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.

“Road to Nowhere”

Talking Heads | 1985

A cappella harmonies give way to an a fuller arrangement blending pop and electro-disco on "Road to Nowhere," but the theme remains constant: We're on an eternal journey to an undefined destination. The song vaulted back into the news a quarter century after it was a hit when Gov. Charlie Crist used it in his unsuccessful 2010 campaign for the U.S. Senate in Florida. "It's this little ditty about how there's no order and no plan and no scheme to life and death and it doesn't mean anything, but it's all right," Byrne said with a chuckle.
