Say what? DaBaby dropped its freestyle via SpotemGottem’s “Beatbox” on February 19, and there’s a line in the lyrics and video that seemingly offends JoJo Siwa

“N —-, you from —- / JoJo Siwa, b —- / She made the wrong n —- get rich”, DaBaby rhymes In the video, the 29- year old rapper posted a photo of Siwa smiling as he spat out the line

The lyrics about the 17-year-old Dance Moms alum have puzzled fans, and a large chunk of the YouTube and Twitter comments discuss the line rather than the general merits of DaBaby’s freestyle, “That yo-yo diss came out of nowhere “commented one person below the YouTube video

A third shared: “Just when you thought life couldn’t get stranger, Dababy Jojo Siwa contradicts”

As scratchy as the text may be, some fans were trying to guess why the rapper seemingly dropped such a line about an entertainer who is more than 10 years younger than him

“I have a feeling he just said Jojo Siwa since it rhymed,” mused a person on YouTube

Added one more: “He didn’t cast a shadow over Jojo, it clearly shows that he used her last name as in ‘see why’ instead of ‘Siwa’ ‘”

Some said DaBaby used the teen star’s name to spark controversy. “The yo-yo line did exactly what DaBaby & wanted others in its camp to do,” wrote one person, “stirring up controversy on & Views “Another on Twitter agreed and commented on DaBaby’s post”He put in that yo-yo line because he knew it would make people talk. Smart business just moves”

If the line’s intent was indeed to get the rapper and his freestyle noticed, it worked DaBaby became a trending topic on Twitter and Google over the weekend

Regardless of his justification for mentioning Siwa in his freestyle, not all of his followers are impressed

“Other rappers playing with shooters and killers while DaBaby is playing with Jojo Siwa,” wrote one person on YouTube
