Five Things XXL Expects from Soulja Boy Now That He’s 21

First of all, XXL would once again like to wish Soulja Boy Tell ‘Em a happy birthday. SB turned 21 years old last Thursday (July 28). Yes, the young stunna who captured the hip-hop world by storm as a 17-year-old with his monster hit, “Crank That,” is all grown up. He can actually get into the clubs he’s been rapping about now…legally. But, let’s get real. Some of the knucklehead antics SB has gotten away with over the years won’t fly anymore. He’s a full-fledged man now. XXL gives advice to Soulja as he says goodbye to his life as a child.

Change your name…
Check your license, DeAndre Way. You’re no longer a Soulja Boy, you’re a Soulja Man. Soulja Boy told ‘em, now it’s time to Soulja Man to show ’em.

Leave the “Pretty Boy Swag” Alone…
It’s time to switch up your steez to that grown man swag, playboy. And no more doing them funny dances. Time to stick to the two-step, like the rest of us.

Be Careful Who You “Kiss Thru the Phone”
Them underage girls will kill you. Make sure to check IDs.

Trade in the Jewels
No self-respecting 21-year-old is allowed to rock a Super Mario Bros. chain. Time to make another visit to Jacob the jeweler.

Step Your Rap Game Up…
Time to step it up lyrically, homie. You are no longer “just a kid,” so no more passes.
