Tyler, The Creator

(Radio.com) Tyler, The Creator credits Grammy-winning producer Pharrell Williams for his success. On the tenth anniversary to the day of the release of Pharell's In My Mind, the rapper delivered a glowing, all-caps essay on his Facebook page.

He goes into detail about the ways that William's work shaped who he is and what he has been able to accomplish. From Williams' music to his other business interests, a young Tyler, The Creator began to study the work of his hero.

In the essay, he writes, "I was an optimistic kid, always daydreaming and setting goals so I felt you were directly speaking to me…10 years later, I am now a man who has found success in many things, running businesses, a young entrepreneur, all because I believed you when you said I could."
