Last month, Tyler, The Creator's always-rocky relationship with Australia came to an apex when he took to Twitter to announce "T IS NOW BANNED FROM AUSTRALIA."

SInce distancing himself from the rest of the Odd Future collective, Tyler, The Creator has made unexpected collaborations an integral part of his music. His last two albums have featured people as diverse as Erykah Badu, Stereolab's Lætitia Sadier, Toro Y Moi's Chaz Bundick and Roy Ayers, and his next might even have more surprising names. Tyler invited Zayn Malik (who recently departed One Direction) to record with him. Hilariously enough, Tyler once referenced Malik's former group on his and Earl Sweatshirt's "Sasquatch":

Chris Brown’s publicist has to be a millionaire. Just think about the amount of damage control this person has to perform, on top of managing an already-polarizing figure. Despite lengthy stints in anger management and continued, sometimes confusingly-rabid fan support (like this stuff), the enigmatic Brown continues to play the role of the antagonist, engaging in countless reckless feuds on the mega-public stages of nearly every social media platform available.

Last Thursday (May 28), Tyler, the Creator was going through old photos, and simultaneously tweeting his nostalgic feelings. After tweeting, "5 years later isnt that long but wow soooo much has happened," he wrote, "although it's no more, those 7 letters are forever." The "7 letters" seemed to refer to "OFWGKTA," thus many believed Tyler's tweets to mark the official end of Odd Future.

What's that? Hip hop without the drums? Does that exist? Is it even possible? Well, it does exist in some form.

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.
