With YouTube’s recent addition of M.I.A., Earl Sweatshirt and Tyler the Creator to its music awards lineup on Nov. 3, hip-hop fans are clearly excited that the video site has added more than just the average pop acts to the bill. However, the Odd Future leader clearly thinks otherwise.

Tyler took to Twitter to share his frustration, in all caps. “YOUTUBE AWARDS COULDVE F—ING HAD NOMINATIONS ON COOL CREATIVE VIDEOS SHIT BUT NOOOO AGAIN ITS THE MOST TEENY BOPPER POP S—. YOU ARE BUTT…,” the rapper tweeted.

He continued venting, accusing other artists of not being the source of their respective video’s creativity. “WHY NOT GIVE AWARDS TO JUST DIRECTORS, THESE F—ING WEAK ASS ARTIST DONT COME UP WITH THESE SHOTS OR SIT IN COLORING F— THEM THEY SUCK…,” the ‘Wolf’ creator wrote.

One Direction, Selena Gomez, Rihanna, Miley Cyrus, Macklemore are also on the bill and probably make up the “teenybopper s—” he’s referring to.

But even though we’re not surprised by Tyler’s unabashed honesty and candidness, it is surprising that M.I.A. didn’t jump to comment first.There’s still time before the show so who knows what can happen.

The YouTube Music Awards will take place live on Sun., Nov. 3 at Pier 36 in New York City.
