Released April 1, 2013. Two years after Goblin, the Odd Future ringleader returns with his third studio album heavy on gorgeous instrumentals and a lyrical focus that takes aim at the band’s critics and the trappings of fame. While this album was released last chronologically, there are strong hints that the story laid out in the record takes place before the events in Bastard and Goblin. See this article by Ryan Bassil for the full story.
With Wolf, Tyler, the Creator displays a radical growth as a producer, composer and arranger, even if, as a rapper, he’s still up to some of the same antics. Still, the album contains a few of the best songs he’s ever written. 48 is a wonder, Answer and Lone delve into deeply personal matters with poise, and Rusty is one of the most arresting lyrical performances on the record if you can see past the self-serving chest-beating

While his sophomore album ‘Wolf’ is still ‘rough around the edges,’ Tyler, the Creator packages the album more responsibly than ‘Goblin. Underground artist Tyler, The Creator may be the most controversial rapper of recent times. HE has never shied away controversy, essentially flipping the bird to critics of his brash approach. He’s infamous for his use of homosexual slurs, adoration of the word fuck, and sexualized rhymes. Wolf is true to the rapper’s script, with the first lyric being fuck. That said, as overt as Wolf is, Tyler, the Creator packages it more responsibly here

Tyler, The Creator has come a long way from his days on Tumblr. The foul-mouthed Odd Future leader has become the poster child for teenage angst and rebellion. But it’s not just the antics. Tyler digs a little deeper though this time around, working through insecurities about fame, relationships with women and a fatherless childhood. He’s very much still working through these things, (hurling around F-bombs of the three letter four-letter variety) but he does show growth in his lyricism with a much stronger sense of self. Throughout, Tyler walks the line between someone who’s maturing and a provocateur still going for cheap gasps.
