Tyler reveals himself as the Grinch that stole everyone's Yuletide Spirit.


After releasing "You're A Mean One, Mr. Grinch" in a disguised manner, Tyler, the Creator is ready to reveal his sinister background, on a piano-driven track featuring Fletcher Jones. The new song, "I Am The Grinch," will feature prominently in the reboot to The Grinch franchise, scheduled for a matinee unveiling this afternoon.

The 3D-enhancement of this didactic tale hones in on the classic heroine character (Cindy Lou) painstaking attempts at unmasking a controlling entity in her hometown, nothing new here. Directors Yarrow Cheney and Scott Mosier have chosen Pharrell Williams to narrate the revised tale, in all his boyish charm.

Fletcher Jones, a virtual unknown to hip-hop audiences, goes toe-to-toe with Tyler in the assumed "Cindy Lou" role. To my surprise, Tyler, the Creator doesn't seem half-hearted at all about the role-playing assignment. You might even say he immerses himself in the character like an actor from the Marlon Brando school of method-training.

The Grinch soundtrack also includes a slew of classic numbers including songs by Nat King Cole, The Supremes, and RUN DMC. 

Quotable Lyrics:

I am the Grinch
Cindy Lou who
I live in Who
-Ville who are you?
I got a dog
His name is Max
-
That is a fact.

-Tyler
