Who is Soulja Boy?
In September 2007, his single "Crank That" reached number one on the US Billboard Hot 100. The single was initially self-published on the internet, and it later became a number-one hit in the United States for seven non-consecutive weeks starting in September 2007. On August 17 Way was listed at number 18 on the Forbes list of Hip-Hop Cash Kings of 2010 earning $7 million for that year.
Way has currently released three studio albums and one independent album: his debut studio album Souljaboytellem.com was certified platinum by the RIAA. However, his next two albums, iSouljaBoyTellem and The DeAndre Way did not match the commercial success of his debut, the latter only selling 100,000 copies, despite the success of several singles across both albums, such as "Kiss Me Thru the Phone" and "Turn My Swag On" and "Pretty Boy Swag". This was mainly due to negotiation problems with Interscope Records which meant a limited amount of records were made available to the public.
