Bobby Shmurda has threatened YoungBoy Never Broke Again after the pair went back and forth over comments Rowdy Rebel made on a podcast.
In a few posts on his Instagram story, according to HipHopDX, YoungBoy referred to Shmurda as “von Shmurda” and a “slave.” “I thought you were a fan,” he wrote. “Go make a hit. I just want to be friends. … Well, violently speaking. Help me keep the peace or just remain a distant slave.
He followed up the posts with a number of videos, in which he berated both Shmurda and his close associate Rowdy, while also suggesting that he didn’t want to get in trouble.
“This slut wants another nigga to jump out of the truck and fake pump, then get shot in the face? Man, you sound dumb as an asshole! You’re stupid,” he said, as seen below. “I don’t want any trouble with you n****s, man. Get the fuck out of my way or go away, man. Stop the violence like I said, man.
YoungBoy also pointed out that Shmurda went to prison at the “high point” of his career, joking that his streaming numbers have been low since his return.
After his comments, Shmurda fired back during an Instagram Live session.
“Someone tag the little nigga ’cause I ain’t doing this internet shit,” he said. ‘I wasn’t even talking about you. Do you understand, little nigga? … I’m already 2 and 0 for the year. Conditionally, nigga. $1 million up. Stop fucking playing with me… I make $100,000 a week. I don’t give a fuck about no views, I’m not a little kid like you n****s. I am 28 years old, I am a mature man. I’m here for money.”
He then threatened YoungBoy, Quando and DJ Akademiks. “Every nigga I catch like Wack ’, he said. “You can record all of this, I’m going to pop them on camera. Released on parole? I don’t give a fuck. I’m gonna bang one of you n****s on camera. About my late grandma, nigga. Is there something goddamn wrong with you n****s?”
In a number of videos posted in response, YoungBoy appeared to laugh off the threats. “That nigga wants to kill me,” he said in a clip. “Don’t worry about trying to harm me, boy. And you’re not going to touch me. I’ve got security, man.
Shmurda shared another word on the matter, noting that he received a call from his parole officer because of his threats. “I don’t want any trouble,” he said with a smile in the video. ‘I’m not hurting anyone! Exactly how I play on the Instagrams.
During the same clip, he referenced YoungBoy’s former label, Atlantic Records, accusing him of using “bots” to increase his streams.
“Atlantic Records, I know you all have NBA YoungBoy. Epic already on my ass, Roc Nation. Please listen. Atlantic Records, I don’t want any trouble,” said the rapper, who is now independent after leaving Epic. “I don’t want any trouble with those labels, man. They have the marketing side where some people will try and push to lock you up where they don’t want me to fight back. Then they got the marketing with the bots. Atlantic has the best bots. Atlantic’s bots are crazy. The NBA’s bots are about to go crazy. 1,000 bots is something like $2,000. They have packages.”
He also circled back to YoungBoy’s “slave” comment, returning it to the rapper. ‘I am not a slave. NBA is like one of the biggest slaves in the game,” he said. ‘He’s a slave to them, so they’ll go crazy [the] boy. All the shit you see on YouTube is fake views.” He doubled down on the payola allegations, accusing his label of paying $2,000 to each radio station to circulate his songs.
It all culminated when YoungBoy shared some DMs between him and Shmurda, which he has since blocked. He is calling
“Nah you da feds,” Shmurda said as he reposted the exchange. “I’m sorry to all the gangsters for entertaining this. I’ve done a bad job. I apologize as a man, please. I don’t want to argue with anyone.” Most of the posts have since been deleted, while YoungBoy has apparently deactivated his Instagram page.
This beef seems to have started after Rowdy questioned the motives of King Von’s alleged killer Lul Tim, who is an associate of YoungBoy and Quando Rondo, during a recent appearance on Math Hoffa’s My expert opinion. He wondered why the situation turned out the way it did and escalated to murder instead of a peaceful resolution. YoungBoy got wind of the comments and has since called Rowdy “irrelevant.”
“‘Try to understand all the sense thinking what they really say but sound stupid asf’ Mind your business,” YoungBoy said in a post on his Instagram story. “And stop the violence – Quando big brother.”
Just a day later, Shmurda appeared to reject Quando Rondo after making a reference to Asshole Tim on the 3860 joint mixtape with YoungBoy. N***s are rushing everyone. What are you doing? What are you doing, homie? said Shmurda. “Stop telling me about your brother’s shooters and about this and you from your brother always – what the hell are you doing? Hey?! When are you finally going to do something?
