Lil Yachty shared a series of pictures and videos from a trip Tyler, The Creator recently took to his house in a post on Instagram, Saturday afternoon. In the post, Tyler makes fun of Batman, pulls down the pants on a toy modeled after Yachty, and more.
“Tyler verbally abusing Batman is insane to see,” one fan commented in response. Another wrote, “Nah pulling down the back of his pants is crazy.” Other fans called on the two to release a collaborative album together. “You convince him to do the album?” one user asked Yachty. At one point in the post, Tyler plays piano, but it’s unclear if the two actually worked on music together.

Yachty previously discussed the idea of working on an album with Tyler following the release of his latest project, Let’s Start Here. Speaking with Billboard, Yachty revealed that Tyler served as a major inspiration for the album. “I would love to do a project with Tyler [The Creator],” Yachty said at the time. “He’s the reason I made this album, he’s the one who told me to do it, just go for it. He’s so confident and I have so much respect for him because he takes me seriously, and he always has.”
The album marked a creative departure for Yachty who opted for a psychedelic rock-influenced sound. “Fuck any of the albums I dropped before this one,” he also controversially said. “I came into music in a time where rap was real hardcore, it was real street. And a bunch of us kids came in with colorful hair and dressing different and basically said, ‘Move out the way, old fucks. We on some other shit.’ I was young and I didn’t really give a fuck, so I did do things that may have led people to the assumptions that I was a mumble rapper or a SoundCloud kid or I don’t appreciate the history of hip-hop.”
