Odd Future's Tyler The Creator Signs With XL Recordings

After a bidding war that included Interscope, OFWGKTA's Tyler The Creator signs a one-album deal with XL that allows him to keep his masters.

Rapper/producer Tyler the Creator of Odd Future Wolf Gang Kill Them All has singed a one-album deal with British label XL Recordings. The deal comes after a lengthy bidding war, which included Interscope. Last week, the new partnership spawned the single and video for “Yonkers,” which is currently available on iTunes. The song has amassed over 375,000 views in 72 hours.

Tyler the creator confirmed the deal via his Twitter feed, while also telling fans he has “100% creative control over raps, beats, videos [and] covers.” Jeff Weiss of the Los Angeles Times adds that there is a clause in the deal, which allows Tyler to eventually receive his master recordings back.

The timing of the announcement is likely no coincidence as Odd Future Wolf Gang Kill Them All will appear on “Late Night With Jimmy Fallon” Wednesday, February 16. Tyler is also scheduled to perform at the Coachella Music Festival in April.

    I feel the exact same way! I like it, but I just don't know why?! it's so grimey and the video pulls you in so you have to keep watching it. It's like Gravediggaz with Lil B's ridiculousness. All I know is I'm in support of OFWGKTA.

I stay with grandma she always bitching about her carpet Every time I walk inside the house she always tend to start shit No to drugs I never spark it, I used to be bullied for honour classes By those slow as molasses.. take this shit to school Raquel treat me like my father like a fucking stranger She still don't know I made Sarah to strangle her Not put her in danger and chop her up in the back of a wrangler All because she said no to homecoming, demons running Inside my head telling me evil thoughts I'm the dream catcher but nothing but nightmares I caught.. go to sleep I wear green hats because I'm fortunately lucky Fuck me the monster said, some how the monster's dead Inside of me but the thoughts it tells me are still evil With this state of mind, big moves, max keeble I'm on my grind feeble, my music is evil My fucking samples are too illegal.. play this shit in church I graduated without honors or a fucking father He died.. no bitch don't even fucking bother I wanted a brother my mother I told her But instead I got a sister, just like me with her mister nada So both of our imaginations are creations of the fucking situation That's having out brains racing like dating.. wearing some fucking heelies I know you fucking feel me, I want to fucking kill me But times I'm so serious you think I'm silly I'm doing big style willy couldn't touch 11-7 What's religion nigga? I am legend I roll with skaters and musicians with an intuition I created O.F. cause I feel we're more talented Than 40 year old rappers talking about Gucci When they have kids they haven't seen in years, impressing their peers With the same problem, the only way to solve them Is to go to Father's Day convention with a gold revolver Life's a salad I'mma toss it eat that shit up, Rick Ross it Shit it out, bag it up sell it, I'm so damn rebellious Cause my mother let me do what I want She wasn't careless, protective she was the bear The shit is so bare, my diary isn't hid My father didn't give a fuck so it's something I inherit My mother's all I have so it's never meet the parents When dad left all my line decided to fucking share This confused boy, I wanna hug all ya Soy is not the choice, I'm bad milk.. drink it My wrist is all red from the cutter Dripping cold blood like the winter, the summer Is never that's equivalent to me and Sarah Well that's not her name but I think this shit is clever My niggas wanna know if I'm fucking, if I'm kissing But I'm sitting here downing beers simply just wishing With tear they try to tell me but I never listen Cause I don't give a shit like sitting down pissing Eighteen, still talking to imaginaries Hopefully they see the talent I carry just like Jimmy Losers can never win me, you can never offend me My golden life is a Grammy, hopefully momma will attend the Ceremony with all my homies, I'm suicidal This my Zombie Circus, I hope the majors heard this Fuck a deal, I just want my father's email So I can tell him how much I fucking hate him in detail
