The film followed the Odd Future rapper as he made his 2015 album 'Cherry Bomb'
A new trailer for the forthcoming Tyler, the Creator documentary has been released.
Produced by Illegal Civilisation Cinema, the new film follows the Odd Future founder for a behind-the-scenes look at how he made his fourth studio album, 2015’s ‘Cherry Bomb’.
The trailer sees various shots of Tyler in the studio, at times collaborating with a number of high-profile guests who featured on ‘Cherry Bomb’. The likes of Kanye West (who compares Tyler to director Spike Jonze), Lil Wayne, Pharrell and ScHoolboy Q can all be seen in the trailer, with all of those artists going on to feature on songs from Tyler’s most recent album. Regular touring partner A$AP Rocky is also seen backstage with Tyler at one point prior to a show.

Illegal Civ Cinema made a documentary about the making of Tyler’s latest album, Cherry Bomb. The documentary is 45 minuets long and will be released in January. Featuring Tyler, The Creator, Kanye West, Lil Wayne, A$AP ROCKY, Pharrell, Kali Uchis, Clem of Cherry Glazer, School Boy Q, Syd from the Internet, Austin of Slow Hollows and so many more.
The first ten minutes of the film will be premiered at Tyler’s Camp Flog Gnaw Festival, which takes place in Los Angeles this weekend. A full release of Cherry Bomb: The Documentary will arrive on DVD in January 2017.
Tyler is still barred from the UK after current Prime Minister Theresa May banned him from entering the country for three-to-five years in August 2015, purportedly because of the lyrical content of his 2009 debut ‘Bastard’ and 2011 follow-up ‘Goblin’.
Having made the decision – which Tyler likened to being compared with “a terrorist” – while she was serving as Home Secretary, May became the subject of a song by the 25-year-old back in June. “Tell Theresa May to let me in,” he rapped on ‘My Ego’. “I been going in since 2010 / It gotta be the colour of my skin.”
