After a recent interview with Tyler, the Creator Following the conclusion, fans and some media outlets began to speculate whether the rapper might be considering changing his stage name. Now, Tyler is setting records continuously.
In a string of tweets that have since been deleted, Tyler made people think he would change his stage name to Tyler Okonma, his birth name. “I never said I was changing my name, are you in doubt? YES,” he wrote early Thursday morning (December 30). “WILL FIX MY LAST NAME, LESS HALEY ERROR [referring to his alter ego], NEVER SAY I HAVE CHANGED MY STAGE NAME, ANY EARS ON BRO DO YOU HAVE? ”
The confusion arose after a recent interview Okonma did with Fast company, in which the rapper talked about the MySpace origin story of his stage name. In the interview, Tyler called his stage name “stupid” and talked about the aesthetic of using his birth name for creative projects. “My full name, Tyler Okonma, all caps looks great,” he said. “So you can see more than that. I do not know. I’m getting older, and I think as people get older, they start to realize that, you’re just starting to change. ”
When a fan asked Tyler about the context surrounding his tweets, the rapper replied, filling in what he was seeing. “INTERVIEWER ASKED MY STAGE NAME, I EXPLAINED HOW I got it, I’m FUN ABOUT IT’S DUMB BUT KEYWORDS IT,” he wrote. “TO TALKED ABOUT MY FINAL NAME HOW I WANT TO FIND IT NOW THAT I AM BETTER AND HAVE A NEW VIEW ABOUT IT. THE PAGES INSTANTLY SAY IT. WRONG.”
Before deleting his tweet, Tyler noted that he wasn’t really angry about the mistake, despite the full capitalization of the text. “ALL FLOWERS MAKE YOU THINK HUMANS ARE uglier or worse, WANT IT OFF THAT EMOTIONS IS ONLY ON GROWTH.”
After the release of the critically acclaimed album Call me if you get lost in 2021, which top Billboard 200 in July, Tyler, the Creator is currently preparing for 2022 tour of North America. Performances begin in San Diego on February 10, and the tour ends with a 34-day run on April 8 in Seattle.
