Nicki Minaj’s Powerhouse Set: “Dropping My Single On Wednesday”

Nicki Minaj invited Soulja Boy during Power 106's Powerhouse show in Los Angeles, to perform their collaboration “Yasss Bish!!!” as it was released two weeks ago.

Nicki Minaj Reveals New Single Release Date In “Yasss Bish” Featuring Soulja Boy: Listen

Nicki Minaj, tell 'em. In her new song “Yasss Bish,” she places a bid for the Los Angeles Clippers as Dr. Dre, Puff Daddy and Rick Ross did earlier this week.

Drake Remixes Soulja Boy’s “We Made It”: Listen

How does Drake create a New Year's anthem? Mostly by refusing to change. In a remix of Soulja Boy's "We Made It," he tweaks the cycling-class flow snatched from Migos' "Versace" to add a remorseful note here, cue a moment of silence there — for his non-competition, obviously — and reels through a list of…

Soulja Boy Is Back With A Highly Dubious New Song Called “She Twerkin’ Like Miley”: Listen

What happened to Soulja Boy? His music was never particularly high brow but "Crank That (Soulja Boy)" was an absolute jam and has the receipts to prove it. (Billboard ranked it as the 23rd most successful song of the 2000s). Unfortunately, I doubt this latest effort will meet with as much success. A new track…

“Whip My Hair” Songwriter Ronald Jackson Fires Back At Soulja Boy

Listen to Jukebox's new response rap over the "Whip My Hair" track below—well,…

Soulja Boy Brags That He Wrote Willow Smith’s “Whip My Hair”

Poor Soulja Boy—his mind-numbing, dimwitted singles "Pretty Boy Swag" and "Speakers Going Hammer" stiffed in the charts last year, while his third LP The DeAndre Way crashed, burned and burst into a cloud of massive fail dust when it debuted at #90 on the Billboard Top 200 last month. To make up for it, he'…

Ciara Gives Soulja Boy’s “Pretty Boy Swag” A Female Overhaul

Why would "Ride" diva Ciara even bother to overhaul Soulja Boy's already flawless masterpiece "Pretty Boy Swag" (witness the poetry: "Pretty boy swag, 'aaaay, pretty boy swag, 'aaaay, pretty boy swag, 'aaaay, pretty boy swag, 'aaaay!")? Well, it's pretty clear she subscribes to the notion that if you're going to latch onto someone else's song,…

Soulja Boy Deprives Twitter Of His Profound Wisdom, Deletes Account

Folks, we're not entirely sure at this point what's more depressing—Soulja Boy Tell 'Em's music itself (see: the atrocity that is the video for "Pretty Boy Swag") or the fact that the setting-the-bar-even-lower rapper was apparently earning $10,000 a tweet on Twitter. We say "was" since MTV UK now reports that the 19-year-old has deleted…
