A$AP, Tyler and Kanye West? Sort of.

Yep. It’s here. After announcing their September tour last August (a whole damn seven months ago) and leaving us obsessing over any vague hint of the collab, A$AP Rocky and Tyler, the Creator have finally released some music. The track layers Tyler’s dark erratic tone over the eery violins of Kanye’s “Freestyle 4” like it was never a Kanye track to begin with, and we’re pretty upset that the beat wasn’t Tyler’s in the first place.

Before the tour announcement you’d never really think that Rocky and Ty would get along at all, but they do – and sound even better than you wanted them to as they discuss all manner of things from fashion, cars, and dick to sniffing glitter. A$AP’s non-credited addition is minor in the form of some aggy shouting of the hook (a line from the Kanye original), but we’ll ignore our desire for a verse for the benefit of watching him fuck about in a room with Tyler and his mates.
