Soulja Boy’s Platinium in a Week Campaign!

21 11 2008

 

While other record labels and artists spend hundreds of thousands of dollars and even sometimes millions to promote and market abums, I find it so great that Soulja Boy does what they can’t in a grassroots setting.  It’s genius and amazing and actually faith for the music industry.  SELLING RECORDS can be done, you just have to connect with your fans!  BTW, this video is hillarious!  And, yes! I am a Soulja Boy fan, you don’t like it, FUCK YOU.  Stop coming to my blog.

Soulja Boy Comes Back!!!! Well He Explains Himself…

26 06 2008

 

I’ve been sitting back watching this Soulja Boy/Ice-T bullshit and really marking both sides points and moving on. Personally I think the whole thing is a load of crap with a couple of diamonds in between.  First off, Soulja Boy is a horrible rapper.  However, his model of success should be studied.  No one is breaking records the old way anymore.  The physical way of breaking a record now is by infiltrating all the forms of media, not just walking the streets.  Your presence has to be felt everywhere and you have to connect with your audience.  Soulja Boy has found a way to connect with his and he’s doing his thang!  Instead of calling him out, and telling someone who could be his son to EAT A DICK, Ice should have been focusing.  He apologized, ok cool.  Lil Soulja should have just kept it at that, but the young boy has grown nuts and came back.  I’m not hating, I just believe that he should have kept it at the come back video.  But, let me clarify myself.  Soulja Boy is a horrible rapper.  He single handedly made me stop liking “My Dougie” when I heard him on the remix.  I hope he evolves (seriously).  Ice needs to get over himself and be Ice.  Rap, pimp and play a cop on TV.  You opened up doors for us man.  I appreciate you!  Do you, this rap beef shit is corny now.

Here’s the news

(HipHopDx) 

 

Although many view Soulja Boy as a kid who made up a silly dance and got famous, the young artist has been doing a lot in the time between albums. He’s been producing, rhyming, collaborating and battling with Ice-T. Recently, he spoke on all the hoopla surrounding him.

“I’m sitting back in the cut. While I stop working, I’m still working,” he recently told MTV of his production. He’s cut tracks for himself, his protege and Bow Wow.

While he stays behind boards, he’s also got help from other producers for his upcoming album iSouljaBoy, something that didn’t happen on the first.

“The album is gonna be crazy. I got more features on there. The first album, I produced the whole album; second album I’m looking to work with different producers such as Polow Da Don. I might collab with artists such as Bow Wow andSean Kingston.”
 
For those who aren’t privy to the beef brewing between 
Soulja and Ice-T, a war of words has started. First, Ice claimed Soulja Boy ruined the culture and that the young man could “eat a dick.” Mr. Crank Dat came back with a video dis, laughing about Ice-T‘s age, his acting and relevancy [click to read].

Ice later released his own clip, where he apologized…sort of.

“I apologize Soulja Boy for telling you to eat a d*ck. That was just in anger. Because truthfully, a brother of my caliber shouldn’t be talking down on a youngster of your age,” Ice-T explained. “But as far as your music goes… it’s garbage! There are kids that go in the studio and really try to rap. That really sit down and write stuff. I’m talking about you are garbage! We got to get rid of that, man. Hip Hop has to last and it ain’t gonna last with you doing that Supaman bullshit.”

Soulja Boy retaliated with an animated video. As he put it, he is unafraid to go up against the O.G.

“I ain’t sugar-coat nothing. I ain’t back down. I ain’t scared of dude or nothing like that. I just told him how I felt when he spoke on me. This ain’t no beef or drama. I’m 17 years old and he’s I-don’t-know-how-old. I was defending myself.”

His new LP 
iSouljaBoy is set to be released in the Fall of 2008.
