My iPod #145: Tyler, the Creator ft. Hodgy Beats – Burger

Wolf. Gang. Wolf. Gang. Wolf. Gang. Wolf. Gang.

Whilst lying in bed after finishing GCSEs, Tyler, the Creator appeared in an interview on Channel 4. I was left perplexed at how he behaved, it was like watching a six year old in an adult’s body. I’d never heard of him before, but I certainly became eager to hear the music he did.

Mostly everyone knows him for “Yonkers” and its video where he eats a live cockroach and proceeds to hang himself. I won’t talk about that anymore though, you can observe that in your own time. This post is dedicated to “Burger”, ‘a pretty cool track’ according to Tyler himself.

It can be found on the extra disc of the deluxe edition of “Goblin”, and probably for good reason. “Goblin” by itself is a clusterfuck of an album where Tyler raps about relationships, killing people, burning shit and fucking school whilst under the watch of his ‘psychiatrist’ Dr. TC. “Burger” does not fit in the album’s concept whatsoever and would have been out of place if included on the original tracklist.

“Burger” is a song which you can sit, relax, and possibly take an illegal substance to as Tyler, with Hodgy Beats in the chorus rhyme about what they do best….. writing down lyrics on paper and busting them out on the microphone.

Hope you like it.
