Droppin' Seeds

Album: Flower Boy (2017)

Songfacts®:

  • This one-minute interlude finds Tyler, the Creator being joined by Lil Wayne. Tyler recalled the story of the song to The Carmichael Show's Jerrod Carmichael:

    "I made 'Dropping Seeds' instantly. It was just a quick instrumental I made and I go, 'I'm getting Wayne on this.' I only wanted 16 bars, maybe 8, but Wayne has to go over this. I want to hear Wayne over these notes, in this pocket, and I want to see what he would do in his high-pitched voice over this lowered tone, in this weird Brian Bennett lounge library music. I told him to just rap about flowers, garden, trees or whatever.

    I was on tour for Cherry Bomb in Omaha, Nebraska, and I got a text from him like, 'Check your email.' I check it and me and Travis are sitting there like what the f--k. not only did he bar out, but I've never heard Wayne over Price Is Right music. [It was] so on topic and so good."
