    Tyler, The Creator Reacts To Finding U2's New Album On His Phone

    This past week, Apple unveiled the iPhone 6 and iWatch at a highly-hyped conference in Cupertino, CA. But perhaps the biggest news story to emerge from the event was U2's surprise arrival to perform new material, announce a new album, and (surely the strangest part) inform iTunes users that the album was, at that very moment, in their libraries, free of charge.

    The Odd Future brand continues to expand into arenas both likely and unlikely. They've got an expansive merchandise line, their own TV show, and their own festival, among other things. This latest move, an Odd Future radio station, isn't exactly unlikely, as obviously these are a group of musical cats. The crew has teamed up with DJ Skee's new DASH radio platform to host a 24/7 channel.

    Ferguson. The ALS Challenge. Rihanna apparently still banging Drake. "Anaconda" threatening the drown America in thirst. Etc., Etc. There wasn't much new material to come out of the hip-hop community, but the artists still had plenty to talk about and cause controversy over during the past couple of days.

    In an ideal world, Remy Ma would be in this edition of 140 Bars Or Less: Tweets Of The Week instead of being in jail for another week. But, then again, Remy Ma wouldn't have been serving time in the first place. Still, life goes on and the tweets still roll.

    Celebrities, including rappers, have been inking endorsements deals with companies since the dawn of advertising. Hip hop music is more popular and marketable to the mainstream now than ever before, so these kinds of deals are on the rise. For many of these hip hop figures, endorsements deals are not only a way to make large sums of money but also aid in the promotion of their own music and brand.

    Tyler The Creator has never been afraid to speak his mind. During Thursday’s episode of BET’s 106 & Park, Tyler sparked up some more controversy for his life when he said some choice words about Australian pop star/rapper Iggy Azalea

    Earlier in the month, it was announced that Eminem would be making hip hop history by becoming the very first rapper to headline Wembley stadium.  Not only that, when tickets went on sale last week, Em managed to sell out the gigantic venue almost immediately, resulting in a second date being added. The opening act for the momentous occasion has now been announced, and it happens to be none other than Tyler, The Creator and his Odd Future cohorts.

    Tyler, The Creator Acts Out At Buzzfeed Office, Staff Live Tweet Their Terror [Update: Tyler Responds]
    May 14, 2014 at 06:29pm
    Tyler, The Creator is not known for his composure, which probably should have raised a red flag before Buzzfeed invited him to hang out at their office today. While it's not clear why he was there, the Twitter accounts of some staff members were able to broadcast just the type of activity that was going on during his visit. It seems as though Tyler spent much of his time screaming incoherently, liberally using the N-word, making distasteful jokes about Frank Ocean, and shooting random people with a Nerf gun-- so pretty much just an average hour in the rapper's life.

    Since Odd Future's first break into the public eye, the anticipation for an Earl Sweatshirt and Tyler, The Creator joint album has existed. The name of the hypothetical album, EarlWolf also dates back to this time, and tracks like "AssMilk", "Lemonade" and more recently, "Whoa" have solidified the chemistry between the two rappers.

    If you recall, Tyler was arrested at the Austin-Bergstrom International Airport in Texas on Saturday after he urged fans right outside of the venue to break past the barriers set up keeping them out of the show, which was already at capacity. In doing so he (allegedly) incited a riot of sorts.

    Perhaps Tyler should have behaved himself better, but when you invite the man responsible for the motto, "kill people, burn shit, fuck school," to a festival, perhaps you best expect a little chaos. If you're not entirely sure just what happened, earlier this week Tyler encouraged a crowd at Austin to enter through the barricade to check out the show as the venue was already at capacity, which incidentally started a riot. He also was evidently chucking eggs at folks around the festival.

    OFWGKTA (Odd Future Wolf Gang Kill Them All), more commonly referred to as Odd Future, made a huge splash in the rap world when they burst onto the scene in late 2009 with crew leader Tyler, the Creator's critically-acclaimed Bastard mixtape. Bringing dark, lo-fi sonics, even darker lyrics and off-kilter humor to the table, the rest of the crew would soon follow him into the limelight.

    "Damn, I swear sports and music are so synonymous/ Cause we want to be them, and they want to be us" - Drake Rappers and athletes have always had close ties, but it seems we're seeing more and more crossover between sports and music. Much of that can be attributed to Instagram, which has created a need for every celebrity to flex the chance encounters they have with other celebrities.   Some of these pairings are certainly more organic than others, but if you're a sports stan, and a rap stan, they're definitely worth a look.

    Many emcees are noted for their serious, aggrandized personas so it becomes easy to forget that for the most part, Hip Hop is about fun and many rappers use their verses to tell some jokes (isn't that why they call them punch lines?).
