpler than this
    Cause after all the partyin’ and smashin’ and crashin’
    And all the glitz and the glam and the fashion
    And all the pandemonium and all the madness
    There comes a time where you fade to the blackness
    And when you’re staring at that phone in your lap
    And you hoping but them people never call you back
    But that’s just how the story unfolds
    You get another hand soon after you fold
    And when your plans unravel
    And they sayin’ what would you wish for
    If you had one chance
    So airplane airplane sorry I’m late
    I’m on my way so don’t close that gate
    If I don’t make that then I’ll switch my flight
    And I’ll be right back at it by the end of the night

      1) Seriously? Dawg, the mu’f*cka starts up with talking about having threesomes with f*ckin’ dinosaurs. F*ck that. NEXT!

      2) From the verse you provided, where is the metaphors that smash B.O.B.? Even without a comparative word such as “like” or “as”, a direct comparison is a simile all day long

      3) If you are supporting O.F. because they are independent right now, then what will you do when they go major? Because that is all fine and dandy if you are some one who likes Pitchfork Media, but all I hear about O.F. is their antics, not their music. Translation: They seem like Hipster Rap, and no cares about that in the long run

      4) F*ckin’ with Grand Hustle is like punching a full grown African Bull Elephant while it is in heat; just not smart, especially when you are doing it just to get attention

      • airmattress

        1. That is a pretty poor way to start your argument.

        2. He was just comparing verses, not the verse where Tyler disses B.o.B.

        3. This just shows how little you know about OF. If you knew what you were talking about you would have known that they actually want to be mainstream.

        • zherow

          1) As a person who is a fan of lyrical based hip-hop and the like, the fact that Tyler, the Creator is talking randomly and haphazardly about f*cking dinosaurs is a Red Flag/Yellow Card in my book

          2) I am only comparing what undergroundnigga has given us, the readers of the comments, to compare, and what there is to compare is, from Tyler’s verse, is just sub-par

          3) My sentiments exactly. I do not know sh*t about OD because their antics overshadow their work (save Frank Ocean) and, again, I am only going by what undergroundnigga is saying that OD will “destroy MAINSTREAM cats any fucking day”. If you have to come with a gimmick to grab someone’s ear, 9/10 your sh*t sucks. And no, I never refuted that OD wanted to be mainstream; starting beef with their mainstream counterpart (plus Hayley and Bruno) seems like a “great way” to get attention, which is why I made my forth point, that messing with Grand Hustle is not a smart move. I mean, as I said, if the fact that B.O.B. is mainstream and OD is underground is being stressed here, then that is right along the lines of Media Pitchfork thinking; giving anyone a pass just because they are underground/obscure/independent. I say let an artist work speak for itself, and with OD, it is just not happening

  • dude

    I was comparing how theres actual thoughts put into the verses compared to “Airplanes” Whether, you like it or not, its defintetly more creative than “Airplanes”. Since you’re a fan of “lyrical hip hop”, then why a reg flag on yonkers? Many lyrical hip hop groups has lyrics similar to yonkers, horrocore genre style, such as gravediggaz, necro, etc.

    • zherow

      I got nothing against horrocore (Three 6 Mafia & Tech Nine fan for forever), but, again, just saying, from Tyler’s verse to B.O.B.’s verse, Tyler’s was lacking to me. Not saying that OD is not good, but, from the mere context, it just was not good. I mean, I give everyone a fair shot, but from what was given, B.O.B. > Tyler. I will just keep it Switzerland and hope they squash the b.s.

  • LS

    I guess it all comes down to preference

    I feel you my nigga but BOB will always have more bread because he apeals to most. If tyler wants to get his cash flow up he will eventually go mainstream and appeal to those “middle class white people” simple. Sorry to put this plug in hear but Cole World^ we goin far

  • keef

    bob.sucks….i dont care. he. sucks.

  • nobody666

    if you don’t like tyler, don’t talk shit. you don’t talk shit about anyone who has a fan-base.

    that’s your opinion which you ARE entitled to. he’s obviously gaining popularity, he’s underground and has almost 20,000,000 views… that’s some groundbreaking shit right there to take notice of, and apparently the likes of kanye already have.

    but seriously tyler is just fucking around when he’s talking about killing people or himself, eating cockroaches or calling out other artists for shock value.

    he’s also creating alter egos.. kinda like eminem and other famous artists. and it’s great, makes interesting stories in his raps that he can later elaborate on. the guy was 19 when he made goblin. so i look forward to what he’s gonna become when he’s older, props to him for also producing everything himself. the beat on yonkers freaks the shit out of me in a good way.
