It looks like Soulajboy wants to put his nightmarish past few months behind him. In a new video posted on Twitter, the maligned rapper does his best to squash his many ongoing feuds, including his highly publicized beef with Chris Brown.

“I just want to send an apology. Over the past couple of months I’ve been acting out, I’ve been wilding out, and at the end of the day it’s not about who starts the beefs, it’s about who ends them,” he says in the video. 

Soulja goes on to explain that he's been acting out in public after learning that his mother has been hospitalized (she'll be fine, he says), and that she wouldn’t be proud of his actions as of late. And to prove that he’s serious about making peace, Soulja ends the video by extending the ultimate olive branch to his enemies: “I want to make music with Chris Brown, Yachty, Quavo, everybody."

It's no secret that Soulja has been on one the past few months, picking fights with everyone from Lil Yachty to Shia LaBeouf. But his feud with Brown—which exploded after the "Crank That" rapper liked a photo of Brown's ex Karrueche Tran on Instagram, sparked a vicious back-and-forth between the two super stars, who hurled insults and threats at one another over social media. Things got mega-weird on on Tuesday night when video came out that showed Soulja involved in a possible altercation in Compton. At first, it appeared that he was being robbed, but he later posted a video of himself, walking through the hood while throwing more shots at Breezy.

One person who didn't get the memo regarding Soulja's mea culpa was Adrien Broner, the boxer turned fight promoter tasked with setting up a boxing match between Brown and Soulja. Minutes after Soulja waved the white flag, Broner took to Instagram to announce that a fight had been set for March. "It's going down in March they both getting prepared for the epic fight of the beginning of the year@chrisbrownofficial VS @souljaboy2017 Tickets will be available shortly.... I will let y'all know the location and specific date soon!!!!! #StayTuned #CeleberityBoxing#AboutBillionsPromotions #Cbreezy#Soulja," he wrote. We expect that IG psot to de deleted any second.

As for Soulja, it's unclear exactly what made him have a full change of gears, but it sounds like he's ready to put all of the noise behind him. Whether or not the people he's beefed with feel the same, way remains to be seen.
