As of late tensions have been running high between the two rappers…now we know why!
In preparation for the upcoming celebrity boxing match between Soulja Boy and Chris Brown, Soulja and his boxing coach, Floyd Mayweather, sat down with Hollywood Unlocked for a juicy and expletive laden interview. Check it out above!
A main portion of the interview revolved around the real story behind the bad blood between the rappers-as narrated by Soulja Boy. The 26 year-old pointed to Brown’s physical abuse of his then girlfriend, Rihanna, in 2009 as the foundation for the beef.
Soulja Boy spilled that shortly after her assault Rihanna actually reached out to him and asked to attend his concert. Of course the starstruck rapper eagerly obliged-even giving his girl the boot from the tour bus in favor of some alone time with Rihanna. Allegedly it was his jaded girl who promptly after being de-tour bused by Rihanna gave Chris Brown a quick call with the 411.
Things went further when Rihanna again reached out to Soulja Boy, inviting him to her New York hotel room to blaze and chill. Like a true gentleman Soulja never kissed and told-that is if he even kissed at all. The rapper’s interactions with Rihanna all sounded more friendly than romantic. Plus, when questioned over the phone by Chris Brown on the subject he denied any allegations insinuating anything more than a platonic friendship between him and Ri Ri.
Soulja Boy also threw shade at Chris Brown for “stealing [his] whole swag.” Citing that he got face tats and gold chains first. Looks like Brown is a copycat.
Towards the end of the interview Soulja got FIRED up talking about Brown’s pretty deplorable actions towards Rihanna. Seriously, who could hit something so beautiful-must be a real sicko. Anyway according to Soulja Boy, Chris Brown better be ready come time to box.
