READ: Thesis Discussing Hip Hop, Skate Culture & Web Culture In Tyler, The Creator’s Music

As someone who wrote a dissertation for my music technology degree, I’m like a moth to flame when it comes to academic papers about music. This one was of particular interest as it relates to the multicultural facets of controversial rapper Tyler, The Creator. The thesis is written by Brazilian producer and musicologist Gustavo Souza Marques and discusses the ways in which Tyler, the Creator “shifts, but also maintains, some frames of gangsta rap discourse in his use of “hip hop mentality, skate culture nihilism and Web 2.0 platforms to promote his art has made him one of the most prominent hip-hop artists from 21st century”.
