Tyler The Creator just released his sixth studio album titled “Call Me If You Get Lost.” The rapper, singer, songwriter, and producer dropped two singles “Lumberjack,” and “WusYaName,” on June 16th and June 22nd of 2021. In this release, Tyler returns to his hardcore hip hop, in which he has been distancing himself from from his last two albums.
The album first gained attention as there was a promotional billboard for the album rollout. The billboard consisted of a phone number in which if you called, a recorded conversation of Tyler and his mother plays. About a week later when the billboard was spotted, Tyler tweeted the phone number, making it official that there was something happening in which Tyler was involved.
The album has some guest appearances which consist of 42 Dugg, Ty Dolla Sign, NBA Youngboy, Lil Wayne, Teezo Touchdown, Domo Genesis, Brent Faiyaz, Fana Hues, Daisy World, Lil Uzi Vert, and Pharrell Williams, respectively.
The 16 track/52 minute album is a masterpiece from start to finish, especially with Tyler’s iconic sample use which include:
“Sir Baudelaire” contains samples of “Michael Irvin”, performed by Westside Gunn.
“Manifesto” contains samples of “I’m Gonna Love You Just A Little Bit More Baby”, performed by Jimmy Smith, and “Nazareth Savage”, performed by Nas.
“WusYaName” contains samples of “Back Seat (Wit No Sheets)”, performed by H-Town.
“Lumberjack” contains samples of “2 Cups of Blood”, performed by Gravediggaz.
In my opinion, this is Tyler’s best body of art to this day, where he displays his inner self and comes back with his roots while mixing it up with his new style.
I’d highly recommend that you listen to this album start to finish and multiple times when you got have the chance.
