TYLER, THE CREATOR

Label: Odd Future Records, RED Distribution
Recent releases: Cherry Bomb
These days Tyler, The Creator is shaping up to be more like Puff Daddy rather than Kanye. With three successful albums under his belt, the Odd Future head honcho is starting to lay the foundations for his own media empire – spanning record labels, radio, online and TV.
Can you really blame him to taking this next step? Tyler’s accomplished everything a young independent artist could wish for – three consecutive top 5 Billboard 200 debuts, nearly half a million albums sold, a gold single (“Yonkers”), collaborating with Lil Wayne and Kanye on the same song and working with his idol Pharrell. What more can I say?
Now it’s time for him to step up to the next level, outside of just music and focus on expanding his record label, internet radio channel and TV series, Loiter Squad. You know what the craziest thing about this whole thing is? Tyler just turned 24-years old.
