Since then, the two have brought their spat face-to-face, taking their beef from Twitter to a heated Instagram Live call on February 3.
Soulja Boy started the nearly four-minute-long call by flexing his watch to the camera – after which Paul claimed that he was going to “beat [Soulja Boy’s] ass.”
“Imma knock you out, on my mama,” Soulja Boy retorted, going on to warn Paul to “have his hands ready” when they meet – implying that the two would fight “on sight.”
Soulja went on to put $20 million on their fight, citing his new record deal with label Warner/Chappell music.
“Put your money where your mouth is, bro!” Paul shot back. “I’m gonna beat your ass, bro!”

The two went on to claim that their fight would be pay-per-view, with both parties wanting to put the bout on a contract.
Paul began the beef by tagging Soulja Boy in a Tweet on February 1, writing, “I want to box Soulja Boy.”
Soulja boy shot back in kind, Tweeting, “Boy, I’ll knock you out.”

Paul went on to reference the rapper’s popular interview with the Breakfast Club, writing, “Yeah yeah, and you probably think Tyson copied the way you punch.”
This isn’t the first time Paul has called out a celebrity with the hopes of a boxing match in mind, either; Paul likewise challenged singer-songwriter Chris Brown and mixed martial artist Dillon Danis – both of which turned out unsuccessful.
