Looks like it’s Soulja Boy’s turn to feel the wrath of the recession. According to HitsDailyDouble, SB’s sophomore album, iSouljaBoyTellEm, is on pace to sell approximately 35,000 copies in its first week.
Meanwhile, Plies’ Da REAList, who also hit stores last week, is poised to move roughly 90k. In related news, the Atlanta-based rapper recently apologized for his explicit behavior. ” Over the past few months, I’ve had a chance to meet a lot of my fans face to face and it made me realize that I got a large fan base of kids that look up to me,” he told the Associated Press. “I have a greater responsibility to the kids that want to be like Soulja Boy (and) I need set a positive example for them.”
SB who is known for sparking a dance craze across young America with his hit “Crank That (Soulja Boy),” was criticized for the song’s line “Superman that hoe.” The 18-year-old rapper has also been shown urinating off a balcony and blowing his nose into a hundred dollar bill on his popular YouTube channel. -Bruce Moses
