Did Tyler The Creator just come out the closet?

The rapper’s Scum F*ck Flower Boy album leaked over the weekend and included some controversial lyrics, which lead fans to believe that he’s admitting to being gay.

On a song called “I Ain’t Got Time”, Tyler raps that he’s “been kissing white boys since 2004.”

Then later, on “Garden Shed,” he seems to reveal his struggle of coming out. “Them feelings I was guardin’, heavy on my mind / All my friends lost, they couldn’t read the signs / I didn’t wanna talk and tell ’em my location, and they ain’t wanna walk / Truth is, since a youth kid, thought it was a phase, Thought it’d be like the Frank; poof, gone, but, it’s still goin’ on,” Tyler raps.

So far, Tyler has not responded to the speculation behind the lyrics.

Twitter, however, is going off, with some shocked and others saying they’re not surprised at all.
