Teyana Taylor and Rihanna Beef on Twitter

G.O.O.D. Music singer warns Rih Rih, "Don't play with me."

Published September 24, 2013

Teyana Taylor quickly became a nationwide trending topic today when she stirred the waters in which Rihanna's "Navy" is anchored.

Two weeks ago, the G.O.O.D. Music rapper/singer posted an Instagram vid of her singing Anita Baker's "Caught in the Rapture." Earlier this morning, Rihanna posted to the same social media site a clip of her hairstylist Yusef singing the same segment of the song while wearing a long wig and a snapback — a style that's become a signature of sorts for Taylor.

TT allowed no time for that to marinate. She responded via Twitter with, "Don't play wit me @rihanna f--k all this industry s--t, YOU & I know each other VERY well. Throwing subs 4 wat? u got my #, don't show off."

Rih's super fans, who call themselves the "Navy," also got in on the war of words, to which Taylor responded, "y'all could bully everybody else & get away wit that s--t but that s--t ain't gone work ova here. so y'all could miss me with that NAVY s--t."

In the begining of the spat, Rihanna's timeline was mostly out of the direct light: "Screaming in an empty room! #dontfeedtheanimals." Rih refused to directly mention Taylor until she posted a picture comparing her net worth ($90 million) to the Harlem-born singer's income ($500,000).

Taylor hit back at the slight with her own brand of venomous humor.

"90 million dollars & 90 million n----s diving in that b---h box," Taylor tweeted after changing the photo on her Twitter page to feature a photoshopped image of her punching Rihanna in a boxing match. It's no accident that Taylor used the infamous photograph of Rihanna following her 2009 assault at the hands of Chris Brown.
