"Wasn't a diss. All I meant was that I was proud to have inspired an artist like him who is flourishing like he is. He said it himself that he was inspired by me so it was nothing new but now sh**'s weird now. He should've responded with a song if he wanted to take it there."
Netizens have reacted to the potential feud between the two artists.
