Tyler the Creator's Explicit Hot 97 Freestyle Stopped The Internet And Funk Flex In Their Tracks

Trolling the homophobes for the win.

Odd Future rap wizard Tyler, the Creator remains a mystery to fans on many matters concerning his personal life. But if there’s anything he’s openly mastered, it’s the art of internet trolling, which he brought to Hot 97 with Funk Flex.

After raising eyebrows from Jaden Smith’s public proclamations about their relationship, Tyler spit one of the most bizarre, neck-jerking freestyles the station has heard yet. Ty went from tying bars about R. Kelly’s current public embattlement to A$AP Rocky’s Swedish detainment and looped it all back around to his personal *ahem* preferences.

“I might fly to Sweden to free him [A$AP Rocky],” Ty spat. “Braid my wig, A$AP tat on my ribs/ Switch with him, then I can f**k all the Sweden men that I wanna/ Actually, I’m gonna, heat it up real quick, motherf**ka, I’m LeBron-a.” The lines were just enough to raise an eyebrow from Flex. But the minute Ty spun his name into the explicit lyricism, jaws dropped and hands rose.

“Listen, Flex, we just met, but I know it don’t seem/ Like R. Kelly wet dreams, I always keep 16s, n**ga…” he said before a pensive pause in the freestyle. “Me and Flex lookin’ in the index for buff neck n**gas just for some hot butt sex.” It was at this point that a shocked Flex questioned, “What made you go with that verse?”

To answer his question, some fans believe Tyler was simply hellbent on trolling Flex for a reaction. But, the other half of the internet believes the lines are just another nuance of an openly queer lifestyle, and they’re not letting up on Flex’s reaction.
