With the NBA YoungBoy and Lil Durk feud heating up, Calboy is siding with his late cousin King Von and Only The Family.
The Chicago native took to Twitter on Tuesday (March 8) to explain how he won’t be releasing his YoungBoy Never Broke Again collaboration out of respect for King Von and the current war of words.
“Out of respect for Von, I’ll never drop that YB song,” he wrote. “Out of respect for Von I’ll always call bullshit when I see it y’all n-ggas [don’t] respect shit.”
Fans flooded Calboy’s replies and comment section while calling him out for letting King Von diss others on their collabs and some even joked that YoungBoy wouldn’t even clear their song for release.
“They on the comments saying it didn’t even get cleared,” OMB Bloodbath added.
Trouble also chimed in regarding how people shouldn’t feel the need to take sides in the YoungBoy/Durk beef and then retracted his statement after finding out Calboy and King Von were cousins.
“Ohh ok ain kno dey was kuzzins,” he wrote. “He aint wrong den.. Da resta den niggaz hoes dou if u choosin sides an yall aint Bout slidin wit an for each otha
Calboy continued to reply on Twitter, “I let Von diss n-ggas in a song with me cuz ian got no respect for em either. If it’s up it juss is.”
Calboy addressed DaBaby directly on Twitter and Instagram Live as well Tuesday evening where he called the Charlotte rapper a “clown.”
“@DaBabyDaBaby how you got respect for my Cuzin n the dead but got a whole tape with a nigga dissing him, respect ah be to leave tht shit alone all together n pray both parties safe if that’s how u bummin, U a life size weirdo mascot,” he wrote. “Sell yo soul and integrity for bread u a bitch.”
HipHopDX caught up with Calboy last year following King Von’s murder at an Atlanta hookah lounge following an altercation with Quando Rondo’s crew on November 6, 2020. Calboy detailed how even though they were cousins, they didn’t become closer until later in life.
“That was a tough situation for me because even though I was successful, and I popped off before Von, I still looked up to him because of how he moved and how he just carried himself and the respect that he earned for himself,” he said.
“We weren’t that close, we just cousins through family. But his death definitely messed with my mental, especially after my cousin passed off popping an ecstasy pill and my other cousin got shot in the head.”
Calboy and King Von teamed up on tracks such as 2020’s “Brand New” prior to his death. Listen to it below.
