Once again, the Neptunes loom heavy in the production of Tyler, the Creator: Over the weekend, the Odd Future honcho released a new track, "Garbage," that's reportedly set to appear in the upcoming video game Grand Theft Auto V, out September 15th.

Tyler, the Creator Responds to Criticism of Mountain Dew Ad

"I wanted to make a beat that reminded of drug dealing old Fam-Lay, Clipse trashcan sounding shit," Tyler tweeted about the cut, implicitly referencing Pharrell and Chad Hugo's idiosyncratic production from the early 2000s. Indeed his track bubbles with an assortment of hollow clicks, gnawing blips and one malicious synth line, over which Tyler raps about a psychopathic drug dealer with some pretty nasty habits (y'know, like, murder).

Listen to the song below, and check out our review of Tyler's second studio album, Wolf, released earlier this year.

“Money For Nothing”

Dire Straits | 1984

Mark Knopfler wrote this song with Sting, and it wasn’t without controversy. The Dire Straits frontman's original lyric used the word “faggot” to describe a singer who got their “money for nothing and their chicks for free.” Even though the slur was edited out in many versions, the band, and Knopfler, still took plenty of criticism for the term. “I got an objection from the editor of a gay newspaper in London--he actually said it was below the belt,” Knopfler told Rolling Stone. Still, "Money For Nothing," undoubtedly augmented by its innovative early computer-animated video, stayed at Number One for three weeks.
