Soulja Boy’s rise to fame in 2007 was rather impressive and even arguably legendary, but in the years following, he’s become more known for his antics and his Love & Hip-Hop appearances than he has for his actual music. In fact, I can’t even name a Soulja Boy song since like, “Turn My Swag On.” What was that, 2009? 2010 maybe?
For his latest, the rapper/internet troll sat down with VladTV, and detailed some extraordinary situation that reportedly happened in 2008, where his home was invaded and he shot at a group of men.
“One n*gga run to the front door. I hop out, I start shooting, shot the n*gga,” he said with extreme animation. “Shot his ass. All the n*ggas run out the door. This n*gga on the floor. [I] walk up to this n*gga, take his mask off his head. Looked at, saw who it was. I’m like, ‘Damn.’ Shot his ass again. He screaming and sh*t. I shut the door.”
Because of how over-the-top and likely made up it sounded, the #SouljaBoyChallenge was born, with people sitting down in a similar fashion, and telling an equally incredulous story that they came up with. The results were hilarious, and included celebs like Joe Budden, Mike Epps, DC Young Fly and more!
