DaBaby Explained That JoJo Siwa Lyric And I THINK I Get It Now

"I love Twitter bruh."

OK, let's start from the beginning. A few days ago, superstar rapper DaBaby released a new song "Beatbox Freestyle" that seemingly dissed JoJo Siwa. Yes, you read that sentence correctly.

So, according to Entertainment Tonight, there's an explanation for the lyric that has almost nothing to do with, er, DaBaby calling JoJo Siwa a "bitch."

ET explains that since DaBaby's real name is Jonathan, and he uses "Siwa" as a twist on "See why," him rapping "JoJo Siwa" is shorthand for "Jonathan see why." Get it?

DaBaby himself seemed to suggest this was the case, too, using "Siwa" in a similar way in a Tweet after the initial uproar took place.

I β€œSiwa” I’m not like the rest of you niggas .πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

He actually did it twice.

DaBaby also Tweeted directly at Siwa and explained that his "3 year old princess is [her] number 1 fan," and that his "word play went over" peoples' heads: "All love on my end shawty, Keep [shining]! πŸ’"

@itsjojosiwa my 3 year old princess is your number 1 fan. I bought her every product you have out. She think she you.πŸ˜‚ Don’t let em trick you into thinking id ever have a problem with you. My word play just went over their heads. All love on my end shawty, Keep shinning! πŸ’

All in all, seems like it was probably a misunderstanding. In summation, DaBaby put it best...

πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ I love Twitter bruh.
