Rapper Tyler, The Creator has lashed out at pop star will.i.am after the Black Eyed Peas frontman offered him some unwanted advice backstage at a recent KANYE WEST show. The Odd Future star met will.i.am at West's Yeezus tour stop in Los Angeles on Saturday (28Oct13) and the Boom Boom Pow hitmaker took it upon himself to impart a few words of wisdom about how to remain relevant in the music industry. However, Tyler, The Creator rebuffed the career advice and has since taken to Twitter.com to blast the 38 year old for selling out and wasting his talents on forgettable chart tracks. In a series of posts online, Tyler writes, "N**ga said 'then you make a decision on what to do to survive' no n**ga thats not how it is for everyone. Im not gonna make music I hate... hes (sic) so talented but hes making butt s**t to make bread, use the creativity for something tight (good) man (sic)." Tyler, The Creator reveals he made it clear to will.i.am that he would never choose money over integrity and even bet him $1 million (£666,670) in a bid to prove him wrong. He adds, "I made a bet with will i am for a million bucks that I will be making money 10 years from now doing what I love and not what makes the most (money)". It is not clear if Tyler, The Creator was serious about his big money bet.
