The beef is on between Soulja Boy and Lil Yachty.
On Friday (Oct. 28), Soulja posted a series of photos of model India Love, claiming he missed his old flame. In a screenshot posted by Soulja, Yacthy — who claimed to be dating Love — asked him to take the posts down.
Instead of obliging, however, the Ignorant Shit MC turned up with more posts about his reported ex and about Yachty. “I’ll knock Lil boat out with one punch,” he wrote on Instagram, before calling him a groupie.
To add to the beef, Soulja posted texts with India claiming she has never met Yachty. “Beefing over a girl that don’t claim u kill your self homie you a bozo,” added Soulja.
For his part, Lil Boat hit Twitter to announce that he isn’t “beefin over no female.” He continued: “All Ima say is…fuckin wit da boat you gone sink. Period.”
And although he tweeted that “it’s no beef,” Boat took to the stage at the Mala Luna Music Festival in a “Pray 4 Soulja Boy R.I.P. 2007-2016” shirt to perform what appears to be a diss freestyle.
“Fuck Soulja Boy, you a bitch-ass ni**a,” raps Yachty. “Lil Boat came in with a hundred ni**as / Fuckin’ on your bitch / I know that you mad / It’s Lil Boat, bitch / I’m so glad.”
In a video message, Boat also added: “I guess when you washed up, you getta go to desperate measures. I will never know what that’s like.”
In an interview with Uforia, Boat explained how their relationship shifted. “When your idols become your rivals,” he said. “It’s sad…I was upset at first. I’m not gonna lie…I’m not no gangster. I was upset at first.”

More could come from this rivalry. Soulja Boy is currently teasing a Yachty diss track, “Fuck Ni**a.” Looks like this feud is far from over.
