Dave East was not a fan of Lil Nas X dressing up as Nicki Minaj for Halloween — and hopped on Instagram to express his disgust.
“And y’all was mad at me about this n*gga,” Dave East wrote alongside an Instagram post of Lil Nas X’s Halloween costume. “Bati mon bun up!!!!” he wrote in a separate post, adding, “I gotta move to Jamaica, @PopcaanMusic on my wayyyyy chubble.”
Lil Nas X caught wind of East’s comments and clapped back:
“It’s ‘batty man’ n*ggas can’t even be homophobic the proper way smh butchering the hell out of the patois,” replied Lil Nas X, adding, “Bro I don’t bother a soul in this industry. All I do is tweet and make bangers. Leave me alone Damn.”
The rapper put 50 Cent on blast, who also posted photos of Nas’ costume, captioning them, “What the f*ck? Nikki, come get him!”
Nas replied, “Why u in Barb business?”

That’s exactly why Dave East’s braids won’t go past the nape of his neck. Just homophobia and vibes.
