Tyler, The Creator Raps Over Kanye West’s “Freestyle 4”
As debate continues as to what song off Kanye West's The Life of Pablo is the best, there is little doubt which track has connected with Tyler, the Creator the most. Last month, Tyler posted a pair of videos to Twitter (see below) of himself losing it to Kanye and Desiigner's "Freestyle 4" and now, there's video showing the Odd Future originator rapping over the track in a late night studio session.
The brief clip first surfaced on A$AP Rocky's snapchat, but was captured below thanks to TeamKanyeDaily. While the audio captured is mostly unintelligible, Tyler screaming and growling over the beat, it is notable that the footage comes from Rocky, as the A$AP Mob leader just recently did an impression of Tyler on Golf Radio that was pretty spot on. The two seem to be growing as friends after their joint tour last year.
As for the connective tissue tying Kanye and Tyler together, they were featured on "Smuckers" from Tyler's Cherry Bomb last year and Tyler leant a beat to Kim Kardashian's Kimoji app just this February. Just a day prior, Kanye had tweeted out a mocked up cover of Rolling Stone featuring himself, writing alongside that the photo was taken by Tyler. Though the cover turned out to be inauthentic, it still juxtaposed the two rappers and clothing designers, hinting at the numerous possibilities of their creative collaboration.
And if the videos below are any indication, that collaboration may come in the way of a "Freestyle 4" remix.
