Tyler, the Creator: I’m So Happy I Didn’t Go To College

Rapper tweets about higher education.

Published June 2, 2015

There’s no misunderstanding Tyler, the Creator’s opinion of higher learning, because he made it crystal clear on Twitter earlier today.

College talk came out of the 24-year-old rapper’s prior tweet about funding “music and arts programs” in L.A. schools, when he gets “stupid rich.”                      


A fan replied to the tweet, “At first you said f**k school. Now you’re trying to fund them. You’ve matured so much man.”

Not so fast, L.A. native may want to fund music programs in schools, but that doesn’t mean he changed his mind about college. “Nah, f***k college,” he wrote back. “So happy I didn’t go.”  

Tyler's blunt viewpoint is understandable, since he's made a good living without a degree. The Odd Future front man is worth $4 million, and has been expandng his entrepreneurial efforts beyond rap

College isn’t for everybody.
