Odd Future’s Tyler, the Creator has taken direct aim at Black Eyed Peas’ frontman Will.i.am today (October 29) by going on a full-fledged rant against him over Twitter.
Giving followers the ALL-CAP everything treatment, Tyler went off on Will for allegedly questioning his future.
“I MADE A BET WITH WILL I AM FOR A MILLION BUCKS THAT I WILL BE MAKING MONEY 10 YEARS FROM NOW DOING WHAT I LOVE AND NOT WHAT MAKES THE MOST,” Tyler tweeted October 29.
“N*GGA SAID “THEN YOU MAKE A DECISION ON WHAT TO DO TO SURVIVE” NO N*GGA THATS NOT HOW IT IS FOR EVERYONE. IM NOT GONNA MAKE MUSIC I HATE”
“HES SO TALENTED BUT HES MAKING BUTT SH*T TO MAKE BREAD, USE THE CREATIVITY FOR SOMETHING TIGHT MAN.” (Tyler, the Creator’s Twitter)
The Odd Future head also referenced the legal battle Will is engaged in with close pal Pharrell Williams.
“I SHOULD HAVE BROUGHT UP THE FACT HE TRIED TO SUE PHARRELL ON SOME F*CK A** SH*T BUT I WAS SO MAD HE INDIRECTLY SAID I WAS GONNA ‘SELL OUT'”
“TRUTHFULLY 89% OF FAMOUS PEOPLE ACTUALLY F*CKIGN SUCK AND DRESS LIKE IDIOTS OH MAN YOU SHOULD SEE THE BACKSTAGES MAN ITS CRAZY”
“IN 10 YEARS HE’LL BE 50 AND ILL BE 32 MAKING MOVIES ( not even in them) WATCH. WOLF HALEY DIRECTOR SECTION WILL BE POPPIN SUCK MY WHOLE SH*T”
“I CANT BELIEVE THIS N*GGA WAS PLOTTING ON MY F*CKING DOWNFALL CAUSE HE MAKES SH*T HE HATES AND DOESNT LIKE HIMSELF. WILL I AM IS A MARK”
“THIS N*GGA REALLY WALKED UP TO ME TELLING ME ABOUT MYSELF 10 YEARS FROM NOW N*GGA F*CK YOU NOW IMA GO OUT OF MY WAY TO PROVE YOU WRONG”
“IMA STAY POSITIVE AND FOCUSED LIKE I HAVE BEEN SO I CAN CONTINUE TO HAVE A TENNIS COURT IN MY BACKYARD EAT A D*CK”
“IRONY IS THAT BEHIND THE FRONT, THE FIRST BLACK EYED PEAS ALBUM, WAS THE FIRST RAP ALBUM I EVER LIKED WHEN I WAS 7. GREAT BEATS HAHA”
“IM EXCITED I GET TO THROW MY SECOND CARNIVAL, WILL I AM IS NOT INVITED AT ALL. http://campfloggnaw.com” (Tyler, the Creator’s Twitter)
To make matters worse, Will is currently engaged in a nasty legal case against Pharrell.
The gloves are off in Pharrell WIlliams’ trademark war with Will.i.am — Pharrell now says Will.i.am is DREAMING if he thinks he’s up to the “Get Lucky” singer’s level … because he’s not even close. As we reported, Will.i.am filed a lawsuit against Pharrell over the trademark “I Am” … after Pharrell attempted to stake his claim on a YouTube channel called “I Am Other.” In his docs, Will.i.am suggested users might get confused over the “I Am” name because he and Pharrell have both “achieved great distinction” in the hip hop world, each releasing mega hits … and working with the industry’s top professionals.

Coincidentally, G.O.O.D Music’s Kanye West recently boasted about how much he respects Tyler.
“Artist. Innovator. A good mentor. He helped me out with some of the [Yeezus] merch. So talented, he understands things. Went to film school, I email him, like, ‘Could you teach me how to make videos?’ Did you see his amazing Mountain Dew commercial before it was banned? It’s the best thing in the last year. You know what should be banned? Stuff that’s whack, not stuff that’s controversial. The world is controversial, classist, racist — so what. You guys are selling soda, be glad someone that creative took a moment to help you do what you do.”
