Tyler, The Creator Accuses Former Bandmates Of Selling Old Demos

Tyler, The Creator has taken to Twitter to accuse a couple of former bandmates of selling old demos without approval. As Stereogum reports, Tyler, The Creator took aim at former Odd Future affiliates brandUn DeShay and Tyler Major, accusing the pair of offering up the “personal stolen stuff” on Discord.

“B deshay and tyler major selling old songs of mine is wild ha,” Tyler wrote. “All them discordd kids are sus especially 3D glass pacifist whatever the hell he called, copping stolen shit is like damnnnn u thirsty as hell ok.”

As Tyler continued, he indicated that the material in question is relatively inconsequential, referring to some of the works as “2 minute drafts” that would likely sell for a “few hundred bucks” at most.

“Like bruh that shit is true personal stolen stuff and n****s is like gb gb gb like damn bro you that thirsty for 2 minute drafts / few hundred bucks get it together fellas,” he added. “Subliminal tried to get on a call like no bro, just stop, its not cool dawggy.”

As HipHopDX clarifies, DeShay was a member of Odd Future between 2008 and 2010 and collaborated with Tyler on his 2009 mixtape Bastard, although his vocals were removed from the final product. In 2010, the pair parted ways after a public feud.

Tyler Major is also aligned with the Odd Future inner sanctum, making up half of the duo Nobody Really Knows with Hal Williams, who performed with the group under the name Pyramid Vritra from 2008 until 2015.

This isn’t the first time a member of Odd Future has had their music stolen and put up for sale online. In 2019, Frank Ocean was at the forefront of a similar situation, with a Tumblr hack resulting in an unnamed individual taking to social media to see if fans were “interested in buying unreleased Frank songs”.
