Advertisements

It is impossible to talk about the progression of an artist and to not bring up Tyler, The Creator, someone who is able to capture an audience as a shocking performer to now being a cultural hero for more than just the strange skater kids.

From the days of Flower Boy, to Igor, to now reaching Call Me If You Get Lost, there is an undeniable factor of progression and pushing a sound with sonic chord structure. The function in a transitional factor personally, Call Me If You Get Lost came at the perfect time to introduce the waterfalls of growth into more smiles and passport stamps.

Coming as the sixth studio record, there are moments of each of Tyler, The Creator’s records all pushed into one worldly ensemble. It is easy to be proud from the teenager posting on music forums to now running what becomes an empire. And with that empire comes the introspective maturity to flex a little, or a lot in this case.

In Tyler’s most cohesive project yet, Call Me If You Get Lost is honestly beautiful from a production standpoint. Tracks like “WUSYANAME” or “SWEET / I THOUGHT YOU WANTED TO DANCE” could be scored in the indie movie dreams of fields and rolling hills. Then pieces like “LUMBERJACK” with the features from DJ Drama shouting “CATCH UP NIGGAS” as Tyler delivers some of his most energetic performances yet.

Describing, “MSG sell out, fuck these yap ‘bout, whips on whips, my ancestors got they backs out,” Other moments like “MASSA” are less about the accolades and more about how far you can really take life especially when the second verse comes into the frame. Tyler illustrates, “I purchase more wheels when I feel like I’m third-wheelin’. My favorite part of the double R is the bird ceiling.”

The following piece, “RUNITUP” has a moment of spoken word from Tyler, The Creator where his vision and trust in himself becomes more and more clear with each release. Describing, “I always had confidence, I ain’t never been nervous, I ain’t never had anxiety, I ain’t never second-guessed myself. If I want it, I go get it, I’m always on go mode, I just go.” The features from DJ Drama only add to the hype and beauty as he shouts well over these warm horns and thumps of bass.

Only an introduction that gains into the personal favorite, “JUGGERNAUT” where the syncopated snare snaps that lead into the track are an opening to the gates of one of the most entertaining moments of Call Me If You Get Lost. Truthfully, the best verse comes from Pharrell off one line alone. He illustrates, “They just got the closet picture of the fuckin’ sun surface, that was us. Got the LaFerrari, park that bitch just for one purpose, catchin’ dust”

Basically, it is impossible not to smile on Call Me If You Get Lost and to feel this pride for the definition of a true visionary. Tyler, The Creator not only creates a desire to be associated but also a strive to do better for yourself.
