Tyler, The Creator Slams Aussie Visa Laws In New Song ‘Fuck It’

It’s been two months since Tyler, The Creator‘s tour was cancelled after a petition for his Australian visa to be denied over homophobic and misogynistic lyrics gathered close to 2000 names, but it seems he’s still not done speaking on the issue.

In new song Fuck It, he’s explicitly made reference to Australian visa and quarantine laws rapping, “Tell Australia I’m sneaking in with a mic in my damn hand/Instead of the vegetables that I packed in my backpack.”

Tyler then questions how Eminem has been granted entry in the past given that he’s also got a history of violent and homophobic lyrics.

“When Marshall had this problem what the fuck was they telling him? Is it cause of status or his melanin lacks black,” he raps, questioning whether it’s a matter of race. “I think people love to be mad.”

The racial element of Australian visa controversies came into question last month when the government indicated it would deny Chris Brown entry to the country. GetUp!, the activist group that pushed for his ban, retracted their petition because of its “racist aspects.”

“We have a migration system that unfairly targets people of colour and this is a system that we inadvertently fed into,” they wrote.

In Tyler’s Fuck It he also denies claims of being homophobic and a misogynist in a rather bizarre way. “How can I be misogynistic love titties and ass,” he asks, as if that means immediate respect for women, further questioning, “How can I be homophobic when my boyfriend’s a fag?”

Tyler has also been banned from the UK for 3-5 years because of lyrics he wrote in 2009, according to his tweet at the time. He also makes reference to that saying, “Freedom of speech? my freedom was breached…for shit i said when i was a virgin.”

It’s a wordy track and Tyler has published all the lyrics on YouTube, which you can read below.

UPDATE 13/10/15: Collective Shout, the group behind the campaign to ban Tyler, The Creator from touring Australia, has accused of having “a tantrum to music” on Fuck It.

Fuck It Lyrics via YouTube

i seen alot of niggas

so when them niggas start talking reckless i get offended

i get it, they try to keep a image

but look a little closer at the picture and you’ll that theyre chameleons

how you doin

you in the muthafucking building?

nigga im an architect,

got another crane and i dont know if ima park it yet

you aint even start one yet, fuck off my property

tell australia im sneaking in with a mic in my damn hand

instead of the vegetables that i packed in my backpack

when marshall had this problem what the fuck was they telling him?

is it cause of status or his melanin lacks black

i think people love to be mad

how can i be misogenist love titties and ass

how can i be homophobic when my boyfriends a fag

and we been hiding in the closet like our passion is fashion

still tryna come out

couldnt deal with niggas who decide to take the fun out

prolly cause i like to in places where the suns out

so comparing niggas lights is a muthafucking bum out

thought u niggas nudist, but yall clothes

i was bout to tee off and put put till the end

now its anti golf boys cause i dont fuck my friends

worse thing they gave me was an opportunity and a pen

freedom of speech? my freedom was breached

border patrol put me on streets immediately

for shit i said when i was a virgin, repeatedly

posting on hypebeast cause nobody would listen me

my child is product of me, very honest

left of center, very different, they didnt want us

they didnt get us, didnt fit enough for their standards

diverse and loud, so they ignore us

you put your life in a child that everybody hates

now everybody hates papa despite that papas great

but thats your favorite child boy thats your favorite one

kids? nope, im talking bout that cherry bomb

i dont think they hear it

i was fearing deteriorating

almost ate my spirit

til the children cheered along

watching them sing the songs

eyeballs inspired

from pilot to 2seater

i couldnt steer them wrong

thats why i copped the mclaren, i couldnt stop at the bimmer

“tyler loosing himself that nigga turned to a diva

nigga preaching and smiling, nigga wilden and breathing

tryna inspire all the little niggas thatwanna be him

but fuck that! we want:

cats cats daddy problems kickflip fuck fuck, cupcakes buttrape

golf wang, daddy problems fag fag dad dad bike lake everything that i hate ,plus being sad”

yall can cry about your years top rap new albums

golf did a quarter million in about two hours

money money aint the motive, but it is up for discussion

niggas frontin niggas wish that they could fuck with my production

saying you the plug, get yo chords up

i was writing string sections on my tour bus

they adore me, my little birds

be free flap your wings i encourage it

i wish i had fucking xanex problem so yall talk about how i deep i am

man child in the flesh bitch im peter pan

you captain teir hook muthafuckas wont ever be the man

i got a muthafucking vision i dont need your plans

so shut your muthafucking mouth when i be speaking man

T the only sober nigga that be tweeking fam
