SOULJA Boy’s popularity is credited to the success of his hit singles Crank That and Kiss Me thru the Phone.
From his rap releases and feuds with other stars to his dating life, Soulja always seems to be on the move.
Where is Soulja Boy now?
Born on July 28, 1990, the 32-year-old Chicago native is known as an American rapper and record producer.
Soulja rose to fame in 2007 after his debut single Crack That hit #1 on the US Billboard Hot 100.
Since then, he has released eight studio albums and amassed an estimated net worth of $30 million thanks to his career.
On March 19, 2022, Soulja shocked fans with an Instagram video that revealed the news that the 32-year-old rapper would be a father in the coming year.
That same Saturday, his girlfriend Jackilyn Martinez posted a series of clips and images from her and Soulja’s gender reveal party.
On Friday, September 30, Soulja and Jackilyn debuted their baby boy on Instagram in a commemorative birthday post for the latter.
What happened to Soulja Boy?
In November 2021, the rapper made headlines after the death of aspiring rapper Young Dolph, fatally shot in Tennessee.
The pair reportedly had beef and were often at odds on social media about money and their careers.
A week before Dolph was gunned down, Soulja was on Instagram Live allegedly speaking to his followers when a fan mentioned Dolph’s name and he said he had “a $100,000 bounty on his head.”
Days later, on November 21, Soulja Boy was pulled from an upcoming show on FedExForum after new surveillance footage was released reportedly showing suspects shooting Dolphs.
“To ensure the safety of the artists and patrons of the 2021 Millennium Tour, tour officials are exercising caution and want to make a wise decision to be safe,” reads a G-Squared press release.
“The safety and well-being of our customers is our top priority… We pride ourselves on providing our customers with quality concert experiences.”
There was no indication that the rapper had anything to do with Dolph’s death, nor was he named as a suspect.
The Sun has reached out to Soulja Boy representatives for comment but has not heard back before publication.
Dolph reportedly had beef with several rappers but was unaware of it prior to his death.
After the news, Soulja Boy spoke about being dropped and admitted he didn’t understand why.
“You all mutaf***ers made me take off the Memphis show like dying of Young Dolph had anything to do with me,” the rapper said while live on Instagram.
“What the hell does young Dolph’s death have to do with me? That’s what the hell I’m trying to figure out.”
