In an interview with Fast Company, Tyler, The Creator suggested he might be changing his name.

According to Tyler, he came up with the moniker when he was 13 and on MySpace and has now outgrown it.

“I started using that one more and random people from Kentucky would be, like, ‘Cool beats, bro!’ And so I just kept the Tyler, The Creator thing going and, you know, I’m 17 in high school, around LA, the name’s getting around, and I kind of just kept it as my stage name,” he said.

He conceded "it’s really dumb but it stuck with me so it just works."

“But my full name, Tyler Okonma, in all caps just looks really cool. So you might see more of that, I don’t know, I’m getting older and I think when people get older they start to realize sh*t, you just start changing,” he continued.

While Tyler has been using that name for his video credits, he jumped on Twitter late last night to clarify The Creator is going nowhere.



“I NEVER SAID I WAS CHANGING MY NAME, ARE YOU STUPID? YES.” he typed, “WILL EMBRACE MY LAST NAME MORE, LESS WOLF HALEY, NEVER SAID I WAS GONNA CHANGE MY STAGE NAME, WHAT YO EARS ON BRO?”

Touchy, touchy.
