I'm a fucking walking paradox – no, I'm not

from Tyler The Creator – Yonkers Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

Tyler says that he is talking to his alter ego Wolf Haley. Wolf is the one claiming to be a walking paradox, Tyler is resisting.

A paradox is a contradicting but true statement, he claims to be a walking paradox, then he contradicts that statement, because he is not literally a walking paradox.

One of the face-value meanings is referring directly to Tyler’s personality, which is notoriously paradoxical. For example, some aspects of Tyler’s persona as alluded to in his lyrics play to gratuitous black stereotypes while on the other hand, Tyler’s personality radically defies black stereotypes in many ways. For example, Tyler loves bands like Joy Division, Sonic Youth, and other “non-black” music.

Side Note: Since Tyler always wears dockers khaki shorts, this line could also mean pair of docks (like pair of pants/shoes) instead of paradox.
