While Soulja has yet to speak on the matter via social media, their altercation comes as no surprise, as the rapper told Paul during a previous facetime that the two would fight “on sight.”

Both parties have since placed a whopping $20 million on their bout - although Paul speculated that Soulja Boy doesn’t have the cash in question.
