Cause my mother let me do what I want

from Tyler The Creator – Bastard Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

Tyler’s mother apparently wasn’t too strict, which he thinks fostered his creativity

This line, in combination with the previous one (“I’m so damn rebellious”) is a paradox. How can tyler be rebellious if his mother lets him do what he wants? In other words, how can he break rules if there aren’t any? Tyler is a fucking walking paradox
