Soulja Boy Controversies:
Back in early February 2009, Soulja Boy challenged rapper Bow Wow to a race in their expensive sports cars. Both rappers drove Lamborghinis at the time. To throw fuel on the fire of their controversy, Soulja Boy claimed Bow Wow’s car was rented. Bow Wow proved he owned his car and a Twitter feud around the issue arose. Within a matter of days, both rappers sent diss songs to each other. Soulja Boy sent Bow Wow “F*ck Bow Wow.” Bow Wow sent Soulja Boy “What I Think About You.” Both rappers eventually settled their difference and in 2016, released a collaborative mixtape called “Ignorant Shit.”
In mid-April 2013, Soulja Boy took to Facebook to issue several death threats to rapper Chief Keef. Soulja Boy posted Keef’s phone number and asked fans to call Keef and let him know Soulja Boy was coming for him and he was armed with a gun. Soulja Boy kept posting and eventually Keef told him he was in London. Soulja Boy claimed that his social media accounts and email were hacked and he had not sent any of those messages. The two have since resolved their differences.
Soulja Boy Legal Issues:
On October 7, 2009, Way was arrested in Atlanta, Georgia, on one count of obstruction, a misdemeanor, for running from police when he’d been ordered to stop while filming a video in an abandoned house. The rapper was released on a $550 bond.
Soulja Boy Personal Life:
In June 2008, on DJ Cisco’s Urban Legend mixtape, legendary rapper Ice-T told Way to “eat a dick” and criticized Way for “killing hip-hop” and his song “Crank That” for being “garbage” compared to the works of other hip-hop artists such as Rakim, Das EFX, Big Daddy Kane and Ice Cube. The two then traded videos back and forth over the Internet. Kanye West defended Way by arguing that the younger artist created a new, original work for hip-hop. The feud was parodied in a 2010 episode of The Boondocks.
On December 30, 2008, Way was robbed and beaten in his home. The first reports from the scene said that the robbers were six masked men with AK-47s. However, the day after the incident, a video surfaced on the internet of two masked men claiming sole credit for the crime. In January 2009, Soulja Boy described the night to MTV News. He said came home very late at night after an album release party and was recording songs with friends when the robbers entered his home with their guns pointed at them. He claimed the robbers kicked in the door and pointed an AK-47 at his friend’s head.
On the night of March 22, 2011, Way’s younger brother, Deion Jenkins, was killed in a car crash.
In 2020, Soulja Boy had all of his face tattoos removed so that he could transition into roles in film and television. He got his first face tattoo when he was 16, much to his mother’s disapproval. He’s been talking about having them removed since 2016. He doesn’t want to be typecast as a gangster or drug dealer in acting roles and feels he would be if he kept them.
