Tyler Hits Back At Steve Albini

Refers to Shellac guitarist as 'Steve Albino'

More gossip: after our report on Steve Albini’s vocal disdain for rap crew Odd Future yesterday, the group’s bouncy de facto leader and XL signee Tyler, The Creator has hit back on Twitter, with a characteristically blunt missive.

"Feel Like I Have To Defend Myself. 1 Idk Who The Fuck Steve Albino Is 2. I Dont ‘Nigger Everything Insight’ 3. I Never Say Fuck U To Drivers"

"4. We (odd future) Never Discuss How Much We Are Making A Show In Public, Ever."

"5. Me Nor Anyone i Know In My Age Group Know Who You Are, Old Ass. Surprised You Knew how To Use A Computer. And Whats Good With RAPEMAN?"

Will Albini reply, sparking off further intergenerational/inter-genre net beef? Our money’s on no.+
