Tyler, The Creator has released the instrumentals to Wolf to commemorate the album’s 10th anniversary — check it out below.
A week after dropping Call Me If You Get Lost: The Estate Sale, Tyler came bearing gifts once again on Friday (April 7) by sharing all of the beats from his sophomore album on streaming services.
“WOLF instrumentals out now. all my age 20/21 beats for ya ears,” he wrote on Twitter.
Fans of the former Odd Future frontman were pleasantly surprised to see that the three-pack of “PartyIsntOver,” “Campfire” and “Bimmer” have been broken up into separate tracks on the instrumental version.

Wolf originally arrived on April 2, 2013 via Odd Future Records and debuted at No. 3 on the Billboard 200 with 89,000 copies sold in its first week.
The follow-up to Tyler’s breakout debut LP Goblin, the album included features from Frank Ocean, Pharrell, Earl Sweatshirt, Erykah Badu, Domo Genesis, Casey Veggies and more.
“With Wolf, I really just emulated everything listen to,” Tyler said in an interview with Guerilla Union following its release. “I love Grizzly Bear, I love Tame Impala … I sat there and I studied how they do basslines and when the chords kick in and when the fucking drums drop or whatever.
“I have songs like ‘Slater’ and ‘Awkward’ where I’m a big fane of Jade and Zhané and Faith Evans, early ’90s R&B, so I just tried to copy the way that that sound … ‘Treehome,’ I just wanted to be fucking Roy Ayers and do bridges like Lonnie Liston Smith. And ‘Tamale,’ I love Teriyaki Boyz and Gwen Stefani and Missy Elliott.”

Tyler also delivered The Estate Sale last week, which is essentially the deluxe edition of his Grammy-winning 2021 CALL ME IF YOU GET LOST album featuring eight new tracks with assists from Vince Staples, A$AP Rocky and more.
Tyler also appeared in an episode of Hulu’s new RapCaviar Presents docuseries where he explained why being a rapper is “awesome.”
“We’re good with words. We’re good with rhythm. We know pockets. We hear a collection of sounds and one thing and say, ‘Ahh, I know what could go over this,’ that takes a skill,” he said.
“I’m a rapper. I’m also a producer. I’m also a fucking hot dog. You got some young kid like 13 thinking, ‘Oh I got to make bravado rap, [or] damn I gotta talk about what you think you would have to talk about in a rap song,’ [but] no, you don’t.”
He added: “When I’m flexing on these songs, it’s just about the shit that I really like.”
