Any rap festival is incomplete without a serving of beef, and thanks to Lil Yachty, Mala Luna got its fix this Saturday. The red dreaded rapper stopped early in his set to tell the audience about some issues he and 2007 star Soulja Boy have been dealing with (something stemming from lady problems, you can have the whole thing explained here.)
Earlier that day, Soulja Boy had threatened to kick Yatchy’s “butt” the next time that he sees him. In response, Lil Yatchy, after talking mad noise about Soulja Boy, beckoned his over-crowded audience, made up of both hyper-excited supporters (I saw about six guys rocking the Lil’ Boat hair-style) and hyper-confused not-so-much fans (“Is his name Lil Yachty or Lil Boat?”), to raise their middle fingers to the sky and chant “F*** Soulja Boy.” Ouch.
The rap game sure is an intriguing one. Who would have thought that Soulja Boy, whom one could argue is at the same caliber of Lil Yachty, would so aggressively come at one of the few artists who openly acknowledges that he’s one of their biggest inspirations- especially over mundane drama? Perhaps this beef will boost Soulja Boy’s relevancy and help him sell his new mixtape.
