Tyler, The Creator Cries Watching N.E.R.D Play 'Rock Star'

We feel you.

We'd cry too if we were watching a reunited N.E.R.D lineup playing one of their greatest tracks, 'Rock Star'. Tyler, The Creator cried tears of total joy, watching Pharrell, Chad Hugo and Shay Haley perform at Odd Future's annual Camp Flog Gnaw over the weekend. Think of it — two of his biggest influences reunite at his festival to play for him — it's too much for the Odd Future kid. Hence, he clutches his face and cries, still singing along.

Rick Ross, ScHoolboy Q, Mac Miller and Freddie Gibbs also played at the festival's latest instalment, but for a guy with an unhealthily obsession with In Search Of…  this moment would have been historic.

Speaking of hella cute things, The Fader's cover story on Tyler has just been published on online, and it's full of insightful, lovely interactions between him and his mum. She sounds like a legend and he thinks so too, saying "Where the f*ck do you think I get it from?" he asks. "That's my n***a. There's still respect there. I'm her son — it's nothing disrespectful. She lets me breathe. She doesn't understand me, but she understands that she doesn't understand me."
