Have you ever felt that way when someone keeps you waiting and you’re about to lose your mind? Tyler, the Creator spends nearly 2 minutes in the video for his upcoming collaboration with A Bathing Ape designer Nigo, “Come On Let’s Go.” pacing and fuming.

A shorts and jacket combo, complete with a fur hat, is worn by the rapper who says, “I told your ass be ready, yeah. You always get excuses, you know I’m top-of-the-line.
