A line off the a newly leaked track from Tyler the Creator off his upcoming album Flower Boy is being seen by some as a coming out declaration. The album was leaked online over the weekend, two weeks before the official release date.
Fans noticed a line in track “I Ain’t Got Time!” where the rapper appears to come out. He raps: “Next line will have them like woah / I been kissing white boys since 2004.”
It’s not the first time Mr Creator has said something like this. (via i-D; photo: Pacific Coast News)

So, maybe he is, I don’t know, but it seems likes he’s pretty cool with whatever he is so, yay for Tyler. More queer representation in hip-hop is a good thing.
