Teaser after teaser later, Tyler, the Creator has finally released his follow-up to the Grammy-winning Igor: his sixth studio album, Call Me If You Get Lost.
The 16-track record pays homage to 2000s' mixtapes such as the Dedication series by Lil Wayne hosted by DJ Drama. Tyler's new album features those two artists, as well as Lil Uzi Vert and Pharrell (“Juggernaut”), Ty Dolla $ign and YoungBoy Never Broke Again (“WusYaName”), 42 Dugg (“Lemonhead”), Domo Genesis (“Manifesto”), and more.
Additionally, Jamie xx is credited as a co-producer on “Rise!” and in an Instagram Story, Tyler noted Jay Versace’s contribution to the track “Safari.”
The project is a dream come true for Tyler. Not long after he dropped the album, he quote-tweeted a post he wrote in 2010. "I WANT A GANGSTA GRILLZ TAPE SO F****** BAD GOT DAMN.” He added: “DONE. ALBUM*”

Tyler later posted a video of him and DJ Drama in the studio. He said that the DJ Drama collaboration is a result of "years of needing this" and that his 15-year-old self is satisfied.
Tyler's previous album Igor took home the Grammy for Best Rap Album in early 2020. Call Me If You Get Lost was preceded by a number of teasers, including billboards with a number fans could call, a video called "Side Street," a website, and two visuals: “Lumberjack” and “WusYaName.” Earlier this week, Tyler also shared a sketch called "Brown Sugar Salmon," in which he plays an alter ego called Mr. Boudelaire.
Call Me If You Get Lost is now available to stream. More details are yet to come regarding CD and vinyl releases.
