It started innocently enough, with Yachty's profession of interest in making an EDM track, but devolved pretty quickly when deadmau5 rejected the idea of a collaboration without even being asked.

Deadmau5 tried to clear the air by offering to join Yachty for a game of PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds, but the rapper fired back with a different suggestion.

Deadmau5 didn't take to kindly to it, tweeting about the online altercation into the night.

Hilariously, plenty of other people have weighed in on Lil Yachty's EDM ambitions — including James Van Der Beek's fake What Would Diplo Do Diplo account.
i dont think he was asking you he said he wanted to do a big song— Diplo (@_diplo_) May 14, 2018
Yachty hasn't given up his EDM dreams, though. He shared his email address and is currently soliciting beats from willing collaborators.

So far, he seems to be getting a wealth of support for the idea.
