Riding around town in Seattle
With the same shotgun that Kurt used to click-clack, boom-pow

from Tyler The Creator (Ft. Domo Genesis) – Sam (Is Dead) Lyrics on Rap Genius


Tyler carries the same aversion for superstardom that Kurt Cobain did, and that was part of the reason Kurt took his life. The same shotgun=the same feelings about fame. And Kurt Cobain was from Seattle, and shot himself there with a shotgun.

Like Cobain, Tyler is ambivalent about his mainstream success but ultimately embraces it.
