    yes, tyler has been producing for a long time. anyone who has listened to OF knows that. BUT, with "Wolf" he stated that this album he was focusing more on the production than the lyrics, which is a change for him, because the lyrics, the story and the image were the primary focus of his previous work. Yeah it is a some what misleading tagline, but its not completely inaccurate.

    "Tyler ,The Creator moving into production..." He's produced over 99 percent of what he's been on and some for others. How much moving into production can he do HHDX?
