Tyler released Wolf this year to critical praise. HipHopDX's Jesse Fairfax rated the album a 4/5. 5 was also the most popular rating given to the album by readers. 

Back in March 2011, Tyler shared that he viewed West as his competition because he was such a big fan of his.

"I'm coming for Kanye West's head because he's my competition," Tyler said. "I'm a big Kanye West fan, and I also compose music and I rap and I direct videos, and I don't want him to think he's the only person that could do that... My competition isn't other upcoming rappers and shit. It's him."

In 2011, West also shared that he was a Tyler, The Creator fan. He tweeted that "Yonkers" was his choice for video of the year. That video can be viewed below.
