Tyler, the Creator fans have been awaiting the rapper’s new documentary on the making of his 2015 album Cherry Bomb since he announced the project in 2016. Although a trailer was released in November of 2016 giving the doc’s release date as January of 2017 (see to the left), Tyler’s media platform Golf Media tweeted a clip from the film that features Kanye West and Lil Wayne as they helped Tyler record “Smuckers.” You can check out the clip below, which was accompanied by one word, “Soon.”
As Pitchfork reported, the first 10 minutes of “Cherry Bomb: The Documentary” were aired at Tyler’s Camp Flog Gnaw Carnival in November. The doc also features A$AP Rocky, Pharrell, Schoolboy Q, the Internet’s Syd, Kali Uchis, and more. It is scheduled for a DVD release sometime in January. In general, Cherry Bomb was both a commercial and a critical success and the film documenting the interesting album should give some insight into the mind of Tyler, the Creator.
