Tyler, The Creator has spoken out after he was involved in a car accident in Los Angeles.
According to the Los Angeles Police Department, the rapper crashed his Tesla Model X into a parked car in the early hours of this morning (October 25). The collision caused the parked vehicle to be pushed approximately 50 feet from where the impact happened.
The LAPD and Los Angeles Fire Department responded to a call around 12:30am. They confirmed the rapper was not injured and no one was present in the parked car at the time of the crash.
Tyler has now commented on the incident, sharing an explanation on his Twitter page. “my big doopy ass usually go to sleep 10:30 (I wake up at 7 er morn) and guess who wanted to finish music super late and dosed off for a few seconds while driving home, I’m a dumb ass bitch but lil mama don’t have a scratch I’m lucky,” he wrote on a selfie.
“I calmly jumped out the back and called the people. thanks elon for the excessive airbags u a qt. good day sir.” He also shared a photo of a bike wheel, suggesting he will be using that method of transportation for the time being.
Yesterday (October 24), Tyler shared his version of the theme from The Grinch. ‘You’re A Mean One, Mr Grinch’ is one of two tracks the star has contributed to the soundtrack of the remake.
He has also penned an original track called ‘I Am The Grinch’ to appear in the Christmas movie, which is due for release on November 9. Pharrell will narrate the film, while Benedict Cumberbatch, Kenan Thomspon, and Angela Lansbury will also be involved.
The former Odd Future member released his latest album ‘Flower Boy‘ in 2017. In a four-star review, NME said: “There remains a sense that he could go even further in refining his wild invention, but he’s on an upward trajectory, getting ever closer to fully realising his potential.”
Earlier this month, Tyler shared instrumental versions of ‘Flower Boy”s predecessor, ‘Cherry Bomb’. The tracks were uploaded to Spotify after several of them appeared on YouTube under different aliases.
