For the better part of the last month, Tyga and 21 Savage have been trading overt and subliminal shots with each other over Kylie Jenner. Tyga and Jenner have been linked together for years, and Tyga opened himself up for criticism and by rapping, “T nasty, ‘bout to catch a felony for it” on the 2015 track “Pleazer,” when Jenner was still under the age of 18. As it regards Atlanta’s 21 Savage, things heated up when he tweeted about having a crush on an unnamed “superstar chick” in early November.

Here’s a brief, chronological record of how an innocent tweet about a crush turned into an intense back and forth with threats of physical violence.

The mystery is removed when 21 Savage tweets a trio of heart-eyed emojis at Jenner along with her picture. Many speculate this was a response to a video Kylie posted on her Snapchat featuring Savage’s music in the background.

A snippet of a leaked version of Tyga rapping over 21 Savage’s “No Heart” leaks, with Tyga rhyming the phrase “Suckin dick for a Ferrari.” It’s widely assumed the Ferrari is a reference to Drake gifting Savage a six-figure sports car, and many have linked the snippet leak to Kylie.
