“I found out me and @Smino got the same uncle and to think this ni*ga roasted the fuck out me when we first met,” reflects Zel. “He on the Curry side of the family.” On Smi’s end, he seemed to be in denial about the whole thing, all but guaranteeing that the next time they cross paths will feature yet another roasting edition, this one a family affair. “boi why @denzelcurry my cousin in real life,” writes Smi, prompting fans to encourage a collaboration between the pair of lyrical cousins.
