Tyler, the Creator Tries to Rap Dr. Seuss in a Cat in the Hat Costume

Two of the hottest rap artists of the moment, Tyler, the Creator and Theodor Seuss Geisel, have new projects out. Tyler's is Cherry Bomb, his third studio album, released in April; Geisel's, under his emcee name, Dr. Seuss—no relation to Dre—is What Pet Should I Get?, a children's book published from a lost manuscript penned in the late 1950s or early '60s.

So the Odd Future dude hit Jimmy Kimmel Live! to throw on a Cat in the Hat suit and rhyme the new Seuss. It didn't go super well, at least till the final attempt (at 2:30 in the video above).

Below, you've also got Tyler doing some of his own cuts, all from Cherry Bomb. The title track creates a deadly moshpit; the Kanye West/Lil Wayne collaboration "Smuckers" sounds silky as hell; "Pilot" shows Tyler at his energetic, fine-tuned finest.
