Last night, Tyler, the Creator dropped his newest album IGOR. Ahead of its arrival, Tyler teased an arsenal of new visuals, and just now, he’s shared the first in its entirety. The “EARFQUAKE” video stars Tracee Ellis Ross as a smoke-averse talk show host who has brought Tyler on her program as a musical guest. What begins as a flashy performance eventually goes up in flames — only to be extinguished by Tyler, as a firefighter.
Is it a coincidence that the fire starts immediately after Playboi Carti’s verse on the track kicks in? Absolutely not. Sadly, Carti doesn’t appear in the video himself, so we’ll have to take a raincheck on seeing him rock a bowlcut a la Tracee and Tyler. Check out the “EARFQUAKE” video above.
