Lil Yachty Says Soulja Boy Used Beef as a Cry for Attention
The beef between Lil Yachty and Soulja Boy seems to have blown over after erupting last month, but speaking with 97.9 The Box, Yachty says he doesn't even consider what happened to be beef since he never responded beyond a few tweets. The bad blood seemed to have started over who of the two could call model India Love theirs, but in the above interview, Yachty calls Soulja Boy's actions a cry for attention and the whole drama stupid.
"That was not a rap beef. I didn’t take that serious. He took it serious but nobody else took that serious," he says. "I’d like to clear up the fact that that was not a beef. And it wasn’t fake. A lot of people thought it was a publicity stunt. I don’t need a publicity stunt, bro. I don’t even want to be in the public like that."
Yachty as well says that he once thought Soulja Boy was the coolest person, and that he would have gone crazy if "it was somebody relevant" coming at him. As for whether or not he still speaks to India Love, Yachty provided a resounding yes. "That whole thing…everything he said was a lie," he says. "He was just talking, it was just fake... old pictures from a year ago."
Towards the end of the clip, Yachty says that he's planning to drop his debut album in December despite the fact that hasn't started working on it. As for features, he says he hopes to work with Pharrell, Swizz Beatz, J Gramm, PartyNextDoor, Migos and Kid Cudi,
