Soulja Boy Says He’d Collab With NBA YoungBoy

Chicago rapper Soulja Boy recently appeared on The Bootleg Kev Podcast, where he discussed his online beef with fellow artist NBA YoungBoy. Bootleg Kev asked the rapper if he'd ever collaborate with YoungBoy, to which he replied saying he would. The artists recently exchanged some heated messages on social media, following NBA YoungBoy and Lil Durk announcing they'd both be releasing music on the date Soulja Boy planned on releasing his album.

Kev asked, "When are you and NBA YoungBoy hanging out? I saw you going in on the internet today.” Soulja Boy responded by calling the conflict "nothing," adding, "The albums just so happened to fall on the same day, so there's going to be some competition." The host went on to ask Soulja Boy if he'd do an album with the rapper. Soulja Boy responded, "Yeah, I'd do a song with him. I ain't tripping." He added, "It ain't nothing like that."

Soulja Boy Squashes The Beef

After the two rappers announced they'd be releasing projects on the same day as Soulja Boy, he went live on Instagram and went off. "You seen me announce my muthaf***in album and the next day you announced your album," he said. Adding that since YoungBoy's on house arrest in Salt Lake City, they can "come to Utah." He continued to go off on the rapper for the rest of the Instagram Live.

Soulja Boy went on during the podcast to say that his issue revolved around Lil Durk's decision to release his album on the same day more than NBA YoungBoy's. Lil Durk has his own problems with YoungBoy, with YoungBoy publicly dissing him along with other musicians on Twitter. He wrote, "@lildurk lol you ever realized you only get a buzz when one of your friends die?" He went on to post an Instagram video celebrating the pushback of the other rapper's album. He said in the video, "You pushed back, you better not ever try it again." YoungBoy also dissed Durk in his new track "F*ck The Industry Pt. 2," along with Drake, J. Cole, and Lil Yachty.
