Soulja Boy (Redd) appeared on SNL‘s “Weekend Update” set with Michael Che to give his thoughts about the government shutdown’s temporary ending, sparking an enthusiastic “Soulja Boy Crank That 2020” campaign and a deep dive into the inner workings of his video game company. “Without Big Soulja, there wouldn’t even be no Trump! I’m the first one that hustled to the top!”
“Truuuump!? Truuuuump!? The dude that got bodied by the popular vote. The dude who got beat by Nancy [Pelosi],” he said mimicking Soulja Boy’s iconic “Breakfast Club” monologue. Continuing to brag about his capabilities as a world leader, the rapper goes on to plug his Soulja Game, which is regarded as a “bootleg Nintendo.” The console apparently boasts the knock-off versions of Fortnite and Super Mario Bros., making the bit even more hilarious.
In reality, the newly crowned king troll has staked credit for collaboration albums, careers popping off, and just about everything else.
