An epic rap battle between Kanye West thriving mentees A$AP Rocky, A$AP Bari, Theophilus London, and Ian Connor went down in Paris last night, and apparently it wasn't about music at all- but about rape.
Ian Connor - member of A$AP Mob, model, and stylist most notably associated with Kanye West as well as Wiz Khalifa and others - came under fire in April after a woman publicly accused him of rape. Since then, up to seven women have come forward accusing the popular muse of serial sexual assault.
Those professionally involved with Connor were noticeably (and disappointingly) silent, except for this one tweet by Theophilus London, declaring "ian innocent."
But oh, have the tides turned! The two month old tweet has since been deleted, and yesterday, this was the first shot fired in what would become a social media sh*tstorm: "Every time I see u I'm gonna f*ck you up, Evrytime u dirty f*cking rapist @souljaian #Eveytime."
Next up: A$AP Bari wanted a piece of the action, too.
He even got into it with Playboi Carti of A$AP Mob in a random parking lot.
While no one's sure what exactly motivated the tides to change so quickly and so violently, there's enough on social media to speculate to a good degree. Theophilus London sent out this tweet following the fight: "Kanye don't even want your ass around anymore. That's all you had left. I'm surprised at all anybody that still fuck w you ." In this round of tweets, London confirms that (at least part) of the motivation was due to "a girl [Ian Connor] did wrong."

A$AP Bari repeated the sentiments...
So of course Ian Connor didn't let those tweets off without his own accusations: "And @TheophilusL You Went Broke Last Year and Started Doing Herion Plus You A Whole Child Molester and I Got Physical Proof In My Phone," he tweeted.
Whew! I'm just stressed thinking about all of the events that transpired in one day. There's a lot of information in here, but nothing is clear. At all. We're all on red alert for a Kanye West tweet.
