In case you missed it, Tyler, the Creator has dropped some new new for us all, after hinting about *something* via Twitter the other day. The music video for ‘Buffalo’ is expectedly confronting, as the song was already a comment on some of his past obstacles, and the treatment was probably motivated by a lot of his more recent controversies. White face, lynching, angry mobs – this one will surely have some people squirming in their seats.
It’s not entirely dramatic though. The vid switches tempo half-way, and takes us back to goofball Tyler, with an old-school variety show-style performance of ‘Find Your Wings’, featuring Syd Bennett, Kali Uchis, and Roy Ayers. According to Twitter, his idol/mentor/bro Pharrell Williams is a definite fan of the video, so there’s also that. Check it out for yourself above.
