It’s always good to see rappers taking responsibility for their actions. Tyler, The Creator is coming out publicly to say that it was he who illegally sped through a residential neighborhood in California in a Ferrari and not Justin Bieber, as was previously reported.
According to TMZ, the Odd Future frontman admitted it was him and not the teen heartthrob, who broke the speed limit. “That Was Me Behind The Wheel Of Justins Vehicle. Don’t Blame Him. People Are Actually Evil Swearing Up And Down That It Was Who It Wasnt.” Tyler tweeted.
Biebs responded that it was all good and threw in a dig against those who accused him of fathering a child a few years ago. “all good buddy. i deal with this everyday. thanks though. the baby aint mine either,” Bieber shared.
According to TMZ, former NFL player Keyshawn Johnson said that he personally witnessed Justin in the driver’s seat after the luxury vehicle sped through their ritzy hood. The site reports that “at least three other people also saw Justin behind the wheel” and the neighbors are not happy.
Legal issues aside, Tyler has been keeping busy musically this summer. He’s slated to appear on Mac Miller‘s upcoming Watching Movies With the Sound Off on June 18 alongside the likes of Earl Sweatshirt, Jay Electronica and Action Bronson.
