The follow-up to, iSouljaBoyTellem, was released on December 16, 2008, to negative critical reception.[21] The first single from the album, "Bird Walk", peaked at number 40 on the Billboard Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs chart and the top 20 on the Hot Rap Tracks chart. It was performed on YouTube Live on November 22, 2008, with an introduction from MC Hammer.[22] "Kiss Me Thru the Phone" (featuring Sammie) followed, peaking at number three on the Hot 100 and number one on the Hot Rap Tracks charts.[23] Chris Brown was originally Way's first choice to sing the hook, but had respectfully turned down the offer. Way then tried to do it on his own with Auto-Tune but he found it unacceptable.[24] It sold over 2 million digital copies in the United States, becoming his second song to reach the two million mark in downloads.[25][26] On January 26, 2009, Way released the third single "Turn My Swag On". It topped the US Rap Charts and peaked at number 19 on the Billboard Hot 100. As of August 23, 2009 it has sold more than 1 million digital downloads in the United States.[26]

Way said his third studio album, The DeAndre Way,[27] was intended to be his most personal and successful album thus far. When speaking on possible collaborations, he said he wished to work with artists such as Jay-Z, Lil Wayne, Kanye West[28] and Eminem.[29] The lead single from the album, "POW", was released in January 2009 but failed to garner success and was dubbed a promo single. On October 30, 2009, Way released three mixtapes: Paranormal Activity, Dat Piff and Cortez.[30] It was announced on February 18, 2010, that the first single from the album was going to be "All Black Everything" but the single was cancelled and the track was put on another promotional mixtape, Legendary.[31] The album's title was changed to Dre in an early 2010 commercial with a video snippet for "Do It Big" as the first single but this was cancelled as well.[32] The album title was reverted to The DeAndre Way in July 2010.

On June 8, 2010, the official lead single from the album was "Pretty Boy Swag". The single reached number 34 on the Billboard Hot 100, number six on the Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs chart and number five on the Rap Songs chart.[33] The album's second single was due to be "Digital" which was instead used on his promotional mixtape Best Rapper.[34] Then it was announced that "Speakers Going Hammer" was going to be the second single, but "Blowing Me Kisses" was released on August 31, 2010, as the second single instead.[35] On October 13 Way performed "Pretty Boy Swag" and a snippet of his third single "Speakers Going Hammer".

In late 2018, Way went on Instagram Live and responded to fan comments suggesting Tyga had the biggest comeback of any artist in 2018. Way angrily claimed he had had the biggest comeback, with a snippet of the video going viral that same day.[148] Later in early 2019, Way made an appearance on the radio show The Breakfast Club, where he defended his statements. A snippet of Way responding to a question about fellow musician Drake became a viral meme following the interview.[149]

Way continued to release singles and two mix-tapes throughout 2019, releasing the first mix-tape, Fuego, on January 10,[150] and the second mix-tape, Tell Ya, on March 25.[151] Way announced on January 18, 2019, he was working on his fifth studio album titled How Can You Blame Me?,[152] (originally titled Blessed), with the album set to be released on July 28.

Musical style

Speaking on his rudimentary rapping technique and vacuous lyrical style, in a November 2010 interview with XXL Magazine, while Way was explaining how he has grown as an emcee he stated:

I can't keep playin' around, because if you keep playin' around, people are gonna think you're a joke ... At some point, you have to get serious. But don't get it twisted, Soulja doesn't wanna be the next Lupe Fiasco. I don't want to be super-Lupe-Fiasco-lyrical and niggas don't know what the fuck I'm talking about," he added. "I want to be the best," he continued. "I want to be recognized in that category where I'm nominated for Best Rapper with Jay-Z and Kanye and Wayne. I wanna get a Grammy. I want Best Rap Album of the Year ... I've made millions of dollars off of doing my style, but, hey, I can rap, too.

