Odd Future leader Tyler, The Creator claims he will be dead before he reaches his 40th birthday.

The 20-year-old rapper believes that things will go downhill when he passes his 24th birthday.

"I'll be dead [by the time I'm 40]," he told Q. "Either an obssessed fan or a heroin overdose. I'll probably get into that at 24."

Tyler also revealed that he recently got into a row on Twitter over the Columbine High School Massacre.

"I got into an argument because I said the Columbine [shooters] were probably really cool people," he explained. "I was just saying they could have been really nice people, probably could have taken them to a game. I wasn't saying what they did was right."

A teacher and 12 students were killed in the 1999 tragedy after two senior students Eric Harris and Dylan Klebold went on a shooting spree.

Odd Future are set to perform at this year's T In The Park and Reading And Leeds Festivals.
