Odd Future front man Tyler, The Creator really “Ain’t Got Time!”
The rapper just released the new single “Ain’t Got Time” from his forth coming Flower Boy album and there’s two things to point out about the song: It’s that one record everyone has been talking about that alludes to Tyler’s sexuality AND it’s that one song that Tyler tried to recruit Nicki Minaj for, but he had no luck.

The track premiered on Zane Lowe’s Beats 1 show and the MC got super candid on how he created the song and how Kanye West was catching z’s in the studio as he recorded.
In the interview, Tyler says:
I remember being at Ye’s during The Lufe of Pablo, and I think he went to take a nap.” I was in the studio…and I started smacking, started clappin, making weird noises. I was like, “Damn, Kanye should take this song. He would sound so much cooler…”
Tyler went on to mention that he reached out to rapper Nicki Minaj for a feature but she supposedly said, “She couldn’t think of nothing.”
