D12 rapper Bizarre has released a diss of Tyler the Creator, who appeared to come out earlier this week in a leaked track.

His track ‘I Aint Got Time!’ was leaked over the weekend along with other tracks from the album ‘Flower Boy’.

It was leaked two weeks before it is set to be officially released.

In the leaked track, he says: “Next line will have them like woah / I been kissing white boys since 2004.”

This was not the first time Tyler has mentioned same-sex attraction, and back in 2015 tweeted: “I TRIED TO COME OUT THE DAMN CLOSET LIKE FOUR DAYS AGO AND NO ONE CARED HAHAHHAHAHA”.

Now Bizarre has released a diss of the rapper, despite the reaction to his perceived coming out being mainly positive.

In it, Bizarre raps on ‘Dear Tyler’ that the rapper and bisexual singer Frank Ocean can “share a “bottle of lotion” and make “a love potion.”

The beef apparently stems from a tweet in 2014 when Tyler said he thought the album ShadyXV was “ass”.

But many have questioned why it has taken three years for him to come back at Tyler, and why it was necessary to use homophobic language.

Frank Ocean, who previously came out as bisexual, has often spoken about his relationships with men.

It is set to be released on 21 July and the rapper is still yet to comment on the lyric.

Tyler in 2015 claimed that he was denied entry to the UK because of his homophobic lyrics.

The rapper – whose real name is Tyler Okonma, was denied entry to the UK despite having a tour planned.

A controversial figure, he was branded “violently anti-gay”. by media charity GLAAD in 2011, for using slurs such as “faggot” in lyrics, as well as references to rape and domestic violence.
