“Take your hoodie off, why you hide your face from me?
Make your fuckin’ mind up, I am sick of waitin’ patiently…” – Tyler the Creator, Boy With a Gun*
this past weekend,
i listened to tyler the creator‘s entire discography.
i was legit obsessed.
“wolf” was my shit when it came out,
but i listened to more sad pop/r&b vixen shit that i put it on the sidelines.
i was completely blown away by his album,
WHERE TF WAS I WHEN THIS CAME OUT?
*pulls up release date*
may 17th 2019
i was listening to something sad pop or r&b vixen.
this album feels like therapy to me right now cause…
The album centers around a bisexual character named Igor,
who happens to be Tyler’s dark side.
He is in love with a male who is still in love with his ex, a vixen.
the songs tell a story of him wanting the dude’s attention and love,
but the male is focused on his ex.
as the songs go on,
it starts to show his moving on and trying to understand his hurt.
the album before that,
deals with him coming to terms with his alleged bisexuality.
this shit is getting me through but it feels different.
i’m gonna font something controversial but…
I see why more males listen to hip-hop or male-centered music
vixens singing makes me feel sad and dwell on the hurt.
why did this dude hurt me?
why did he leave?
what did i do wrong?
should i beg for him?
males make me sad but then “fuck that wolf cause i’m the shit“.
i don’t dwell because i am more focused on “i am” statements.
i am better.
i am gonna move on.
i am the prize.
i am gonna glo up.
i am moving forward.
i don’t know if i’m making sense.
it might be the therapy tho.
these two songs are my shit:
