Moreno Valley, California rapper Fze took issue with a recent tweet from Tyler, The Creator that subtly (or perhaps not-so-subtly) dissed Fze’s hometown.
“WANTED TO PUBLICLY THANK MY MOM FOR NOT MOVING TO MORENO VALLEY OR THE I.E. IN 2004 LIKE A LOT OF PEOPLE FROM LOAS ANGELES DID CAUSE MAN I WOULDVE SUCKED, THANK YOU.”

So, instead of taking direct shots at Tyler, Fze decided to frame his vitriol in a letter to the Odd Future vet’s mother.
“My Public Letter To @Feliciathegoat Mother,” he wrote in the caption. “#TylerPainfulFaceLookinAss. Dont Speak On Nothing This Way!”

Fze explained to HipHopDX, he would’ve let it slide if Tyler hadn’t singled out his hometown.
“If he would of just said IE I prolly wouldn’t of said shit, but he subb’n tho,” he told DX. “Niggas from L.A. moved all over the IE, but he singled out Moreno Valley so I had to [do the track].”
Throughout the roughly two-minute track, Fze flips the script and thanks Tyler’s mother for not moving to Moreno Valley. He then says he knows Tyler has “mental problems” because his father abandoned him and accuses him of pretending to be gay just to sell records but says he “probably is.”
Fze ends the track with a stern warning.
“Mama it ain’t beef/I spoke my piece/And I’m just protecting the streets of Moreno Valley/So he don’t got to hide in the house/Next time he typin’ or talkin’ keep the city out his mouth.”
