Like clockwork, every two years, we can expect a new album from Tyler The Creator. The 30-year-old recording artist is constantly reinventing himself, enjoying his role as one of the only true “era artists” in hip-hop. Most recently, he shifted his sound to create the memorable IGOR and it looks like we may be anticipating a return to some of Tyler’s grittier energy from the Odd Future days with his latest single, which is officially out now.
After cleverly teasing new music all week with mysterious videos and toll-free phone numbers for his fans to call and listen to previews, Tyler The Creator has come through with his new single “LUMBERJACK.” The track is much harder than what we’ve heard from Tyler in recent years. This also appears to be a collaboration with DJ Drama, who gives the track that perfect mixtape sound.
