It’s been a minute since we have been blessed with any new music from Tyler The Creator, but thankfully that has all changed thanks to his new surprise track Okra. Accompanied by a split screen, colourful video that sees Tyler riding his BMX, rocking hi-vis clothing and, potentially even previewing new colourways of his very successful Golf Le Fleur sneakers. Okars visuals are what we come to expect from T at this point.
The track itself (which you can hear below) has a lo-fi hard hitting beat, which is matched by Tyler’s relentless wordplay. The chorus for Okra has some fans thinking that it is a diss towards his ex Odd Future friends Man, now they go I cut off some friends. where they go. I stick to the plan, that’s the goal. Fuck these niggas man, that’s for sure. Check out the Rap Genius explanation by clicking the link, and be sure to let us know your thoughts.
