Tyler, the Creator First African To Win Best New Artist VMA?

While you were geeked out over that other VMA newshalf-Nigerian Odd Future leader Tyler, the Creator nabbed a Moonman for Best New Artist. The MC dropped a fittingly less-than-coherent, F-bomb-laced acceptance speech, and followed up with a Prince-level weird backstage interview. He’s probably the first of the diaspora to score the win.

Golf Wang.

  1. Yes, cray isn’t it? Also, Earl Sweatshirt is East African, I believe. But Tyler strikes me as one of those halfricans that’s super indifferent about his heritage.
