Tyler, The Creator has spent 2018 doing pretty much whatever he wants, from releasing new originals — like “OKRA” and “Rose Tinted Cheeks” and “435” — to remixing tracks like Trouble & Drake’s “Bring It Back.” His latest is more in line with the latter: He’s offered up a freestyle over the beat of the title track from Kanye West and Kid Cudi’s new collaborative album Kids See Ghosts. Tyler’s version is dubbed “CRUST IN THEIR EYES.”
“yooooo so i like this song alot and wrote to it the same hour i heard it and my friend sent me the instrumental i recorded it that night and here you go cause why not let it exist,” he tweeted after releasing it.
Listen to it below.
UPDATE: Tyler, The Creator’s Kids See Ghosts freestyle was blocked from YouTube due to a copyright claim from Universal Music Group.

Before it was taken down, he also shed some light on his nascent history with the beat: “ye sent me that beat same night i also think his original verse on it is soooooooo fucking good i love his pocket on it and mighty mos sounds great on it ecstatic is a flawless album”
