Tyler, the Creator wasn’t on the 2022 Grammys, so he could not settle for his award for Finest Rap Album in individual. However he did what another Millennial would do and took to Instagram to give his thanks over a livestream.
The rapper obtained the accolade for his sixth studio album Name Me If You Get Misplaced. The Grammy Awards did not air the Finest Rap Album class throughout the principle telecast, and Tyler is at the moment on tour (therefore why he could not be on the ceremony), however that did not cease him from taking issues in his personal palms and hopping on Instagram Stay to offer an impromptu acceptance speech that, fortunately, did not have to stick to CBS censors.
Tyler beat out Kanye West, Drake, J. Cole, and Nas for the consideration of Finest Rap Album.
Tyler embodied the ethos of Name Me If You Get Misplaced by going stay in entrance of a grassy discipline with bikes laying within the background. “First off, I am hyped,” started Tyler. “Thanks to DJ Drama you’re so vital to rap music. Thanks to my buddies for being my cheerleaders. Thanks to my complete crew, the entire squad.”
The Live briefly cut out several times, but at least he had the freedom to cuss and didn’t have to worry about being played off stage.
In true Tyler fashion, he also addressed the haters. “I know you’re seething and angry and ‘agh no one listens to that album.’ These arena tours that are selling out says different,” said Tyler. “If you put that much energy into something maybe everyone would be proud of you too.”
He ended his speech by looking to the future. “We’ll see what the fuck is next. I do not know what the fuck I’ma do. Thank y’all. Big love.”
