Tyler, the Creator has never been one to play by the music industry rulebook, so accordingly, he has dropped “a random song [I] had laying around, made in early Feb cause why not," and truly, why not? The new track, "435," has seemingly nothing to do with its title, comprising of one minute and 32 seconds of rhythmic flow and ear-catching bars that hold back nothing. He proclaims himself to be a God, much like a certain other rapper in the press right now, and, on a scale of one to five, rates himself a seven (king of mathematics).

Most pressingly, the Grammys, which had just taken place days before recording, were seemingly on the rapper's mind, as he sends them major shade for giving him only one nomination, Best Rap Album for his critically acclaimed effort Flower Boy. For the record, he's going to “make sure that that shit ain’t happening again.” Either that means he's never releasing music again, or he'll make sure that his next album is an absolute masterpiece that can't justifiably be ignored. Let's hope for the latter.

"435" comes accompanied with a hazy clip of Tyler roaming around the studio having fun and looking fly without any work at all, fitting for a flow this effortless. Watch and listen below.
