Tyler, the Creator, A$AP Rocky Wild Out in ‘What the F–k Right Now’

Odd Future honcho spits viciously over Kanye West’s “Freestyle 4” beat

Tyler, the Creator and A$AP Rocky bring chaos to the studio in the frenzied, blue-tinted video for “What the Fuck Right Now.”

Both the track’s title and beat are borrowed from Kanye West’s “Freestyle 4” — off The Life of Pablo — and fittingly Tyler opens the second verse by paying tribute to one of his more recent collaborations with Yeezy: “Rolling Stone never gave me a cover so / Ummm… so I shot one.”

Elsewhere, Tyler’s rhymes are as rambunctious and surreal as ever — “I’m in a vacant lot doing donuts / There go my ego, Leggo my Eggo” — while A$AP Rocky holds down the intro and outro with garish hypeman braggadocio. The “What the Fuck Right Now” video also captures the track’s contained fury with Tyler and A$AP running rampant in a recording studio alongside Odd Future affiliates Domo Genesis, Jasper and Taco (Post Malone also makes a cameo at the end).

“What the Fuck Right Now” follows Tyler’s February clip for “Perfect,” which appeared on his 2015 album, Cherry Bomb.
