Tyler, the Creator Reviewed the Death Grips’ Debut Album in His New Print Magazine
"I realized that Death Grips was my meth"
Tyler, the Creator, having apparently missed the memo that print is dead, started up a new print magazine, Golf. In the inaugural issue, the rapper included a review of Death Grips’ 2012 debut album, The Money Store, because, sure, why not?
The “review” is really less of a review and more of a stream-of-consciousness liveblog reminiscing of the first time Tyler heard the album. “First 30 seconds, I’m like, ‘OK, f–k, I’m getting bored.’ By 55 seconds, I am fully in,” he wrote. “The skinny black guy on stage with the beard that kind of reminds you of one of those homeless people you see with a Starbucks cup … ended up being the coolest sh-t I’ve ever seen.”
“I realized that Death Grips was my meth,” he continued.
