Tyler The Creator Addresses DJ Khaled Feud Over #1 Album: ‘This N***a Had Every Person In The Industry On That Album’
Tyler The Creator is speaking out about his beef with DJ Khaled. DJ Khaled sparked the feud when Tyler’s IGOR album beat DJ Khaled’s Father of Asahd for the #1 spot on the Billboard 200 chart. Both projects were released on May 17.
DJ Khaled was accused of subliminally dissing Tyler in a video. DJ Khaled said,
“I gotta say this, too. I make albums so people can play it and you actually hear it. You know, drive in the car and you hear another car playin’ it. You know, go to the barbershop and you hear them playin’ it. You know, turn the radio on and you hear them playin’ it. You know, it’s playin’ everywhere. It’s called great music. It’s called albums that you actually hear the songs – not no mysterious sh*t and you never hear it. Pon your dome!”
Tyler seemed to respond.
Now, he has more to say, after pointing out he didn’t have too many fans of his 2015 Cherry Bomb project.
“I’m just saying people f***ing hated that f***ing [Cherry Bomb] album. I put [IGOR] out and it [landed at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 albums chart], and again, I don’t make s*** to be first week or be radio or whatever, but for this work of art and that album cover and these videos and me doing this suit wig thing and having these progressions and this distorted this and that, and these melodies and this stuff like that, beat … “
He then pointed out that DJ Khaled had lots of popular artists featured on his album.
“…and this is no disrespect to Khaled or anyone, but this n***a had every person in the industry, everyone on that f***ing album. Everyone. Everyone. Cardi B. 21 Savage. Travis Scott. Post Malone. Beyoncé. Jay. Everyone who sells billions of records and the fact that I beat him with this that isn’t parallel to all the popping music right now was f***ing crazy, bro.”
