Rappers are known for borrowing each other flows—and the latest example of that may be on Tyler, The Creator’s latest offering “OKRA,” which he dropped on Thursday morning.

With his off-kilter and subdued style, Tyler’s flow on the brief cut is particularly evocative of G.O.O.D. Music’s latest signee, Valee, specifically in the first verse. Even Valee’s manager and Fake Shore Drive founder Andrew Barber seemed to suggest it, tweeting, “Dope to see how influential @valee's flows have become…”

A few minutes after the video dropped, Josh Peas responded to Tyler's tweet: “Now i want to hear a Tyler/Valee collaboration.”

Tyler quote-tweeted the message, writing, “Im saying! im on my rap shit lets run it haha.”

Valee has had an amazing 2018 so far, and linking up with Tyler on a track would be another huge look for the Chicago rapper.
