Tyler, The Creator won best new artist last night, I saw people do nothing but hate on twitter. A lot of people complained that he cussed during his whole acceptance speech and that he didn’t deserve that award. First of all, Lady Gaga was cussing the whole entire night nobody wasn’t complaining about that but as soon as Tyler does it “he needs to grow up?” Are you kidding me?
Second, the best new artist category is based off of VOTES. Wiz Khalifa had the anthem of the year with Black and Yellow. Big Sean who is also another dope rapper had some awesome buzz last year with a new album. I really didn’t see them promote people to vote for them as much. I only saw Kreayshawn and Tyler doing that. Tyler and Kreayshawn both had ads.
In the end Tyler won, just deal with it STOP hating. Y’all can’t congratulate a YOUNG artist that produces and creates his OWN art? I know Odd Future isn’t for everybody and as a fan I don’t always agree with things that they say or do but at least give props where its due.
Everybody in the twitter world (even if your not a fan of Odd Future) knows that Tyler is known for using a lot of profanity in his tweets (FUCK or FAGGOT), controversial lyrics, and twitter beefs with music bloggers and other notable music artist. Did you guys really think that he was going to keep that acceptance speech 100% clean? Um… HELL NO!
As an older Odd Future fan (24y.o.) I’m annoyed with people who bash me for supporting these niggas. “I can’t believe you support those devil worshipers” or “I don’t see why you listen to those Odd Future niggas they diss Jesus”. most of the members in the group are atheists, which means they don’t believe in a religion. Many people think that Odd Future are devil worshipers because of all of the satanic imagery in their music and clothes that they wear. In my opinion, I think that they ONLY do it to piss off their haters. Odd Future haters or critics are the people who only pay attention to a controversial phrase or word. They don’t pay attention or analyze their lyrical content as a whole. Odd Future uses that shit as a tool to piss people off by being rebellious. I see it like this “We’re Odd Future, we’re young niggas doing our OWN thing, hate us or love us we don’t give a damn, we’re setting our own trends doing things our way”.
Real recognize real, I don’t let Odd Future’s music or their religious beliefs define who I am. Jesus knows my heart that’s all that matters.
