The rapper’s “Beatbox” freestyle, with a line name-dropping the Dance Moms alum, raised some questions over the weekend — but it turns out DaBaby was just using her name in a play on words.
“N—-, you a b—-/ JoJo Siwa, b—-/ She let the wrong n—- get rich,” DaBaby rhymes on the track. In the “Beatbox” video, he holds up a photo of a smiling Siwa.
Some fans had guessed why DaBaby dropped the Siwa line, while others apparently took it as an insult to the 17-year-old, one that seemingly came out of nowhere and had both stars’ names trending on Twitter and Google.
After having a laugh — “I love Twitter bruh,” he tweeted — DaBaby cleared the air on Sunday (Feb. 21).
“my 3 year old princess is your number 1 fan. I bought her every product you have out. She think she you,” DaBaby tweeted to Siwa. “Don’t let em trick you into thinking id ever have a problem with you. My word play just went over their heads.”
“All love on my end shawty, Keep shinning!” DaBaby wrote.
And in reply to a joke he spotted on Twitter, he said, “I don’t ‘Siwa’ they so mad either bae.”
On his Instagram Stories, DaBaby added, “Y’all MFs sick lol. Y’all ok w/ that child being tricked into thinking I got a problem with her, WE F— WIT YOU JOJO.”
