If you have yet to hear of twenty-year-old rapper Tyler, the Creator, a member of the crazy rap collective Odd Future (Wolf Gang Kill Them All), you're more than likely not paying too much attention to indie music. This has been their year thus far, successfully reaching blowing-the-fuck-up status by killing every appearance they've made. From South by Southwest, to a head-scratching/mind-stretching appearance on Fallon, to Coachella where they stole the show enough to end up being featured in the Sunday New York Times, they make frenzied fans out of everyone who dares lay eyes on them.
Our Jam of the Day, "Yonkers," from Tyler's second solo record, Goblin, is a pulsing, bass-laden, lyrically evil track. Seriously, it's dark, but the awesome kind of dark that makes you grimace as he wishes death upon B.o.B, tells Jesus to quit bitching, and threatens to stab Bruno Mars in his esophagus.
Goblin is out today, pop on over to your local record store, or grab it here. You can check out "Yonkers" and its insane and disturbing video below.
