In a recent interview with Fast Company, Tyler, The Creator reflected on his relationship with the late Virgil Abloh, spoke about his Golf le Fleur collection, and also discussed using his full name Tyler Okonma more.

Speaking about the stage name, he said, "My stage name was from, I made a MySpace page when I was 13. I had three of them, one was regular for friends, another one was for something else, and then the third one was just ideas. I would put drawings and photos I would take, and I would upload beats on there."

"But my full name, Tyler Okonma, in all caps just looks really cool," he added. "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 realise shit, you just start changing."

After multiple reports that Tyler, The Creator is considering changing his stage name, Tyler, The Creator responded to the stories on Twitter, writing, "I NEVER SAID I WAS CHANGING MY NAME, ARE YOU STUPID? YES."

In another tweet he wrote, "WILL EMBRACE MY LAST NAME MORE, LESS WOLF HALEY, NEVER SAID I WAS GONNA CHANGE MY STAGE NAME, WHAT YO EARS ON BRO?"

Responding to a follower asking for context about the situation, Tyler, The Creator added, "INTERVIEWER ASKED ABOUT MY STAGE NAME, I EXPLAINED HOW I GOT IT, I JOKED ABOUT IT BEING DUMB BUT KEPT IT. TALKED ABOUT MY AFRICAN LAST NAME HOW I WANT TO EMBRACE IT NOW THAT IM OLDER AND HAVE A NEW VIEW ON IT. SITES SAYS IM CHANGING IT. FALSE. FROM THE SOURCE IN CASE U BELIEVED."

When speaking about Virgil Abloh in the same interview, Tyler, The Creator revealed he intended to show Abloh his Golf le Fleur collection on the week of his death.
