Clever has proven that patience is indeed one of his virtues, months after Yelawolf name-dropped him and a ton of other rappers on a track ‘Bloody Sunday Freestyle,’ the Republic Records signee has finally responded to the diss track.
Yelawolf also dissed Post Malone, Machine Gun Kelly, G-Eazy and many others on his ‘Bloody Sunday Freestyle,’ which was released back in March 2019, most of which responded immediately, and now after about a year, Clever made his thoughts about the record know during an interview with Genius.
“We’re from the same city. Can I cuss on here? Let me say f-ck Yelawolf first off,” you said when asked about his thoughts on the song and Yelawolf. He started.
“I really don’t like to talk about it too much because I’ve had to deal with it my whole career. But there was a time when we had a mutual friend. It’s a very small town, 30,000 people. So word gets around if one is talking mess about the other. So I get a phone call from two different people that I’m close to that were also kind of close to him at the time and was basically saying, “He’s talking sh-t about you. I asked him about you. He said he was tired of hearing your name, and blah, blah, blah.” This was a long time ago,” he said.
“So when I started making some noise around 2018, 2019 is when he started his sh-t again. But he would get drunk, call me on the phone, and talk his little sh-t. But I’m a battle rapper, and lyrically, I feel like I could eat alphabet soup and sh-t better lyrics than Yelawolf. So I feel like to out-rap him on a song would be like slapping your sister and feeling like a tough guy. I just don’t see no point in it. I think that you can throw rocks at the moon, but they don’t reach. I’m a little above him at this point. He’s a little irrelevant and I’m not going to do anything to try to bring him back to the light. So talk all you want.
I think for him, it wasn’t just me in the record. He was talking about Post, he was talking about MGK, he was talking about G-Eazy. It was all white rappers. I think for a white rapper to come out and make a battle record about all the white rappers in the game, it’s just so very corny. Get a life, dude. But I don’t want to give him any more shine than that, but it is what it is.”
Clever recently released a star-studded album ‘Craze‘ which featured appearances from Chris Brown, Post Malone, Juice Wrld, Lil Baby, Lil Wayne and Isaiah Lyric.
As for Yelawolf, the Alabama-born rapper recently announced that he will be releasing four albums in April, one album per week, starting on the 9th.
