Best Stage Banter (Pt. 2): Tyler, the Creator
Here's a small selection from Tyler's set: "I didn't even know this festival existed until last month when I found out I had to come here to play it. I don't really like festivals because people aren't always there to see me but you all seem like nice people. I'm Tyler. I think I have less than an hour to yell onstage. It smells like dookie so bad." Situated close to the porta-potties on the breeziest day of the weekend, the rapper-producer wasn't lying. Later, before launching into brutal breakup song "IFHY," Tyler, announced, "We're gonna get really depressed and sad real quick so everyone pace yourselves," and Earl had some choice words for someone in the crowd with his mounted Go-Pro camera: "Are you Gandalf? Did you smoke crack?" But there was love for some other festival ephemera, with Tyler freaking out over a Dora the Explorer balloon. C.L.
