Big Sean, Kreayshawn, and Tyler, the Creator on MTV’s ‘When I Was 17′ [Video]

Tyler, the Creator

Before they were nominated for Best New Artist at the VMAs, Big Sean, Kreayshawn, and Tyler, the Creator were regular teens finding their way. The breakout stars were featured on the latest episode of MTV’s “When I Was 17.”

Prior to being signed by Kanye West to G.O.O.D. Music, Detroit MC Big Sean was a shy teen who wore oversized clothing, battle rapped after school, and was dumped by his high school sweetheart because he was too nice.

Odd Future’s Tyler, the Creator was still up to no good, getting caught stealing markers out of a classmate’s backpack, pulling his pants down at a church-organized talent show, and being chased after egging someone’s car.

“Gucci Gucci” was not even recorded when Oakland-raised rapper Kreayshawn was a wild teen getting kicked out of school, painting fire hydrants and washing cement to get her GED, and cleaning up after her crazy cat.

Watch them reflect on good and bad memories from their not-so-distant teen years in the full episode.

    “She litteraly dumped me, ’cause she said ‘you’re just too nice !’”

    If you were 20 years older and both of you weren’t “young” anymore, she would’ve loved the fact that you are nice. But when they’re young, girls apparently like when they are mistreated from time to time. Otherwise that’s just boring for them. Poor Sean, you didn’t know shit about girls, did you ?
