Megan Thee Stallion unknowingly unleashed the wrath of Kodak Black producer Dyryk on Friday (October 8) when she tweeted the NBA YoungBoy catchphrase “YB Better” followed by “You fell off…period” and “If you an opp don’t tweet at me…this is not a group project.”
The tweets arrived shortly after Kodak Black rehashed the “drive the boat” controversy during an interview with Akademiks, once again claiming he created the catchphrase with a viral meme — not Megan Thee Stallion.
Knowing YoungBoy and Kodak Black have a sordid history, fans immediately came to the conclusion Megan was addressing Yak. So on Saturday (October 9), Dyryk posted a message to Megan on his Instagram Stories, accusing the award-winning rapper of using ghostwriters and lacking any real talent.
“@TheeStallion BEEN IN YOUR WRITING CAMPS WITH ALL YOUR ‘GO-TO WRITERS,’” he wrote in all caps. “YOU ARE DEFINITELY NOT THE TALENT BEHIND ANY OF YOUR RECORDS. GO CLING ON THAT BOTTLE AND RE-CUT THAT VERSE ONE MORE TIME, YOU DIDN’T MATCH THE REFERENCE THEY WROTE FOR YOU.”
Megan Thee Stallion has addressed allegations of ghostwriting before. In 2019, a woman named Wolftyla claimed she got her first placement on Hot Girl Meg’s Fever mixtape on the song “Simon Says” featuring Juicy J.
Megan fired back on her Instagram Stories, “I write all my own shit don’t let nobody gas you up like that. That clout shit crazy. Like I said don’t nobody write my shit for me… so don’t try to insinuate you did… just be clear from the beginning.
“I didn’t even know she had nothing to do with the song Juicy J say you ain’t write nothing. Simon says shut tf up.”
“I was in a studio session and I was playing my music and somehow happened to leave the door open to the studio session, and Juicy [J]’s manager came in,” she said at the time. “I went in there [their studio], they played me a bunch of beats, I picked out the beats that I loved, I did some writing on it, melodies on it, and then boom.”
She added, “I was just going in there really humble Juicy J’s a legend and I’m not gonna sit here and bash him because, hey, the industry is the industry and business is business, but I definitely was going in there bright-eyed and really excited to work with him.”
