Tyler, The Creator Reveals His Stance On Posthumous Music

Tyler, The Creator remains one of the best artists out right now. Overall, he is someone who is always expanding his craft and showing people what he can do. Moreover, he just released The Estate Sale which is a special expansion to his Call Me If You Get Lost release. It is yet another example of Tyler's artistry, and there is no doubt that people have been loving his latest release. At the end of the day, how could they not? Tyler's evolution has simply been amazing to watch.

Recently, Tyler, The Creator got to perform the album during an intimate show. This took place at the El Rey Theatre, and there were quite a few fans in attendance. Subsequently, Tyler performed his newest tracks, while also rapping over other ones. For instance, he performed a song called "Penny" which was made during the recording sessions for CMIYGL. The track went over great with the fans, however, prior to performing it, he did offer an interesting revelation.

Tyler, The Creator Makes One Thing Clear

As you can see below, he explains that he has a hard drive filled with incredible songs. Moreover, he would like to release a lot of them soon. This is because he won't be releasing posthumous music. On the whole, he thinks posthumous music is disgusting. So much so, he has made it an integral part of his will. “Some of these are so good I can’t just let ’em sit on my hard drive,” Tyler explained. “Because I have in my will that if I die, they can’t put no fucking post[humous] album out. That’s fucking gross, [they’ll get] like some random feature on it, some n***a I didn’t fuck with.”

What Tyler is doing here is very smart. There are plenty of artists who have gotten posthumous releases, and they were all quite underwhelming. Now, Tyler is making sure that he is not the next victim of this trend. Let us know what you think of all this, in the comments section below.
