Hodgy Beats aired some building resentment with Tyler, the Creator over the weekend at the very public setting of Tyler's own Camp Flog Gnaw Carnival in Los Angeles, but the two seem to have since made up.

After Hodgy had ranted onstage about how fame has changed Tyler -- even calling him a "fraud" and suggesting he'd forgotten about his Odd Future collaborators who helped him build that name when they first broke out five years ago -- the two took to Instagram on Monday (Nov. 16) to show they'd worked things out. 

"Tyler told me to stop being a bitch. So I said alright," said Hodgy in a video posted to Instagram showing him and Tyler messing around, trying hand stands. 

Hodgy's trash talking first came during his appearance at the festival on Saturday, representing the OFWGKTA crew along with Left Brain, Mike G and Domo Genesis. 

Did Tyler, the Creator Just Say Odd Future is Over?

Tyler responded during this own set, saying onstage later that night, "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."

On Sunday, Hodgy continued things on social media. In the comments of one of his Instagram posts, 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 [Sweatshirt] go? I know he had no part in the carnival."

He added: "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."

On Twitter, he retweeted words of encouragement and said he felt good for standing up to Tyler. 

 

Tyler didn't directly address the issue with Hodgy. But he did note on Twitter that he and Earl Sweatshirt are "fine" and responded to a fan's comment, saying he was bummed out by Hodgy's outcry.
