In a report through dazeddigital, with the rapper's appearance in Central London, though, comes news of a surprise gig this afternoon (May 18).

In a since-deleted Tweet, Tyler, The Creator explained that the decision to cancel the show had in fact been made by the Metropolitan Police, noting that the rambunctious crowd had caused officials to get "nervous".

Unfortunately, 30 minutes after he was due to take the stage, Tyler revealed that "cops canceled it", it being his presentation of IGOR at the Bussey building in Peckham.

After weeks of teasing his fifth studio album with a Twitter countdown and multiple Instagram posts, the 12-track compilation is resonating with fans.

'It's still such a grey area with people, which is cool with me, ' he said, speaking about the response to the lyrics. The juxtaposition of loud and quiet is weird'.
