Just four days after announcing his upcoming fourth studio album Scum F—k Flower Boy, the album has reportedly leaked online and fans are taking notice of a few particular lyrics.
On "I Ain't Got Time," Tyler spits:
"Next line will have 'em like 'Whoa' / I been kissing white boys since 2004."
And on "Garden Shed," he speaks on "hiding," "pretend[ing]," thinking "it was a phase," and even recalls a "Frank's" coming out—who many are assuming is Frank Ocean, a fellow member of Tyler's Odd Future collective.
"Garden shed, garden shed, garden shed, garden shed / For the garden / That is where I was hidin' / That is what love I was in / Ain't no reason to pretend / Garden shed, garden shed, garden shed / Garden shed for the garçons / Them feelings I was guardin' / Heavy on my mind / All my friends lost / They couldn't read the signs / I didn't wanna talk and tell 'em my location / And they ain't wanna walk / Truth is, since a youth kid, thought it was a phase / Thought it'd be like the Frank: poof, gone / But, it's still goin' on."
Fans have also scoured his social media accounts for more information, finding a tweet from 2015 that read; "I TRIED TO COME OUT THE DAMN CLOSET LIKE FOUR DAYS AGO AND NO ONE CARED HAHAHHAHAHA."

Another tweet from 2016 features a drawing of Tyler's in which a rainbow-colored man comes out of a closet asking "Is it safe?"

Another possibly revealing tweet from 2016 comes in response to his friend Kendall Jenner who commented on the tabloid reports that the two were dating. His reply? "NOT POSSIBLE, WE'RE BOTH GAY."
