Is Tyler The Creator's Most Shocking Act Being Normal

    Tyler the Creator's recent music video release for the track "Perfect" showcases one of the first instances in which Tyler utilized his baritone to broaden his horizons and not be known solely for his rapping. To Larry King, he even stated that he hates rapping, generally in the way it confines him from using his abilities as a creative musician.

    While his style of rapping, full of ridiculous beats and strange mental imagery in addition to the often hallucinatory music videos he produces, has clearly distinguished him from typical hip hop acts and garnered a cult following, "Perfect" is a borderline Motown style track.

    While many of Tyler the Creator's tracks in the past have generally been well-received for their loud, exciting, and often inflammatory nature, the most shocking part of the production of "Perfect" was how mellowed-out, relaxed, and very calmed-down experience.

    While he may have strayed from his usual brand of jarring and emotionally violent storytelling, as a producer the instrumental aspects of his works have remained pretty out there, combining some very vintage styles of guitar with spacey synths in a way that not many musicians have explored. While "Perfect" lacks the shock value typical of Odd Future, it certainly isn't bland or redundant.

    Though he's strayed from his typical and widely well-received music video style, the way he's changed can lead to some pretty interesting explorations both musically and visually. One is definitely left to wonder what Tyler had to smear on his shirtless torso to get so many butterflies to cling to him throughout the filming.
