Goblin, Tyler, the Creator

The out-of-the-blue breakthrough of Odd Future and its Svengali, MC-producer Tyler the Creator—highlighted by his unexpected Best New Artist win at the VMAs—was one of the biggest music stories of 2011. Tyler's Goblin, with his twisted, confessional subject matter, one-of-a-kind sub-baritone delivery and Neptunes-on-meth production, backed up the hype and showed potential for a whole lot more. We can't wait to hear what's next.
