Tyler, the Creator

Tyler, the Creator - Flower Boy (8/10)

With Flower Boy, West Coast rapper Tyler the Creator returns with his most well-crafted album to date. Coming a long way from his first full-length project, Goblin, Flower Boy brims with expansive and intricate production paired well with introspective and thoughtful songwriting. The contagious Neo-Soul-esque “See You Soon” camouflages Tyler in a garden of brightness and uplift, while the grimy, eerie “Who Dat Boy” takes the listener back to Tyler’s dark beginnings in Goblin. It is evident that Tyler, the Creator has grown up and come into his own with Flower Boy, not only as an individual but as an artist as well.
