Tyler, The Creator has praised a video mocking his songwriting style. Musician Nat Puff, who records as Left At London, posted the video earlier this week and has gained over six and a half million views.

Tackling Tyler’s early work, Puff – seemingly a fan of the man she is mocking – first lays down a backing track featuring a “shitty piano” and “an out of key synth that is nowhere near the original key of the song”. On top of that come backing vocals made up of a “really pitched-down voice, saying, ‘fuck’, ‘yeah’, ‘shit’, and ‘uh'” and finally lyrics featuring “violence, made up words, hating your father and not being gay”.

“I legit laughed, this [is] lowkey spot on”, Tyler said, reposting the video. Although, he observed, “you forgot the ‘ayo'”, noting another key feature of his vocals.

The new video is building on a theme – Puff previously tackled Tyler’s Odd Future colleague Frank Ocean songwriting’s style.
