Tyler, the Creator has just dropped an intense two-fer of a video that takes ample notes from American history.

Utilizing tracks from Cherry Bomb, the first half is dedicated to "Buffalo," and sees a lynched Tyler (painted all white, no less) break free and walk away from a mob of angry black people -- a provocative image that is eventually replaced by a talk show interlude for "Find Your Wings." Featuring cameos from Syd the Kyd from the Internet and Kali Uchis, the second skit is a pointed play on the clean-cut American Bandstand trope to eschew stereotypes surrounding Tyler's work. Watch the video below, and study up.
