The dissent within the seemingly invincible Odd Future crew has apparently been bubbling for a while. During the crew’s annual Camp Flog Gnaw Carnival concert, Hodgy Beats took to the stage to air out his grievances with Tyler, The Creator and called him a fraud on Instagram.
Although what Hodgy actually said at the Carnival can’t be determined in full, a look at his Twitter account seems to sum up the sentiment of the evening with fans chiming in. Of course, there were some who took swipes at the former MellowHype band member.
“[Y]ou spoke some real sh*t tonight man, straight up this is why I f*ck with you heavy as a person HB you a real honest human,” tweeted one fan, which Hodgy retweeted.
However, one fan tweeted that Hodgy was essentially telling fans not to idolize anyone on the stage the evening of the Carnival and how he’s now a CEO of his own brand. One fan responded and said he didn’t even actually mention Tyler by name during the rant. However, Hodgy got more specific as time went on.
“Call me jealous. Just don’t call my phone. Tyler is a fraud. He turned his back on n*ggas 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,” said Hodgy in a now-deleted Instagram comment.
“[T]hink about who built the name OF together as a unit. Now Think about who took the first initial sh*t on OF,” wrote Hodgy on Twitter. A fan responded asking where Hodgy would be without Tyler, to which he responded, “If It wasn’t for OF, where would Tyler be?”
Tyler also responded to the situation via social media saying, ““N*ggas got me fucked up. I put too many n*ggas on. I helped too many of my motherf*cking friends out. And n*ggas gonna come foul? And you know who the f*ck I’m talking about n*gga. And yes, it’s getting real. I love you though.”
No further words have been exchanged over the matter, but it does seem like it’s an end of an era for OFWGKTA.
