Tyler, The Creator has explained why he asks all his friends for dick pics.

The rapper, who opened up about dating men and referenced his sexuality on 2017 album Flower Boy, was profiled in Fantastic Man this week.

The interviewer notes that during their conversation, the musician takes a call from Jaden Smith and also speaks briefly to his friend A$AP Rocky, concluding both chats with the words “Send dick pics.”

Speaking about the his choice of sign-off, Tyler explained: “I always tell people to send dick pics when I hang up, because it’s so awkward. Like, what the f**k did you say?”

The rapper also spoke about his sexuality.

He said: “It’s still such a grey area with people, which is cool with me.

“Even though I’m considered loud and out there, I’m private, which is a weird dichotomy. The juxtaposition of loud and quiet is weird.”

While Tyler alluded to his sexuality on Flower Boy, he had made references to it in the past.

In 2015’s “F**K IT” he rapped: “How can I be homophobic when my boyfriend’s a fag? / And we been hiding in the closet like our passion is fashion / Still trying to come out.”

The rapper also alluded to coming out in the Flower Boy track “Garden Shed,” in which he sang: “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.”

The rapper was recently thrust into the headlines when he faced homophobic slurs from rival Eminem.

Eminem had taken direct aim at his sexuality on track “Fall,” rapping: “Tyler create nothing, I see why you called yourself a faggot, bitch/It’s not just ’cause you like attention.

“It’s ’cause you worship D12’s balls, you’re sac-rilegious/If you’re gonna critique me, you better at least be as good or better.”

Eminem later conceded he went “too far.”

He said: “I was angry when I said the shit about Tyler.

“The word that I called him on that song was one of the things where I felt like, ‘This might be too far.’ Because in my quest to hurt him, I realised that I was hurting a lot of other people by saying it.”
