Tyler Okonma was born and brought up in Los Angeles, California. He got his first taste of distinction when The Los Angeles Times ran a story on the then-16-year-old skateboarding devotee, who was also inspired by music and style. Around this time, Tyler started making music with Odd Future's other main members, and in 2009 released a performance mixtape titled Bastard. Before the finish of the next year, OF's strange and grimy material, typified by Earl Sweatshirt's mixtape Earl, a large portion of which Tyler produced, had earned them a dedicated fan base. It was during that year that a video Tyler directed for the OF track "French" took off, besting a million views by December and attracting regard for a large number of mixtapes that followed.

Career as an American Rapper

Signed as a performance artist to XL Recordings, Tyler made his solo debut with Goblin. Upon its May 2011 release, the collection turned into the primary Odd Future item to be released through the customary music-industry channels and appeared at number five on the Billboard 200. In the meantime, Tyler kept on producing for OF and its members, most eminently on The OF Tape, Vol. 2 and a later 2012 release, Frank Ocean's Channel Orange, which won a Grammy for Best Urban Contemporary Album. Tyler's second LP, Wolf, was released on the Odd Future label in April 2013. It entered the Billboard 200 at number three with a wide range of guest spots including Erykah Badu, Pharrell, Stereolab's Laetitia Sadier, and Quadron's Coco O.

Relationships & Personal Life

In the Autumn/Winter 2018 issue of Fantastic Man, the eccentric artist released some information about his choice to address his sexuality years after his career had propelled. He was explicitly asked about his "I Ain't Got Time" verses where he rapped that he had been kissing young white men since 2004. It was a line Tyler knew would bring up significantly more issues about his sexuality. It was a hazy area with people but it was alright with him. Despite the fact that he is viewed as boisterous and out there, he is actually private, which is an odd polarity.

He wouldn't confirm that he was bisexual or homosexual but he promised fans that they would get their answer on his next album.
