Tyler, The Creator and co. egged on fans during an autograph signing for his new album “Goblin,” putting a policeman in the hospital.

OFWGKTA leader Tyler, The Creator almost incited a riot yesterday while signing copies of his sophomore albumGoblin. According to sources, the 20-year-old front man was posted up at the Newbury Comics on Newbury Street, firing up the crowd and forcing local authorities to swarm the scene.

Tyler and Odd Future members incited the fans by hyping them up on top of the establishment’s building. As attendees became “unruly,” Boston Police ended up arresting at least one person and an officer was taken to the hospital and treated for minor injuries. Fans inevitably dispersed and Odd Future continued on to perform at the Paradise Rock Club.

Odd Future has recently had several run-ins with the police. Last month, police in Los Angeles pinched resident crooner Frank Ocean for unknown reasons, while Tyler was detained earlier this week in L.A. for disturbing the peace….. via: STEVEN J. HOROWITZ

Big Boi was previously named spokesperson for Crown Royal Black, and their partnership is reaching new mediums. The OutKast member is set to star in “The Crown Life,” a mini-documentary that follows the Atlanta, Georgia rapper in various aspects of his daily life.

The short film, directed by Hudson Dusters for Greenpoint Pictures, shows Big Boi performing at the 2011 Grammy Awards, recording at his studio Stankonia and hitting up ATL establishments including the supermarket where he jokingly asks a fellow shopper to point out the turkey dogs. The flick, which features appearances from Melanie Fiona and Killer Mike, will debut next week.

“Crown Royal is my drink of choice, and I’m proud to be the first to put my own spin on The Crown Life,” said Big Boi in a statement. “The design of the iconic pouch, the film we’ve created, and the products these incredible designers produced were all inspired by how we like to commemorate life. It’s about celebrating the moments that make up our everyday lives, and doing so respectfully and responsibly.”
