After a jubilant hug from his mother, Tyler rushed the stage to nab his statue from presenters Taylor Lautner and Selena Gomez. Joined by his group, Odd Future, the MC offered an excited, yet expletive-laden acceptance speech.

“Yo, I’m excited as f— right now, yo,” he said. “I wanted this sh– since I was nine. I’m about to cry. This is for my little brother Earl [Sweatshirt]. He’s not here right now. I really can’t believe I’m here right now. I didn’t write a thank you speech. I don’t know. F—. To all the kids watching, you can do this sh–. Thank you.”

Tyler directed the black-and-white video — from his second solo album, Goblin — using the name Wolf Haley.
