Akon caused a frenzy on Instagram when he commented on one of 21 Savage's posts over the weekend. The 24-year-old rapper shared a photo of him walking in the rain with an umbrella last month and captioned the snap with "Trust Nobody."
While it's unclear who Savage's referring to, Akon reacted to the post by leaving a shady comment that simply read, "trash." The comment seemed bizarre for some fans, but according to MediaTakeOut, it stems from fact that the "Smack That" hitmaker once hooked up with Amber Rose, who is now dating the young rapper.
The site claims to have "been hearing for MONTHS that Amber Rose had a previous ROMANTIC relationship with rapper AKON - and that it ended badly." A so-called source close to Amber tells the site that "Akon wanted to keep a 'friends with benefits' style relationship with her - but she told him NO."
"Well now Akon is taking out his frustrations - on Amber's new man, Rapper 21 Savage," continues the news outlet, before citing the insider as saying that the 44-year-old R'n'B singer "is blaming 21 [Savage] for not letting him smash."
21 Savage hasn't responded to Akon's comment. But some Instagram users were quick to defend Amber's current beau and slammed the "Lonely" hitmaker, with one user saying, "you to old to be hating on lil n***as nobody even listen to your music anymore."
"Damn akon remember when u were relevent? Me neither," one wrote, while another said, "You were old when I was young, lol, wtf you doin [Akon]... #growuppeterpan." There's also someone who told Akon to "watch your mouth."
"stfu talking bout 'trash' n***a you bout as relevant as @souljaboy," read another comment. "Wtf @akon talking about," read one other. Some other comments included "when's the last time u put out a track?" and "do you even make music and s**t anymore lol, heard a few bangers from like 07' or somethin."
