Tyler, The Creator's album Scum Fuck: Flower Boy is scheduled for July 21st.
But this weekend it suffered an old fashion leak, and Tyler fans have been listening to the project and going over the lyrics.
One bar, in particular, has caught everyone's ear.
“Next line will have ’em like ‘Whoa’ / I been kissing white boys since 2004,” Tyler raps on 'I Ain’t Got Time!'.Now Tyler doesn't always play things straight, so to speak. So it's possible he's just trolling and isn't really coming out on the album.

On another of the album's tracks, 'Garden Shed,' Tyler spits about a forbidden "real love" that he wasn't able to discuss with his friends.
“All my friends was lost / They couldn’t read the signs / I didn’t want to talk / I tell ’em my location and they ain’t want to walk/Truth is, since you kid/I thought it was a phase/Thought it would be like the Frank poof, gone/ But, it’s still going on.”Twitter has been reacting to Tyler's bars.

If it does turn out Tyler is gay or bisexual, it isn't like he hasn't hinted at it before.
