Odd Future rapper says he was driving "nicely."
Tyler, the Creator is still defending Justin Bieber's [alleged] reign of terror on the ritzy Southern California neighborhood where the pop star lives.
Witnesses, including NFL retiree Keyshawn Johnson, identified Bieber as the one speeding around the gated community over the Memorial Day weekend holiday. Johnson asserts that the "Beauty and the Beat" crooner was behind the wheel, reaching speeds that could have caused an accident.
Tyler ended up taking the blame, and he's sticking to that story — with a minor change.
TMZ caught the Odd Future rapper leaving the MySpace relaunch party in L.A. Wednesday (Jun. 12), where he let slip that he was driving pretty fast. "I was whippin' that muthaf-----!" Tyler said. "It drives sick!"
Then he got serious. "I was driving nicely," he said. "People are crazy."
Besides Tyler, YMCMB's Lil Twist has borrowed from Bieber's car collection, and stirred up trouble. Twist crashed the singer's $100,000 Fisker Karma in March, and at the top of the year a photog was killed pursuing who he thought was the Biebs, but was actually the Houston rapper.
Also, Twist was recently pulled over by cops for speeding out of Bieber's neighborhood, in his Ferrari.
