Tyler, the Creator Disses His Fellow Record Artists

Tyler, the Creator Disses His Fellow Record Artists

Except for Adele and Wiz Khalifa.

Published July 23, 2011

Don't expect Odd Future frontman Tyler, the Creator to be a gracious loser. The plain-speaking rapper  didn't hold back when asked about his feelings on his 2011 MTV VMA Video of the Year nomination for his clip "Yonkers": "I'm really excited, shout out to Ron Artest. If I lose to any of those wackass videos, I'm gonna be mad because they all suck—except for Adele's," he said.

Tyler, who also directed the video for "Yonkers," has nicer words for his fellow Best New Artist nominee Wiz Khalifa. "Wiz is a really good dude and I've been a fan of his music," he says. "Wiz is awesome, I've been listening to him since '08."

At least now he'll have someone to sit with at the show.