On December 5, 2010, Way clarified this statement that Lupe Fiasco was too "lyrical", explaining that he wanted to keep the rudimentary music style he developed and justified why he doesn't keep a lyrically based flow and more substantially profound lyrical subject matter on every song.[160] According to Way:

[XXL Magazine] didn't [publish] my whole statement. And basically, the interviewer dude, he was asking me why do I make lyrical songs like 'Only God Knows,' 'Born' ... 'The World So Cold,' and why do I make non-lyrical songs like 'Crank That' and 'Pretty Boy Swag'? And he was like, why don't I just be lyrical all the time? And I was telling him on [a] specific song, like 'Pretty Boy Swag,' I ain't wanna be all lyrical. I just wanted to be straight-up, and just be simple, [so] people can get what I'm saying 'cause it's a club song. But I wasn't saying as far as my whole music [output, with] all of my songs, that I don't wanna be rappin' like Lupe Fiasco.

Way further clarified there was no animosity between him and Fiasco and that the two had planned to record a song together.[161]

Record production

Way also produces records, including his own, primarily using the FL Studio digital audio workstation.[4] In September 2007, Way produced V.I.C.'s single "Get Silly" which went certified gold and Bow Wow's single "Marco Polo". Way's beats often contain the beginning lines "Soulja Boy Tell 'em" but as of late Way has produced beats without these lines. In 2009, it was reported that Way would be producing for Kanye West's fourth studio album, My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy, and Kanye would be producing for Way's third studio album, The DeAndre Way, but for unknown reasons neither of them used each other's beat.[173] On May 13, 2011, Way said he had produced and submitted beats for 50 Cent's fifth studio album, Street King Immortal.[174] In 2013, Way also produced on the track "Wowzers" of Lil Wayne's album, I Am Not a Human Being II. On May 6, 2014, during an interview, Way announced that he was producing for Diddy's upcoming album M.M.M. and also for Lil Wayne's upcoming album Tha Carter V.[175][176] Soulja Boy also produced the song "Yasss Bish", on Nicki Minaj's album, The Pinkprint.[177] In April 2016, Soulja Boy received a writing credit on Beyoncé's visual album, Lemonade.[178] On Fri, November 12, 2021, Soulja Boy announced a new album release on The Breakfast Club.

Fashion designing

On March 5, 2008, Way released his official line of "S.O.D clothing".[179] That same year Way released his own brand of the popular shoe line "Yums".[180] On February 14, 2012, Way and fashion designer D. Young created the official clothing line "Ocean Gang".[181][182][183] In 2012, Way released another line he created, "BLVD. Supply"; the store is located in Los Angeles, California.

Acting career

On January 7, 2009, Soulja Boy announced that he was to be releasing his own cartoon titled Soulja Boy: The Animated Series but only one episode was ever released.[184][185]

In August 2010, Soulja Boy announced a desire to make a film about himself, having reported to MTV News that he discussed the idea with Nick Cannon.[186] He was later approached by Peter Spirer who presented his own concept for making a documentary about the artist.[187] Directed by Spirer, Soulja Boy: The Movie was released direct-to-video on October 18, 2011, a date which coincided with Soulja Boy's arrest on a drug charge.[187][188][189] The film contains live performances from his DeAndre Way Tour and interviews with Soulja Boy's father as well as current and former members of Stacks on Deck Entertainment.[187] The documentary's visual quality was panned by DVD Verdict as a result of poor video transfer, since much of its music detail was taken from YouTube clips.[190]

On April 22, 2011, Way announced that he would be making his acting debut playing the main role of Bishop in the Juice remake and that it would air on BET.[191]

In 2013, Way announced and confirmed that he was guest-starring in the upcoming movie Officer Down.[192] On November 12, 2021, Soulja Boy announced upcoming roles on ATL and an upcoming movie role with Machine Gun Kelly.

