It sails into the American charts at number one...

Could this be the moment Tyler, The Creator comes of age?

Long relishing his position as rap's enfant terrible, Tyler's notoriety has sadly often over-shadowed his intense creativity.

New album 'IGOR' might just be the moment he is fully embraced, however.

Landing on the Billboard charts at number one in its first week of release, he's chalked up a whole slew of achievements.

Tyler is now the first solo rapper in history to have a No. 1 album he produced and arranged by himself, with no co-production or co-producer credits at all.

In the past, 69 rappers have claimed No. 1 on the Billboard 200 - no one has ever done this before.

So, congrats!
