NBA YoungBoy Savagely Disses Lil Durk, DJ Akademiks & India Royale On Twitter

NBA YoungBoy just sent fans into a frenzy online by announcing his new mixtape Richest Opp, dropping on the same day as Lil Durk's new album Almost Healed (this Friday, May 12). However, he didn't stop there. Moreover, he went on a Twitter tirade where he dissed the Chicago MC, DJ Akademiks, Durk's on-and-off-again partner India Royale, and even dissed his fallen friends. All in all, it was quite the combative and inflammatory set of statements, just when we thought they squashed their beef. Akademiks even responded to the call-out shortly after.

"@lildurk you a b***h & yo nasty a** h*e and it's shown," YoungBoy fired off on the social media platform. "And @Akademiks you a pure Fat h*e who mouth gone be the reason you from now on ("invalid") #RichestOpp." In separate tweets, he directed fire at Smurk's deceased colleagues and at his flame. "@lildurk lol you ever realized you only get a buzz when one of your friends die? Think about it scary bum b***h you know I ain't lying ha ha #fact. @indiaroyaltyy tell that p***y b***h he bet not drop he ain't thang 'pretty lady.'"

YoungBoy Goes Nuclear On Twitter

Of course, it's not like Lil Durk was particularly responsive to the rumors that he and YB resolved their differences. In fact, now his answer has a lot more context behind it, as many interpreted it as him simply not speaking on it for clout. Furthermore, a reporter caught him on the street and asked him about DJ Akademiks' claim that they put their issues behind them. "What beef? Who?" he replied calmly to the question. Meanwhile, the media personality's response to YoungBoy dissing him was backhandedly understanding.

"Lol I never thought I see the day my homie diss me cuz his sales low," he reacted. "This rap game is the devil lol. Youngboy I forgive u man. We can get them sales up otherwise... lol. But ok. Capitol Records I blame u for this... y'all pressuring YB to get some sales he doing anything. Get my boy off house arrest tho. YB the last rapper I thought would ever do some s**t for sales. But damn. Go buy his album it drops Friday... He's tryna outsell Lil Durk. I still love him thc. Buy his project." For the latest updates on this beef and more on YoungBoy, stay posted on HNHH.
