Tyler the Creator receives Cultural Influence Award at BET Awards
“I’m not a follower. I’m a leader. And anyone who speaks their mind is always criticized.”
Tyler the Creator is one of the most off-the-wall artists in music, period. With a fashion sense that can’t be tamed, and a musical style that combines multiple genres into one, Tyler has always captured the attention of hip-hop and music industry audiences worldwide.
The rapper, songwriter and producer has come along way from his earlier albums likeGoblin and Wolf. His most recent albums, Call Me If You Get Lost and Igor, have gotten a more jazz and soul infused sound and both managed to hit #1 on the Billboard 200 list.
Call Me If You Get Lost is currently up for the nomination of Album of the Year at the BET Hip Hop Awards where he will also receive a cultural influence award.
