At his latest show, Tyler, The Creator reveals that he put a clause in his will prohibiting posthumous album releases after his death.

Tyler, The Creator revealed during his show at LA’s El Rey Theatre on Wednesday night that he has a clause in his will prohibiting the release of any unheard music after his death.

The intimate concert featured the first performance of his latest project, The Estate Sale. Among the memorable moments was a run-through of an unreleased song called “Penny,” which Tyler revealed was the first track he recorded for Call Me If You Get Lost. The song is a freestyle over Rich Boy’s “Throw Some D’s.”

“Some of these are so good I can’t just let ’em sit on my hard drive,” Tyler told the crowd just before launching into the song. “Because I have in my will that if I die, they can’t put no fucking post(humous) album out. That’s f*cking gross, (to get) like some random feature on it, some n*gga I didn’t f*ck with.”

“See, I f*ck with Elon Musk, but that Tesla tried to kill me,” Tyler, The Creator rapped, then ran the song back before interjecting, “True story. I don’t lie. I almost died in that accident.”

The rapper has said he wasn’t injured in the crash early in the morning on October 25, 2018, in LA. Tyler’s white Tesla Model X reportedly collided with a parked car, which moved the parked vehicle about 50 feet from the point of impact.

“My big doopy ass usually go to sleep 10:30 (I wake up at 7 er morn), and guess who wanted to finish music super late and dozed off for a few seconds while driving home,” he wrote of the incident on Twitter. “I’m a dumb ass bitch, but lil mama don’t have a scratch; I’m lucky.”

During his El Rey Theatre concert, Tyler, The Creator also introduced Vince Staples as a surprise guest to perform their collaboration “Stuntman” from The Estate Sale for the first time.
