In the interview, Tyler also talked about why he didn't want pal to make contribution to his single, "IFHY". The leader of explained that he didn't think the song was suitable for Kanye.

"Kanye is one of the only few people in this industry that I consider a friend. I'll probably talk to him once a week and we just -we both have a love for art and we hate a lot of the same stuff. So, I don't want people to think that's a diss or like a side hit when I said I denied him," Tyler said.

"It was just that I played him the album before it was finished and it was a song that he really, really liked on there and he really liked it a lot and he wanted to be on it or whatever.
