If you’ve been on the internet in the past week, you’ve heard about this Soulja Boy/Chris Brown beef, whether you want to admit it or not.
To be honest, it irks me a little to have to write this piece, but I’d be lying to myself if I said the beef wasn’t at the center of the new-age (kinda weird tbh) rap world.
The beef began when Soulja accused Chris Brown of jealously calling his phone to tell him not to like his ex-girlfriend, Karrueche Tran’s, picture on Instagram.
Soulja wasn’t very happy about the phone call and posted a video to Instagram letting everyone know just that.
Brown didn’t hesitate to respond and the two got into a war of words over the internet. Eventually, Brown just straight up challenged Soulja Boy to a boxing match, which Soulja accepted.

This led to a weird chain of events, where Soulja was almost robbed while on Instagram live, and then he even apologized to Brown acknowledging he had been acting out ever since his mother was hospitalized.
The peace treaty didn’t last long though, as Soulja returned to Instagram to flaunt the trainer for his fight with Brown, boxing champion Floyd Mayweather.
With Floyd Mayweather promoting the fight, it became an instant Pay-per-view worthy event, as the boxer has grossed more than $600 million though a career where was the primary promoter for most of his fights.
To even things out, 50 Cent sided with Chris Brown and recruited Mike Tyson to train him.
The theatrics measure up to what should be a rich Pay-per-view event.
So the question is this: How much does the general public care about this beef? Are you willing to pay to see Brown and Soulja Boy fight? Let us know!
