The rape rapper who refers to himself as ‘Tyler the Creator’ (Tyler Okonma) has again been booked by the Splendour in the Grass organisation. Why JJJ also chooses to support the rape and horror rap genres has never been answered by the ABC.

Triple J’s brief is to bring new music to young audiences. For reasons best known to themselves they largely ignore the entire world, with the exception of a few postcodes in Los Angeles and London. There are thousands of better rappers in each of those cities, and millions across the planet. These are ignored by the ABC, which prefers a person who built their career on vicious vilification of women and incitement to rape.

Splendour in the Grass has repeatedly invited this individual to perform. The fact that he is a rapper with an obsession with rape is beyond deplorable.

  1. I’m no prude, but JJJ and ABC promotion of songs with lyrics that call women all manner of horrible things is abhorrent.

    Perhaps it’s some sort of odd perspective that such “artistry” is cultural, who knows? Like it’s ok for some particular group to use certain words but not others.
    Degradation of social standards and the undoing of efforts by anti-racism activists is the likely outcome.
