Tyler, the Creator finally explains what the name of his latest album “Call Me If You Get Lost” means.
Since the album’s release, fans have speculated about its significance, and now that it has won a Grammy, Tyler has decided to tell the truth regarding its title. The California rapper took a moment during a recent gig in Portland, Oregon, to discuss his Grammy win. The rapper thanked his fans for their support and talked about the importance of music in his life:
“I didn’t play with toys as a kid,” he said, “I would just play music, I would go to my mom’s record collection and just nerd out on music, and one of the most important genres to me is rap music.”
Tyler stated that rap music transformed not only his life but the lives of his friends as well:
“After Igor, I just noticed how much rap music changed my life, and my friends’ lives, and all of these different aspects that I get to see. So, I said, ‘Maybe I just wanna rap again. Man, I just wanna flex and talk my sh*t and brag about this sh*t that I love.”
Following the speech, Tyler decided to explain the meaning behind his last project’s title..
“And when I say Call Me If You Get Lost, I don’t mean when you don’t know what to do. I mean when you call me, I want you to be telling me the sh*t that you’re on, the sh*t that you doing. You out in the world, getting lost, really doing your sh*t. I don’t want ni***s calling me like, ‘Oh, I’m sad, I don’t know.’ No, f*ck that! Call me and let me know that you’re on your sh*t because I’m on my sh*t, and maybe we can get on that flight and meet up and see what the f*ck we on. That is what I meant by that.”
