Hip hop mega star Tyler is riding high at the top of the Billboard Chart with his number one album, Igor and with his single Puppet, alongside Kanye West, that has raised eyebrows with a veteran prog singer. He expressed his surprise when he was contacted by Sony, who wanted permission for the rappers to sample the tune, and thought it was a 'scam'. "The first e-mail we got was from an entertainment lawyer in Los Angeles saying one of their artists wanted to sample Today. “Kanye West is the other composer of this number so it was a very exciting e-mail for us. Mick was pleased to hear that Tyler and Kanye had kept true to his original, especially when it came to the vocals.
