Lil Yachty On Soulja Boy: “Everything He Said Was a Lie”
While the short-lived beef between Soulja Boy and Lil Yachty appears to have passed, Yachty recently opened up about the whole ordeal.
During an interview with 97.9 The Box in Houston, the Atlanta rapper essentially said everything Soulja Boy said over social media was a lie.
"It was not a fight," said Yachty. "It was a cry for attention. I did not respond. I was not a part of that.
"I was not arguing with this man," he added. "And it wasn’t fake. A lot of people thought it was fake -- a publicity stunt. I don’t need a publicity stunt, bro. That’s not me being cocky, bro. I don’t even want to be in the public like that."
The beef started in late October, after both rappers staked a claim on model India Love. Soulja Boy first posted a handful of pictures of himself and Love on Instagram, followed by a screenshot of a alleged text message from Lil Yachty asking him to take the snaps down... because India was his "shorty". Instead, Soulja Boy kept posting photos of himself and Love, causing a rift between the two.
He later claimed the model has never even spoken to Yachty, who claims different.
"I’m telling you, that whole thing, you wanna call it fake," he said. "It wasn’t fake, but everything he said was a lie."
