Tyler, The Creator Shares Official ‘Cherry Bomb: The Documentary’
At long last, Tyler, The Creator's Cherry Bomb: The Documentary has hit the internet in its entirety. The Mikey Alfred-directed doc offers up a behind-the-scenes look at Tyler and friends working on his 2015 album, Cherry Bomb.
The 42-minute film, which officially premiered back in January and actually leaked online soon after, features appearances from the likes of Kanye West, Frank Ocean, Toro Y Moi, ScHoolboy Q, Kali Uchis, A$AP Rocky, Vince Staples, Lil Wayne and more. It also features plenty of Tyler's jokes and Jackass-esque zany antics.
In some clips, we see Tyler playing video games with Rocky and Vince. In others, we see the talented rapper/director/producer licking what appears to be vomit right off the sidewalk.
In a funny bit from the doc, we get to see the making of Tyler's "Buffalo" video, a visual that sees him rocking Whiteface and getting attacked by a lynch mob. One of the people on set, presumably one of the video's producers, goes on about how the then soon-to-be-labeled controversial vid was meant to spark some sort of dialogue about America. A few moments later, we hear Tyler saying he was only doing it because it looks cool. Gotta love it.
Considering Cherry Bomb dropped back in 2015, there's a chance a good bit of this footage was shot back in 2014, meaning the new doc is actually a peek into something that happened quite a while ago.
