Tyler, the Creator's Wolf has been sitting pretty at the top of the iTunes albums chart since the Odd Future leader sneak-released it Sunday night (March 31). With any luck, the LP's success will help the Los Angeles rapper/producer fulfill his dream of scoring some high-profile production gigs. In a new interview with Billboard, Tyler explained that, more than anything, he'd like to make songs for major music players such as Justin Bieber.

"I've got so many beats and songs, but no one's giving me a chance yet," he said. "I want to take Justin Bieber for a month and just lock him up in a cage where we sit and make music. He's one of the most successful people in the world, but his music could be so much tighter." Tyler revealed that he and Frank Ocean wrote a song for the Biebz's 2012 album Believe that had been rejected. He will rap on Miley Cyrus' Danger Zone, however.

According to Billboard, fans of the Felicia the Goat-starring Mountain Dew commercial directed by Tyler have three more installments to look forward to. The skate-rap crown prince hopes to pick up more directorial gigs in the near future (watch his impressive "IFHY"/"Jamba" music video), leading to a feature film in the next few years, which he'd also write and score. His favorite director is Wes Anderson.

Tyler will visit the Late Show with David Letterman to perform on Thursday, April 4.
