Tyler, The Creator Turned Down Kanye West Feature for ‘WOLF’
Following the release of Tyler, The Creator's music video for his breakout single "Yonkers," Kanye West praised Tyler dubbing the video as the "music video of the year." In the years since that 2011 release, the two have become close friends.
With both artists releasing albums this year, many assumed a collaboration was finally on the way. Tyler recently explained on Formspring why that collaboration didn't appear on his album WOLF.
Fan: "How come you didn't just throw Ye that 48 beat?"
Tyler: "cause it was mine. he wanted to be on IFHY too! but i was like, nah hahaha. ye is soo awesome, i talk to him almost everyday it seems like. its cool to have someone you can level with about art and everything else."
After a fake track list for Kanye West's forthcoming album 'YEEZUS' leaked online, Tyler addressed rumors that he was featured on that album.
Fan: "so you're for sure on yeezus. what does hyper critical sound like?"
Tyler: "im actually not on it."
