Tyler, the Creator Cooks Up Hot ‘Tamale’

Rapper plumbs depths of his vivid imagination for new video

Tyler, the Creator offers yet another visual foray into his very imaginative mind in the new video for song “Tamale.” An orange background focuses attention on three disembodied Tyler heads as the rapper spits out rapid-fire verses before the scene shifts to him riding a cat (as you do), leading a marching band and hanging out with Pharrell.

The frenetic video also highlights one of the rapper’s apparent pet peeves when a seemingly censored image displays this message: “Due to the ‘graphic’ nature of this film I was forced to blur because people aren’t ready to have intelligent conversations before they judge. Welcome to America.”

The next scene shows a tiny Tyler trampolining on a woman’s bikini-clad backside before displaying “But this shit is allowed.” The bizarre video comes off his album Wolf ,which was released in April.
