Tyler, the Creator Gets His Own Character in 'Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 5'
Published Nov 27, 2015Last year, Tony Hawk told TMZ that Odd Future's Tyler, the Creator was the best skateboarding rapper. Now, Hawk is recognizing Tyler's skill by making him a playable character in the latest update of Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 5.
This PlayStation 4 patch comes with two extra levels and various other updates, and Tyler is one of two new character campaigns (the other is Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles). Twitter user @RadHazzzard [via Pitchfork] posted an image of Tyler in the game, which can be seen above. He's got a GOLF skate deck and is wearing one of his real-life outfits.
Additionally, Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 5 features a soundtrack loaded with music stars like Skrillex, Death from Above 1979, Cold Cave, Cloud Nothings, Ratatat and more.
This isn't Tyler's first brush with the world of video games. Previously, he contributed to the Grand Theft Auto V soundtrack.
