Grammy-nominated rapper B.o.B. recently reflected on his "No Future" diss track aimed at Odd Future's Tyler the Creator and what initially sparked his verbal outburst.
Referencing Tyler's "Yonkers" record, B.o.B. said the initial jab was not as serious as people made it out to be.
"I feel like some people perceived it as a shot but I feel like people love to hate," B.o.B. explained in an interview referring to Tyler the Creator's jab. "When he said the line, my fans weren't coming at me like, 'B.o.B., he's dissing you, he's dissing you!' Nobody was saying that. So I feel there's some things people can take it. You can take it and just make whatever you want out of it. But I don't harbor any negative emotions at all." (The Source)
Following the track's release, Tyler downplayed B.o.B.'s disses.
"I Didn't Hear My Name Or Nothing About Any Wolves So. Eh.," hetweeted Friday (March 25).
"If It Was A Diss Tho, Crazy That I'm On His Radar. Didn't Know People Took Me So Serious. I'm Officially In The Music Business."
""@bobatl: I don't feel like I was dissed, I actually laughed when I heard the line." See, Yall Take It To Serious.." (Tyler the Creator's Twitter)
The song began bubbling across the Internet a few weeks ago.
Not everyone is an Odd Future fan. Rapper B.o.B. released a diss track Friday morning (Mar. 25) taking aim at the Los Angelesrap collective, on which the Atlanta rapper seethes, "Keep f**kin' with me you ain't gon have no future." "You see the sh*t I gotta deal with from these beginners?" B.o.B. asks on the beginning of "No Future." He closes out the track with, "Body blow, upper cut, I do more than bruise ya/Keep f*ckin with me you ain't gon have no future." (Billboard)
The track represents B.o.B.'s response to Tyler the Creator's "Yonkers" diss.
B.o.B took aim at the upstart on Friday (March 25) with a fiery dis track titled "No Future," a response to a line the California rapper issued on his breakout "Yonkers." "What you think of Hayley Williams?/ F--- her, Wolf Haley robbing 'em," Tyler raps on the song. "I'll crash that f---ing airplane that that f----t n---a B.o.B is in/ And stab Bruno Mars in his goddamn esophagus." (MTV)
