Now Hear This: Tyler, the Creator's 'Wolf'

Tyler, the Creator releases his third album, Wolf, today.

For the project, the Odd Future frontman enlisted several of his labelmates, including Hodgy Beats, Frank Ocean, and Left Brain. In addition to cameos from Odd Future singers, Wolf also features some big names, like R&B singer Erykah Badu, Pharrell, former group member Casey Veggies and vocalist Dave Matthews (from the Dave Matthews Band).

Tyler has had a recent surge in mainstream popularity, but fans can still expect the same dark, brooding lyrics on Wolf. During a recent interview with LA Weekly, the rapper said, "I was pissed, and then life kinda started getting good. But Wolf is emotional. It's bright and dark. I brag about having a four-story house but being lonely."

Despite his newfound success, the 22-year-old still feels like an outcast among his peers. "Even if I'm at the Grammy [Awards], I feel like I'm an outsider," he confessed. "I don't really think about s*** until someone brings it up. I can't explain how it is. I'm not lonely; I just don't have anyone to relate to."

Wolf, which was produced in its entirety by Tyler, is a follow-up to the California native's studio debut, Goblin, and its predecessor, the self-released Bastard. The albums were released in 2011 and 2009, respectively, and were both praised by critics and fans.

In other news, Tyler will soon be headed back stateside for the second half of his Wolf tour, which started in mid-March.
