Tyler, The Creator Drops “OKRA”
Less than a month off of his tour promoting (Scum Fuck) Flower Boy, Tyler, the Creator took to Twitter this afternoon to release a loose track with a visual titled “OKRA”. Tyler teased the track in January by tweeting the title, but released it just after noon today. We can assume that the track was originally going to appear on Flower Boy seeing as Tyler referred to it as a “throwaway track” on Twitter, but we’re lucky he released it now because this shit slaps.
Following the format of the “FLOWER BOY: a conversation” video that was released in January, the “OKRA” video produced by Happy Place is a split screen visual. Throughout the video we see Tyler riding a bike in the desert, rapping while seated in a chair, a close up of his gold tooth studded mouth rapping, and bopping around in a room with a strobe light with other Odd Future members… all while wearing his signature shoe, Golf le Fleur, who sponsored the video.
According to Tyler’s Twitter he will “promote this song for the next 5 days, then continue to live a normal life, thank you, holla”.
You can check out the lyrics of the bop below that feature shoutouts to Timothée Chalamet, Ron Artest, and, obviously, Wolf Gang.
