Tyler, The Creator may be working his latest charting-topping album ‘Call Me If You Get Lost,’ but it was talk about the project’s predecessor ‘IGOR’ that sent tongues wagging following a new interview with Hot 97.
The 2019 set notably launched at #1 upon its arrival and in doing so eclipsed the sales of DJ Khaled’s then-new album ‘Father of Asahd.’
At the time, Khaled responded to the position, saying:
“I make albums so people can play it and you actually hear it. You know, driving your car, you hear another car playing it. You know, go to the barbershop, you hear them playing it. You know, turn the radio on, and you hear them playing it. It’s called great music. It’s called albums that you actually hear the songs. Not no mysterious shit that you never hear it.”
In the frame since, Tyler has touched on the topic at a surface level. However, he clearly had no issue making his feelings known in a detailed manner during his sit-down interview.

Speaking with Ebro, Peter Rosenberg, and Laura Stylez, the rapper said of his one-time rival:
“That DJ Khaled thing was fun. It was just watching a man die inside because the weirdo is winning. I was moon-walking in a wig. This ni**a had everyone on his album. Like EVERYONE.
Ni**a ego had to deal with that because his whole identity is being #1 and when he didn’t get that, that sat with him longer in real life time than that moment. I moved on. I’m doing shows in London. Meanwhile, his whole identity is ‘We the Best, we the #1.’ When the underdog to him took that away from him, that ni**a ego was deflated. He will probably never admit it and it’s no hard feelings towards him.”
