Cheetos Just Dissed Doritos’ New ‘Flamin’ Hot’ Flavor

If you haven’t heard, Doritos recently dropped its own Flamin’ Hot chip, and Chester Cheetah was not too pleased.

Dropping a diss track titled, “Flamin’ Hot Diss Track,” Chester made his hip hop debut in savage fashion.

“Come on Doritos, you can’t rep the Flamin’ Hot name, watch your step, I’m the OG in the snack game,” Chester said menacingly. “I’m Flamin’ Hot, and you’re flamin’ not.”

The diss comes on the heels of Doritos’ Super Bowl commercial, where Chance the Rapper masterfully remixed the Backstreet Boys’ “I Want it That Way.”

Of course, this is all just a cute commercial package, and no real beef exists between the chip brands, seeing how they’re both owned by Frito-Lay.

So just like most cases in the hip hop world, this is just fake beef, but it’s fun. Hopefully Chance the Rapper claps back.
