TMZ reports that the 20 year-old Odd Future frontman, born Tyler Okonma, was arrested in West Hollywood last night (December 22) after destroying some sound equipment at the Roxy. The OFWGKTA crew was performing at their sold out Christmas show at the venue. But it seems that cops were called at about 11:30pm and Tyler was taken into custody in front of his mother.
The rapper was smacked in the face with a bottle hurled from the crowd during a recent concert in Austin, Texas.

While the pair talked about a number of issues, one that stood out was the subject of happiness and his kids.
Tyler: “Are you, like—this question might catch you off guard, but I ask myself this—like, when you wake up, like, are you happy? Like, are you satisfied how everything turned out?”
Nas: “Dawg, I was naming my album Life Is Good because of how happy I am about how happy things have turned out. Sometimes I may wake up and wish my kids were living with me. That’s the only thing, you know what I mean? Our loved ones that are not around no more, like my mom. That’s the only thing. But other than that, everything is great, even when I’m alone. Even when there’s no one around.”
And the subject of longevity also came up with Tyler mentioning that he is 20-years-old, which is the same age Nas, Jay, and others were when they really burst onto the scene.
Tyler: “You, Em, Jay, Snoop, like, you guys all started when you was exactly my age. The fact that you guys are still here makes me just always think, like, Fuck, could I?”
Nas: “Oh, you definitely can. Someone like you is, you’re interesting, for a lot of reasons. So someone like you, you can’t wait to see what’s next.”
