Tyler, The Creator: Flower Boy LP
Odd Future co-founder and mini mogul Tyler The Creator issues his fourth studio album, Flower Boy on Columbia Records. Debuting at No. 2 on the US Billboard 200, the fully realized follow-up to 2015's Cherry Bomb is ushered in by the formidable singles "Who Dat Boy" with A$AP Rocky and "911 / Mr. Lonely" with Frank Ocean, Steve Lacy and Anna of the North and finds Tyler maturing as both a writer and producer. "Built on memories and not relying on nostalgia too heavily, Flower Boy is a beautiful album about the realities of growing up," writes Pigeons And Planes. "Losing friends, reminiscing, but not glorifying the teenage days when jokes were funnier the more offensive they are."
