Tyler, The Creator: ‘I’ll be dead by the time I’m 40’

Rapper also says Columbine High School Massacre shooters were 'probably cool people'

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.
