The 22-year-old rapper's track comes on the heels of "AHHH HA" by Lil Durk, a song in which he disses NBA YoungBoy and defends the late King Von. Resultingly, NBA YoungBoy went into the booth with a bone to pick with Lil Durk and his associates as well as a few other significant figures.
NBA YoungBoy makes it clear that he's choosing violence at the very beginning of the track, stating, "How you talkin' shit when nothin' ain't died about your cousin nem?" This is a reference to the supposed lack of retaliation over the death of Lil Durk's cousin, OTF NuNu, and the rapid-fire disses proceed to follow shortly after.
In the four-and-a-half-minute song, the Baton Rouge rapper called out Lil Durk and other general rappers who are affiliated with O-Block. He also dissed Lil Durk's fiancée, India Royale, and called out Gucci Mane for recently collaborating with the Chicago rapper.
"Used to fuck with Gucci 'til I seen he like them pussy n***as," NBA YoungBoy said of Gucci Mane.
Other rappers whose' name was dropped include Lil Baby, 21 Savage, Boosie, and Chinese Kitty. Lil Durk's father also found himself dragged into the situation after NBA YoungBoy essentially called him a snitch, and the rapper went on to also diss larger entities, including Apple and general YouTube streamers.
