Tyler, The Creator dropped his Cherry Bomb album earlier this month which features a dope track with Kanye West and Lil Wayne entitled “Smuckers.” The Odd Future rapper has received some positive feedback on the song but now he has revealed something about the track that not a lot of people knew. Tyler said that the song was originally meant for Jay Z and Kanye West. Find out why they didn’t use the song after the jump!
Tyler, The Creator is not the one to hold anything back. The California native spoke with Billboard about his new album Cherry Bomb and broke down everything that went into making songs like “Find Your Wings” and “F*****g Young/Perfect.” He was able to defined the meanings behind each track and explained where he drew the inspiration from. Later on, he revealed that the song “Smuckers” was meant to go to Jay Z and Kanye West when he made the song in 2011, which probably would have ended up on their joint album Watch The Throne.
“I made ‘Smuckers’ in 2011 and sent it to Jay Z and ‘Ye,” Tyler told Billboard. “They were going to use it, but I kind of took it back. I was trying to make horn sections and drum kicks that sound epic. The second half is this jazz ensemble. I’m like, “Oh my God, this is f—ing amazing.”
Tyler claimed that his and Wayne’s verses encouraged Yeezus to “step his game up” in order to lay down his verse. He also said that “Smuckers” was the last song he worked on before wrapping up the album. Later on, the Odd Future founder explained why he “cursed out” Kendall Jenner during his most recent performance at Coachella and his feelings about the recent social injustice that has been making headlines for the past few years.
