    Tyler, The Creator has definitely created a crazy persona for himself. Whether it's his raps, his style, or his tweets, Tyler knows how to get people riled up (including himself). It makes us wonder whether Tyler is that way 24/7, or whether he calms down when he's not in the public eye. His personality is very much on the opposite spectrum of r'n'b crooner Frank Ocean, who gives off a much more mellow vibe.
