For those not terribly familiar with Tyler The Creator, the new documentary, Cherry Bomb, should provide some insight into what makes the Odd Future co-founder tick. With a slew notable guest appearances — ScHoolboy Q, Kanye West, Frank Ocean, Vince Staples, Katy Perry, Toro y Moi, A$AP Rocky, Pharrell — it’s blatantly clear the business savvy entrepreneur is living a life many people only dream .
Beginning with Tyler and Pharrell in the studio, the 43-minute short film kicks f with the motley rapper saying, “I’m ’bout to show y’all what really went down when I was recording the album.” Throughout the doc, he delivers on that claim and allows viewers to witness what exactly happened during the process Cherry Bomb‘s creation, including video shoots, wild shows and intimate recording sessions.
Cherry Bomb is narrated by Tyler and directed by Illegal Civilization’s Mikey Alfred, who was able to capture not only Tyler’s hectic life, but also his colorful and debaucherous personality.
Although the mastermind behind Golf Media recently canceled his headlining show at Toronto’s NXNE Festival, his new Viceland television show, Nuts and Bolts, premieres August 3.
