Tyler, The Creator Says He Loves Rapping With Lil Wayne
Tyler, The Creator is taking a media victory lap after releasing Cherry Bomb and made his latest stop on Big Boy TV. The 50-minute interview touches on meeting Denzel Washington and Rihanna, hating social media and Cherry Bomb. While discussing the album Tyler was asked about his standout song "Smuckers," that features both Kanye West and Lil Wayne, to which the rapper/producer responded, "They know what era of them I appreciate of them so they brought that on the song that I have with them. It's just crazy to hear me go back and forth with Wayne...That shit is just fuckin' crazy!"
Tyler also spoke on the other collaborations he has on the album, including songs with Charlie Wilson and Pharrell. "When I went in with Charlie Wilson, that was gnarly," said the Odd Future front man. "For him to trust my melodies and my runs and stuff, for him to nail them was crazy...The Pharrell verse that I got, I'm a big fan of his 2006 big chains, Enzo, ignorant Slim Thug teeth. For that song, I told him, 'I need that.' And he gave me an ignorant, off-kilter verse."
Tyler also encourages kids to follow their dreams at all costs and speaks getting fired from Starbucks and quitting his job at FedEx to chase his creative vision. The interview is definitely worth the watch if you have the time.
