Want To Know Why Soulja Boy Is So Wack?

| 57 Comments

Maybe because he started listening to Hip-Hop a week ago. See, as a purveyor of the direction present and future Hip-Hop generations are going, I know very well you have to be receptive to the stylistic changes and look towards the appeal that's very much there. Even if it differs from your own personal preferences. Because unlike what a few disgruntled commenters aggie that their favorite rapper got shorted a Cig or two would have you to believe, preferences don't get factored in the critiquing process. (Much, much more on that later). Yet even still, an artist is only strong as their influences allow them to be. Everybody borrows and gets inspired from the next man. Before Jay-Z was boasting about his wealth that rivaled small countries, he was studying Big Daddy Kane's every move in the streets. If André 3000 never took his talents to South Mars, half of your favorite eclectic personalities would cease to exist. And for every bit of Grammy gold Eminem takes home every year, he'll be the first one to let you know that Redman and Masta Ace paved the way for him to even get to the red carpet. So while the aforementioned legends had legends to shadow the early stages of their career, Soulja Boy came up in the era where every able mouth tested their tongue at rapping and weren't afraid to broadcast it to the world, no matter how inadequate their talent may have been. Hell, SB damn near spearheaded the movement with his YouTube sensation act that still see countless copycats to this day. And if you're wondering why his sound hasn't progressed or hasn't matched even coming close to duplicating another culture imprint like "Crank Dat!," then maybe his top 25 albums of all-time list that he shared with Complex is an indicator, which includes several albums nary even a year old.
