His punchlines are boosted by his icy supply. Consider a lyric just like the opener on “Can’t Even Title Dis”: “Ballin’ just like the NBA, know I’m wit’ the Lakers.” It’s most likely been rapped by most individuals who’ve ever grabbed a mic, however the sliding method Tyler says it makes it sound just like the coldest shit ever. The direct influences that come to thoughts are the coolness sides of South Florida stars Kodak Black and Trapland Pat, a touch of Detroit’s Veeze, in addition to one-time Money Cash star B.G., who was across the identical age Tyler is now when he launched 1996’s Chopper Metropolis. It appears like he’s spent his entire life talking in punchlines, and now there simply occurs to be a beat.
The Florida roots in his music are robust. He describes Tallahassee as a small metropolis, with a tradition largely intertwined with the close by faculties like Florida State and FAMU. Regionally particular references to Seminoles and gold-filled smiles dominate his tracks, and even when he’s not explicitly saying the place he’s from, it’s within the air. His joint monitor with Pompano Seashore’s Loe Shimmy, “A Day within the Noya,” is a have a look at the Sunshine State via their eyes: The tempo is unhurried, the beat is shimmering, the frustrations are shrugged off.
Within the final couple of weeks I’ve performed “Again Flippin” a shit-ton. Its lighthearted one-liners—like when he says he’s ingesting Arizona Iced Tea within the sales space—are paired with a beat that floats just like the morning breeze. The video is the most effective half: simply Tyler doing the stuff some other teenager would most likely do in the event that they immediately turned a sizzling regional rapper. He poses with some stacks of cash, grabs a couple of flicks with a rap hero (Peezy is the selection right here), and does a couple of cannonballs and backflips off a ship. He’s having an excellent time. It makes you lengthy for the times when chilling was your solely accountability.
