Controversial YouTuber Jake Paul and American rapper DeAndre ‘Soulja Boy’ Cortez Way could be gearing up for a boxing match, after the two exchanged words on Twitter in early February.

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.

Dixie D’Amelio’s fans think her latest song, ‘One Whole Day,’ is a diss track aimed at her ex-boyfriend, Griffin Johnson, but she claimed it isn’t and explained what it’s really about.

Dixie D’Amelio rocked the world with the release of her latest song, ‘One Whole Day.’ The lyrics tell how she had a falling out with a boyfriend but was only sad for one whole day and shed a single tear.

Her fans assume the song is about her break up with Griffin Johnson and think it’s her way of throwing him some shade. However, Dixie D’Amelio recently answered some questions about the song on YouTube, and she explained that it’s not a diss track.

Dixie D’Amelio collaborated with Wiz Khalifa to produce her latest song, ‘One Whole Day.’

“Being sad is not what the song is about,” she said, without mentioning Griffin Johnson’s name. “The song is basically about how I am only going to be sad for one day from a breakup.”

“When you are treated in a way where you’re not number one or a number one priority or shown true care and love and affection more than anyone else, there’s no point in being upset about it for more than one day,” she added.

It’s reasonable to assume this might have been an issue in Dixie D’Amelio’s relationship with Griffin Johnson. Either way, the point is, it’s more about the personal realization she had rather than the break-up itself.

Dixie D’Amelio and Griffin Johnson were together for a while, but things didn’t work out.

“The song does mean a lot to me because I’ve spent a lot of my life being upset about things for too long,” she said. “If a person… cannot treat me with respect… then I don’t want them in my life, and I will not be upset about it for more than one whole day.”

“That’s kind of my idea of the song. It’s not a diss in any way. It’s… showing self-love… to myself,” she added. “It’s important to love yourself. It’s important to know you’re worth, so that’s… what it’s all about.”

Segment begins at 1:30.

‘One Whole Day’ might refer to some of the experiences and feelings Dixie D’Amelio had during her break-up with Griffin Johnson, but it’s not intended to be a diss track in any way, shape, or form.

The song’s meaning runs much deeper than that. It’s about feeling a sense of self-love and self-worth during a break-up, no matter how sad it can be in the short-term.
