The Business and Success of Tyler, The Creator

Tyler-Creator-Hypebeast-Magazine-01Having known Tyler, The Creator pre-Goblin era, ever since we found him yelling at kids on our forum and the comments sections on our music-orientated site HYPETRAK, we’re fortunate to have watched his career blossom from a rapper to a celebrity personality, a fashion designer and brand owner, a director, publisher, media organizer, and an all-around influencer on not just the youth, but his peers and even predecessors; you’ll be hard-pressed to find anyone in the music industry young and old that hasn’t seen or have heard of the renown Tyler, The Creator.
