Tyler, the Creator‘s on a roll, having been sharing outtakes for the better part of the last year from his Flower Boy recording sesh, and sprees that have followed since, left and right, pretty much since his critically acclaimed album dropped. His latest is in coincidence with a month of G.O.O.D Music Fridays, as he’s shared a new version of Kanye West and Kid Cudi‘s recent Kids See Ghost album title track, dubbing the new version “CRUST IN THEIR EYES.”
Tyler took to Twitter to share how the track from his friend and colleague, Ye, came to be before sharing, revealing he made it in just one hour:
ye sent me that beat same night i also think his original verse on it is soooooooo fucking good i love his pocket on it and mighty mos sounds great on it ecstatic is a flawless album
With the same passionate and self-aware MO that listeners have come to associate with the rapper over the last few years, the former Odd Future proponent comes through as characteristically clever and collected on his “CRUST IN THEIR EYES,” remix, doing his peers’ work considerable justice — with less than an hour of his creative attention.
Tyler, The Creator has spent 2018 doing pretty much whatever he wants, from releasing new originals — like “OKRA” and “Rose Tinted Cheeks” and “435” — to remixing tracks like Trouble & Drake’s “Bring It Back.” His latest is more in line with the latter: He’s offered up a freestyle over … More »
Tyler, the Creator is keen on surprises. He’s dropped off a steady stream of one-offs since his deeply personal Flower Boy LP last year, and now, “because why not,” he’s followed a string of tweets with another new one-off track and in-studio video.
ohhh look another thing i had sitting on a hard drive im sharing
“435” samples Saint Etienne’s “4:35 In The Morning” and was recorded while Tyler was on tour in Philadelphia. Albeit brief, clocking in under two minutes, it’s another indication of just how versatile the former Odd Future rapper really is. He’s since claimed that’s it not “an indication of how future things will sound.”
Recently, in a cover story with Complex ahead of his new album, A$AP Rocky claimed that Tyler has already been working on the follow-up to Flower Boy, explaining,“Tyler’s new shit is crazy. I’m not even lying, honestly, sonically he challenged himself in a different way,” he says. “It’s not even like Flower Boy. His next album is a new wave.”
Tyler, The Creator released his messy, personal, very good new album (Scum Fuck) Flower Boy nearly a year ago, and since then, in addition to performing live and supporting Kali Uchis, he’s been dropping off a steady stream of one-offs. So far, we’ve gotten the “4:44”-jacking “Ziploc,” the “throwaway song” “OKRA,” … More »
It’s been three years since the Internet’s last album, Ego Death, and in that interim the band’s various members have done a lot to raise the project’s profile.

Also gracing the bill in 2018 is Bastille, Cold War Kids, Foster The People, and Wolfmother for the rock-minded music seekers. As the music industry’s most rapidly growing genre, rap and hip-hop is also well represented on the bill in Miguel, A$AP Ferg, T Pain, and more.
Tyler, The Creator is clearing out the pipes after last year’s Flower Boy.

Colombian-American singer Kali Uchis has been collaborating with Tyler, The Creator for a long time now. Tyler produced a couple of songs on her debut EP Por Vida back in 2015. Uchis returned the favor by lending her vocals to Tyler’s Cherry Bomb tracks “Yellow” and “Perfect.” Most recently, they worked together on … More »
