Tyler the Creator nominated for BET Award, declares he has finally won over 'nigger' markets


BET is a channel for African Americans to celebrate their music and culture. They live in the shadows of MTV, but still enjoy celebrating hip hop and r&b culture. Similar to MTV, they have fake awards shows. This year, indie horrorcore buzz rapper Tyler the Creator was nominated for BET Award. He celebrated with a celebratory tweet in which he declared, "I Guess That BET Nom Means That i Actually Got Niggas On My Side hahahaha NIGGA NIGGA NIGGA NIGGA NIGGA NIGGA NIGGA hahaha."

Although Tyler the Creator was very hyped from white sources, and marketed to white tweens as a 'cutting edge mainstream buzz act' [via winning a VMA Award], it seems like he is very much still searching for a place in the hearts of the pure African American artists. Although he continually utilizes the 'n-word', u sorta get the vibe that he is not saying it 'in solidarity with his people', but instead to appeal to white hate markets who actually use the word in a derogatory vibe.

Although Odd Future's gimmick is running dry despite Tyler the Creator's next album being a commercial success despite its eventual poor quality and taste, we will always remember them as 'that one band that made the white indiesphere feel awkward when it came to publishing the word 'nigger'. Last Friday he even pretended to sign a fake artist named Young Nigga to Odd Future's label just 2 play a trick on blogs that are eager 2 cover them.