World Poker Fund Holdings

In May 2016, Soulja Boy signed a deal from World Poker Fund Holdings for five years.[193] World Poker Fund is a builder and operator of online and event-based social gaming platforms and imprints.[193] Soulja said of the deal: "I enjoy music, and of course gaming. Being an influencer is a form of currency."[193] Way initially tweeted that the deal was for $400 million; however, that is the cap for the contract and not his payment from the company.[193]


In December 2018, Soulja Boy released a video game console, called the SouljaGame.[194] It drew criticism for being an "overpriced" emulator of Nintendo and Sega handheld games.[195][196] On December 15, 2018, he announced the release of two more consoles: the Retro SouljaBoy Mini, which resembles a Nintendo Game Boy, and the SouljaGame Fuze, which looks similar to Microsoft's Xbox One and Sony's PlayStation 4.[197] As of December 30, 2018, Soulja Boy has pulled the SouljaGame consoles off his store amid threats of a lawsuit from Nintendo.[198] The SouljaGame website was seized by Nintendo and now leads to Nintendo's website. On January 12, 2019, Soulja Boy released another handheld on his SouljaWatch website called the SouljaGame Handheld; this console looks similar in appearance to Sony's PlayStation Vita.[199]

Personal life


On the night of March 22, 2011, Way's younger brother, Deion Jenkins, was killed in a car crash.[200] On September 30, 2022, Way's girlfriend Jackie gave birth to their first child, a son.[201]


On December 30, 2008, Way was robbed and battered in his home. Initial reports indicated that the robbers were six masked men with AK-47s and pistols but on December 31, 2008, videos surfaced on the Internet of two masked men claiming sole credit for the crime.[202]

Way described the incident to MTV News a month later: He had come home very late at night after attending an album release party and was recording songs with friends when the robbers came in pointing their guns.[203] On January 26, 2009, during another interview, Way clarified that it was three robbers, not six, stating: "I got back to my house at around 3 in the morning and I was in the studio recording. So two of my homeboys was in the living room and me and Arab we was in the studio recording. And somebody kicked in the door. One dude ran in put the AK to my homeboy head, put him on the floor [...] The other two ran in my homeboy jumped in the other room, so the other two dudes ran back so I peeped in the door and they running through my house with Ks and pistols so I ducked back. I really can't dwell on what happened after that, but it was a messed up situation and I'm glad everyone made it out alive."[204]

Legal issues

On December 9, 2007, Way was sued by William Lyons (a.k.a. Souljah Boy of Mo Thugs Family) who created the stage name Souljah Boy in 1996.[205] 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.[206]

In May 2011, Way and his labels were sued by a local Pennsylvania promoter for failing to make promised payments in connection with a rescheduled concert.[207] On October 18, 2011, Way was traveling west on I-20 in Carroll County, Georgia, with four other men when their vehicle was pulled over for a vehicle equipment violation. The police officer who made the stop searched the vehicle and found more than five ounces (140 g) of marijuana. Way was arrested and released on bond the same day.[208]

On January 22, 2014, Way was a passenger in his vehicle when the driver ran a stop sign in the San Fernando Valley, California, and police discovered a loaded handgun in the car. Way was arrested immediately and taken to jail.[209] However, his manager claimed that a neighbor had left the gun under the seat; meanwhile Way was left unaware that it was there. Way admitted to owning only the vehicle, not the weapon.[210] He was convicted and sentenced to two years probation.[211] On February 15, 2014, Way announced via Twitter that he was going to jail in five days. He did not confirm the reason as to why, although it could possibly stem from the January 2014 arrest. Way ultimately never appeared to turn himself in to authorities and the details of his charges are unknown.[212]

In October 2016, Way was sued by a musician called Skrill Dilly about allegedly uttering death threats to him in a video filmed by the rapper.[213] The same year, he received additional probation time after weapons were found inside his home by police.[211][214] On March 15, 2019, Way was arrested for violating his probation, and on April 30, Way was sentenced to 8 months in prison, with credit for time served.[153][211][214]

On January 21, 2021, Way was sued by an unnamed former personal assistant of his who alleged that Way locked her in a room, physically and verbally abused her, and repeatedly raped her. Way denied the allegations, with a spokesperson for Way saying "Soulja would never put his hands on a female. He wouldn’t beat a woman or put his hands on a woman … this is nonsense.”[215][216]

