The cable television network Viceland is expanding its rapper-centric catalog of shows to include a new series starring Tyler, the Creator.

The rapper and social media star will reportedly play the lead in a network version of OFWGKTA's YouTube clip Nuts and Bolts. The clip features a behind-the-scenes look at how the Odd Future frontman created his "Fucking Young" music video. While the Nuts and Bolts clip examines Tyler's headspace at that time, the new show, according to the Wall Street Journal's Lara O'Reilly, will focus on Tyler finding out "how things are made."         

In addition to finding out last month that Tyler was the man behind the theme song for the new Netflix's show featuring Bill Nye 'The Science Guy,' he also dropped some pretty exciting details about the 2017 Camp Flog Gnaw Carnival this October in L.A. While we're still waiting on an official lineup, it's safe to say it'll be a who's who of hip hop based on last year's cast of performers, which included Lil Wayne, Chance the Rapper, ScHoolboy Q, Action Bronson and more.

Nuts and Bolts premieres on Viceland this August.
