So, I was lollygagging on Twitter (half my job, half bullshitting) minding my timeline’s business when I saw “Soulja Boy” in the trending column. One of the possibilities was his reported beef with Nintendo.


Toggling between morbid and messy, I curiously clicked on the name and realized he recently appeared on The Breakfast Club. Turns out, Soulja Boy, née DeAndre Cortez Way, is coming for Drake. And once you come for Aubrey, you go viral. Ask Meek Mill and Pusha T how they know.

Soulja asked the hosts why he believes Meek had a bigger comeback in 2018 than he did, and DJ Envy mentioned his return to freedom, coupled with the Drake beef.

In full Leo peacocking form, the rapper stood up and walked around the studio to point out the sheer ridiculousness of what the hosts were implying.

Then, the ultimate moment came when Soulja claimed he “taught [Drake] everything he knows.”


“That’s my bar! He copied my whole fucking flow!” as Charlamagne had a live “come to Jesus” moment realizing, “That’s ‘Kiss Me Through The Phone!’”


Fun Leo fact (because one of a Leo’s favorite things is telling everyone just how much of a Leo they are): Soulja Boy and I share the same birthday. I usually brag about Jackie Onassis (we called that lady “ranch” because she was dressin!), but this person was also born the day I was born. These are my confessions.


Oh, and Soulja referred to “Degrassi” as “DeGeneres” and I laughed through tears for 10 straight minutes.

Ray J isn’t the only one pushing his products on Power 105.1. Soulja also took this opportunity to promote the controversial SouljaConsole, as well as his SouljaWatch.


Soulja also came for Tyga and Kanye, by the way. You know, rapper shit.
