Over the weekend, DaBaby released “Beatbox Freestyle,” and it got him in some trouble. In the song, he name drops 17-year-old YouTube personality JoJo Siwa.
He raps, “Usin’ big words like I’m T.I. (Turn up)/Don’t wanna get me started, n—-/Turn me up, n—s gon’ see why/N—-, you a b—h, JoJo Siwa (B—-).”
Of course, his play on words left many confused on Twitter.

Why did DaBaby include that Jojo Siwa line in his freestyle? 💀 Regardless of rhyme a 29 year old dissing a 17 year old doesn’t sit right with me pic.twitter.com/ZGzpYGbUQS— Vierra (@vierra_music) February 20, 2021
Since getting backlash, DaBaby has responded.
He wrote, “@itsJojosiwa my 3 year old princess is your number 1 fan. I bought her every product you have out. She think she you. 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!”
