Tyler, the Creator Drops “I Ain’t Got Time,” and says that Kanye and Nicki Minaj Both Declined to Collab on It

Tyler, the Creator‘s new album Scum Fuck Flower Boy will be officially released Friday. Following previous album glimpses “Who Dat Boy,” “911/Mr. Lonely,” and “Boredom,” Tyler has shared another new song. “I Ain’t Got Time,” produced by Tyler, also features vocals from Shane Powers. Take a listen above.

The track—which has garnered a lot of attention for its lyrics—premiered today on Zane Lowe’s Beats 1 show.zne

“I remember being at Ye’s during Life of Pablo, and I think he went to take a nap,” Tyler said, noting that the track in its current form first started as two separate beats. “I was just in the studio and there was an MPC there. I literally . . . I was like, Noah . . . just start recording me. I just started smacking, started clapping, started making weird noises.” West ultimately passed on the idea. “He didn’t like it,” Tyler said. It wasn’t Yeezy’s style I guess, which is understandable.

Tyler also said that he wanted a Nicki Minaj verse on an earlier version of the track but the collaboration ended up not coming together. “I didn’t want a second verse at all,” Tyler said. “I wanted Nicki Minaj on that shit so fucking bad.” Minaj, who first caught Tyler’s ear on “Four Door Aventador,” responded to the invitation but “couldn’t think of nothing.” Truth is, she probably wasn’t interested. Oh well. I’m ready for this album!
