posted by Oscar June 29, 2017

Tyler’s back! Tyler, the Creator has finally released some new material, ending our collective streak without new music from him by delivering “Who Dat Boy.” The track features his partner A$AP Rocky, and it is available to check out along with its music video that was directed by Tyler himself, credited under his directing pseudonym, Wolf Haley.

The music video is incredibly intense, depicting Tyler roaming suburbia after an explosion opened up his face, which leads us to Rocky hooking his bro up with some necessary face transplant surgery. After Tyler escapes the police, the video cuts to him dancing along to his new song with Frank Ocean, “911.”

See all that unfold in the clip above.

Frank Ocean Shares New Track feat. Jay Z and Tyler, the Creator: “Biking”

posted by Oscar April 8, 2017

Frank Ocean has graced the weekend with another new song, making use of the broadcast of the third episode of Beats 1 show blonded Radio.

The track is called “Biking” and it features Jay Z and Tyler, the Creator. The production starts off a little more organic thanks to the piano taking the lead before making way for an acoustic guitar, then taking a turn for the hazy when the verses start to pop off. HOVA provided a decent intro, but it’s Ocean’s rapping that is the true highlight throughout, but Tyler’s raspy verse isn’t too far behind either.

Peep the latest Frank Ocean offering below. Continue Reading
