It all seems to stem from interaction with Cuban Doll, 21.
Cuban Doll was dating Chief Keef's cousin and rapper Tadoe at the time she appeared in a video with Tekashi. While she only pops up and the end of the video, Tadoe didn't like seeing his woman alongside Tekashi. Doll alleged that Tadoe beat her after she appeared next to Tekashi from the hospital.

A video of Tekashi and the Glo Gang associate speaking on FaceTime surfaces. In the video, Tadoe tells Tekashi to lose Cuban Doll's number, threatening the rainbow-haired rapper with the warning, "I kill people." Fueling the argument further.
