Tyler, The Creator and Flying Lotus both recently criticized the upcoming YouTube Music Awards which are scheduled to take place November 3.

Tyler disagreed with the nominations, saying he felt they were soley based on views and not the creativity of the actual video content. However, he was glad to discover Toro y Moi was nominated for the "Innovation of the Year" award for his music video "Say That." Flying Lotus voiced a similar concern, comparing their nominations to the VMAs. "If it's all about hits sure I get it but let's be fair. YouTube award nominations clearly don't care about cutting edge/innovation," he says.

Tyler, The Creator is currently scheduled to perform at the awards show, as well as fellow Odd Future member Earl Sweatshirt. You can read what Tyler and Flying Lotus had to say below:
