DaBaby is the latest all rapper to run afoul of the Twitter mob, thanks to his new “Beatbox” freestyle over SpotEmGottem’s song of the same title.
DaBaby, born Jonathan Kirk, dropped the song on a few days ago.
On Saturday, fans of actress JoJo Siwa started going after DaBaby, concluding he labeled her a b#### after this bar:
Using big words like I’m T.I./Don’t wanna get me started n####/turn me up, n##### gonna see why/N#### you a b#### JoJo Siwa (b####)/you let the wrong n#### get rich
Many of JoJo’s fans were furious. They blasted the Charlotte, North Carolina emcee for picking a fight 17-year-old.
“What kinda beef this Dababy have with JoJo? 😪 the girl literally stays in her lane always, if she was a problematic celebrity I would understand but this was just unprompted. Just distasteful in my opinion,” one user fumed.
Another said: “Why did DaBaby call Jojo Siwa a b####? Does he know she’s a child? So f###### random and weird.”
DaBaby was most likely attempting to play off of his first name (Jonathan), and the pronunciation of JoJo’s last name (Siwa), which is pronounced “see-why.”
The controversial lyric had DaBaby trending on Twitter, where users were fiercely debating the line.
Last week, Meek Mill was it a similar situation when his song “Don’t Worry (RIP Kobe” leaked containing the lines: “If I ever lack, I’m goin’ out with my chopper, it be another Kobe…”
Take a look at some of the replies over DaBaby’s lines name checking JoJo Siwa on “Beatbox.”

Dababy’s real first name: Jonathan
“Jojo siwa you a b####” translates to “Jojo “see why” you a b####” wordplay at its finest pic.twitter.com/jVK8C3Fvc0

@DaBabyDaBaby you are 29 years old. Jojo Siwa is 17 years old. Don't be a grown person that picks on minors for status. It's way past time for you to be an adult.
