DaBaby performs onstage during the 2020 MTV Video Music Awards, broadcast on Aug. 30, 2020.

DaBaby has no beef with JoJo Siwa.

The rapper's "Beatbox" freestyle, with a line name-dropping the Dance Moms alum, raised some questions over the weekend -- but it turns out DaBaby was just using her name in a play on words.

"N----, you a b----/ JoJo Siwa, b----/ She let the wrong n---- get rich," DaBaby rhymes on the track. In the "Beatbox" video, he holds up a photo of a smiling Siwa.

Some fans had guessed why DaBaby dropped the Siwa line, while others apparently took it as an insult to the 17-year-old, one that seemingly came out of nowhere and had both stars' names trending on Twitter and Google.

After having a laugh -- "I love Twitter bruh," he tweeted -- DaBaby cleared the air on Sunday (Feb. 21).

"my 3 year old princess is your number 1 fan. I bought her every product you have out. She think she you," DaBaby tweeted to Siwa. "Don’t let em trick you into thinking id ever have a problem with you. My word play just went over their heads."

"All love on my end shawty, Keep shinning!" DaBaby wrote.

And in reply to a joke he spotted on Twitter, he said, "I don’t 'Siwa' they so mad either bae."

On his Instagram Stories, DaBaby added, "Y'all MFs sick lol. Y'all ok w/ that child being tricked into thinking I got a problem with her, WE F--- WIT YOU JOJO."
