Tyler, the Creator seemingly hasn’t stopped to rest at all in recent months. Amid dropping an album, inking a deal with Converse, and starring in a new TV show, now the ever-busy creative has taken the time to pay homage to one of hip-hop’s greats by hopping on JAY-Z’s “4:44.”

On “ZIPLOC,” Tyler in turn hits the No I.D. beat with fury, unleashing braggadocios raps surrounding his late blooming, Golf le Fleur sneakers, Flower Boy and more. Oh, and once again there’s another reference to his sexuality, as he raps “And I pedal through the city with the wide frame steer/with that tall pale boy that I met last year/grape, thats what I call em, love, thats what I fall in.”
