If you’ve been anxiously waiting for WANG$AP, the highly teased collaborative effort between Tyler, the Creator and A$AP Rocky, to arrive then we’ve got sad news: The project isn’t happening any time soon.
On Tuesday morning, Tyler took to Twitter to quash any speculation of a joint album with A$AP Rocky:
i wish rocky would shut the fuck up and stop always saying what he’s working on 40 years before its even a fleshed out idea. with that said, again, dont get your hopes up and be ‘disappointed’ because something that doesnt really exist didnt come out. that shit dont exist yall =)

The tweet was in response to Rocky’s latest interview on The Angie Martinez Show, in which the Harlem native revealed he was working on new projects, including one with the Odd Future co-founder. “I’m working on my music right now. Working on another project. Working with my brother, Tyler, the Creator. His dumb ass,” he said with some affection.
This isn’t the first time Tyler has gotten publicly exasperated with Rocky. Last year, the Flower Boy rapper told fans to not “get [their] hopes up” after the pair’s video for their “Potato Salad” freestyle teased a WANG$AP collaboration.
ima kill rocky for that idk whats coming soon or not dont get yo hopes up nigga just be excited but enjoy it ( knock knock by monica i was tryna rap on that for 10 years ha)
