Tyler, The Creator Pays $8,000 In Club Vandalism Case

UPDATE: Tyler, The Creator pays up for destroying sound equipment at a Los Angeles, California club.

Tyler, the Creator was arrested last night in Hollywood, California after destroying sound equipment at the Roxy concert venue.

According to TMZ, the Odd Future ringleader performed at the space earlier in the evening, shouting at the sound engineer at the club. Around 11:30 p.m., he was arrested on suspicion of vandalism and was booked at a nearby station.

Police say that Tyler had “just destroyed an electric soundboard belonging to the venue. […] As [Tyler] was being escorted to a nearby radio car, the crowd exiting the venue became angry and rushed into the street, towards deputies."

Cops shut down Sunset Blvd. for 30 minutes after the crowd gathered and soon dispersed.

 

[December 23]

UPDATE: In connection with his arrest in December 2011, Tyler, The Creator had paid the Roxy $8,000 to cover damages for destroying sound equipment. The Odd Future leader is scheduled to meet a hearing officer for the District Attorney to determine how much he owes for investigation costs.

    Tylers dope. He's just a real dude being himself and expressing whats on his mind through the art of music. You cant knock him for that

    I really wish I could like this dude cuz some of his production is nice as well as his lyrical ability but his content as well as his persona are garbage

  • Debsak

    Well, i'm pretty sure that this started cause da sound engineer didn't do what tyler asked, like, i don't know, turn up the volume of the mic, and such, so after a couple o' tries, he got mad an destroyed the thing, it happens in metal, happens in rap, happens in music, over it, some engineers are assholes

  • Anonymous

    shut the fuck all of you, your soooo annoying. I'm barely a fan of this guy but I think his shit is creative and a new form of Horrorcore. Nobody who makes Horrorcore is serious about it so relax. Nobody bitches about early Eminem horrorcore, or when Big L does it or when Grave Diggaz did it. You call it shock rap, big deal. This is definently good for hip hop, the fact that Just Dont Give a Fuck music is becoming popular again, I'm tired of hearing pussies like Drake and Lil Wayne on the radio and electro rap shit like Flo Rida and Will I Am. You may not like this dude but your just fooling yourself if you think hes bad for hip hop and or hes a bad rapper, you may not like his lane, but hes swaying rap in a good direction along with rappers like J. Cole, Kendrick Lamar and what not. stop being bitches, you may not like his music but stop calling him an attention whore or immature, its just the way he is.

    Don't get me wrong I do not like Tyler or anybody else form OFWGKTA. I do however, like that he doesn't give a shit about anyone else. Too many "rappers" out there getting hurt feelings and shit. Man up all you pussy rappers... Drake in particular. How you gon' make a song crying about your exes and openly expressing your feelings... and then say you gonna fuck up a tattoo artist if you ever see him? Fake ass rappers need to retire.

  • Come on!!

    Tyler is immature obviously in every interview he is acting like a crack addict. His music is ok or slightly less than that but this has nothing to do with race he is just on some drug that distorts the mind.

    I can't believe how ridiculous these comments are. Half of you are saying he's the worst rapper, the other half is saying he's the next 2pac... What the f***, seriously? I like Tyler (even though Earl is far better), he has put out good, originial music, the guy's special. But he certainly is not 2pac (they aint got ONE thing in common). By the way I agree that Tyler acts retarted on this video. He really looks like a kid (which he is after all). Does that make their music less good? hell no. Stop exagerating so much

  • what a dick

    One day people will admit Tyler has no talent. His lyrics aint intelligent, like fans think, but only original because no one has ever been dumb enough to think that openly satanist lyricism is artistic. And quit calling it hip hop, just because it sounds dark doesn't mean anything, it just means they can't classify it as classical cause he's black

  • So Icy Boi!

    lmao @ dis old ass niggas tryin go at me. cuz Tyler raps much betta den Kool G Rap, KRS-1, Chuck D, Black Thought, Notorious BIG.... TUPAC SHAKUR was betta den dem niggas too. swag Tyler da new 2PAC. hes gonna show his lyrical skills on WOLF 2012. swag real hip hop >>>>> old rap

      oh no !! I can't believe you would call someone a J. Cole fan!! it's worse then the faggot... first of all let's examine your comment... complaining about some gay ass mic turning off at the last (!!) song like a spoiled white faggot from sweet 16, then calling everyone hypebeast fags although you yourself are one, then sending us to listen to J.Cole as if he is worse then tyler, plus adding the word pussys as if it is feminine to listen to a black rapper with one eyebrow.

  • So Icy Boi!

    fuck da haters. Tyler raps betta den NaDs, Gay-Z, Feminem, Rakim, KRS, Big Daddy Kane... hes da next RZA, GHOSTFACE or GZA. Tyler is a lyrical monsta. his on of da best rappas alive. hes da reincarnation of TUPAC. swag

      Excuse me as I get my philosiraptor on... How can you shit on Rakim...then compare Tyler to rappers like RZA, GZA and Ghostface......who openly pay homage to Rakim on several Wu songs? Your Argument is invalid, child. do your research first before make a comment, and have a great day.

      Sometimes i think OFWGKTA sends their members on rap websites in the comment sections to get you all riled up with silly shit like this. So Icy Boi can't be serious...because his comment collapses on itself, as he says fuck Eminem who Tyler and even Earl would not attempt a battle with, even in Em's older age. Another point is this person saying that they are the next Wu-Tang even though Wu had about 9 talented members about 7 with classic platinum solo albums to boot, and OF got Earl, Tyler, and maybe Hodgy on a good day, whose albums got decent reviews at best and not a fuckton of sales. So Icy Boi...you humor me. you have a good christmas son.
