To help ease our transition from September to October, 24 year old artistic powerhouse Tyler, The Creator dropped a heavily thought-provoking visual for “BUFFALO”, as well as a 90s themed visual for “FIND YOUR WINGS”, both tracks which can be found on Tyler’s latest album Cherry Bomb.
The 5 and a half minute clip opens with Tyler, fully painted in white with notably ashy lips, is hanging from a sinister looking tree — the type you’d see in a Tim Burton movie — as he is being chased by an African American mob carrying pitchforks, bats, and axes. Makes you think, doesn’t it? As verse 2 of “BUFFALO” comes around, when Tyler is exclaiming how he seems to be the only leader “in the house”, he then paints a black face over his already ashy white face as he speaks in front of a podium to the group that was previously chasing him.
Then, as all Tyler, The Creator music videos go, the video cut to a new visual at around 2 and a half minutes. This would be the visual for “FIND YOUR WINGS”, which paid tribute to all those 70s, 80s, and 90s live music shows. Watch the full video above.
