Tyler, The Creator recently opened up about his 2019 battle with DJ Khaled for the No. 1 spot on the Billboard 200 chart and the “Lumberjack” rapper didn’t hold any punches.

Tyler sat down on Hot 97’s Ebro in the Morning show on Friday (Aug. 6) where he chopped it up with co-host Peter Rosenberg. During the 90-minute conversation, the incident where Khaled appeared to slight Tyler when Igor beat out Father of Asahd for No. 1 on the Billboard 200 chart in 2019 came up. “Bro that Khaled thing was like, it was fun, it was just watching a man die inside,” Tyler said around the 51-minute mark of the interview. “The weirdo was winning, I was moonwalking in a wig. This nigga had everyone on his album. Everyone.”https://7602c6b1ba6d03e634684e45464b6e9e.safeframe.googlesyndication.com/safeframe/1-0-38/html/container.html

Tyler went on to say Khaled’s ego was damaged after coming in second. “For some guy like that to kind of indirectly be like, ‘That ain’t real rap, that ain’t real Black music.’ That’s what it felt like,” Tyler said. “And I was like, my nigga, don’t do…but I didn’t say nothing, I just let that No. 1 speak. Nigga’s ego had to deal with that because his whole identity is being No. 1. And when he didn’t get that, that sat with him longer in real-life time than that moment. I moved on.”

Tyler added, “That nigga ego was deflated, he’ll probably never admit [it].” The former Odd Future frontman said he now has no hard feelings toward the We The Best boss.
