This week, the rapper Soulja Boy has become a viral topic on social media, with fans eager to know why. The rapping teenager rose to fame in the noughties for his debut song Crank That (Soulja Boy), which hit No. 1 at age 17 and is now 31-year-old Rick & Morty’s latest hit song. The Life of Draymond will return for Season 2 on Netflix in 2020. In 2021, the rapper will release a new film trilogy, The Life of Draco. This time round, it’s not his music or upcoming album that has people talking online.
Fans are going crazy after some raunchy content from Soulja Boy’s OnlyFans appeared to leak on Twitter this week. Yes, Soulja Boy, the now 31-year-old that we all loved in the noughties, is very popular on the explicit subscription site.
The Chicago-born rapper, whose real name is DeAndre Cortez Way, certainly isn’t bothered by the leak either. In fact, he’s loving every minute of it! Soulja doesn’t make much music anymore but is instead reveling in the success he makes on OnlyFans. He’s added a whole new meaning to his 2008 hit Kiss Me Thru The Phone, but how did he get from global superstar to OnlyFans fame?
Soulja Boy’s Music Career Was Booming
Soulja Boy is well-known for his social media following, which has increased in recent years. He now has millions of followers on TikTok, Instagram, and Twitter, but it’s OnlyFans that have trended this week.
It’s no surprise that the Chicago-born rapper, who is now based in New York City, has been contributing content to Beats since nearly a year. After material from the site was allegedly leaked, Soulja Boy began trending on Twitter this week.
The Rapper’s Music Career Died Off
DeAndre’s third album, The DeAndre Way, was released after his rise to fame and immediately became a success. It only reached No. 90 on the Billboard Hot 100 before leaving the charts for good in its second week, and Soulja Boy’s reputation was taking a beating.
Although he was increasingly plagued by addiction, his reputation as a songwriter and producer remained intact. He still managed to release several successful records during this time period, including “Yes” (2007), “I’m Comin’ Over” (2008), “Word Life” (2011) and “Jenny From The Block”. He also produced tracks for artists such as Willow Smith, Jasmine Sullivan, Trey Songz, and launched his own video game console and dish detergent.
Now He Is Doing Only Fans
Despite his apparent silence in recent years, Soulja Boy is still extremely popular on social media. Instagram has 6.9 million followers, 5.4 million Twitter followers, and 2.1 million TikTok subscribers for him.
He hasn’t released any new material since leaving the spotlight, but he continues to post videos of himself singing on all three sites.
He appears to be making a significant impact on the subscription site OnlyFans, where fans pay $25 for access to his material. I’m not a member of his Only Fans community, but based on some of the raunchy comments that are visible on his profile and recent leak, we can guess what sort of content he provides.
Since yesterday, he’s been hyping up his OnlyFans and discussing the leak on Twitter and Instagram, and raunchy websites appear to be a full-time job for him. So there’s a quick rundown of Soulja Boy’s ever-changing career. Follow him on Instagram if you want to know what he’s doing in real time.
