Gone are the days where Odd Future were a bunch of young kids known by the masses only for their subversive mindsets. The man known as @f*cktyler on Twitter who used to rap lyrics like “kill people, burn sh*t, f*ck school” has grown up, and his art, aesthetic and musicianship has aptly matured along with him. To accompany this said growth, the Odd Future honcho has decided to switch up the expletive-containing handle, which he had used since joining twitter in July 2010, with a much more standardized one — @tylerthecreator. He addressed the change via Twitter; find it below.
RIP FUCKTYLER, WILL MISS YOU, ITS BEEN GREAT, BUT NOW ITS TIME FOR ME TO……IDK WHAT EXACTLY, BUT ITS TIME, IM OK WITH THAT. LOVE YOU.
