Chris Brown wants Offset to “fight” him after the Migos rapper slammed Brown for sharing a 21 Savage meme.

On Sunday, Brown, 29, shared a clip of 21 Savage freestyling with a British accent.

“CMON FAM, STOP PLAYING WIT DA MANS DEM,” the singer captioned the post referring to 21 Savage who was taken into custody on Sunday by ICE, for allegedly overstaying his 2005 visa.

While Brown, as some fans pointed out, seemed to be defending 21 Savage by telling people to stop making fun of the British-born rapper, Offset, 27, wasn’t amused.

“Memes ain’t funny lame,” Offset, who released a collaborative album with 21 Savage titled Without Warning in 2017, wrote in the comment section of Brown’s post on Tuesday.

The comment promptly ignited a feud between the artists as Brown responded with “F— you lil boy.”

“Better worry about what u got going and focus on ‘you.’ All this cap on IG is whats lame,” Brown continued.

“Yo energy won’t like that when I came to the Drake show in LA… if u don’t get yo hip a hop a hibbet a hibbet to the hip hop and ya don’t stop the rockin face ass out my comments.”

“Sensitive ass n—. Call me personally. U want some clout when all u gotta do is pull up. No camera no flexing and all at!!!” Brown wrote.

“If you a real man fight me. Oh and another thing, suck my d—,” Brown added.

Offset later responded to Brown’s message on his Instagram Stories writing, “Coke head don’t want [smoke emoji].”

The post has since been deleted.

Offset’s defense of 21 Savage comes after his estranged wife Cardi B called out Tomi Lahren on Twitter after the conservative commentator tweeted in response to 21 Savage’s arrest.

“I got one, two, three, four, five, six, seven, eight ICE agents ready to deport ya,” Lahren tweeted in reference to the lyrics of 21 Savage’s song “Bank Account.”

“Don’t make me get my leash,” Cardi, 26, responded, referring to a previous tweet where she told Lahren that she would “dog walk” her.

In a statement released Tuesday, 21 Savage’s legal team addressed the claims that the rapper overstayed his visa and the fan speculation that he was targeted due to a recent anti-ICE rap.

“Many have speculated as to possible ulterior motives for his arrest and detention, including that he released music five days prior to his arrest by ICE, which included new lyrics condemning the behavior of immigration officials for their detention of children at the border,” the rapper’s legal team alleged in a statement obtained by PEOPLE.

In the song “A Lot” from his album I Am > I Was, 21 Savage, born She’yaa Bin Abraham-Joseph raps “Been through some things so I can’t imagine my kids stuck at the border/ Flint still need water/ People was innocent, couldn’t get lawyers.”

“Mr. Abraham-Joseph was born in the United Kingdom. Mr. Abraham-Joseph arrived legally in the United States at the age of 7,” the statement explained.

“He remained in the United States until 2005, when he departed for approximately one month to visit the United Kingdom. He returned to the United States under a valid H-4 visa on July 22, 2005.”

“Mr. Abraham-Joseph has been continuously physically present in the United States for almost 20 years, except for a brief visit abroad. Unfortunately, in 2006 Mr. Abraham-Joseph’s legal status expired through no fault of his own.”

His lawyers argued that he should be considered a Dreamer, the name used to describe children who were brought to this country illegally by their parents and were offered visas under the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) immigration policy.

His legal team went on to argue 21 Savage “has no criminal convictions or charges under state or federal law and is free to seek relief from removal in immigration court.”

“ICE provided incorrect information to the press when it claimed he had a criminal conviction.”

An ICE spokesman previously said 21 Savage “was convicted on felony drug charges in October 2014 in Fulton County, Georgia,” in a statement to Fox 5 Atlanta.

At this time, 21 Savage is being held without bond. However, “by statute, bond should be granted by ICE when there is no flight risk or a danger to the community,” according to his lawyers.
