DJ Drama Explains How Pharrell’s ‘In My Mind (The Prequel)’ Inspired Tyler, The Creator’s ‘Call Me If You Get Lost’

“I think this is Tyler’s ode to that project.” Tyler, The Creator is a major fan of Pharrell Williams, long citing The Neptunes producer as a huge influence on his music. In a recent interview with Complex, DJ Drama explained how his own work on Pharrell’s 2006 mixtape, In My Mind (The Prequel), factored into Tyler’s latest Gangsta Grillz-inspired album, CALL ME IF YOU GET LOST.

“I think something that has to be discussed, [is that] there’s a generation of people that love the Gangsta Grillz series for what it was. And then there’s also another generation that pays a lot of homage to Pharrell’s In My Mind (The Prequel),” he said. “And Tyler is one of those [people]. Me and him discussed it [and] I see people discussing it. I think this is Tyler’s ode to that project, Pharrell’s In My Mind (The Prequel).”
