In the latest instalment of GOLF Radio, Tyler, The Creator sits down with Longbeach rapper Vince Staples to discuss how art influences the kids and how crazy it is seeing people wearing the same clothes as them.

Vince also mentions how Tyler’s breakthrough track ‘Yonkers’ was a joke beat and that Tyler made it in eight minutes. “Dude, n***as don’t know that that beat was made as a joke. I was trying to make a shitty New York beat and we was just rapping like we was from New York like we were retarded. And then, I just had some random verses and I was just like ‘I’ll just record it to this beat, this beat is kinda cool.’ And then n****s really liked it. That’s so nuts, because that shit was actually a fucking joke. I made that beat in literally eight minutes.”

Refreshingly, Vince reflects on recognising how influential they have become to some of their young fans and monitoring their words and actions accordingly. Check out a snippet of their conversation above. GOLF radio is available to stream via the GOLF Media app.
