Tyler The Creator Says He’ll Be Dead By 40

Tyler The CreatorYoung Odd Future frontman, Tyler The Creator, has rose to fame quickly, but even at just age 20, he says he doesn’t expect to live to an old age.

In fact, Tyler predicts that he will die at the age of 40.

In a recent interview with the U.K.’s Q Magazine, the rapper even said how he’d die, which would be either by murder or a drug overdose.

“I’ll be dead [by the time I’m 40],” said Tyler.”Either an obsessed fan, or a heroin overdose. I’ll probably get into that at 24.”

Tyler is non-apologetic when it comes to expressing himself, especially over Twitter (@f***tyler), even if its with a fan.

Also during the interview, he explained how he got into an argument with a fan over some specific tweets. So, it’s not just Chris Brown who Tyler has got into a Twitter war with in recent months.

“I got into an argument because I said the Columbine [shooters] were probably really cool people,” he said regarding the 1999 school shooting which left 12 students and one teacher dead. “I was just saying they could have been really nice people, probably could have taken them to a game. I wasn’t saying what they did was right.”

Despite his attitude, Tyler’s persona resonates with fans, who showed their support when he dropped his latest album, Goblin, in May. The album debuted at #5 on the Billboard 200 chart, selling nearly 50,000 units in its first week.

  3. Lol he going to get that “nigga wake up call” like Paul mooney says “wake up nigga wake up”.lol. u can’t go around just saying what u want and not get any backlash especially sensitive subjects…he will learn one way or another

  4. he just tweeted that he was lying and they can’t believe the magazine believed him

  5. @facebook-100001415394928:disqus Cory Coleman Now that was fucking FUNNY.I mean it could have been sincere but if not it was the ultimate level.Thanks for the laugh either way

  6. You guys are dumb Tylers smart a true fucking genius he’s just living his life because that’s what it’s for he doesn’t care about the money too he does what he does for the love not fame this fucker could be signed by a major label be rich and all that but he decides not too because when you do what you love nothing else matters…

  7. Hahaha you guys are fucking idiots. Tyler was joking about dying from heroin. Hahahah fucking dumbasses

  8. haha your funny, look here, tyler is way more richer and more famous than you probably ever will.  Hes way too talented too, if his albums dont sell (which they will), then he can make beats, if he cant make beats(which he can do), then he can songwrite. Look dont be a hater, just because he has more top 10 albums than you will never have, dont mean you have to hate and cry about his success

  9. It’s sad that Tyler gets all the hype when the best rapper in the group is Earl and that dude is thousands of miles away not able to get any of the attention he deserves.

  10. IVE KNOWN TYLER ALL HIS LIFE AND HE DIDNT GROW UP MONEY. TOTAL OPPOSITE!!! GET YOUR FACTS TOGETHER.

  11. People think hes stupid… do you notice everytime hes not in the spotlight he does something or says something crazy or weird to get people talking… but since he already has that shock value label on him people dont look at it like that. This is how he stays relavent when hes not putting out a album mixtape or video. Im not mad at it ima Tyler fan too. I just realize thats hes doing this on purpose. Hes smarter than people think. It seems like he had this shit planned since the beggining. And all the people talking bout him and protesting and shit is only gonna get him bigger. and he knows that. Or at least i hope he does.

  12. People get mad when others speak what they’re to afraid to say … Real talk if people would say what was on their mind it would be way worse than the shit tyler jokes about now… and people need to stop being so sensitive
