Rapper-Endorsed Actavis Cough Syrup Ceases Production Apr 23, 2014 at 03:13pm
If you listen to current rap music, you may have heard the brand Actavis name-dropped a couple of times. Artists such as ASAP Rocky, Soulja Boy, Migos, Future, Ab-Soul, and more have mentioned the cough syrup in songs and interviews, as the Codeine and Promethazine-based medication is the key ingredient in popular drug concoction, 'lean'.  While the brand has undoubtedly profited from recreational use, the company has decided to stop distributing the product due to continued promotion of its unlawful use.

A few weeks removed from Soulja Boy claiming he had relations with K.

"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.

Much of Soulja Boy's Instagram comprises of photos/videos of the rapper zooming around his mansion on his hoverboard. He sells branded "Souljaboards" for $1,500 on his online store.

Chief Keef Tweets Out What He Alleges Is Soulja Boy's Phone Number, Then Admits It's Not His Dec 5, 2013 at 05:09pm
Beef could be brewing once more between Chief Keef and Soulja Boy. It's almost been a year since the two took their beef public, with Keef tweeting out Soulja Boy's phone number, and Soulja in turn threatening the Chicago rapper. This all seemed to stem from a GBE rapper allegedly stealing one of Soulja's chains. Soulja later claimed his social accounts had been hacked, and it seemed to end there.
Soulja Boy "Mad As Hell" Over Actavis Discontinuation, Petitioning To Bring It Back
Soulja Boy "Mad As Hell" Over Actavis Discontinuation, Petitioning To Bring It Back Apr 26, 2014 at 04:56pm
Actavis announced last week that they would be taking their promethazine-codeine cough syrup off the shelves, citing the "unlawful and dangerous use" of the product as the reasoning behind it. Seeing that rappers are constantly promoting the recreational use of the medication in their raps (generally as part of the syrup-fueled concoction, "lean"), their reasoning made sense, but rappers have been pretty divided in their stance on the discontinuation. 
Soulja No Swiping: 6 Times Soulja Boy Stole Another Rapper's Flow
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.

Beyonce released her sixth album in her usual surprise fashion tonight, as Lemonade appeared on Tidal after the HBO premiere of the "visual album" of the same name. Unsurprisingly, there is a vast array of mega-talented musicians behind Beyonce's latest work.

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.
Review: Soulja Boy's "Life After Fame"
Review: Soulja Boy's "Life After Fame" Aug 6, 2013 at 02:42pm
July 30th approached quickly for Soulja Boy. Originally announced as an album, Life After Fame arrived at its release date with little to no hype. Instead of pushing the album back, the “Crank That” rapper delivered a nineteen-track mixtape with zero features. Recent singles “We Ready” and “Ridin’ Round” are nowhere to be found on the tracklist. Everything about the project, including the cover art, seemed to be changed last minute.
Nothing Was The Same: Ranking Drake's Remixes
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 Talks About Going To Jail
Soulja Boy Talks About Going To Jail Feb 21, 2014 at 05:27pm
Soulja Boy isn't scared of jail, or so he says. He sat down with XXL and said: "I ain't scared. It just is what it is. I done been to jail before, but not for this long of a time...So, it is what it is. I gotta deal with life...I've had a lot of success. I just look at this as a minor bump. I'll get focused back on the music after it's over with." However, he feels targeted about the whole ordeal.
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.
