In his new song “Garbage,” Tyler, the Creator struggles to curb his enthusiasm. To serrated blips recalling a radar detector and the rattle of a spray paint can, the Odd Future rap ringleader imagines himself as an out-the-trunk salesman before he searches for a bigger thrill.
By now, fans can predict (but still feel thrilled by) what comes next: Tyler’s gravelly voice mutates to a growl when people are killed. He calls himself a Wolf and, as he does in that album, he sounds slumped over when he returns back to drugs-oriented retail, as if no longer hungry.
While bearing the same Slim Shady-inspired eeriness of “Rusty,” Tyler’s production is inspired by the Neptunes like much of his other music to-date. Specifically, he cites earlier cuts for Fam-Lay and Clipse‘s “trashcan sounding shit”— as Pharrell and Clipse member Pusha T would point out, meaning breakout hit “Grindin’.”
“Garbage” is reportedly set for Grand Theft Auto V, out September 15. For now, hear it after the jump.