On February 18, 2022, in a class-action lawsuit filed against the cryptocurrency company SafeMoon that alleged the company is a pump-and-dump scheme, Way was named as a defendant along with professional boxer Jake Paul, musician Nick Carter, rapper Lil Yachty, and social media personality Ben Phillips for promoting the SafeMoon token on their social media accounts with misleading information.[217][218] On the same day, the U.S. 11th Circuit Court of Appeals ruled in a lawsuit against Bitconnect that the Securities Act of 1933 extends to targeted solicitation using social media.[219]


Way is known for having the first single to sell over three million digital copies, due to the success of his commercially successful debut single "Crank That (Soulja Boy)".[220]

Way has garnered popularity through the use of social media. Since 2006, Way's official YouTube channel has accumulated well over a billion views and more than three million subscribers.[221] Way was one of the first rappers to capitalize on use of social media for digital marketing in the beginning of his career.[222][223]


Way's music has been banned from some school dances for alleged sexual or violent content and/or innuendos. In the original YouTube video for "Shootout", Way demonstrates his dance while holding a handgun in each hand and pretending to shoot into the audience.[224]


In June 2008, on DJ Cisco's Urban Legend mixtape, 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.[225] The two then traded videos back and forth over the Internet.[226] Rapper Kanye West defended Way by arguing that the younger artist created a new, original work for hip-hop, thus keeping the authentic meaning of the music.[227] The feud was parodied in a 2010 episode of The Boondocks.

In May 2011, Way's feud with Ice-T somewhat reignited, regarding the film Juice. Way stated he would release a movie of his own to go along with his mixtape of the same name, following a statement during Ice-T's interview with Shade 45 in late April 2011. Ice-T stated that Way's role as Bishop, which was famously originated by rapper Tupac Shakur, was not an issue. But Ice-T found it problematic that the film was being remade, saying "What? But that's Pac ... At some point, somebody gotta stop it. I came out. I made some statements. Man, I don't know. Do you, dude, do you. If the masses accept it, it shows you the state we're in ... Come on man, you think I'd try to remake Pac's movie? Good luck though, I'm not a hater ... eh." Way himself barraged Ice-T with retaliatory tweets on the same day, saying someone should "get this guy a hairline."[228][229]

Charles Hamilton

On December 9, 2008, Charles Hamilton said in an interview that Way was making it more difficult for new artists to be signed.[230] Way responded by saying "X out the Sonic and fuck with Mario, you might want to got damn eat a mushroom" (Charles Hamilton is known to be a big fan of Sonic the Hedgehog, dedicating a whole mixtape depicting him as the titular character).[231][232][further explanation needed] Charles Hamilton responded with a diss song "I'm You Last Year With Talent"[233] followed-up with another diss song called "Word Aight".[234]

Bow Wow

On February 2, 2009, Way challenged Bow Wow to a race in their Lamborghinis and claimed Bow Wow's Lamborghini was a rental.[235] On February 4, Bow Wow proved that he owned his Lamborghini and said "its halloween in Bankhead for you everyday nigga ... you scared ... you all nervous and shit". Way responded on Twitter by saying "HE FUCKED UP!!!! IM BOUT TO SHITTTT ON THIS NIGGA!! LOL!!!!!"[236] On February 7, both artists sent diss songs to each other, such as Way's "Fuck Bow Wow" and Bow Wow's "What I Think About You".[237] Later that day during a phone conversation both rappers settled their differences.[238] In 2016, they released a joint mixtape titled Ignorant Shit.[239]

U.S. Armed Forces

In September 2011, Way released the song "Let's Be Real". One of the lines of the song is: "Fuck the FBI and fuck all the army troops / Fighting for what? Bitch, be your own man / I'll be flying through the clouds with green like I'm Peter Pan."[240] After the song was released, Way was criticized by military members and their families, especially in regard to the timing in relation to the 10th anniversary of the 9/11 attacks.[241][242][243] Way apologized, "When I expressed my frustration with the U.S. Army, not only did my words come out wrong, I was wrong to even speak them." He added, "So, I write this to give my sincerest apology to all members of the United States military services, as well as their families that were offended by my most recent lyrics."[240] Representatives for Way indicated that the song had been pulled from his upcoming album, Promise, and would not be available for sale. They were also attempting to remove the video from the internet.[244]

