It might not have gotten unanimous love from the wider world, Tyler, the Creator was a big fan of Childish Gambino's 3.15.20

The left turn from the actor-rapper-writer felt at times like a willful rejection of the things that made "Awaken, My Love!" a hit, with Glover moving away from potential pop stardom following "This Is America" in service of whatever he wanted to do—his M.O. since forever.

Clearly the release resonated with Tyler, as he put the song "24.19" in his list of favorites on Twitter. He also shared his excitement about the track featuring 21 Savage, Ink, and Kadhja Bonet, "12.19," tweeting (and deleting), "shit is SPECIALLLLLL so good."

In another since-deleted tweet, Tyler blamed the lack of fanfare around Glover's latest on the multihyphenate's intentionally vague rollout of the album, saying it hurt the eventual release. "Cause he tried to be all secret and cryptic like a dickfuck and people missed out on some really cool shit, to me at least," Tyler wrote. The quote tweet was in response to a fan saying, "Not enough people appreciate 3.15.20 but that makes it better".

Glover is seemingly more open to talking about the follow-up. Although he said in no uncertain terms that his "last music project was probably my best," he thinks the as-yet unnamed project will be his "biggest by far."
