Soulja Boy and Lil Yachty's beef began as a public argument in which they both claimed to be closer to reality star India Love than the other. At the time, Lil Yachty implied that he and India were romantically involved, but in the fallout from her leaked sex tape, he tweeted, "That's not my girl y'all stop tagging me please." Soulja took note, and took the opportunity to briefly rail against Lil Boat.

"First yachty say delete the pic of me and india its his girlfriend now her tape leaked he say its not his girl and stop taggin him SMH!" he wrote in a pair of since-deleted tweets. "Wow he started all that beef and drama just to say she not his girl. NIGGA STICK BY YOUR CHICK LMAO DON'T BE EMBARASSED NOW. lmao wtf."

Soulja followed these tweets with words of Instagram encouragement for India Love. "Keep your head up love. No weapon formed against you shall prosper. Bless up 🙏🏾🙌🏾.."

Bless up.
