    • He was the first rapper who blew up off of YouTube .. but he wasnt actually the first rapper on YouTube..I was watching rappers on YouTube since the very beginning of YouTube lol.soulja know his audience is always the 10-14 age group so they dont be really knowing.

    • Ho of it wasn’t for Soulja you wouldn’t be on YouTube… He was the first music artist to upload to YouTube and the first person who went viral online… Know your black history

  1. Soulja Boy did pave the way for the new generation rappers whether you like him or not.

    • He is a disgrace to music and an anathema to his culture. All that follow him are brain dead fools.

    • Skills1ent boy you wouldn’t be on YouTube if it wasn’t for Soulja boy an that’s facts

    • +MrGoodyMusic Hilarious! Some this fascination with mindless idiotic entertainment has to end…

    • Jessica B. Fun? It was ignorant and degrading. What was fun about β€œSuperman that hoe”? You think kids should be listening to this hogwash? When I first heard the song in 07, I thought it was a parody, someone had to explain to me that it was an actual song.

    • Rap fell offff?…its super growing since the 80s what u mean fell off?…we litterally have sub genres in hip hop…like before it was just rap…now its mumble rap autotune rap, emo rap, hardcore rap, harmonize rap…come on….felll ooofff? In my @souljaboy voice

  2. its true , people keep trying to discredit the things that Bow wow and Soulja boy did to pave the way for these current artist and on the other hand praise people like Drake& other rappers who steal raps and people flow smh

  3. If Bow Wow is on your side, then you better rethink what your doing SouljaπŸ˜‚

    • Tokyo Drift is the best movie out of the franchise. I really hated with the Fast & Furious series turned out to compared to the early movies. It became more of an action movie rather than just about cars

    • I have seen tokyo drift countless times. I hate all the others cept the first two, but critics say the newer ones are better idk. They have become 007-ish and the next one might be in space, who knows

  4. Bow wow so wack he walking down the street …doing a interview…and pedestrians still bumping into his shoulder…and not saying excuse me…πŸ˜“…. damn.
