Following a sea of social media backlash and memes (scroll down), DaBaby finally addresses the misunderstanding and clarifies his clever usage of “Siwa” on the “Beatbox” freestyle, not that he needed to.
@itsjojosiwa my 3 year old princess is your number 1 fan. I bought her every product you have out. She think she you.😂
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! 💝

Why did DaBaby include that Jojo Siwa line in his freestyle? 💀 Regardless of rhyme a 29 year old dissing a 17 year old doesn’t sit right with me pic.twitter.com/ZGzpYGbUQS

As most rap heads know, DaBaby wasn’t dissing Jojo. As Genius puts it, “DaBaby compares the tendencies of his opposition to JoJo. In response, he promises to make them remember not to mess with him. Here, “Siwa” functions as a homophone with “see why.”
On the freestyle Baby also references Stevie Wonder and T.I. Listen to “Beatbox” freestyle below.
