Soulja Boy, the self-proclaimed “Big Draco,” is back in the headlines, and this time, he’s not holding back. The rapper has reignited a feud with fellow Atlanta natives 21 Savage and Metro Boomin, all thanks to an old tweet that resurfaced recently.

The tweet that started it all

The drama began over a decade-old tweet from Metro Boomin, the renowned producer behind hits like “Bad and Boujee” and “Jumpman.” In 2012, Metro took a jab at Soulja Boy, comparing their studio experiences. The tweet read:

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

Soulja Boy, never one to shy away from controversy, caught wind of the tweet and wasted no time firing back. In a profanity-laced Instagram Live session, he taunted Metro:

"You were lit about going to the studio with Jeezy? Stop playing with me. I had a number one hit in 2007 when I was 17, f**k n-gga. You were still in elementary school. You were in middle school, boy."

But the feud didn’t stop there. Soulja Boy continued to throw shade, questioning Metro’s excitement about working with Jeezy.

"I was making beats for Gucci! he declared. I don’t give a f**k about no Jeezy, n-gga. I was in the studio with Guwop at 18."

21 Savage steps in

Enter 21 Savage, another Atlanta rapper and longtime collaborator with Metro Boomin. When Soulja Boy called Metro out, 21 Savage defended his friend. On Akademiks’ Instagram page, he simply commented, “Or what.”

Soulja Boy didn’t take kindly to 21 Savage’s response. He fired back, threatening to slap both 21 Savage and Metro. But he didn’t stop there. Soulja Boy even brought up Metro’s late mother, wishing him a “happy Mother’s Day” in a twisted taunt. He later apologized for involving Metro Boomin mother.

The challenge

As if things weren’t heated enough, Soulja Boy challenged both Metro Boomin and 21 Savage to a boxing match.

"I’ll beat the f**k out of you,” he declared. “Sign the boxing contract since you pussy n-ggaz are so tough!"

Neither Metro nor 21 Savage has responded publicly yet, leaving fans wondering how this feud will play out. One thing’s for sure: Soulja Boy isn’t backing down, and the old tweet has sparked a new war in the hip-hop world.


In the ever-evolving landscape of rap beefs, Soulja Boy’s feud with 21 Savage and Metro Boomin adds another chapter. Whether it’s about old tweets or studio sessions, these artists know how to keep the drama alive.
