Tyga and Soulja Boy are the latest rappers to have beef with each other, and it all has to do with career comebacks and Blac Chyna. Tyga has a 6-year-old son with Chyna, King Cairo Stevenson, and Soulja dated Chyna for about two weeks earlier this month.
The back-and-forth between the rapper’s began in early January when Soulja claimed to have had the biggest comeback since he recently dropped his own game console and signed a deal with Warner/Chappell Music.
But some on social media said Tyga actually had the biggest comeback because after being in record label limbo with YMCMB and known mostly for dating Kylie Jenner, he landed a smash with the single “Taste,” which is his biggest hit since 2011’s “Rack City.”
In fact, in a Jan. 16 Instagram post, Tyga responded to Soulja’s claims of having the biggest comeback by posting “Taste’s” streaming numbers.
“Who had the biggest comeback?” wrote the Cali rapper back then.
Now fast-forward to Sunday, Feb. 24 and Soulja continued the beef after news surfaced that Tyga got dragged out of Floyd Mayweather’s birthday party by a bouncer. The “Crank That” rapper posted a still of the incident and included laughing emojis.
On the same day, Soulja taunted Tyga for being with Chyna for a short period.
“I f–ked yo baby mama and played Fortnite with yo son,” wrote Soulja in a now deleted tweet. He also wrote: “Me and Blac Chyna could neva work she like n—az like Tyga. Lol.”
Then on Monday (Feb. 25) Tyga stopped by Los Angeles’ Power 106 radio station, and mentioned Soulja during a freestyle.
“7 million records, 9 months, where’s Soulja at?” Tyga rapped. “Running ’round saying that you made me, why you say that?”
Folks online then discussed the beef and said Tyga is the victor so far because of the freestyle.
“Tyga got bars where’s big Draco bars at?” someone wrote, using one of Soulja’s monikers.
“First time I heard tyga actually have real bars. Rappers mostly dont rap until beef occurs,” a second person commented.
At this time, Soulja hasn’t responded to the “Taste” rapper.
