Grammy-winning rapper Kanye West showed some love to Tyler, the Creator and Odd Future over the weekend by appearing at their Hollywood pop-up shop.
Tyler broke the news and provided photo proof of the face-to-face late Sunday (December 23) night.
“Hai My Friend Came By The OF Store Today ( creep face haha)http://instagr.am/p/Tmj9hxnAFo/,” Tyler tweeted December 23rd.

Mr. West is reportedly in the Los Angeles area celebrating Christmas with his girlfriend Kim Kardashian and her family.
“My mom has a really big Christmas party every year on Christmas Eve,” Rob Kardashian told us last night at his Arthur George sock collection launch event in L.A. “We all sleep over at the house, and on Christmas morning we wake up at like 6 a.m. and do presents,” he said. “They all make breakfast, all the girls. We watch basketball. It’s a family day.” Rob says in addition to Kim and Kanye, all of his famous fam, including Kourtney and Khloé, will be in attendance for the big holiday party. “Christmas is home, so everyone will be home and we’ll all hang out together,” he said.

Earlier this year, Tyler admitted Kanye is a fan of the Odd Future movement.
In the past year, Tyler has formed a bond with musical idol Pharrell Williams, Lil Wayne and Kanye West and even interviewed Nas for an XXL magazine cover story. “It’s cool. That sh– is cool. Awkward, but it’s tight. They actually f— with us,” Tyler said of all his new friends. “Lil Wayne is actually a fan, Kanye is actually like a fan. I actually talk to those dudes all the time.” Taco said he and Wayne usually talk about skating, and Earl began to recall a phone conversation between him and Weezy before he was made fun of by the rest of the Wolf Gang. “The moment is gone now, but I just kept saying ‘no’ and it was awkward,” Earl squealed. “We don’t really talk about anything deep,” Tyler said. “I don’t know, I don’t really sit there and say, ‘D*mn, what conversation are me and Wayne having right now?'” (MTV)
Not only co-signed by rappers like Lil Wayne and Yeezy, West Coast hip-hop artist Game previously compared Tyler to mega star Eminem.
“When you’re on a song with Tyler you can say whatever the f*ck you want,” Game said. “I always say what I want but I don’t think I go as far as Tyler…I think he’s like the West Coast Eminem. He don’t give a f*ck. He just rhyme about whatever and it’s like right out of an open book. I like him more than I like most new rappers. He don’t really want anything other than just to rap.” (VIBE)
