Tyler, The Creator Talks The YTMA's & Everything Else With Arsenio Hall

Lenny Kravitz, Grace Jones, Lauryn Hill, Lion Babe, Thundercat, SZA & More Rock The Afropunk Festival 2015 in Brooklyn, NY.

Tyler, The Creator puts his feet up and gets comfy on the sofa during a chat with Arsenio Hall that touched on his beef with the YouTube Music Awards and pretty much anything else he could fit in. The Odd Future frontman detailed his feelings about where the web giant failed, noting that YouTube had a chance to step outside the box of the mainstream awards show format and instead fell into the trap that has made the MTV VMA's and other programs come off as what he considers stale and unimaginative. Hopefully his impassioned argument is enough to earn him a spot on next year's planning committee. Moving onto other topics, Tyler compliments the show's furniture, talks derogatory terms, professes his love for Quincy Jones and invites the world to his carnival this weekend. Check the footage below to watch Tyler chop it up with Arsenio Hall. Purchase Tyler's Wolf LP via iTunes.
