There comes a time in every artist’s life when they grow up, move on and hit “artistic maturity.” Tyler, The Creator might have reached that point.

The 25-year-old Odd Future co-founder has been known as @fucktyler to his Twitter followers since he opened his account in July 2010. Not any more.

Tyler has ditched his rather confronting Twitter handle for the more sensible @tylerthecreator, and switched out the awkward profile photo of Bill Cosby with…another awkward photo.  

The rapper didn’t let the occasion pass without appropriate comment. “RIP to @fucktyler,” he tweeted his 3.19 million followers. Of course, the text was in all in cap locks. Some things never change.
