We had it all wrong. Soulja Boy and Chris Brown’s beef didn’t start when Lil Draco double tapped Karreuche Tran’s Instagram image. It apparently started when Soulja “chilled” with Rihanna after Chris brutally beat the popstar before the Grammys in 2009.
According to Soulja, his big celebrity bout with Chris Brown is all about avenging Rih Rih’s pre-Grammy beatdown. “I was going to chill, but now I’m going to finish this n****. I’m doing it for Rihanna,” a bored Soulja tweeted Sunday afternoon. “That was f*cked up how he beat her ass like that smh.” I mean, for what it’s worth, it was very much “f*cked” up. Especially since he was only sentenced to five years probation and 1,400 hours of “labor-oriented service” for punching her so many times that her mouth filled up with blood. As a result, the rapper says he’s going to knock out Chris and crank that Soulja Boy in celebration.
Soulja Boy isn’t shaking in his boots over 50 Cent hiring Mike Tyson to train Chris Brown either. The 26-year-old rapper said Mike can’t teach Breezy to do anything but bite his ear off like he did Evander Holyfield 20 years ago, rudely tweeting, “What the f*ck is Mike Tyson gonna teach Chris Brown? How to bite my ear off? Bitch the money team never lost. Shoutout big bro Floyd.”
Speaking out in a recent interview with Mayweather by his side, Soulja Boy says Chris is still feeling some type of way over his interactions with Rihanna from six years ago. Soulja Boy claims he was dating Teyana Taylor and kicked the G.O.O.D. Music singer out of his tour bus when Rihanna came through after one of his shows. According to Soulja Boy, Teyana called Chris and told him what happened, and since then, there’s been hate from Chris’ side. “What he really mad about is that I was with Rihanna and nobody wouldn’t have known that if he didn’t call my phone tripping about Karrueche. I was with Rihanna,” Draco claims.
The next day, I fly to New York. It’s like one in the morning, my management called, ‘Rihanna wants to talk to you. I text her…’I’m at the London Hotel, come through I just want to chill with you.’ I’m like, ‘Damn,’ I’m a young n***a from the hood I already know what time that is. I know what that’s about…That’s what the beef really stems from. It stems from Rihanna.”
I don’t even–sigh. Watch the interview for yourself.
