Celebrities have some huge egos so it’s not that surprising that they get into some messy feuds. It’s even less surprising that the newest feud involves Chris Brown. The singer has publicly gotten into it with rapper and reality star, Soulja Boy. Now, they will be fighting it out on pay-per-view in March. So how did things to get this point? Here are 10 things to know about Chris Brown and Soulja Boy’s Feud.

It seems like these two make up and fight every other day. On January 10, Soulja Boy made a video on Instagram claiming that there is no longer any beef between the two. “Chris is my brother, man,” he said. “We been on tour. We got songs together. Brothers fight. Sometimes brothers fight.” He went on to say he just wants to “shake hands and keep it moving” after the fight.

Training a singer to fight might have made Tyson get in touch with his musical side. He made a diss track called “It’s Going Down” and then made a video on Instagram showing a little preview of the song. The song might feature Chris Brown as well.
