About OKRA

"Okra" (stylized as "OKRA") is a song by American hip hop artist Tyler, the Creator, released as a digital single on March 29, 2018. It was written and produced by Tyler, the Creator. Described by Tyler as a "throwaway song", the single garnered media attention for its abrupt release and a lyrical reference to American actor Timothée Chalamet. "Okra" has been described as a rap song with bass, drums, snare, piano, and strings in its instrumentation, with its production complementing Tyler's vocal performance, which was shifted up one semitone. In the lyrics, Tyler makes references to several pop culture figures in addition to Chalamet, and also alludes to the separation of hip hop collective Odd Future, which Tyler co-founded. The song was praised for Tyler's production, lyricism, and rapping. The song debuted at number 89 on the Billboard Hot 100 with 6.2 million streams, marking Tyler's third appearance on the chart and his second as a solo artist. The song also debuted on the Canadian Hot 100 at number 70. A music video, directed by Tyler under the pseudonym Wolf Haley, was released simultaneously with the single.

Ayo, did this shit in one take

Interior look mango shotgun grape he look like mayo
Golden voice on payroll neck all gold like kayo corp
We aim at dorks get out the way yo
Keep them bucks in banks like yayo
Swampy niggas out the bayou
Pockets flooded yall be dilute watered down
I'm big mac I'm quarter pound you chicken nugget
F*ck it travel bag Balenciaga 30,000 just for luggage
Financial advisor buggin' flower boy is buzzin'
Grammy-nominated tell yo cousin ain't nobody fucking with him

Man, now they go
I cut off some friends, where they go
I stick to the plan that's the goal
F*ck these niggas man that's for sure

Uno the shoe red with the blue look like a flag what the f*ck it do
Golf be the set no more OF like Ron Artest bitch we aim for your neck
Give a f*ck about you or your respect yeah that way
F*ck your accolades but I made the cut like I pack a blade
You could call me brush I've been making waves
Since Ashley Banks' cousin had a fade but that's 92 I'm 91
Watts riot in my blood nigga whats up and that pussy pink like the drink in my cup
Lemonade yeah its minute maid I been getting paid pockets gaining weight
Your bank statements on Mary Kate but that's up to you

Man, now they go
I cut off some friends, where they go
I stick to the plan that's the goal
F*ck these niggas man that's for sure

Tell Tim Chalamet to come get at me
Skin glowing clear of acne diamonds see through so holographic
Red ones look like Aidan Mackey spent dinero like taxi driver
Handmade is that thing with tires but I rode the bike
And vill tail behind me and he got the cannon like he bagged Mariah
Yeah, we straight but if you wrinkle up the situation he will go grab the iron
And he do what I says like Simon no violence and my guy mixed like jambalaya
Man f*ck with the fam we in Japan bitch you're a bum see you dont understand
Yeah, I cut off some friends t where you been? Bitch im in bel air been looking for land
Need a spot in the hills not the beach need a pool
Just to cool it I do need the grass not the sand
Got enough rocks, see check my hand

And it's still wolf gang bitch watch how I bark
Wallace still tripping on shit that I bought
But, I really do not care the cost cause okra

Man, now they go
