Soulja Boy Slams Tyga as He Applauds Travis Scott for Kylie Jenner Romance: 'He Took Tyga's B—!'
Soulja Boy's ongoing feud with Tyga continues — and this time, he's dragging Travis Scott and Kylie Jenner into it
The “Crank That” rapper, 28, has been feuding with Tyga, 29, over who had the biggest comeback of 2018, a title he claimed as his own during a recent chat with The Breakfast Club. And after exchanging a few words on Twitter, Soulja Boy doubled down on his claims to TMZ.
“I’m the hottest rapper in the game,” he said. “I’m the only rapper to come out with his own video game console. I’m the first rapper to do that s—! First rapper on YouTube. I’m the reason why music is digital right now. Spotify streams and Apple Music? I did that with “Crank That.” I did that!”
Then, Soulja Boy got personal. Asked if Travis Scott was making a mistake performing at the Super Bowl amid backlash, Soulja Boy said no and pivoted to a Tyga-diss — congratulating Scott, 26, for starting a relationship with Jenner, 21, after their split.
“I love Travis Scott. He took Tyga’s bitch, I love that n—!” Soulja Boy said.
On The Breakfast Club, Soulja Boy pointed to the fact that he was able to overcome controversy in 2018 as proof of his “biggest comeback” title worthiness.
“I had the biggest comeback of 2018 period,” he said. “When I say comeback, I’m not meaning I fell back and had to get back on. [In] 2016, 2017, I got into all them problems with the Migos, Chris Brown, Shia LaBeouf, this person that person, and I was presented in a way that people counted me out.”
“They laughed at me!” said Soulja Boy, who counts “Turn My Swag On,” “Kiss Me Thru the Phone,” and “Pretty Boy Swag” among his hits. “They said I killed hip-hop, and now they’re doing exactly what I did and I’m being shunned upon. I’m the reason y’all doing this. I’m the reason why all these artists have social media. Y’all should thank me. Every artist in the game, all y’all record labels, y’all owe me 5 percent bro. Y’all gonna respect it. Y’all ain’t gotta like me. I ain’t did nothing to nobody my whole career but try to help people and make fun music, and be this happy young kid.”
“TYGA?” Soulja Boy added when show host Charlemagne tha God suggested the fellow rapper also had a successful year. “The n— that lost to Travis Scott? … He had the biggest comeback? Because what, he did a record with Nicki Minaj? … “I love Tyga. I can’t wait to do a record with him but, at the same time, you ain’t have no biggest comeback, bruh.”
Tyga didn’t take Soulja Boy’s claims lying down. The “Rack City” rapper posted a side-by-side photo comparing Spotify streaming numbers for both artists — numbers that showed that Tyga earned a staggering 884 million streams on the platform in 2018, while Soulja only got 98 million streams.
“Who had the biggest comeback?! 😭😭😭” Tyga asked, in the post’s caption.
Hours later, Soulja responded. “I HAD THE BIGGEST COMEBACK OF 2018!” he wrote — blasting Tyga, Drake, and Kanye West, too.
“You up here supporting Trump and s—,” Soulja Boy said. “You supporting Trump, bruh? What the f— wrong with you, bruh. That s— not right, bruh. I have sat back long enough and I’m not holding my tongue no more, bruh. Kanye, call me, get in tune with me cause if not I’m going to keep checking you.”
“My folks went through too much s— for you to be out here doing this goofy s—,” he continued. “My grandaddy been through too much, my grandma and great grandaddy, they from Mississippi and they from Mississippi, we went through slavery and s—. You gotta put on for the black community.”
Meanwhile, Jenner and Scott appear to be happy together — coparenting daughter Stormi Webster, who turns 1 on Feb. 1.
The two stars were first spotted together at a Coachella party in April 2017, the same month Jenner split from Tyga.
Jenner and Tyga were first linked in the fall of 2014 when Kylie was just 17, though they didn’t confirm the relationship until March 2015. Following Jenner’s 18th birthday in August that year, the two became much more open as a couple, regularly stepping out together and documenting much of their love on social media.
During an August 2017 episode of her E! reality show Life of Kylie, Jenner opened up about the split.
“There was absolutely not one thing wrong with me and T. He and I will always, always have a bond,” she said. “There was no crazy fight, we just decided…Well, I decided that I’m really young. I don’t want to look back in five years from now and feel like he took something from me when he’s really not that type of person.”
