Tyler, The Creator Urges A$AP Rocky to "Shut the F**k Up" About Project Details

Though it's clear he was just joking around with a friend, Tyler also managed to give some fantastic creative advice.

Hype can make or break a record. Tyler, The Creator knows this well and fired off a cautionary tweet aimed at frequent collaborator A$AP Rocky. Though it's clear he was just joking around with a friend, he also managed to give some fantastic creative advice.

"i wish rocky would shut the fuck up and stop always saying what he's working on 40 years before its even a fleshed out idea. with that said, again, dont get your hopes up and be 'disappointed' because something that doesnt really exist didnt come out. that shit dont exist yall =)" —Tyler, The Creator
