Earl Sweatshirt took to twitter on Wednesday night to announce that he’s changing his rap name soon. Whether he was serious or not remains the only question.

Dishing out a barrage of tweets, Earl, who’s real name is Thebe Neruda Kgositsile, decided to tell the twittersphere that he’s changing his rap name soon, only to end the tweet with a questionable “lol”. While fans were getting “hot” as he described it, Earl then went on to say that he didn't wan't to be a "joke forever" and that “it's not about hating my past I just found a flight name that makes me laugh more than earl sweatshirt does,” which could possibly refer to the recent rumors that Odd Future was done with.

As for what his new name will be, that will be revealed when Earl has new music ready for us. “Just be on standby” as he tells us.

Check out the tweets below and let us know what you think! Will he follow through with the name change?
