    What's that? Hip hop without the drums? Does that exist? Is it even possible? Well, it does exist in some form. While hip hop is almost defined by its drums, there are instances where rapping takes place over an absence of drums. Whether it's Nas kicking off his Untitled album or Outkast getting galactic on ATLiens, some cool tracks have been created without that classic boom-bap rhythm.

    Throughout his career, Tyler, The Creator's always presented his opinions in confusing, often seemingly contradictory ways. Similarly to Eminem in his Marshall Mathers heyday, the Odd Future rapper's use of homophobic language has often been countered by his actions, most notably his friendship with Frank Ocean (which was addressed on "Rusty").

    This week we saw debuts from both Tyler, The Creator, and Young Thug. Neither artist is known to play on mainstream radio (though Thug gets a fair share of rap radio play), but each has a pretty supportive fanbase. Tyler managed to crack the top five, despite the experimental leanings of Cherry Bomb, while Thug remained locked out of the top 20, which can be partially attributed to his decision to drop the album on a Friday instead of a Tuesday.Check out this week's rap rankings below.

    Tyler, The Creator's new album, Cherry Bomb, is a bit of a divisive LP, but the one record that people seem to be agreeing on is the Kanye West and Lil Wayne collaboration, "Smuckers".Not only are the performances top notch, the instrumental is also quite an achievement, which makes sense, as it was apparently intended to be given to Jay Z and Kanye.

    Last week (April 13), we saw two big-time releases that both dropped in surprising fashion. Tyler, the Creator released Cherry Bomb, his fourth studio album, after announcing its release only a week prior. A more contentious project came from Young Thug, who, days before the release date, changed his Carter 6 to Barter 6 due to legal threats from Lil Wayne. Here are the first week numbers for both.

    In line with the recent (and awesome) trend of surprise albums, Tyler, the Creator announced Cherry Bomb just a few days prior to its April 13th digital release. The album’s single, “Fucking Young,” along with its attached snippet of the record's opening track, “Deathcamp,” showed a Tyler who is wearing his N.E.R.D. influence plain and proud, while also struggling with the trappings of fame and...statutory rape.

    Which of these is a member of the Hip Hop group Odd Future, and NOT the character of a children's show?A.) Dora the Explorer B.) Tyler, the CreatorC.) Thomas the Tank EngineD.) Bob the BuilderThe answer would be laughably obvious to the average rap fan, but it earned a contestant on Who Wants to Be A Millionaire $25,000 earlier today. The show (which apparently airs during the day now) was caught by a couple of OF fans, who made sure to screencap the hilarious question (view it in the gallery above).

    Tyler The Creator's Most WTF Moments On "Cherry Bomb"
    Apr 14, 2015 at 01:05pm
    Tyler The Creator is known for his crazy attitude, style, and lyrics. The latter of which have been shocking, cruel, grotesque, immature, and usually all of them combined, leaving the listener to ask himself, "WTF!?!?" Tyler gets really clever with it and it's a massive part of his appeal. His past work has tackled everyone from Justin Beiber to Spike Lee on topics including sex, family, drugs, and murder. The dude is out of his mind on the mic, and it's probably the reason most of us think he's dope.
