Soulja Soulja Soulja..I don’t know whether to feel sorry for you or not. Your career is slowly slipping away. Teenagers are now becoming adults. I can understand switching your style up to stay relevant, but I’m not feeling this hair.
First, you started swagin’ with your homie Lil B trying to share his spotlight. Swag. As time went on, you wanted to be more and more like Basedgod. Swag. You started cookin’ and your lyrics started degrading to “hoes on yo’ dick”. Swag. You found some success in Pretty Boy Swag but not really. Woop. At this point you might have realized that you will never duplicate the success of Crank That. Woop.
So then, you switched your style up again. You started rapping about weed with a laid back flow over smooth beats. Wiz Khalifa *cough*. I saw you trying to skate in your videos trying to adopt the skater look like Mac Miller. But you were just trying to appeal to High Schoolers around the country that had once bought your discs as Middle Schoolers. And that didn’t really work. Did any of you guys download the 1Up Mixtape? I didn’t think so.
After that came the somewhat infamous Juice mixtape. Juice.You cut your hair trying to look like Tupac. Juice. But of course their is no way that you’ll ever even attempt to duplicate Tupac’s music. Juice. It’s not because your Soulja Boy, it’s because your not ‘Pac. Simple as that. Reading between the lines you were just trying to stay relevant by stirring up controversy. Juice. That sort of worked, as you saw a little success in Zan With That Lean. But, nevertheless you were trying to look like someone you were not. Tupac in Juice.
Then on June 21, 2011 you decide to share your new look with the world. A blond super super saiyan. Let’s see here Rappers that have dyed their hair: Chris Brown, Wiz Khalifa (that stripe counts), and Tyga. And surprise surprise, every one of those rappers is relevant. Once again Soulja. Why are you trying to be like someone else?
I can understand you trying to stay relevant but why must you do it on the backs of someone else. Homie, build your own lane and go pedal to the metal.
Soulja Boy you’re killin’ me.
Yo and dye your hair back, that color looks horrible on you. Swag.
