Soulja Boy Tell ‘Em, Framed

Framed


Soulja Boy Tell 'Em--DeAndre Way--has been a controversialfigure since he burst on the national scene. A self-created star, he recordedhis monstrous "Crank That" at the age of 16, and it hit #1 onBillboard shortly after he turned 17.

The naysayers were soon out in full force. EntertainmentWeekly declared its album, souljaboytellem.com, the worst LP of2007. Ice-T said Soulja was "killing hip-hop." Others referred toSoulja as "the Terri Schiavo of hip-hop."

Framed, of course, is sensationally fair anddemocratic; thus, we're pleased to present Soulja's "Bird Walk" asour video this week. The song is off his second album, iSouljaBoyTellEm,which hasn't fared as well on the charts as his first disc. Still, we'recurious as to how our readers see Soulja Boy. Does his dance-styled rap spell thedeath of relevant hip-hop? Or is it merely a case of the old guard beingreluctant to give up their place in the sun? Please let us know yourthoughts...Soulja Boy: ringtone god or not?!
