Nigga, I'm a bastard

from Tyler The Creator – Jack and the Beanstalk Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

Tyler literally is a bastard.

Bastard’s original, 16th century meaning was “the illegitimate offspring of unmarried parents”. Tyler’s father fucked his mother and then bolted when he found she was pregnant. They were never married.

Hence the title of the album and his consistent proclamations that he is, in fact, a bastard.
