Album Stream: Tyler the Creator – “Wolf”
Critics and fans alike are torn on the new sound and subject matter. I won’t do a review because Big Ghostface already did us the favor, but I enjoyed the creativity of these tracks, while others left me underwhelmed. The sound is much more mature than his other two albums, but with his newfound fame comes the familiar subject of money that most rappers go on about ad nauseum.
Give Wolf a listen; while I can’t fully recommend it, I find the dude talented and hilarious and am looking forward to what comes next. Album highlights include “Rusty”, “Bimmer”, and the closer “Lone”.
