Lil Yachty Is Teaming With Lil B & Soulja Boy For "Pretty Boy Millionaires 2" Apr 10, 2016 at 04:55pm
If you're old enough to remember the golden age of swag rap, you're very familiar with the Pretty Boy Millionaires, the Only Built 4 Cuban Linx of the sub-genre. For those who don't know, or were unfortunately not paying attention to the movement, the project is a 2010 joint mixtape from Soulja Boy and Lil B, a high-energy, spontaneous collaboration that was often imitated but never replicated, but today, we've learned of plans for a potential sequel, though the message comes courtesy of swag rap-indebted newcomer, Lil Yachty.
The "Internet Rapper" Phenomenon
The "Internet Rapper" Phenomenon Mar 15, 2016 at 07:55pm
Since debuting in 2008, XXL's annual Freshman Class feature has had its fair share of questionable choices (such as Kidd Kidd appearing a full eight years after we first heard him on "Mrs. Officer") and flops, not to mention numerous omissions of rappers who've gone onto stardom. It's never exactly been considered a finger-on-the-pulse-type source for new talent, but rather a conversation starter and surface-level barometer for casual hip-hop hobbyists.

Behind The Beat: Mr. 2-17 Jan 27, 2016 at 01:21pm
Mr. 2-17 is Atlanta through-and-through, but despite being only 21 years old, he's not all that concerned with the music coming out of the region today. Hailing from the Eastside of the city known as Zone 6, the young artist grew up in the same area as rap icons like Future and Gucci Mane, but his obsession with ATL rap dates a little further back.

Soulja No Swiping: 6 Times Soulja Boy Stole Another Rapper's Flow May 25, 2015 at 02:15pm
After much investigation, it has been confirmed: Soulja Boy is a swag-jacker. Some may say this is stating the obvious, as Soulja Boy has been incorporating other rappers’ flows into his music for many years. Just by simply typing in "Soulja Boy stole flow" on Twitter’s search bar, you can find dozens of accusations aimed at the "Crank That" rapper for swagger-jacking. However, not until recently, did it become truly apparent. In the past few months alone, Soulja has been called-out for stealing the flows of Big Sean, Future, and Young Thug; but the list goes deeper than that.

Nothing Was The Same: Ranking Drake's Remixes May 6, 2015 at 01:57pm
With yesterday's remix of Fetty Wap's "My Way," we're getting that feeling that this summer's gonna be Drizzy season yet again. Drizzy had the most successful 2014 of anyone who didn't put out an album, and he did it by dropping impromptu remixes on the ever-fashionable OVO soundcloud. First, the TOPSZN boys bumped up Tinashe's "2 On" to level 6, and, then, weekdays were forever changed as he flexed his vocals to the max on iLoveMakonnen's "Tuesday."

Soulja Boy And K. Michelle Beef On Twitter
Soulja Boy And K. Michelle Beef On Twitter Sep 23, 2014 at 05:12am
A few weeks removed from Soulja Boy claiming he had relations with K. Michelle, the former "Love & Hip-Hop" star has denied the comments live on The Breakfast Club. “You can giggle on these nuts," said Michelle. "Let me tell you something, Soulja Boy, cause I know you’re gonna hear this. What you’re not gonna do is lie on my hot pocket. When I do something, I say I did it and that’s what it is. So that giggling… We don’t wanna giggle about that transgender in Atlanta. Giggle, giggle, now crank that. You don’t play when it comes to me and my hot pocket.
Soulja Boy Says He Inspired The "Every Single Chain" Line On Drake's "Started From The Bottom"
Soulja Boy Says He Inspired The "Every Single Chain" Line On Drake's "Started From The Bottom" Sep 16, 2014 at 07:07pm
One of the most commonly cited, quoted and laughed-about Drake lyrics is the almost impossibly arrogant "I wear every single chain, even when I'm in the house" in "Started From The Bottom." Ringing a little hyperbolic when rapped by Drizzy, the lyric seemed slightly out of character for the usually-relatively-humble rapper, and now we may know why: it was inspired by Soulja Boy.

"You better go back on Twitter and say you sorry to the OG, nigga... I don't do publicity stunts.
