Complex says: The first three months of 2011 were marked by everyone who ever read Pitchfork co-signing Odd Future as the next big thing. But it was a real shocker when Kanye—arguably hip-hop’s most meticulous rapper ever—co-signed Tyler, The Creator’s “Yonkers” video and called it the video of the year. Tyler responded by saying that even though he’s “a big Kanye West Fan” he also feels like Kanye is his only competition, citing their shared talents in being able to compose music, rap, and direct videos.
