We are sure that Tyler the Creator has done much more but since this is our first encounter with the artist (bare with us, we are older citizens) we’ll leave it at the list above. The stunning pink poster was the reason we got to know about the artist. Also the fact that we love a blonde bob.

Ode to Billy Joe is a rather sad but beautiful song. It tells the story of what happened after Billy Joe MacAllister jumped off the Tallahatchie Bridge in Chickasaw County, Misisippi.
