Tyler, The Creator’s Mixed Feelings: Praises Black Eyed Peas, Calls will.i.am a ‘Dipstick’

The Controversial Rapper Acknowledges will.i.am's Musical Influence Despite Past Disputes

Tyler, The Creator, the audacious rapper known for his unfiltered opinions, has publicly acknowledged the influence of the Black Eyed Peas on his music, while simultaneously referring to the group’s frontman, will.i.am, as a ‘dipstick’. This unexpected revelation has sparked a flurry of reactions across social media platforms.

Tyler’s comments came as the Black Eyed Peas celebrated the 25th anniversary of their debut album, ‘Behind the Front’. The rapper credited the album for its influence on his music, but his praise was not without a sting. He referred to will.i.am as a ‘dipstick’, a term that is not exactly a compliment. This remark has its roots in a past dispute between the two artists, dating back to 2013, when will.i.am allegedly ‘prayed for Tyler’s downfall’.

Despite the past animosity, Tyler’s acknowledgment of will.i.am’s musical influence is a testament to his ability to separate personal feelings from professional respect. He specifically praised will.i.am’s knack for choosing samples, a skill that has undoubtedly contributed to the Black Eyed Peas’ enduring success in the music industry.Tyler, The Creator'S Mixed Feelings: Praises Black Eyed Peas, Calls Will.i.am A 'Dipstick', Yours Truly, News, April 13, 2024Tyler, The Creator'S Mixed Feelings: Praises Black Eyed Peas, Calls Will.i.am A 'Dipstick', Yours Truly, News, April 13, 2024
