A feud was sparked yesterday when Chris Brown compared Odd Future associate Frank Ocean to James Fauntleroy and Kevin Cossum. Taking this as an "underhanded compliment," Ocean responded with a Twitter message of his own. He apparently felt the comparison to Cossum and Fauntleroy wasn't favorable, though the two acts mentioned have had some success in the music industry.
I fuck wit Frank Ocean! Reminds me of a young James Fauntleroy or Kevin Cossum.
i fucks wit chris brown, reminds me of a young sisqo or ike turner.
This sparked angry replies from Brown, who stated that he was only trying to give Ocean a compliment with those comparisons. Brown then went on to speak about Odd Future as a collective, stating that Tyler, The Creator and the other members worship the devil and saying Tyler and Ocean could have been cast members on a Planet of the Apes film.
@frank_ocean it was a compliment you bitch ass nigga. Everybody claim to be the devil till they meet him.
I was tryna help yo sales nigga. You fuckin clown! You and @fucktyler would be casted great for planet of the apes!
fuck odd future! Make sure y'all smalltime niggas stick yo chess out when u speak to me,
Tyler, The Creator added his own take on the situation with a few messages to Brown.
@chrisbrown What's Wrong Christopher? Amber Rose Stole Your Style Bro Bro?
To All Of OFWGKTA, Stop Mentioning Christopher. He Needs To Go On A Time Out........So How About Them Lakers?
Later, The Game intervened, telling all parties involved that the beef route is not a road to take, offering advice from experience. Tyler then responded by thanking Game and saying he was finished with the back-and-forth banter.
@thegame I'm Done Dude. Thanks.
This isn't the first time Tyler and Chris Brown have beefed via Twitter. The two traded shots quite recently over a comment by Brown about music that promotes death and violence. Odd Future members felt he was sending shots their way and responded to him. That small feud ended with Tyler offering to send Chris Brown beats, however sarcastic the offer may have been. HipHopDX will keep you posted as this story develops.
UPDATE: After a video released earlier today of Chris Brown associates running down Frank Ocean on the highway, Odd Future and Brown have settled their differences, taking to Twitter to announce that they're cool with one another. Game also tweeted that he had spoken with both on the phone, signaling the end of the beef.
This beef shit is stupid, @frank_ocean I respect ya music and you and Odd Future! Ain't beefing wit nobody. Y'all can have that! Love
@chrisbrown Shit Got Too Real On Both Ends. I'm Over It. We're All Over This Shit. Its Stupid As Fuck. Swag It Out.
