"I first want to thank God, my mom, Stormi, all the amazing fans out there. I love y'all so much. Couldn't do it without y'all. To my label Cactus Jack, I love y'all so much," said Scott onstage.

"Before I go," he continued, "I just want to tell y'all, love is the biggest thing that we can ever hold. Spread love and everything will be okay."

Jenner, 24, was not in attendance for the awards show in New York City, though she shared a photo of Scott winning the award on her Instagram Story to congratulate them. Jenner also announced Monday that she won't attend the 2021 Met Gala Monday evening either.

In a new CR Men cover story, Scott opened up about his and Jenner's parenting style with their daughter. The pair have a "natural" approach, Scott said.

"She's so fire because she goes to sleep now," he shared of Stormi. "We try to do a more natural vibe [with parenting], like more self-discipline. Like, 'Okay, you know you got to go to bed at 9, are you going to stay up till 11 or are you going to go to sleep now?' And it's so cool [to hear her say], 'I'm going to sleep ya'll!' "

Scott also opened up about his upcoming album titled Utopia, as well as what he views is society's current shortcomings.

"Medicine, nursing, being a better person, talking, language, communication — you know, a utopian state. That's what my album is about," he says. "You think utopia is a society where everything is good: health, buildings, architecture. Nah. It's just about proper lines of communication. Because that's the dystopian s--- we're in right now. It's all hate, hate, hate, and all of that is drawn from what? Miscommunication, non-communication, non-understandable communication, ignorance to communication."
