Tyler, The Creator is clearly a massive Pharrell fan. At this year's "Camp Flog Gnaw Carnival," the Odd Future star broke down in tears during N*E*R*D's performance of "Rock Star." Immediately after N*E*R*D's set, Mass Appeal was smart enough to grab Tyler and have him interview his idol backstage. During their talk, Pharrell gave Tyler a passionate speech about how much he appreciates him and everything he's doing for the culture.

"For me, to have these moments…the stories you used to tell me about listening to our albums, and then to see you have a show and we’re out there performing and it’s your show: that means more to me than it does to you," P said. "I would have died to have that with Q-Tip. Died. But we never did that, and you’re a different generation. I love that this generation has its anchor—that’s Odd Future. We’ve got a lot of help now, it’s not just us. As long as you stay where you are and stay loyal to your beliefs, and secondly your curiosity, no one can touch you."
