“Draaaaaake?” he asked during the interview. “Y’all n-ggas better stop playing with me man. Y’all talking about the lightskin n-gga from Degeneres? Stop playing with me. Stop playing me like I ain’t teach Drake everything he know. Y’all ain’t hear Drake on his first song?”
“‘Tell me what’s really going on, Drizzy Drake back in this thing already, what’s hap—,'” he rapped. “That’s Soulja! That’s my bar. He copied my whole f-cking flow. He copied my whole f-cking flow. Word for word. Bar for bar. Don’t act like I didn’t make Drake.”

Soulja Boy has also had some conflict with Bow Wow, which they’ve supposedly made peace about. But they still spar on social media now and then, so watch Bow Wow’s Twitter for a rebuttal.
