While it seemed that losing the Video of the Year award was a shame for Tyler, the Creator, the bigger award was Best New Artist, beating out favorite Wiz Khalifa.
Previous winners of this award have gone on to do big things including Lady Gaga, 50 Cent, and Eminem. Considering that he has often been compared to the reigning king of hip hop Eminem before, this may be an omen of where his career may go. Although these are the MTV Video Music Awards, and we all know that the television station lost its roots with real music long ago, these awards are still an integral part to musical careers and have the potential to make and break these performer’s reputations. Now its time to see what is next for Odd Future and Tyler, the Creator. Will he carry on the legacy of this award and be the next musical powerhouse to take us all by storm. He is already featured on Game’s new album and a new single from Pusha T.
