Soulja Boy is to Hip Hop what Chubby Checker was To Rock n Roll! or at Best Sir Mix A Lot to old school rap!
A NOVELTY ACT
Chubby Checker song will live forever THE TWIST when it dropped in 1960. It had everyone doing his dance and the song went to #1 on the pop charts!!! but Chubby is NOT known for anything else!! (hmmm sounds like soulja in 2007 dont it)
Mix A Lot dropped BABY GOT BACK in 1992. it went to #1 on the pop charts and hes still eating off his one big hit!!!
Chubby and Mix dropped other songs but NOBODY CARED just do your hit nigga. Soulja Boy is no more of a legend in his genre then Chub and Mix are in theres. they will always be known for that one hit NOVELTY!! if Soulja Boy changed rap its for the worse. Low skilled, wack ass Gap rap and making the genre WORSE for contribution!!!
Im guessing the average age on this board is like 21 years old and bunch of yall have no sense of history and prespective in a hip hop era where stuff that is only 4 years old is considered old school!

nigga just said a classic album has to change hip hop
soulja boy's first SONG did that
his album just showcased more of it
so is crank dat a classic song that came from a classic album?
on top of that soulja completely changed how one markets themself and gets on
he got on by his damn self using the internet which spawned the likes of charles hamilton, lil b, kreayshawn, hell all of the ic rappers are following in soulja's footprints
is soulja boy a legend?

But why not though? Just because ME or YOU don't like it don't make him not a legend. I mean T/S is kinda right in a sense. Though every fiber in my body wants to say no how can you deny this kid's impact on marketing AND music. Music started emulating SB after Crank Dat the kid started a whole movement. I don't like the kid's music but in no way can I take anything away from him. SB was the single best teenage hustler in modern rap I've ever seen. And youtube thanks him for it.

too early to know but most niggas are legends for bringing something people admire to the table. example, vanilla ice went diamond i think but not a legend cause niggas hated the gimmick. that said, if this generation respect what he brought to the game he will prolly be considered a legend (by them at least).

M.C. Hammer was to Vanilla Ice...
What Soulja Boy was to the niggas who made "Crank Dat Batman".
That's why Vanilla Ice isn't a legend, and Soulja Boy is.
