By Natasha Nanner. Leading on from the first two episodes of his CRWN live interview with Tyler, The Creator, veteran journalist Elliott Wilson drops the final two instalments of the pair’s discussion, delving even deeper into the mind of one of the most unique artists in the industry right now. Despite his playful persona and his penchant for pranks and practical jokes, Tyler shows us his more serious side this time around and isn’t afraid of opening up – especially when it comes to discussing the way he idolises Pharrell Williams and how he coped with the death of his grandmother.
Speaking about the first time he met Pharrell, the Odd Future frontman said: “Meeting Pharrell was crazy because I’ve been a die hard, almost weird, f-ckin’ obsessive stand since I was like 11. Seeing this dude who I would always just watch on TV, in every magazine could possibly get and I know every lyric… I walk in and it was just like ‘He’s real’… I don’t give a f-ck, I’m in there fanning out.” Tyler then went on to admit that working with the N*E*R*D star on his track “IFHY” was the best moments of his life. “I’ve been wanting that since I was 11… not many people can say they were vocal producing Pharrell, that was f-ckin’ tight.”
