Tyler the Creator Wins Best New Artist at 2011 MTV VMAs
The 'Yonkers' creator walked onstage with his rap crew, after his mother showed added enthusiasm by jumping in the air and yelling out congratulations for her son. From Foster the People with 'Pumped Up Kicks,' Wiz Khalifa for 'Black and Yellow,' Big Sean featuring Chris Brown in 'My Last' and Kreayshawn for 'Gucci Gucci,' Tyler snagged one of the most coveted nods of the night.
Though he said he didn't write an acceptance speech, the California native shared his excitement for actually attending the show itself as he couldn't believe he was in attendance. He left the stage with some motivating words, letting kids tuned in know that they could someday stand in his position if they followed their dreams.
