Yachty said that Tyler was the one that inspired him to make his psych-pop and rock album, "Let's Start Here."

Let's Start Here is one of the most talked about and acclaimed albums of the year so far, and its creator is looking to continue in that direction. Moreover, Lil Yachty recently expressed that he'd love to do a collab album with Tyler, the Creator. Not only that, but he told Billboard during an interview that the Golf Wang mogul inspired him to experiment in the first place. While many turned Yachty's album into thinkpiece fodder, its most triumphant victory is the sheer quality, creativity, and artistic vision on display regardless of what he did or didn't do before. In a similar way, Tyler's been one of the most evolutionary and artistically motivated figures of our time, so the connection is unsurprising but incredibly exciting.

"[Tyler] is the reason I made this album," the Atlanta creator expressed. "He’s the one who told me to do it, just go for it. He’s so confident and I have so much respect for him because he takes me seriously, and he always has." Later in the interview, he added, “I would love to do a project with Tyler.” 

Lil Yachty & Tyler, The Creator Collab Album Could Happen One Day

Of course, this should send fans of either or both artists into a frenzy. Furthermore, the 25-year-old crafted one of the year's most definitive pieces of music so far, kicking off 2023 with a lot of discussion and acclaim. Meanwhile, fans of T know that he's due another project quite soon, as it's an odd year and it's been two years since his last album. The former Odd Future boss hasn't strayed from his release schedule yet, although he's so deep into his acclaimed career that a switch-up wouldn't be frustrating at all.

Still, if a collaborative track, album, video, or whatever else sees the light of day, it should make for a really colorful team-up. After all, their track "T.D." from Yachty's Lil Boat 3 was a fun banger that also featured A$AP Rocky and Tierra Whack. However you may feel about their music, you can't deny that they're two of the rap-adjacent world's most boundary-pushing leaders in 2023. Regardless, check back in with HNHH for the latest on Lil Yachty and Tyler, the Creator.
