“He Stole My Whole Flow” Soulja Boy Goes On Tirade, Accuses Rappers of Biting His Style

Soulja Boy said y’all are going to respect his influence tuh-day! During his interview with The Breakfast Club, Soulja discussed his influence over the years and artists who owe him their careers.

During an interview with The Breakfast Club, Soulja Boy was asked who had a bigger comeback. While the rest of TBC suggested Meek Mill did, due to his beef with Drake, Soulja nominated himself, citing “he taught Drake everything he knew”.



The receipts don’t lie. While Drake has since developed his own style, his first single ‘Miss Me’ credits Soulja Boy as a writer. The opening bars of the song are ripped straight from Soulja’s ‘What’s Hannenin’, released in 2007. Earlier in the interview, Soulja discussed his influence on new-age rappers who gained their fame using his blueprint. Reminiscing over the times older rappers would say “Soulja Boy killed hip-hop”, he had this to say:

“When I first came in I got it the worst though. I got it the worst though — from Ice T, from Snoop Dogg, from all the OGs…Now, look at everybody collabing — they love the new generation. I had to take them bullets. Everybody doing what I did. They laughed at me and now I’m being shunned. “

“Ye ain’t no Walt Disney”

Soulja Boy also discussed his other business endeavors. Not beholden to the music industry, Soulja has invested in himself by releasing a game console. When Charlamagne remarked that people are saying his consoles are counterfeit, Soulja made an argument in his defense.

“They always hate on a Black entrepreneur. They’ll give props to the Asians at Nintendo, the White people at XBOX, the White people at Playstation. But a Black entrepreneur, a rapper, the first rapper to come out with his own video game, they gon say ‘It’s counterfeit!’ and its this-and-that and sh*t on me. But Imma keep striving and doing my thing because I made $250,000 in one day.”

Venturing into business for himself, Soulja Boy is among the many rappers who have non-music endeavors. During the interview, Soulja drew comparisons to Kanye West, to which he was not impressed.

After this interview made the rounds, Famous Dex and Soulja Boy got into a heated argument on IG Live.

It’s not exactly clear what caused the beef between the two, but it could stem what what Soulja Boy said earlier in his interview. Laying claim to the reasons for today’s artist blueprint, Famous Dex was named as one of the faves who copied Soulja’s style. For now, the two are leaving their beef on the ‘gram, but Dex has threatened to pull up. We’ll see if that happens. Famous Dex is currently in Australia, relaxing before Sound Splash Festival in New Zealand.

#BBHMM: The Game’s Royalties Seized Until $7.4 Million Judgment Paid

mm

Published

on

The Game’s attempt to avoid paying a $7M judgment after losing a sexual assault case has been put to a halt by a judge. Ruling in favor of Priscilla Rainey, who accused the rapper of sexual battery, a judge has seized the royalties of The Game’s catalogue until the debt is paid.

In 2015, Rainey lodged a complaint that the rapper assaulted her, forcing his hand beneath her dress to touch her bare genitals and buttocks. While The Game denied these allegations in court and on social media, the judge ruled in Rainey’s favor that he should pay $7.4 million to make amends. Approaching the court after months had passed without receiving any payment, Priscilla was determined to get what she owed from her abuser. The battle for restitution against the “How We Do” rapper began March 1st 2018, when Rainey filed documents demanding financial records.

Looking to prove The Game had been hiding money to avoid paying the judgment, Rainey hired several private investigators that stated he’d diverted millions. In addition to hiding cash, the investigation uncovered he’d acquired assets under pseudonyms controlled by himself and his business management. Now, with a new ruling, The Game has been informed that his royalties will be seized by Priscilla until the $7.4 million balance is paid.

According to court documents, “commission, royalties, contract receivables, deferred compensation, income, wages, payroll, salary, and accounts receivable” are all up for grabs. Should The Game attempt to disobey the court’s decision, he could be found in contempt of court and face some jail time.

So So Deaf: Jermaine Dupri Critiques the State of Female Rap

mm

Published

on

During an interview, Jermaine Dupri was asked by two hosts to name his favorite female rapper. Believing he’d list Megan Thee Stallion or Cardi B, Dupri’s response caught both the hosts and music aficionados off guard. Comparing the current roster of popular femcees to “strippers”, Dupri’s glaring act of misogyny has gotten him checked by the artists themselves.

For decades, airwaves have been flooded with male artists rapping about their sexual prowess, bevy of hos, material expenditures, and sale of drugs. But Jermaine Dupri doesn’t find fault with the repetitive, and occasionally elementary, lyrics of his peers. His ire was directed toward women whose bars are about celebrating their bodies, turning up in the club, and dominating men. Failing to note the similarities in what content is released by both men and women in the rap game, Dupri posed a weak argument that female rap lacks lyrical diversity.

As pointed out in Cardi’s response video, there are plenty of female rappers that don’t write about their bodies at all, they simply don’t receive equal support. And as the acting CEO of So So Def, you’d think Jermaine Dupri would take the initiative to seek out talent that raises what he believes is the bar. But no, the “Grammy award winning songwriter and producer” has no female rapper signed to his label aside from Da Brat and Tyeler Reign. Tyeler is the winner of the fifth season of The Rap Game who unsurprisingly still raps about money and designer labels, the very things Dupri would find unimpressive.

Female rappers have been vocal in their disagreement of Dupri’s piss-poor analysis. Both Doja Cat and Cardi B made statements disagreeing with his comments. Ari Lennox even dropped a diss track as a response to his ignorance. But the best rebuttals have been references of Dupri’s track record. Twitter users have been quick to remind us that JD has a history of dismissing the career trajectories of women with potential to be powerhouses in the industry. Perhaps after this wake up call, Jermaine Dupri will take a bit of Doja Cat’s advice and look for the artists he wants to uplift.
