Soulja Boy has snapped on NBA YoungBoy despite the Baton Rouge rapper showing love and appreciation for him.
The fiasco started earlier this week when Draco scolded both YoungBoy and Lil Durk for announcing they would be dropping new albums the same day as him, accusing the young rap stars in a venomous Instagram Live session of “copying” him.
Durk’s Almost Healed and YoungBoy’s Richest Opp were initially set to arrive on Friday (May 12), the same day as Soulja’s new project The Biggest Opp.
Durkio ultimately ended up pushing his release date back to May 26, and while YoungBoy did drop off his project as scheduled, he took a moment to commemorate the “Crank That” hitmaker for his contribution to music, and said he couldn’t wait to shake his hand.
“That’s a fact,” YoungBoy tweeted in response to Soulja Boy’s Instagram Live rant in which he said neither Durkio or the Top rapper could ever make a “Crank That.” “I swear it’s gone be nice to meet you too.”
“N-gga this ain’t no meet and greet,” Soulja Boy retorted soon after.
In Soulja Boy’s aforementioned rant, he also challenged Durk and YoungBoy to stop sneak dissing each other on tracks and resolve their long-running feud once and for all.
“Lil Durk, you scary as fuck. If you gon’ fight YoungBoy, gon’ fight him, n-gga,” he said. “Fuck wrong with you, boy? I know you seen me announce my album, n-gga … And the next day you gon’ hop on here talking ’bout you ‘Almost Healed.’ Man, you almost lame, n-gga.
“Is y’all n-ggas gon’ scrap or what y’all gonna do? All this back-and-forth sneak dissing shit, go on with that shit. Y’all n-ggas painting y’all nails, doing all type of weird shit. Stop playing with me, n-gga.”
Although Soulja Boy has been very outspoken about his loathing for NBA YoungBoy and his fans, it was Lil Durk who received a beating at the end of his rant.
“Lil Durk, you lame, n-gga. Stop copying, copycat-ass n-gga,” YoungBoy said. “You could’ve dropped your shit next month, bitch. You could’ve dropped your shit next week. All you scary-ass copycat-ass n-ggas, I’m tired of y’all fuck n-ggas watching me.”
Despite Akademiks having claimed last week that NBA YoungBoy and Durk had resolved their years-long beef, the rivals both came out and disputed this claim, with YoungBoy attacking Durkio on social media earlier this week.
“@lildurk you a bitch & yo nasty ass hoe and it’s shown,” YoungBoy tweeted in part. “And @Akademiks you a pure Fat hoe who mouth gone be the reason. you from now on (‘invalid’) #RichestOpp.”
He continued: “@lildurk lol you ever realized you only get a buzz when one of your friends die. Think about it scary bum bitch you know I ain’t lying ha ha #fact.”
YoungBoy then called out Durkio once again after the Chicago rapper pushed back the release date of his Almost Healed project.
“It’s been up you a bitch n-gga stay down ‘You bet not drop,’” he wrote on Twitter, before adding: “Bitch you ain’t never gone troll of a gangster again.”
Soulja Boy then chimed in and thanked Lil Durk for delaying his album.
“Shoutout Durk for pushing his album back. Real N-gga,” he wrote to Twitter.
