US rapper, Soulja Boy has stated that he sold more records than the late king of pop Michael Jackson. In a recent interview, Soulja Boy, real name DeAndre Way, also took a swipe at Ariana Grande with claims that the singer copied his flows in her new single “7 Rings”.
“I said she’s a thief because she stole my swag. She stole my bars, my whole delivery and she didn’t give me no credit. This is not a claim that personally came from me, this is a claim that was made by the media and the news station. So I just caught wind of it, I ain’t even hear her single or none of that.”
Soulja Boy, who has of late been hitting at different artistes including Drake, gave reasons for his new stance.
“Because it’s 2019, I’m the hottest rapper in the game. Ever since January 1st on up, nothing going to stop, everybody is going to fell my wrath.”
The rapper didn’t stop there. He also stated that he sold more than ‘Thriller’ a legendary hit song done by Michael Jackson.
“You know how much money I made for Interscope and Jimmy Iovine with ‘Crank That,’ and ‘Soulja Boy Tell ’em Dot Com? I’m wroth $30 million right now myself, ‘Crank That,’ sold 15 million ring tones. It went diamond, sold more than ‘Thriller.’
Soulja Boy further stated that the reason why his words sound strange to people is because they don’t like to read.
“So how much you think that made, Jimmy Iovine on the back-in, He the CEO. ‘Crank That,’ sold more than ‘Thriller,’ you didn’t know that? Y’all go to google.com and google it. 15 million ring tones, I’m the first artist to ever do that digitally. One thing about people they don’t like to read. Y’all don’t like opening history books.”
