Tyler the Creator was a guest on Thursday night’s episode of Jimmy Kimmel Live, but he wasn’t there to perform. Rather the Odd Future MC sat down for a brief, but very funny interview. The two discussed a variety of topics, including the origin of Tyler the Creator’s name (credit MySpace), Tyler’s early years working at Starbucks (and how he still hates his old boss Cindy), and his Golf Media App. Replay the highlights below.


Tyler is still riding high from the release of his surprise new LP, Cherry Bomb. In support, he’ll appear at a number of festivals this summer, including Lollapalooza, Osheaga, and Riot Fest Toronto.
