Recently, Elliott Wilson and Brian “B.Dot” Miller presented a new episode of their “Rap Radar Podcast,” featuring Tyler, The Creator as their special guest. During the interview, they asked Tyler about his collaboration with NBA YoungBoy on the successful album “Call Me If You Get Lost.”
Tyler spoke highly of NBA YoungBoy, describing him as nice and a sweetheart. He shared an anecdote about their time together, mentioning how they had ice cream and went vintage car shopping. Tyler praised NBA YoungBoy’s quick delivery of the verse for the song, expressing his satisfaction with the outcome. He also appreciated NBA YoungBoy’s ability to stay on topic, contrasting it with other artists who struggle to do so. Tyler specifically desired NBA YoungBoy’s Louisiana drawl and accent for the track, as it added a unique touch.
When B.Dot mentioned the surprise many felt regarding the collaboration, Tyler responded by emphasizing his role as a producer and his deep love for music. He believed that, from a broader perspective, it shouldn’t be seen as shocking.
The mentioned song, “WUSYANAME,” featured a sample from H-Town’s “Back Seat With No Sheets” and included a guest appearance by Ty Dolla $ign. It showcased a departure from NBA YoungBoy’s usual hard-hitting style, as he joined Tyler in expressing sentiments of budding love and romance.
