17. Golden (2011)
The last appearance of Dr.TC on the album, Tyler continues to address the problems he's encountered with his newfound fame over yet another eerie beat. Tyler addresses his fans, the lack of time he's spending at home and more importantly, the missing Earl.
15. Jack and the Beanstalk (2009)
One of the underrated tracks on his debut album, Tyler refuses to spit a hook - which in turn becomes the hook - that's wedged in between verses of solid lyricism.
13. Radicals (2011)
Taking the bridge from the track Pigions, Tyler turns it into the hook and goes hype on this track, spitting advice to all the kids in his generation. Advice worth nothing too considering his success.
11. Trouble On My Mind (2012)
Fear of God 2: Let Us Pray
gets Tyler to feature on a track to further propel his image and camp into the mainstream. Though both artists go hard on the track, they're both obviously having fun with it as exemplified by the video.
08. Tron Cat (2011)
Tyler's alter ego, Tron Cat, takes over on this song and it's the Odd Future
leader at his explicit, volatile best. He spits lyrics that'll make a younger Eminem
cringe while displaying his huge talent as a rapper - though he professes to have none - and goes on to spit lines that'll make you question his sanity.
07. Yonkers (2011)
Arguably the video and song that propelled Odd Future
and Tyler himself to fame, he's gone on record to say that he hates this track but it's definitely one of his best. With an irresistible beat that haunts you, lyrics that are not only catchy but memorable, and a video that's shocking, Yonkers is a great track.
OF Tape Vol. 2
Viewed as a follow-up to the original Analog, Tyler has discouraged that thought several times but with the beat and lyrics, it could very well be the follow up. Though, this track trumps its predecessor thanks to features from Frank Ocean and Syd, the kid.
04. Bastard (2009)
The first track of Tyler's debut album hits you hard as he addresses problems in his life with witty wordplay, double entendres and apt lyricism. Tyler also does this over a piano piece he wrote and violins that draw you in.
03. Pigions (feat. Wolf Haley) (2010)
Earl and Tyler go hard on a beat produced by Tyler, himself. It's got all the qualities of a classic Odd Future
track with the memorable hook, a controversial bridge and two talented rappers spitting dope verses.
Tyler and Earl took the Gucci Mane
track, Lemonade, and completely ethered it. Over a sped-up version of the Lemonade beat, both rappers spit vicious jaw-dropping lines as both rappers lyricism, wordplay and talent is on full display here. With no hook, both rappers showcase why they're such promising, young artists.
In honor of his 22nd birthday, HNHH has broken down twenty of Tyler, the Creator's top tracks.
Tyler, the Creator turns 22 today and with a discography three albums deep, countless songs he's produced for and (according to him) sixteen videos he's directed to date, it's hard to think of the Odd Future leader as being so young. His career has risen dramatically in the last two years and he continues to defy odds and critics alike with his explicit lyrics, alter-egos but overall genius. Creator and leader of one of the most controversial but talented groups in modern-day rap, Tyler, the Creator can celebrate his birthday today knowing that he has a long career in front of him. HNHH decided to honour the young L.A rapper by listing his twenty top tracks. Hopefully this will hold you over as we highly anticipate the April 2nd release of Wolf.
