Hodgy Beats Calls Tyler, The Creator A Fraud

Earlier this year, Tyler, The Creator made an offhand Twitter comment that Odd Future, the rap crew that was once synonymous with his name, was “no more.” When people freaked out, he seemed surprised that anyone wouldn’t have already known that the group was done. So it seemed like a bit of a conciliatory gesture when Odd Future were booked to perform at Tyler’s Camp Flog Gnaw festival. Instead of bringing Odd Future back together, Camp Flog Gnaw seems to have driven them further apart. During the festival, which went down on Saturday night, tensions apparently erupted between Tyler and Hodgy Beats, another rapper who was once a vital part of Odd Future.

During Camp Flog Gnaw, Hodgy performed with Domo Genesis, Left Brain, and Mike G, the four of them collectively billed as OFWGKTA. During their set, Hodgy apparently said something that pissed Tyler off, though I haven’t been able to find any reports on what, exactly, Tyler said. During his own set, Tyler responded, without saying Hodgy’s name: “Niggas got me fucked up. I put too many niggas on. I helped too many of my motherfucking friends out. And niggas gonna come foul? And you know who the fuck I’m talking about, nigga. And yes, it’s getting real. I love you though.” As Pigeons And Planes points out, you can hear Tyler say what he said at the 39:20 mark of the video below.

On Twitter the next day, Hodgy elaborated, jawing back and forth with friends and claiming that Tyler would be nowhere without Odd Future.

According to Pigeons And Planes, Hodgy also went off on Tyler in the comments of this Instagram post. Here’s what he wrote:

Call me jealous. Just don’t call my phone. Tyler is a fraud. He turned his back on niggas that never crossed him and I’m not just speaking for myself only… Where Earl go? I know he had no part in the carnival… This is a business. Remember that all you see is only brought to your eyes. I know everything that goes on in the background and I respect him enough not to blast that. Just know a young nigga changing faces.

This might be a good moment to remember that Hodgy and Tyler once had some great moments together.

UPDATE: Tyler and Hodgy just posted a jokey, conciliatory Instagram video together, so it looks like all is well between them now.

Fuck you Tyler
