A$AP Rocky & Tyler, The Creator’s “POTATO SALAD” Explained | Song Stories


TIA: Tyler, the Creator linked up with A$AP
Rocky in Paris for a quick collab on “Potato Salad.” TIA: In the past month, Tyler’s been rhyming
over a lot of people’s songs. On “Potato Salad,” the duo rap over Monica’s
2003 track, “Knock Knock,” which was produced by Missy Elliott and Kanye West. Ye also remixed it on his early aughts mixtape,
Kon The Louis Vuitton Don. TIA: Tyler stays bragging that he’s been
getting money on most of his verses. He also references basketball player Yao Ming,
who played Center for the Houston Rockets. TIA: Tyler’s known for his sense of humor
and joking nature, but he wants people to know he’s leveled up. Tyler’s also become somewhat of a fashion
icon over the years. He’s headed both his own fashion shows and
clothing brands. TIA: On his verse, Rocky shouts out Lil B,
the Based God, by referencing his breakout song with The Pack, “Vans.” TIA: Rocky, who’s also known for his fashion
sense, uses it to make a quick reference to the movie ‘The Hangover.’ ALAN: Plus it’s not a man purse, it’s
called a satchel. TIA: Here, Rocky takes a shot at today’s
generation of younger rappers, specifically this year’s XXL Freshman Class, which many people criticized for being “mumble rappers.” TIA: “CALLDROPS” is a reference to the
track of the same name from A$AP Rocky’s latest album, ‘TESTING,’ that features
Kodak Black on a call from prison. TIA: Fans are looking forward to WANG$AP, a possible collaborative project from Tyler and Rocky sometime in the near future. But Tyler tweeted that maybe we shouldn’t get our hopes up just yet. TIA: I’m Tia with Genius News bringing you
the meaning and the knowledge behind the music. TYLER: I have nothing cool to do.
