The California rapper's latest release, a freestyle called "GELATO," includes yet another shout out to the VMAN 39 cover star (throwback to when he complimented Chalamet's skin in his recent track "OKRA"), this time in the form of a reference to Call Me by Your Name, the blockbuster indie film in which the actor stars.

Spiting bars over Jacquees' "No Validation," Tyler quips: “You got me on tippy toe/So who’s Oliver? Who Elio?”

This is not Tyler, the Creator's first foray into freestyling. He has also rhymed over Kanye West and Kid Cudi's "Kids See Ghosts," JAY-Z's "4:44," and Trouble and Drake's "Bring It Back." "GELATO" is our favorite for obvious reasons, though it left us hoping for some peach-related innuendo in upcoming songs.

Check out the 2-minute track below.
