Yeah, if it's a year after the fact then he's definitely trollin', especially considering that Steez is dead. He's just being a douche haha. Of course that's gonna hit Joey's sore spot though, who wouldn't get upset - your friend just died about a month ago and some foolio is playing games.
I would've just been like "Yo, I know you're just a goof but sit the fuck down right now homie. I just lost my brother so step off and go troll somethin worth your time."
Foolio - a perfect adjective
I think that's what he was gonna do initially then he just said no, fuck it, I'm better than you.
