In an exclusive interview with SPIN, pop star Bruno Mars responds for the first time ever to the now-famous dis by Tyler, the Creator. Salacious! Not really, as Mars responds in a funny, very self-aware way. In his breakout song "Yonkers," Tyler, the Creator, the madcap 20-year-old leader of Los Angeles rap collective Odd Future, threatens to "stab Bruno Mars in his goddamn esophagus." Yikes. That's vivid and violent.
Mars' brilliant response? "[Tyler] has to wait in line if he wants to stab me. [Tyler's] definitely not the first guy that's said something like that to me and he's not going to be the last.... That's what comin' up is. You pick up some fans and a handful of haters along the way."
Tyler, The Creator's new album Goblin is out today. The full story is here .
