Well, the two got embroiled in a very random but ultimately nasty feud this weekend. Here's what happened:

This week, Lil Nas went on Instagram Live and joked about having an upcoming collaboration with Boosie.

"So I've been working on this song with Boosie, bro. I have this song — it's gonna come out," Lil Nas said.

Anti-gay text, including, "Stop trolling me, f*ggot, u a whole bitch playing with a gangsta"

The controversy eventually spawned some viral reactions on Twitter:

"Who the fuck are we to make a comment about somebody else's life? Who are you?" Mike said to Boosie. "What happened to you that you think you're somebody who can make a comment about somebody else's life? ... I realized about myself, sometimes I have to say, ‘Fuck, I’m wrong.’”