On September 6, 2011, TMZ reported that Way's album would not be sold at the 3,100 Army and Air Force base exchanges if it included the song "Let's Be Real".[245]


On August 25, 2012, Way made controversial comments towards fellow rapper Hopsin on one of his webcam chats with his fans, when Way stated "fuck Hopsin, I'm about to go in the studio and record this Hopsin diss real quick". Way continued on by stating the words "that nigga's a bitch, fuck that bitch-ass nigga".[246] The situation was caused by Hopsin's controversial song "Sag My Pants" which was a direct diss towards Way with the lines "Soulja Boy you got a corny flow, So you can suck my fucking dick through a glory hole" though Way previously didn't focus on the diss.[247] On August 28, 2012, on Way's Tinychat, Hopsin and Way confronted each other: though Hopsin admitted he liked Way, nothing was really resolved.[248] On September 3, 2012, Way released a Hopsin diss titled "That Nigga Not Me". Hopsin stated the song was horrible, but did not respond with a diss track of his own.[249][250]

Chief Keef and Ballout

On April 19, 2013, Way sent a number of death threats to Chicago rapper Chief Keef via Facebook. The threats were likely provoked by an earlier incident, where Keef's affiliate Ballout stole Way's chain and bragged about it on Twitter. Way posted both Keef's cellphone numbers, urging people to notify him he's coming for him with a gun. He continued posting, stating he's in Keef's hometown of Chicago and asking Keef and Ballout to come to him. Chief Keef responded that he is currently in London but would talk to Way on his new number. Later the same day, Way issued a statement that his Facebook, Instagram and email were hacked and none of the earlier messages were written by him.[251][252] On June 1, 2014, Way revealed on his Instagram that he and fellow artist Chief Keef had resolved their differences. Little is known as to whether Way has settled his differences with Ballout.[253]

Chris Brown

On January 3, 2017, Way was entangled in a debacle with singer Chris Brown. The feud eventually started after Way intimidated Brown's former girlfriend, model Karrueche Tran, when Way liked a photo that involved the model.[254] The two began to exchange Instagram videos towards each other in a matter of minutes, for example: Chris Brown accusing Way of "snitching" or Way poking fun of Brown's daughter and his infamous incident with singer Rihanna in 2009.[255] The next day, Way apologized to Brown and fans about the event and wished to collaborate with Brown.[256][257]


In early 2019, Soulja Boy drew attention for claiming he had the biggest comeback of 2018 over fellow rapper Tyga on the radio show The Breakfast Club, which started a series of exchanges between the two.[258] The feud eventually resulted in the two trading diss tracks back and forth over the instrumental from Blueface's song, Thotiana.[259]

Jake Paul

Later in the same year, YouTube celebrity Jake Paul published a tweet directed at Way, saying "i wanna box @souljaboy",[260] to which Way responded "boy I'll knock you out".[261] The feud was started by Paul in reference to his participation as an undercard in the Logan Paul vs. KSI boxing fight. The two eventually confronted each other in person when Paul drove to Way's house to confirm they would be participating in an official boxing match, which Paul had stated he would put twenty million dollars on.[262] Paul posted a video on YouTube the same day indicating his own status in the rematch between Logan Paul and KSI was undecided, leaving the official status of the fight between him and Way in question.[263]


On August 18, 2021, Way claimed during an Instagram Live stream that he had gained ownership of the video game company Atari, saying "I am now the owner of Atari. I own the video game company Atari," and alleged that he had been given control of the company after they had been impressed with his SouljaGame console. The following day, Atari's official Twitter account made a post indirectly referencing and refuting Way's claim of ownership, saying "We know that CEO of Atari is a dream job, but that honor belongs to Wade Rosen."[264][265] During a video responding to the tweet, Way showed a contract which promised him Atari tokens, Atari's cryptocurrency.[266][267]
