Seven Things Soulja Boy Has Taken Credit for This Year
Soulja Boy won’t rest until Hall of Fame level respect is put on his name.
With nearly 15 years in the game, millions of records and ringtones sold and an undeniable claim of being one of, if not, the first artist to capitalize off YouTube when it was itself a fledgling phenomenon, the “Crank Dat” rapper has several notches under his belt. While some rappers let their work speak for itself, Drako is not one to be silent about his accomplishments, whether they in his head or actual fact.
SB is not averse to making bold, sometimes unverifiable, claims. Like the time in 2019 when he alleged, he was hand-delivered the first ever iPhone from Apple CEO Steve Jobs himself on the “Crank Dat” video shoot. “He walked up to me with the first ever iPhone in a box,” SB said in an interview with BET. “He give me the phone. I take the phone out the box. I grab the phone, and within like two seconds of me grabbing the phone, it fell out my hand and broke to pieces. The first ever iPhone, bruh.”
And, let’s not forget about the time in 2016 when he claimed to have inked a $400 million deal. Then there was the time he was reportedly caught in a lie about purchasing a $55 million jet for his 21st birthday.
This year, the now Cali-based rapper has been taking it up a notch. In the past four months, he made some wild claims including bullish statements about his impact on fashion, technology and even Drake’s career. At this point, its hard to tell whether Big Drako, who recently inked a new deal with Virgin Records, is trolling, delusional or really rap’s version of Elon Musk.
Here are seven things Soulja Boy has taken credit for in 2021 alone.
