Beef between guys in the same crew is always tough. But when they're performing at the same festival, and when the fest is centered around the crew? Yikes.

Performing at the fourth annual Camp Flog Gnaw Carnival over the weekend, Hodgy Beats—whom Miss Info categorizes as having "noticeably detached [from Odd Future] in recent years"—made some inflammatory comments about OFWGKTA leader Tyler, the Creator. While it's not clear what was said onstage, here's part of his grievance, from the comments section on an Instagram post:

“Call me jealous. Just don’t call my phone. Tyler is a fraud. He turned his back on n---as 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 n---a changing faces.”

On Twitter, Hodgy, who has featured on all Tyler's albums until this year's Cherry Bomb, wrote that he "stood up for the ones who are too afraid to say it but they feel that way." He went on to say, "think about who built the name OF together as a unit. Now Think about who took the first initial shit on OF." Back in May, Tyler tweeted that Odd Future was "no more."

During his own Camp Flog Gnaw 2015 set, Tyler also went off:

“N---as got me fucked up. I put too many n---as on. I helped too many of my motherfucking friends out. And n---as gonna come foul? And you know who the fuck I’m talking about n---a. And yes, it’s getting real. I love you though. Now, that awkward moment's over...”

He added more on Twitter:

Nothing left now but to see what the other Odd Future members have to say...and to maybe inject some pos-vibes with the Internet's amazing Late Show with Stephen Colbert performance from last week.
