TYLER, THE CREATOR - AIN'T GOT TIME
At the end of June, Tyler dropped the initial single off his forthcoming album named Flower Boy. Nearly a month later, with the aid of Frank Ocean and company on his next release, "911/Mr. Lonely," "I Ain't Got Time" features him at his best, spitting rhymes at an incredible pace. The track gives insight into the current mindset of Tyler, such as ditching Vans for a new collaboration with Converse, already sold out upon release and perhaps giving evidence to his sexual orientation with a line like: “I've been kissing white boys since 2004.” Personal effects aside, the beat is contiguous having your toes tapping like a mad-man. Inject a catchy hook into this work, and it's guaranteed to have the dance floor popping. The delivery is solid. Track is loaded with potential.
Interestingly, Tyler's fourth album could be a groundbreaking one. Combined with his recent sneaker successes, this is the defining moment in his career. One can only hope that he can trudge on and wrap it with a bow before the year is done.
