Soulja Boy is firing shots at Nigerian artist Wizkid over a tweet from 2010. Soulja, who has always kept his name alive through various beefs, called out Wizkid over the tweet on Sunday.

“I swear, Soulja Boy is wack! Jeeeezzzzz!, the post from July 11, 2010 read. There’s no explanation for how the tweet came to Soulja Boy’s attention, but the Atlanta rapper has never been one to tolerate disrespect.

“Ya mama wack. Shut ya b**ch a** up,” Soulja replied on July 10. Soulja Boy’s response to Wizkid has garnered over 8,000 retweets and almost 13,000 likes. Fans have chimed in on the topic over social media.

“I agree with you Soulja Boy,” tweeted one fan. The tweet ended up being liked by Soulja himself. Later on Sunday, the “Kiss Me Thru The Phone” artist went on Instagram Live to further address the situation.

“I just seen this sh*t right now n***a, you feel me?”, he said. I don’t understand how n***as can say, ‘Soulja Boy wack, Soulja Boy this, Soulja Boy that.’ But as soon as I say, ‘You’s a b*tch, ya mama,’ then it’s, ‘Oh no he’s clout chasing. Oh no he crazy. Oh no, why he say that?.'”

A Deeper Look Into The Wizkid Tweet

At the time of the tweet, Wizkid was only 19 years and had released singles from his debut album Superstar, which dropped in 2011. Meanwhile, Soulja was the same age and had already released two albums with classic hits such as “Kiss Me Thru The Phone” and “Turn My Swag On.”

As mentioned, however, Soulja Boy is no stranger to beef. He’s had conflicts with numerous artists in the industry throughout his career. Chris Brown, Lil Yachty and Bow Wow are some of the more notable examples.

In a recent interview, A$AP Rocky claimed that rap music hasn’t been as “mature” since Soulja Boy’s debut.

“Rap is in its adolescence and it’s been stuck here since Soulja Boy,” he said to Interview Magazine. “Before, everybody looked 35 and up. When Lil Wayne and Jay-Z and T.I and Jeezy and [Rick} Ross was on, they looked old. Like, we had Lil Bow Wow and that was it.”
