Hip Hop Vibe’s Hottest MCs in the Game: Soulja Boy

23 Oct

Soulja BoyNo one began 2009 with as much hype as Soulja Boy. Late last year, he released “Turn My Swag On” and “Kiss Me Thru the Phone.” Both of those songs took a long time to take off and Soulja Boy did appear to be the one hit wonder.

However, when the new year entered, both songs became hits. Soulja Boy spent the first half of 2009 promoting those singles as they peaked at number 19 and 3 on the Billboard Hot 100, respectively.

Most importantly, after dropping the one hit wonder label, Soulja Boy is now respected within the hip hop scene. This year, alone, Snoop Dogg has apologized to the young rapper for his previous negative comments and Eminem has revealed that he is a big Soulja Boy fan.

On top of all of that, Soulja Boy has caught the attention of hip hop heavyweights, Kanye West and Jay-Z. For his upcoming album, The DeAndre Way, Soulja Boy is expected to work with both artists. He is even expected to add some of his productions to Kanye West’s album.

Aside from the music, all of the praise that he has received has earned him a spot on this list. Before the end of the year, his album is coming and that may place him a notch or two higher than this.
