Tyler, The Creator says he’s “bored” of rapping and wants to sing instead.
The rapper expressed his thoughts on Larry King Now, the veteran US broadcaster’s online interview show. Tyler also said he’d like to move into film, expressing a desire to be compared to noted directors Wes Anderson and Quentin Tarantino – watch a preview clip below.
Speaking about his future, Tyler said: “I hate rapping. It puts you in this box. … I’m talented enough to do other things. I don’t know, I’m pretty bored with it. It’s not interesting. In the future, I want to do films. I want people to mention my name next to Wes Anderson or Quentin Tarantino. I don’t want my name to be mentioned next to other rappers at all.”
Earlier this year, Tyler The Creator arrested at South By Southwest in Austin, Texas, for allegedly inciting a riot.

He was arrested and charged with a Class A misdemeanor with bail set at $25,000 (£15,000).
