Tyler, The Creator
Tyler, the Creator was born Tyler Okonma on March 6, 1991. His love of music began at the tender age of 7 when he would create imaginary albums complete with the tracklist. He formed and fronted a rap group calling themselves Odd Future Wolf Gang Kill Them All. The group released their first album in 2008 but Tyler was head on to craft his own album.

In late 2009, he released his debut album under the title "Bastard". Led by the title track and "French", it was placed 32nd on Pitchfork Media's list of the Top Albums of 2010 and the second single was ranked 61st on Pitchfork Media's list of the Top 100 Tracks of 2010.

Tyler released "Goblin" on May 10, 2011 on XL records. It is a concept album, continuing Tyler's dialogues with his fictional therapist Dr. TC, first heard on Bastard. The album which was led by "Yonkers" and "Sandwitches", entered at number 5 on Billboard Hot 200 and number two on Billboard R 'n' B chart.

With the success of "Goblin," Tyler toured the world with his group Odd Future, playing over 300 shows during 2011 and 2012.

Tyler was not taking a break, announcing that his third album titled "Wolf" would be released in 2013. He said it would contain instrumentals that he had made since he was 15. Wolf was released In April 2013 and charted #3 on the Billboard top 200. Wolf received critical acclaim and Tyler toured the US, Europe, Australia, and Japan in support of the album.

Tyler finished 2013 with his 2nd annual Camp Flog Gnaw Carnival in Los Angeles. Tyler Co-Headlined the event with Frank Ocean and brought out Kanye West as his surprise guest.

Tyler has recently become a weekend vegetarian. He also goes by "T" these days. GOLF!
