1. Tyler, in a nutshell

Tyler, the Creator, aka Wolf Haley, Ace or Tyler Okonma (his real name) is a 20-year-old L.A. rapper and the leader of Odd Future. The music of both the group and Tyler's solo work has been derided for violent and derogatory lyrics, especially toward women and the LGBT community, while being held up as a game-changer by the likes of Billboard, which put Odd Future on its cover, and Pitchfork, which invited the group to perform at this year's festival.
