TMZ caught Soulja Boy out and about on Thursday (Jan. 17) in New York City, where the viral celebrity discusses how he’s the hottest MC in hip-hop today, and continues to take shots at some of his contemporaries.
“I’m the hottest rapper in the game, bro,” The “Crank Dat” musician says. “Kanye West talking about ‘he Walt Disney’… you ain’t sh*t… I made a million dollars in a week.” Of course, this is in reference to the video game console that bares his name.
He continues by discussing that the grind never stops for him, and if it wasn’t for his influence, the Internet boom, streaming and more probably wouldn’t be as prolific.
“This is natural hustle man, I’m the reason music is digital right now,” he continues. He also says that his recent headline-making comments aren’t marketing, but the real deal.
“Are you serious? This is real life, real sh*t,” he queries. “This not no marketing, bro. I kept it real. I told people I had the biggest comeback of 2018, and n***as wanna talk about Tyga.” He concludes by saying that he’s thrilled that Travis Scott is not only performing at the Super Bowl, but also that he “took Tyga’s b***h” Kylie Jenner.
2019 is wild.
