Tyler, the Creator’s new solo album, Wolf, is officially out today. Following a leak of the album a few days ago, Wolf is available digitally today and will be in stores tomorrow. Earl Sweatshirt, Left Brain, Hodgy Beats and other members of Odd Future Wolf Gang Kill Them All crew are featured on the effort as are Pharrell, Erykah Badu and Dave Matthews.
Tyler has released a few songs leading into the album. In late March, he teased “Partyisntover/Campfire/Bimmer” with Frank Ocean as well as a visual for “IFHY” with Pharrell. Earlier, he released the boxing themed “Domo 23” visual from Wolf.
Fans’ initial reactions to the album were largely positive. “always love Tyler the Creator. this is so, so, so, good. cannot wait for WOLF to drop” said one on Twitter and others opined, “The new Tyler, The Creator album “Wolf” is pretty fantastic” and “I looooooooove Tyler, the Creator’s WOLF. it’s so good. still listening to it non stop.”
Tyler himself was tweeting up a storm about Wolf. “MY FAVORITE IS PARTYISNTOVER WHATS YOURS?,” he asked fans earlier today. Always good-humored, he even ReTweeted a negative review of ” Wolf is trash.”
@mustygrandma I think Tyler made the whole Wolf album into a story with the screenplay book that comes with the Deluxe CD. That’s so sick.
@ChrisMontana Tyler had some deep verses on this Wolf album.
@koolkid_lenny production wise, wolf is amazing, Tyler has grown.
@TheJordonRooney Wolf is so good. Its a shame that Tyler the Creator’s intelligence will never be appreciated cuz u idiots glamorize simple meaningless rap.
@DevlinKieran Tyler’s Wolf is excellent. Hip-hop album to beat this year. Lags in the middle a bit, but some superb songs.
@Mari0Boss I just bought Tyler the Creator’s “Wolf”. It’s absolutely amazing. This is not a prank, it’s actuality
@adrianp88 The production on IFHY is really good. Tyler’s growth as a producer really shows on Wolf.
