Soulja Boy a.k.a. Big Draco appeared to have thrown shades at DaBaby. Just one day after the latter drew backlash for shutting down candy-selling kids, the "She Make It Clap" spitter turned to social media to give the "Rockstar" hitmaker some examples.
On Tuesday, July 13, the 30-year-old shared on Instagram Story a clip that saw him handing a stack of cash to one boy selling a box of candy, which costs $5 apiece. "Stop playing with them and I don't want the candy. First rapper to give a n***a a bankroll and let him keep the candy," he said in the footage.
Soulja then added another video where he met another kid. The clip saw him giving the kid $100 bills and telling him to keep the candy. He then headed into the Nordstrom department store with some of his pals.
This came just one day after DaBaby refused to pay $200 for one box of candy. In footage shared on Instagram Story on June 12, he could be seen teaching two kids some lessons. "You made $400 off that and you selling them for $2? Let's count 'em. What's 34 times two? It ain't $200. It ain't even $100 [laughs]. That's $68," he said.
DaBaby, real name Jonathan Lyndale Kirk, ended up handing $4 instead and jumped into his van with only two bags of candy. "You gotta use your head, man," he told the kids. "I was gon' bless you anyway. You woulda got the $200, now you got $2. Y'all be good, love."
Fans were quick to criticize the "Find My Way" rhymer for his action. They believed that he could have just given his money because $200 wouldn't be a thing for him. The hip-hop star, however, claimed that he shut down the two boys because he wanted to teach him how to avoid greed.
"Anytime I buy something from somebody else in there I buy the whole thing. Especially when it's kids. I give them the opportunity, just make it make sense why you want $200 for this," he explained when speaking to Complex News. "You tell me, 'Man, I usually charge somebody this for the whole box. I'm just gon' charge you $2 all the way down.' I'da looked at him, gave him a thousand dollars."
"I ain't cuss 'em out and this and that," the 29-year-old continued. "I gave them knowledge and bought one piece of candy from each of them and closed the door."
