DaBaby Jojo Siwa feud for real? Rapper DaBaby dropped his latest song Beatbox freestyle and started facing backlash for calling Jojo Siwa a “b*tch” in his song. There’s a line in the lyrics and the video that seemed to have a connection with JoJo Siwa. Not only that, in the video, he arguably uses a photograph of the acclaimed 17-year-old rapper. However, DaBaby has cleared the air about his lyrics now.

“N—-, you a b—-/ JoJo Siwa, b—-/ She let the wrong n—- get rich,” DaBaby rhymes in the SpottemGottem’s Beat Box that was released on February 19. In the video, the 29-year-old rapper holds up a photo of Siwa smiling while he spits the line.

Naturally, the song soon got the Internet talking and the line about the 17-year-old Dance Moms alum left her fans outraged. “That Jojo diss came right tf out of nowhere,” one person commented under the YouTube video.

DaBaby tweets on the JoJo Siwa lyric 

“my 3 year old princess is your number 1 fan. I bought her every product you have out. She think she you,” DaBaby, an award-winning rapper, tweeted on Sunday, clearing all the confusion. “Don’t let em trick you into thinking id ever have a problem with you. My word play just went over their heads.”

“All love on my end shawty, Keep shinning!” he wrote.

However, the reason why DaBaby included JoJo’s name in the lyrics still remains unclear.

Dancer, singer and actor, Jojo Siwa is a young TikTokker who recently came out as gay. In an earlier video, Siwa danced to Lady Gaga’s famous Born This Way song, which is widely regarded as an LGBTQ+ pride anthem, making this her most popular video on TikTok. In an exclusive interview to The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon via video conference in early February, the teen influencer opened up about coming out as a member of the LGBTQ+ community. The TikTok star also talked about her girlfriend and said she was “super encouraging” and helped her come out.

As a dancer, Siwa first grabbed the spotlight on the Lifetime reality series Dance Moms. Soon she rose to popularity and signed up with Nickelodeon in 2017 and appeared in the TV movie Blurt, Lip Sync Battle Shorties. Later, she became the youngest contestant ever on Fox’s The Masked Singer.
