18. Kanye performed with Tyler, The Creator at Odd Future Carnival, fulfilling the latter’s wish.
Last week, Tyler, the Creator took to Tumblr for a rare blog post. He talked about how unbelievable it was that his dreams were coming to fruition, the success of Odd Future’s annual Carnival, and his greatest achievement to date: getting Kanye West to perform at the carnival.
At the end of the show, Kanye surprised the crowd with renditions of “Late” (Tyler’s favorite Kanye song) and “New Slaves.” Elsewhere, Ye went on record to say that Tyler was a mentor and helped him with the merch for the Yeezus tour. There’s no higher compliment than that.
During that interview, Kanye says that he doesn’t accept any ideas from people older than him; he only listens to young people. His relationship with Tyler shows that a 22 year-old artist can have a major effect on a 36-year old music legend. Incredible ideas and hard work are immune to aging.
