A Republican Congressman notorious for riling Democrats online instigated a Twitter war with rapper Lil Jon.
But the Atlanta-based rapper and record producer had no time for tomfoolery and shut the Congressman down.
Paul Gosar (R-Ariz.)—who won reelection to represent Arizona's 4th Congressional District last week—reached out to Lil Jon and boasted about his 69.69% win by incorporating the rapper's lyrics from his 2002 hit, "Get Low."
Gosar tweeted "69.69 damn that's fine"—which appeared to be a nod to one of the song's lyrics "3, 6, 9, damn you fine"—and tagged the rapper, asking:
"What say you @LilJon."
69.69 damn that’s fine. What say you @LilJon https://t.co/h3mTQ2Z8Xw— Paul Gosar (@Paul Gosar)1604862109.0
Gosar may have tried to "Get Low," but Lil Jon got even lower and came out on top with Monday's Twitter exchange.
The rapper retorted in all caps:
"DONT QUOTE MY SONGS BRUH. ON ANOTHER NOTE R You GONN HELP 45 PACK HIS SH*T UP."
Twitter was here for Lil Jon's fierce riposte.
Gosar refused to let it go and tweeted in response:
"I just talked to the club owner. He said calm down."
The Congressman then gave himself another pat on the back with another tweet commending his numbers.
Still nice. https://t.co/tA2zKqCu5r— Paul Gosar (@Paul Gosar)1604898637.0
According to the Daily Dot, the Congressman is planning to invite the incumbent President to stage a MAGA rally with supporters.
