Soulja Boy live at White Dubai
He brought us the most annoyingly catchy song of 2007, with a famous dance to go along with it. Now DeAndre Cortez Way, better known as Soulja Boy, is bringing his hit ‘Crank That’ to White Dubai this Saturday.
The song was number one in the US for a whopping seven weeks, and it instigated a string of copycat dance moves all over the world. Unfortunately for Soulja, none of his other singles have managed to match this achievement, although he remains a popular name in hip hop circles.
Away from the mic, he’s tried his hand at a few different ventures, with varying success. His fashion line S.O.D clothing rode the popularity-wave from his hit single in 2008, and later that year he released a shoe line called Yums. Possibly the most surprising move of all was a cartoon named Soulja Boy: The Animated Series, but unfortunately only one episode aired.
If you fancy heading to White Dubai this Saturday, you’d better learn the ‘Crank That (Soulja Boy)’ dance…
