McLaren is getting the celebrity drill, apparently. Ferrari does it with rather strict rules (think of Deadmau5' Purrari), Rolls-Royce is already identified as a rapper ride, Lamborghini is also part of this club. It’s just the way the cookie crumbles; these days you simply can’t avoid promoting your hundred thousand dollar cars through celebrities, considering they are the first ones to buy them.
To be honest, it’s the first time I hear of Tyler, The Creator. The 24-year-old rapper and record producer from California seems to be an ambitious fellow who is eager to score big and fast. He creates everything from the lyrics of the songs, to all the artwork for the group’s releases and even designs the clothes his friends wear.

It was about four years ago things got somewhat impressive, considering it’s when Tyler signed a joint venture deal for him and his label Odd Future Records, with RED Distribution and Sony Music Entertainment. Today, he already is a five-album artist, with features performances from notable singers such as Kanye West, Lil Wayne and others.

The only thing we managed to find interesting in his Wikipedia resume is the fact that Tyler Gregory Okonma, on his real name, taught himself how to play the piano at age 14. Sure, that is not the actual reason we are talking about the rapper, the fact McLaren Automotive shared a picture of the guy’s visit to their headquarters was.

We can only assume he’s about to buy one of the supercars if he hasn’t already ordered for one. No problem here what so ever we can only hope he hasn’t taught himself how to drive too...
