Genasis’ message to Cole came on Thursday, April 9, on Instagram.
It been more than 24 hours and my boy @21savage ain’t want smoke lol …Now dats done I’m finna see what @keyshiacole was talkin bout 👀 #quarantine,” wrote Genasis next to a photo of himself, which received over 52,000 likes.
Most of his followers seemed to find the post humorous, and a bunch left laughing emojis underneath. Some are also excited about the possibility of the rapper and singer going at it, either in a battle or in another online exchange.
Petty and I ❤️ it! 🤣🤣,” another person wrote.
While someone else wrote, “Grabs popcorn, kettle to be exact.
But there were also some people who didn’t seem all that excited about Genasis’ challenge, and they told him to back off.
“Leave Keyshia aloneeee 😂😂😂,” someone pleaded.
“U gone make Keyshia deactivate her page 😩😩😩,” another person warned.
That last comment had to do with Cole eventually removing her social media accounts after Genasis created a song called “Never Knew” that parodied her classic ballad “Love.”
Genasis never got clearance from Cole to do the song, hence the online beef they had.
“I ain’t never gone listen to @KeyshiaCole song the same anymore 😭🤣,” wrote one of Cole’s fans on social media when his song dropped
Exactly. Not cool,” Cole wrote back.
21 Savage comes into play because he sang “Love” on Instagram earlier this month, as well as other R&B cuts. Genasis then took to his Instagram Story and wrote, “You have a beautiful voice, bro. I say we have a sing-off.”
The Shade Room then posted his message and asked who would win the battle. That’s when Cole jumped into the comments and wrote, “@21Savage.”
“Don’t start wit me again 😈,” Genasis responded.
“Never ‘Started with you’ sir. 😂Now scram. Do the sing off,” Cole wrote back.
On Wednesday, April 8, Genasis called out 21 Savage again by posting a video of himself singing Mariah Carey‘s “Always Be My Baby” while dancing in his chair enthusiastically.
KING OF R&B 👑 PERIOD POOH! Lol @21savage U don’t want no smoke 💨,” Genasis captioned the video.
Savage hasn’t responded to him yet.
