If you're anything like me, the first time you heard the title track to Kanye West and Kid Cudi's joint Kids See Ghosts album, you loudly proclaimed, "Tyler, the Creator needs to throw a verse or three on top of this!" Well, now that has actually happened.

After letting the chorus ride out, Tyler enters the Ye x Cudi zone with a line about calling his sister and admitting he doesn't tell her he loves her enough. From there, the late Stephen Hawking gets a mention, as does anyone with data-challenged cellular plans trying to "cancel" him on Twitter.

Last month, Tyler shared a new one-off titled "435." When tweet-alerting fans to the song, Tyler noted the track consisted of "just a verse" he recorded in Philadelphia while touring Scum Fuck Flower Boy. "This is not an indication of how future things will sound," he said.


Future things, however, do appear to already be in motion. Speaking with Complex for his cover story earlier this year, Tyler's "Who Dat Boy" collaborator ASAP Rocky shared some intel. The stuff Tyler has been working on recently, according to Rocky, is "a new wave" and doesn't resemble the Flower Boy era. "I'm not even lying," Rocky said. "Honestly, sonically he challenged himself in a different way."
