Soulja Boy attacked his opponents musical ability, with digs such as: "Bow wow couldn’t make a hit in 2021 if his life depended on it" and "I can’t name 5 bow wow songs on gang".
Bow wow hit back at the insults, calling Soulja Boy "the ben simmons of the rap game" and saying he would make more as Bow Wow's assistant than from his own tour.
The insults didn't stop there, Bow Wow proceeded to hit back at his rap rival saying: "The diff w/ me and you is.. YOU HAVE TO PUT OUT MUSIC. I don’t. Ill be in the box office this weekend while you sit at home in your living room yelling on live at no one"

He then proceeded to troll, continuing: "Your lambo dont come with bluetooth. You have a gallardo. Not a hurrican or aventador. You cant even hook that shit up in your car ... yours still got a cd player in it."
However, he concluded the tweet by letting us know the shade is lighthearted saying: "Love you brother see you soon."
The shade didn't end there, Soulja Boy tweeted Bow Wow asking him "How you get so lame" and in response the 'Let me hold you' rapper took digs at Soulja Boy's hairline, saying: "I dunno I should ask you. Have you seen your hairline lately?".
