The 2017 Apple Event took place earlier today at the new Steve Jobs Theater in San Francisco, and hip-hop actually played a big role in the new announcements. While unveiling the new iPhone 8 model, as well as the new Apple Watch features, Tyler, The Creator and Wale were shown some love.
While Keynote speakers shared details on the new iPhone 8, as well as the advanced new iPhone X, the projector displayed a model phone on the screen that pulled up Tyler’s “Enjoy Right Now, Today” track playing in Apple Music. The song comes straight off of the Odd Future co-founder‘s latest Flower Boy album.
Also during the major event at Apple, Wale popped up on the big screen when his song, “My Love” was displayed in an Apple Music playlist on one of the Apple Watch models. The popular track from the D.C. native stems from his previously released Shine album that dropped earlier this year.
While Tyler and Wale were earning a spotlight at today’s Apple event, many are itching for more details on the new products that are being released by the company in the next few months. Find out more information on what went down at the 2017 Apple Event here.
See how Tyler and Wale were incorporated into the 2017 Apple Keynotes in the photos below.
