Tyler, the Creator – Lumberjack
I could write a thesis regarding Tyler, the Creator on various subjects.


Tyler, the Creator’s Call Me If You Get Lost rocked Schottenstein Center Sunday Night 2-27-2022 with enthusiastic audience.


Which subject should I discuss.


-Racial Individuality.
-Hip Hop’s evolution.
-Biblioteque Sapiosexual Allures.
-Music Marketing.
-Would’ve Big L lived if he would’ve Fresh Princed and started skateboarding.
-Should the Schottenstein Center start vegan food truck to justify having Vegan Food for sale during events.




First things first.


This was my first show since quarantine. 


I breezed Schottenstein Center at 1pm. There was a line.


I went home because Schottenstien Center website said the first act wasn’t performing until 730 pm. 


I was imagining teenagers having parents drop them off earlier.

Rationale was: 


Kids haven’t attended very many shows. 
Fans didn’t want to miss anything.
 Why wouldn’t you make a day of it?


Schottenstien Center Shows are probably really big events in someone’s year.


Someone works all year, attends class and yr favorite artist is rocking Columbus.


Or in similar to where I was coming from….


Tyler’s show was the first show where someone could rap, and make songs corresponding with
The fact our country was finally recovering from a COVID. 


I want to have fun.


While walking past a group of people waiting for a show to start 6 hours from now could ruin a critic’s snark…
 A critic could act as a consumer reporter if an artist didn’t respect their fans’ experiences.


Between COVID, and other turmoils…you just want everyone who like their favorite groups to have fun for once.
 It would be extremely difficult to clown anything which would make someone smile.


I went home. I took a nap. 

I woke up. I grabbed the number 1. 
1 stop…I was at Schottenstien Center after passing the Jack Nicholas Museum sign.


I walked into Schottenstein Center excited to watch a concert for the first time since George Floyd, Covid, and the Capital Riots.


It was fitting Tyler, the Creator was my first after covid concert.


The first time I heard of Tyler, the Creator was from a tremendous word of mouth generated about a rap group who was involved with L.A.’s DIY Smell scene which was known for Best Coast, Sic Alps and Wavves while Adult Swim’s affiliations were getting some Wu-tang energy.


The last time I heard of Tyler, the Creator and Smell. I was looking at Tyler’s website where he was selling French Waltz which was a new cologne.


I start every new year looking for Wu Wear. 


French Waltz appears boutique should you want to buy me a Christmas present.


In the music new year, it was French Waltz’s creator, Tyler.




Somewhere in between:


I found out Tyler, the Creator lived in Sac-town, California while gestating. 
Watched Jimmy Fallon with that Native Tongues Band + the dude who crooned on the Blakroc song Vista.
Watched Odd Future at the Newport.
Grammy’s and number 1 albums.
Tyler, the Creator was spotted with Franz Lyons of Turnstile.
Recently wondered if it was appropriate to feel really pleased Tyler, the Creator won a BET Image award.
Reading Charles Baudelaire.




I didn’t write a blog regarding Tyler’s recent BET oratory.


While listening Tyler, The Creator’s newest album, Sir Baudelaire had me reading French writer Charles Baudelaire.


Please name the last time rap music made you find a writer?


Near the beginning of Tyler, the Creator’s Schottenstein Show Sunday night Tyler yelled, “Y’all ready” and a Prince Paul/RZA influenced beat played.


Schottenstein’s crowd erupted as Tyler rapped about rocking venues like Schottenstein Center.


Watching Schottenstein Center responding with a lyricist, who was rapping really proficiently with an annunciation, rhyme patterns, raw lyrics, and an understanding of delivery was a moment of: All is functional as I have ever understood Hip Hop.


PRZM meets Clipse.


Tyler had entered the stage in a Rolls Royce which lifted to reveal the rapper looking like Slick Rick meets Dynasty Era- Roc A Fella.
