Rap’s Social Media King: Soulja Boy (2010 WSJ Interview)


As a fan of hip-hop, I was amazed after watching this video of rap artist Soulja Boy’s ascend to stardom via social media. I previously wrote a post about one of my favorite R&B artist Trey Songz and how he used social media to increase his popularity and record sales, and I was impressed. But what Soulja Boy was able to do on his own, well before he left highschool, is amazing.

Check out his story in an interview with Wall Street Journal’s Lee Hawkins back in 2010 below:
