    • Drew Millard (July 10, 2014). "Read the Wikipedia Page Soulja Boy Wrote About Himself When He Was 15". Vice.com. Retrieved July 11, 2014. "One of the best things about Wikipedia is you can go back and see earlier versions of wiki pages. For example, this is the first ever Wikipedia page for Soulja Boy, which was created by a pre-fame, then-15-year-old Soulja Boy. It's amazing (obviously), and its last bit is oddly prophetic."  (details)

    Controversies: Lupe Fiasco[edit]

    In 2010 during an interview with XXL, Soulja Boy explained that he wanted to rap without being overly complex, and then went on to say that he didn't want to be like Lupe Fiasco where "n*ggas don't understand what the f*ck I'm saying."[1] Fiasco responded with a series of rhymes on his twitter making fun of Soulja Boy's singles and then released the song S.L.R. (Super Lupe Raps), emphasizing metaphors and puns in its lyrics while specifically saying, "Soulja call it Super Lupe Lyrical/You can't understand nor mimic my miracles." while also expressing that new artists shouldn't be afraid to make intelligent lyrics.[2]

    Edit request from Teej1991, 12 September 2011[edit]

    The "Let's Be Real" Controversy section would be well served by the inclusion of a link ts reply. Hobbs is a US soldier and rapper who just came out with a Youtube video and song directed at Soulja Boy which is currently doing the rounds on the net. The video can be found here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iI7PifIpbQc

    Soulja Boy was found dead in hotel room. Early reports suggest food poisoning.

    Merger proposal[edit]

    The following discussion is closed. Please do not modify it. Subsequent comments should be made in a new section. A summary of the conclusions reached follows.
    The result was merge. --BDD (talk) 21:52, 28 December 2012 (UTC)

    I propose that Soulja Boy: The Movie be merged into Soulja Boy. I think that the content in the Soulja Boy: The Movie article can easily be explained in the context of Soulja Boy, and the Soulja Boy article is of a reasonable size in which a trimmed merging of Soulja Boy: The Movie will not cause any problems as far as article size or undue weight is concerned. Essentially, and because the film's release co-incided with Soulja Boy's October 18, 2011 arrest, it did not receive wide coverge in reliable sources. The only in-depth review I found was a negative one in DVD Talk. While my work on the film article resulted in it surviving AFD, one review... even with spotty pre-filming coverage... really does not meet the requirements set for film at WP:NF. At least here in the Soulja Boy article, it can be spoken of in context and has less of a chance to be returned to AFD for lacking separate notability. Schmidt, MICHAEL Q. 14:44, 21 June 2012 (UTC)

    • Support as initial AfD nominator. The movie seems to have been pretty low impact, and could better be addressed here. --BDD (talk) 18:39, 23 October 2012 (UTC)
    • Support. Had I seen the AfD, I'd have supported that deletion. Nothing really notable about the "film", nothing that couldn't be covered in a sentence or two here. Niteshift36 (talk) 19:06, 23 October 2012 (UTC)

    The above discussion is preserved as an archive. Please do not modify it. Subsequent comments should be made in a new section.

    DJ Many[edit]

    Soulja Boy's DJ requests assistance with an article about him, now a draft: Draft:DJ_Many_(Disc_Jockey) Ocaasi t | c 17:20, 23 December 2013 (UTC)

    Legacy Not Needed[edit]

    My recent editorial to the article removes his legacy section. Why? Cause it's not needed in anyway. Usually when an artist has a "legacy" section in their article it's because they're finished with music and their career is complete. Soulja Boy's career is not close to being done and he still has plans to make music. He's only 23 years old and still has a long way to go. His legacy has not been fulfilled or completed and for such a young musical artist to have a "legacy" on their page is ridiculous. Maybe right now he's known for some of his earlier work (his 2007 album) but what he's remembered for could change soon and I don't believe it's right for such a young artist to have a legacy section so early, not to mention the section hardly has any detail.

    Padraic73 (talk) 13:53, 14 May 2014 (UTC)== Misleading paragraph under U.S. Armed Forces ==

    The second paragraph under the heading U.S. Armed Forces is misleading. The references (133) link to a BTZ.com article which uses a TMZ.com article as source. The TMZ article clarifies that the album 'Respect my Hustle' is banned from sale in AAFES (Army & Air Forces Exchange Service) stores. That's quite a bit different than a ban on all of his 'music'.

    This sentence makes no sense[edit]

    Maybe its just me but this sentence doesn't make sense to me: "Way stated he would also release a movie of his own to go along with his mixtape of the same name again somewhat reignited with Ice-T following a statement during Ice-T's interview with Shade 45 in late April 2011." — Preceding unsigned comment added by 86.131.139.50 (talk) 21:53, 13 June 2014 (UTC)
