In June, Tyler, The Creator released the A$AP Rocky-assisted "Who Dat Boy" as the lead single off his acclaimed new album, Flower Boy, but that was only made possible because, according to Tyler, ScHoolboy Q turned down the beat.

Tyler's hilarious, all-caps response came after Q jokingly responded to a fan on Twitter that the reason why Tyler and Rocky didn't ask Q to join them on "Who Dat Boy" is because they "didn't wanna get bodied."

Polo Perks Is Building a Future From Pieces of the Past

We talk to the Surf Gang artist about microdosing alternative music in his raps.

In just the past two months, there have been a rash of "this beat was originally made for" stories, including Future's "Codeine Crazy" being made for Nicki Minaj, Travis Scott’s “Drugs You Should Try It” being made for Big Sean, and Azealia Banks "ATM Jam" being a Mac Miller leftover meant for Beyoncé. 

ScHoolboy Q might have passed on Tyler's "Who Dat Boy" beat, but that doesn't mean he isn't working on new material. Late last year, the TDE emcee shared his desire to release the follow-up to 2016's Blank Face LP before the end of 2017.

TDE has not announced their release schedule for the remaining four-and-a-half months of the current calendar year, but following SiR's Her Too EP, Kendrick Lamar's DAMN. and SZA's Ctrl, it is widely assumed the next artist on the roster to release their project will be Jay Rock.
