Lil Durk Responds YoungBoy Twitter Diss

After NBA YoungBoy fired off some vicious disses at Lil Durk and his partner India Royale, many wondered how the Chicago MC would respond. Moreover, YB announced his next mixtape Richest Pop would drop the same day as Durk's next album Almost Healed. In the process, he dragged the couple through the mud, disrespected his dead friends, and trashed DJ Akademiks for reporting that their beef was over. However, Durk's response was quite simple on Twitter, and it was one that pointed to him not letting this get under his skin or distracting him from his upcoming release or his success.

"Idk nun I ain't seen nun," Lil Durk wrote on Twitter shortly after the Baton Rouge MC's attacks. Then, he posted a picture of his name as a trending Twitter topic. "Trending everyday," he added with a black heart emoji. Furthermore, it seems like YoungBoy might have just given Smurk exactly what he wanted without asking: more buzz and promotion for his own release. Still, that didn't make his words any less harsh online, and hope that they reconciled vanished as quickly as it came.

"@lildurk you a b***h & yo nasty a** h*e and it’s shown,” YB wrote addressing Lil Durk on Twitter. “And @Akademiks you a pure Fat h*e who mouth gone be the reason you from now on (“invalid”) #RichestOpp.” That wasn't the end, though, as he caught more people in the crossfire in subsequent messages. “@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."

Meanwhile, India Royale doesn't seem to have responded as of writing this article, but Akademiks sure did. "Lol I never thought I see the day my homie diss me cuz his sales low,” he quote-tweeted YoungBoy's post. “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." We'll see if this is all for show or just the latest in their storied beef. For more updates on this story and the latest from Lil Durk, return to HNHH.
