Continuing his path of world domination, Tyler, the Creator has cemented himself as a creative heavyweight for contemporary rap music.
After turning a new leaf for the immaculate ‘Scum F***, Flower Boy’ (2017) and then delivering the conceptual beast that was ‘IGOR’, Tyler, the Creator has given us another brilliant release in the form of an extravagant, globetrotting exploration of elegance in ‘CALL ME IF YOU GET LOST’.
With Westside Gunn being a direct influence, the opulence and bravado on display are unlike anything previously heard from the outspoken maestro. By venturing into this, Tyler has delivered another Grammy-winning epic comprised of expensive tastes and exquisite features courtesy of DJ Drama, Pharell Williams, Lil Wayne and Lil Uzi Vert. There’s the gold-plated opener with writing credits from the legendary Billy Cobham and the bombastic brass lead of ‘Lemonhead’, the bounce of ‘Lumberjack’ and the ballad on ‘Wilshire’.
The tracklist is a broad stroke of genius with all the pre-requisites of a classic record. This unofficial trilogy spanning now five years (all of which are in the Store) marks a creative run of varied and exciting personas and concepts that expand the creative possibilities of rap music. Truly original and equally bold, Tyler, the Creator continues to conquer with another stellar release.
Tyler will be touring Australia later this month, as well as headlining Splendour in the Grass.
