The weirdest back-and-forth in hip-hop right now is what's going on between 21 Savage and Tyga. The two rappers are bickering on social media because of Kylie Jenner, T-Raww's current girlfriend. It all started late last month when 21 tweeted that he had a celebrity crush. Days later it was revealed that the celebrity crush is none other than the youngest Jenner sister. For the better part of last month and the first few days of December, the two superstars have been trading shots -- both subliminal and explicit.
Tyga and Kylie have been an item for years. They have broken up, got back together and most recently there were rumors that the G.O.O.D. Music rapper was going to propose to her. This past July, Kylie Jenner rekindled her relationship with Tyga. Shortly after news they were once again together, the Cali rapper was spotted leaving a jewelry store with a bag in tow -- an engagement ring was rumored to be inside.
Back in January, Tyga was a guest on Khloe Kardashian’s dinner party show Kocktails with Khloe and admitted that he intends to marry Kylie saying, “Yeah for sure…Yeah, ya’ll know that. Y’all know what it is” with a big grin on his face as he answered the question. So it's pretty understandable why Tyga isn't laughing about 21 Savage publicly crushing over his girlfriend.
Check out a the brief history of a harmless joke turned into what seems like a full-on beef.
