In a fiery social media feud, rapper Soulja Boy recently took aim at fellow Atlanta natives Metro Boomin and 21 Savage. The heated exchange centered around an old tweet from Metro Boomin that resurfaced, leading to a war of words and threats.

The tweet that started it all

Back in 2012, when Twitter was still buzzing, Metro Boomin (then known as Young Metro) posted a tweet that read:

"My phone rings to come to the studio with Jeezy. Yours rings to send Soulja Boy a pack of beats. Sit down."

The tweet was a subtle dig at Soulja Boy’s career and musical contributions.

Soulja Boy fires back

Upon discovering the decade-old tweet, Soulja Boy wasted no time in responding. In a profanity-laced Instagram Live session, he unleashed a barrage of insults directed at Metro Boomin. Soulja Boy reminded everyone of his own accomplishments, including having a number-one hit in 2007 when he was just 17 years old. He taunted Metro Boomin, saying,

"You were still in elementary school. You were in middle school, boy."

21 Savage steps in

Enter 21 Savage, who has a longstanding relationship with Metro Boomin. When Soulja Boy challenged Metro to delete the tweet, 21 Savage defended his collaborator. He questioned Soulja Boy’s threats, asking, “Or what?” The tension escalated as both artists exchanged fiery words on social media.

Soulja Boy’s retaliation

Not one to back down, Soulja Boy continued his assault. He mocked 21 Savage for being from the UK and questioned why 21 Savage hadn’t defended Drake during a recent viral beef. Soulja Boy even shared old direct messages from Metro Boomin, where the producer had expressed interest in working together.

The boxing challenge

In a final twist, Soulja Boy challenged both Metro Boomin and 21 Savage to a boxing match. His message was clear:

" I’ll beat the f*** out of you."

As of now, neither Metro nor 21 Savage has responded to the challenge.

The clash between Soulja Boy, Metro Boomin, and 21 Savage serves as a reminder that old tweets can resurface and ignite new conflicts. Whether this feud will escalate further remains to be seen, but it’s clear that social media remains a battleground for artists to settle their differences.
