Soulja Boy's 2007 debut single "Crank That (Soulja Boy)" had the streets on fire upon contact and it wasn't long before it swept the nation. It spent seven weeks at #1 on the Billboard Hot 100 and has since gone triple platinum.
A marketing genius, Soulja Boy who was one of the first people to harness the full potential of the internet. The steel drum loop is iconic, but it's really the video, which doubled as a dance tutorial, that sparked the song's massive success.
The dance is still kinda fresh. In honor of Soulja Boy's BRAND NEW album Better Late Than Never, revisit the sensation that was "Crank That (Soulja Boy)."
