Tyler, the Creator, who was recently arrested on susipicions of vandalism spoke to the Fader on his Photography book, Odd Future & wanting to be in a rock band. Read excerpts below.
On His Photography Book:
"I’ve been taking pictures since I was 15. I fucking just thought it would be cool to just put the photos up...All the photos in the book, like 80% of them are before, like, we were even famous, or we were even big. Most of those are old, some of them have never even been on the Internet. The photos of Earl in there, them shits are old as fuck. And then part two will probably be 2011 and part three will be [the future]."
On OF And Joining a Rock Band:
"I’m in a Punk band. It’s called Odd Future. But I really wanna be in a [Rock] band. Rock bands are way cooler than rappers, in general. When people make end of the year lists, I wanna be near Trash Talk and The Strokes or some shit instead of fucking rappers that’s up-and-coming. I hate that shit. That shit sucks."
