Soulja Boy and Chris Brown’s ongoing social media feud just keeps getting more personal … and more ridiculous/hilarious by the day.
How absurd is it? See dueling cases in point:
1. In a dig at Chris’ woman-beating past, Soulja says he is stepping into the boxing ring against Brown "for Rihanna" in March;
2. Mike Tyson is now on board Team Breezy.
Soulja Boy and Chris Brown, if you somehow missed it, have traded harsh words on social media throughout the new calendar year.
Those words, which began after Soulja Boy liked Karrueche pictures on Instagram, somehow escalated into a pay-per-view boxing match.
Brown got especially angry last week after Soulja Boy tweeted about his daughter Royalty and aligned himself with Floyd Mayweather.
The boxing champion is the driving force behind orchestrating the Chris Brown-Soulja Boy fight on pay per view, and training the latter.
Sunday, Soulja Boy said his fight against the singer was "for Rihanna," who Chris dated and infamously beat senseless way back in 2009.
Floyd’s team also unveiled this amazing promotional poster, alluding to the two stars’ use of guns and gang references in their beef:
Brown was sentenced to five years of probation and six months of community service for Rihanna attack, and his image never fully recovered.
Soulja Boy claimed that Brown initially told him he wants to "fight" him because he liked a photo of his other famous ex, Karrueche Tran.
The rapper has made frequent mention of the fact that Chris "beat the f–k" out of Rihanna, but is not actually hard enough for a real fight.
Chris countered that he was 17 at the time of his arrest (not true, but it was a long time ago), and that "talking s–t" is "beneath me."
Soulja Boy, Chris said, needs to get a "grown-man ass whooping" though; Brown then started lobbying to fight the guy in a boxing ring.
Mayweather, who is promoting the fight, then got involved to train Soulja Boy and troll Chris, who now has star power in his corner too:
"Yeah. Soulja Boy is gonna get f–ked up!" Mike Tyson boasted.
Soulja Boy, also on Sunday, was unfazed by the partnership:
"What the f–k is Mike Tyson gonna teach Chris Brown? How to bite my ear off? Bitch the money team never lost shoutout big bro Floyd."
"After I knock Chris brown out I’m going to crank that Soulja boy and super man in the ring on his stupid ass," Soulja Boy continued.
NOTE: If the Urban Dictionary definition of "superman" is accurate, then this will definitely be a PPV event well worth the price of admission.
SB continued his 24-7 smack talk thusly …
"I was going to chill but now I’m going to finish this n—a. I’m doing it for Rihanna. That was f–ked up how he beat her ass like that smh."
Tyson, the former world heavyweight boxing champion, obviously responded to Soulja’s comments with an Instagram rant of his own …
"Soulja Boy, what the f–k are you talking about, ‘only thing I’m gonna teach him is to bite somebody’s ear—yeah, that’s right!" Tyson said.
"I’m gonna teach him every dirty trick in the book to knock you out."
"’Cause I’m not gonna teach him how to run."
Soulja Boy took it down a notch in another Instagram video, saying that "Brothers fight. Sometimes brother fight, friends fight."
"After the fight, they shake hands and keep it moving But when we get in that ring, it ain’t no friends, and we’re gonna duke it out."
"And that’s what it is," he said, whilst getting a haircut. "Ain’t no beef, ain’t no violence. Put the guns down. Put your hands up."
"Soulja Boy versus Chris Brown," he said, is not to be missed.
Win or lose, this is gonna be "the biggest boxing match, the biggest fight of the century or the year. Get your tickets, they’re selling now."
Give the guy credit for his hype skills if nothing else.
For a look back down memory lane at the initial online exchange that started it all, take a gander below … with the volume fairly low.
Seriously, it’s NSFW.
