This past weekend, Tyler, the Creator headlined at this year’s edition of the popular, genre-spanning festival Afropunk. In support of his performance, Tyler connected with the festival crew for a new interview. Sitting down with one of Afropunk’s personalities, Tyler opened up about “the fall of America,” his negative reputation in the mainstream scene, changing his Twitter handle, and more. You can check out the full exchange below. Recently, Tyler penned a poem for his friend and collaborator Frank Ocean’s new magazine.
