Tyler the Creator
was arrested Saturday afternoon at an airport in Texas ... after cops say they had a warrant with his name on it -- for starting a riot at the SXSW festival.

Austin PD officials say Tyler was booked this afternoon for inciting a riot at his concert Thursday.

0315-tyler-the-creator-arrested-02Cops released a video of the riot (below) -- and Tyler is clearly telling everyone to break down the barricade to get in.  The scene is pretty scary.

As you may recall, Tyler's concert was cancelled the night before -- after a driver plowed into a crowd of people waiting to get in -- leaving 2 dead and 23 injured.

According to the warrant ... a bartender at the facility told police he tried protecting a woman from getting trampled on ... but a guy punched him in the face for it.

Tyler's still in custody on a $3,500 bond.

This is why I love Tyler!!! This dude does whatever the **** he wants. He made a different sound in rap and doesn't give a **** if people listen or not. He does some stupid **** and doesn't care what people think about it. He really knows how to hype a crowd. Not saying making a crowd violent is cool but it's not entirely his fault it's those retards in the crowd. It's crazy to me that he doesn't do drugs and is that crazy.. Haha

He should be charged with attempted murder and I hope the woman that got punched sues him and the festival's organizers for every penny they have.

Apparently he's never heard about the people that got killed at the Altamont Speedway years ago or the people that were trampled to death during a Guns and Roses show in the late 80's. Since he isn't intelligent enough to comprehend how easily people could've died because of his actions, he shouldn't be allowed to "perform" ever again. This creep HATES the white kids that buy his crappy music, and he thinks he can do anything he wants with no repercussions.

Most of the victims of the previous night are still in hospital with serious injuries and Tyler wants to incite a riot?? Because of this and the drunk driver, I saw a person at SXSW speculating they will start clamping down on hip hop/ rap events. It only takes two guys to give an event a bad rep!
