Tyler, The Creator performed his song, “Massa,” from his album Call Me If You Get Lost, at the 2021 American Music Awards, Sunday night. Rocking a puffer jacket and shorts, Tyler rapped in front of a snow-covered set featuring a house and trees.
What starts as a more subdued rendition for Tyler explodes in the latter stage as the strobe lights kick in and he raps the second verse of the track. Afterward, the lights go low and Tyler hops on a bike and rides off stage.
