Tyler the Creator Releases New Single with An Apology

Tyler the Creator Releases New Single with An Apology

Tyler the Creator’s new song “Sorry Not Sorry” opens with the words ‘Pardon me.’ In this newly released single, this artist taps into his dark, inner self of the past and apologizes for that version of himself. All while at the same time somehow portraying the fact that he doesn’t owe anybody an apology. In this song, there is a juxtaposition between sarcasm and sincerity, which accurately represents his journey as an artist. Musically, this song also harbors styles from both eras since we see his rapping resemble that of his old music in some pieces of the song.

NFL Network Headscratchers: Fire The Talent; Keep the Trivia!

And, as I find myself scratching my head, leaving sad DMs to my favorite departing TV personalities, and wondering if I should also consider a break up with the waning network, I have to wonder exactly what the NFL considered in terms of early ways to stem the bleeding BEFORE these drastic measures? Were they even paying attention to the numbers? Or were their operational efforts similar to that of a rich first-time business owner, who doesn’t feel the pinch of loans, debt collectors, or the cost of everyday operations, so they pay little attention to how rarely they sell 75% of their stock?
