Rumble, Young Man Rumble.
Soulja Boy swept through the game like a vicious hurricane when he unleashed his 2007 banger, “Crank That.” The poignant song and dance elevated his status from internet sensation to music’s rising star. Rather than crumble into obscurity after his monstrous hit, he continued to steamroll past the competition. He showcased his bravado on “Turn My Swag On” and made sweet talk with the ladies on “Kiss Me Through The Phone.”
The youngster is still bubbling on the streets after Drake gave his song “We Made It” the remix treatment. Later, he assisted the Queen of Rap, Nicki Minaj on “Yasss Bish”. Despite having several run-ins with some of your favorite rappers, Soulja’s resume isn’t bad to say the least. With a platinum album, and a Forbes list appearance all before the age of 24, it’s safe to say that Soulja should be proud of his career.
XXL wishes Soulja Boy a Happy Birthday.
