American rapper and record producer DeAndre Cortez Way, known professionally as Soulja Boy Tell ‘Em or simply Soulja Boy, link up with this new audio release tagged “Casamigos“.
Whether hip-hop fans realize it or not, Soulja Boy changed the game since his debut over a decade ago. In many ways, he was the first rapper to come up in the age of the Internet, and pioneered trends that artists of all kinds use today.
Before there were TikTok dances, there was the Soulja Boy dance. In 2007, he released his debut single “Crank That (Soulja Boy)” and created an iconic dance that went along with it. His debut album Souljaboytellem.com was released soon afterward and featured hits such as “Donk” and “Yahhh!”
His follow-up album, iSouljaBoyTellEm, contained other viral rap hits including “Kiss Me Thru the Phone” and “Turn My Swag On.” He continued to release mixtapes throughout the 2010s.
Soulja Boy’s debut coincided with the rise of YouTube as a platform. The video streaming site first launched in 2005, and Soulja Boy has claimed since then that he was the first rapper to release his videos on YouTube. In May 2021, he shared proof of his claim on Twitter. He posted his first video on YouTube just three months after the website launched in 2005 and released his debut album with a major label less than two years later
