Why is ‘Tyler the Creator’ trending?

The controversial rapper/producer (whose most recent incendiary concert was shut down by Boston police) has a new show on the Cartoon Network.

It’s called “Loiter Squad.”

Odd Future capped off an interesting week of promoting their brand new album with the debut of the anticipated comedy show “Loiter Squad.”

The show premiered last night (March 25) at 11:30 p.m. ET during Cartoon Network’s Adult Swim programming block. The show centers primarily on OF de facto leader Tyler, the Creator, Jasper Dolphin, Taco and Lionel Boyce. Fans can expect to see familiar characters like Thurnis Haley, the golf-loving whack job that Tyler played to promote his 2011 Goblin album.

“Thurnis gonna be on there, he got a couple of skits, but it’s mostly about me, though,” Jasper said jokingly when the crew appeared on “RapFix Live” on Wednesday.”It’s like what I do on my day. I wake up, I take a shower, I eat and then you see them in the background.”

To put the show together, the Wolf Gang hooked up with Dickhouse Productions, the same company responsible for MTV’s hit series “Jackass.”
