After getting put on blast by one-time Flipmode Squad member Rah Digga last week, Odd Future's Tyler, the Creator has revealed a reconciliation took place over the weekend.
Although brief with his words, Tyler revealed taking a photo alongside Digga at this weekend's Paid Dues Festival in California.
"@murs thanks so f*cking much dude ahhhhhhjh i seen dipset and took a photo with rah digga ahhh!," he tweeted April 8th.

Digga also confirmed the hype and said they were on good terms.
"@deshaung The facts are...he clowned me b4...I clowned back...I'm stage right DOLO waitin to see them perform its NUTHIN #PAIDDUES2012"
"Awwww look at lil Ty-Ty and Auntie Digga #PAIDDUES2012 RT @fucktyler: AND I TOOK A PHOTO WITH RAH DIGGA AYYYE http://lockerz.com/s/199741686" (Rah Digga's Twitter)
Last week, the rap veteran went at Tyler on a track titled "N*gga In Me."
Tyler, the Creator caught the wrath of Rah Digga by saying Happy Father's Day to her over and over again on Twitter. So she took it another level with thes vitriolic lines: "I was trying to support this young black man / It's too bad, you probably lost your only black fan," she snarls. "Take it any further, and you might catch a backhand, b*tch." (International Business Times)
She also dished out a statement to defend the choice words and direct disses.
In 1999, Rah Digga released Dirty Harriet, one of the best hip hop records in a competitive year. Thirteen years later, a few younger artists have been dropping her name (and MC Lyte's), but not with the respect typically given to artists with their track records. As a result, on her latest track, "The N*gga in Me," Rah Digga calls out both Fat Trel and Tyler, The Creator for their off-color remarks. In an accompanying statement, she says, "I wish em all the best, they just need to understand who is off limits. MC Lyte is off limits. Rah Digga is off limits. Respect those who kept hip hop raw so that we could still have a culture or get a first hand lesson in a lyrical a** whoopin." (The FADER)
