Though the biggest night in music was preceded by somber and shocking news, artists still took the time to celebrate their well deserved wins.

On Sunday night, rapper Tyler, the Creator won his first ever Grammy, and his celebratory Tweet was completely on brand.

Born Tyler Gregory Okonma, he was nominated alongside Meek Mill, 21 Savage, Dreamville and YBN Cordae.

Tyler first garnered attention as leader of the hip hop group Odd Future. His first solo album, Goblin debuted in 2011, and was received positively by both fans and critics.

Despite criticism for its violent and vulgar lyrics, Goblin's lead single, "Yonkers" was an instant hit.


In addition to being a talented musician and song writer, Tyler is also known for his comedic acting.

Tyler and his Odd Future crew starred in Adult Swim's Loiter Squad, and he's also had guest roles on shows like Workaholics and Black Dynamite.

He keeps busy.

And Tyler was finally recognized for all of his work by the Recording Academy on Sunday night.

Tyler took home the Best Rap Album for his fifth album, Igor.

He brought his mother along to accept the award.

She couldn't have been more proud.


Tyler's Grammy aspirations started nearly a decade ago.

Back in 2010, Tyler tweeted his hopes of winning a Grammy some day...


But one hater was not having it.


Rude and unnecessary.

Thanks to social media, celebrities get a constant stream of both loving and hurtful comments, and most famous people learn that it's part of the job and either ignore it or avoid social media completely.

But Tyler never forgot @iLLiPin0's diss.

Many years later, Tyler finally had the perfect comeback.


Petty, maybe.

Inspirational, definitely.


People were here for the pettiness of it all.





No one expected this this mini-feud to come full circle.





But most importantly, everyone was proud of his win.




As for Tyler's hater, @iLLiPin0 a.k.a Mark has offered an olive branch.


Congratulations to Tyler, and all of this year's nominees and winners!

Secrets, lies, and betrayal. That is often the foundation of a family. We can go through life thinking our families are perfect and everyone loves one another, that's the training that keeps us from searching for the skeletons in the closets.

But our secrets will always find a way to break free. We may not even be alive to see the outcome, which is anti-climactic, but they will be out of the dark eventually. And once we learn what some loved ones are hiding, life as we know it can be obliterated.

Some secrets may best be buried. So be really sure you want to know everything.

Redditor u/mykirto wanted to hear about all the family drama they've been uncovered, by asking:

What is the most f**ked up thing you found about your family?

There are some things that society just seems to expect adult humans to be able to do, but it looks like not everyone got the memo.

Whether due to never being taught, or a simple inability to pick up the skill no matter how much you practice, there are some things that some folks just can't do.

I was a teenager before I was finally able to properly ride a bicycle, and even now I'm not a stranger to falling off. Let me tell you: flying over the handle bars of a bike hurt a heck of a lot more at 25 than it did at 15.
