Waka Flocka Interviews Tyler, The Creator

Posted By on August 3, 2011

     In a new feature for Interview Magazine, Waka Flocka Flame recently interviewed fellow rapper and Odd Future frontman Tyler, The Creator.  First Waka Flocka asked what was “so odd about the future,” to which Tyler responded…

“What’s odd about the future? I think we’re all gonna die pretty soon, and the animals are gonna take over—like ostriches and shit,” he said. “I think they’re gonna take over the world and we’re gonna be their slaves.” In response to another question about the name of his group—in full, Odd Future Wolf Gang Kill Them All—“Well, we were at a skate park on just a regular skate day, and this dragon just came out of nowhere and tried to attack me, so we killed the dragon. That’s how we got the name.”

     Later Waka Flocka asked about the lawn gnomes on stage during Odd Future's performance on Jimmy Fallon (watch it below). Tyler responded by saying…

“Oh, because my album, Goblin, just hit, and in German history, a goblin is the evil cousin of the lawn gnome,” Tyler explained. “So I thought it’d be cool to have lawn gnomes on stage ’cause they look cool but they’re the cousins of goblins and leprechauns and shit like that.”
