->"SOULJA BOY TELL 'EM!"
-->-- Soulja Boy, ''[[AuthorCatchphrase every song he's ever made]]''

Ahh, Soulja Boy. He tells 'em.

Soulja Boy (also known as Soulja Boy Tellem, Soulja Boy Tell 'Em, and S. Beezy) is a rapper. His quality varies from person to person, but for most people he is either completely revolting or [[SoBadItsGood hilariously awesome]].

He has released three albums over the past four years, ''Souljaboytellem.com'', ''[=iSouljaBoyTellem=]'', and ''The [=DeAndre=] Way''. If you think his third album has nothing to do with his name, you're wrong -- His real name is [=DeAndre=] Way. Recent theories have deduced that the entirety of Soulja Boy may be a StealthParody.

Despite still garnering radio play throughout his career, sales for his albums sunk dramatically relatively quickly. His first album was #4 in the US. His second was #43. His newest was #90!

In 2010, Soulja Boy had an interview with hip-hop magazine, XXL. He stated that he wanted people to take him seriously, which everyone can understand...and then he decided to say that he didn't want to be "super-lyrical" like LupeFiasco (Soulja's polar opposite in both quality and content) so that people could [[DualMeaningChorus actually understand what he's saying]]. Lupe laughed it off...[[RoaringRampageOfRevenge then released S.L.R.]] (Super Lupe Raps) in which most people agree that he absolutely owns, then [[ThereIsNoKillLikeOverkill utterly destroys]] Soulja Boy. Soulja Boy is left to reply.

!!Soulja Boy provides examples of:
* {{Angrish}}: "Yahhh!"
** [[WebVideo/TheMusicVideoShow Maybe it's the result of Tourette's Syndrome?]]
* CatchPhrase: "SOULJA BOY TELL 'EM!"
** "Swag"
* DanceSensation: "Crank That" being the biggest example, followed by the chicken-scratch mimicing "Bird Walk".
* DontLikeDontRead: Subverted; despite dedicating a good fraction of his lyrics to lashing out at "haters", he has stated that he actually pays attention to and considers critical reviews of his albums.
* GarbagePostKid: Supposedly, after he fell for a phishing scam, one managed to get ahold of his Myspace account and do rather unsavory things to it.
* InformedObscenity: A RealLife version that caused major backlash against "Crank Dat". See below. The term it was supposed to mean was something so out there that nobody would ever figure that out unless they were told.
* LyricalDissonance: Subverted. The song "Crank Dat" was thought to feature a verse about a sex act, due to an urban legend. [[WordOfGod According to Soulja Boy,]] the song has no meaning. [[AuthorsSavingThrow He found the urban legend rather disturbing.]]
* LyricalShoehorn
* MoneySong: One of his most favorite things to rap about, aside from swag!
* ObfuscatingStupidity: Despite being lauded by many music enthusiasts as a moron, Soulja has exhibited a well-developed vocabulary, and even types with perfect spelling and grammar!
* RageQuit: Soulja Boy challenged all of Xbox Live to "any" game, claiming to be the best gamer in the world... Except a little research would show that he's actually average, ''and that's if we're being nice''. The ONLY challenge he accepted was from an MTV employee, which anyone who has ever played a video game will tell you was clearly fixed (Well, okay, not fixed in the way that you're probably thinking, the MTV employeee simply sucked even harder at video games).
** But it gets worse - The ScrewAttack team got word of this challenge, and responded with a challenge of their own - Soulja Boy would play four of the team members, one-on-one in four separate games. It took ''over two months'' for Soulja Boy to actually respond to the challenge, but immediately try to change the terms of ''his'' challenge to be team matches. ScrewAttack immediately called him out on it, reiterated their challenge & suggested that since they didn't trust him to actually fight them himself and expected him to just deny losing or blame the internet connection should it happen, Soulja Boy travel to SGC (ScrewAttack Gaming Convention) for the challenge. [[RageQuit He promptly deleted the]] Website/YouTube [[RageQuit video featuring his acceptance of their challenge and never mentioned it again]].
** He makes you pay to join his Xbox Live clan, where all you would get is the privilege of including the clan's initials in your Gamer Tag. Let's just repeat that - ''[[SchmuckBait He makes you pay money to join his Xbox Live clan, where all you would get in return is the "privilege" of including the clan's initials in your Gamer Tag]]''.
*** [[BadButt That gamer chair of his was pretty awesome though, right?]]
* {{Sampling}}: Of FL Studio's default samples. This makes it extremely easy for moderately talented musicians to almost completely re-create many of his songs.
* SmallNameBigEgo: On his now-defunct Website/DeviantArt account, Soulja Boy announced plans to produce his own anime series... with him as the main character. And release it in October 2010 - ''only five months after he first wrote about it''. Yeah, YouFailFilmSchoolForever right there, SB.
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Mz0fktCGTWY He actually released it in the next month.]]
** It had Alfonso "[[Series/TheFreshPrinceOfBelAir Carlton]]" Ribiero and MTV News' Sway in it, and it actually ''wasn't that bad''.
* StageNames: And God help us all, ''he won't let you forget it.''
* StuffyOldSongsAboutTheButtocks: "Donk" and its sequel, "Booty Got Swag (Donk part 2)".
* TakeThat: "I don't want to be super-Lupe-Fiasco-lyrical with n*ggas not understanding what the fuck I'm talking about."
** And in the counter-fire, Lupe Fiasco: "Soulja call it super-Lupe-lyrical/You can't understand me, nor mimic my miracles. All I see is me and I'm a mother-loving-mirrorfull(fool)"
** And in the same song: "[[ShoutOut Game Over.]][[{{Saw}} Body parts.]]"
* YouExclamation: In the beginning of "Crank That".
