The Boy Who Cried Wolf.
Tyler, The Creator has never been one to hold back. So on his third LP Wolf, The Odd Future frontman offers more pieces of vulnerability. Handling a bulk off the production, Tyler showed growth both on the mic (“Rusty”) and behind the boards (“Jamba”), allowing himself to share his untold story.
Toning down the dark twisted content, his alter ego “Sam” returns on the title track,”Wolf”. Touching on a broader range of topics,Tyler addresses his father’s absence (“Answer”), grandmother’s death (“Lone”), drugs (“48”), and last, but certainly not least, tender love (“Awkward”, “IFHY”). Aww. Leave it up to Mr. West’s mentor to deliver.—Big Homie
