    i thought Souljah Boy died a long time ago. i had forgotten about it. thank you for reminding me. i blame pabasa for reminding me cause hes name is shorter then powpowking and those are the only 2 names i can see without scrolling up.

    oh well im so over it i dont even want to put any effort in to hating it.

    How can you discover something thats not hidden? Youtube and the internet are public domains, and he is using them for self promotion...

    If he hid himself then that would defy the point...

    So they didn`t really discover him... they just had a slow day and did a report on him.

    I never knew who he was before this.

    Mind i like rock music and not bloody rap.

    Who the **** is Souljah boy? I watched this and all I got out of it was that he is some 17 year old rapper to which, apparently, the whole U.S. wants to dance to. I can stand certain types of rap, but most annoy me. From what I can tell, Souljah boy seems like he isn`t the traditional "**** you mama, and **** you dad. I hope I can blast a cap in all the ***es of every god damn rapper who think they better than me" rapper. So, at least that`s a plus...

    It did NOT get popular because it was a great song and had a great dance! It was because it was so FUDGING PATETHIC that people learned it to make fun of it! And then the rest of redneck america thought that it was cool because "everyone else is doing it"... OMG the ignorant people in this world... I want to cry like the britney-fan...

    Did anyone see the date this was filmed? I wasn`t paying attention.

    I think that the Soulja Boy phenomenon is over, and that CNN just finally got the memo that he exists.

    And he is SO the typical rapper, Marram...let`s examine his lyrics:

    "I`m Jocking On Yo B*tch A*s
    And If We Get The Fightin
    Then I`m roostering On Your B*tch
    You Catch Me At Yo Local Party
    Yes I Crank It Everyday
    Haterz Get Mad Cuz
    `I Got Me Some Bathin Apes`"

    I dunno why you all think the song and dance are so bad. It may not be the best song and I may suck at dancing and I hardly ever listen to music, but this song`s better than some of the other crap disguised as music i`ve heard.

    Stupid america. You let your kids listen to this music, when the lyrics contain depictions of graphic and disgusting sexual acts.
    Just proves my point that rappers don`t have any lyrical talent, they just mumble to a lame beat. And if that beat and mumbling happen to be good, then it`s a "hit"
    Good god, i`m getting tired of hearing this stupid song.

    Well, If I`m not mistaken, the I-A-B filter changed c*ck into rooster, and bathing ape is a (japanese?)clothing store.

    Yeah, I wish it`s over too but of course someones gonna release yet another annoying song that teenagers somehow seem to like. WHAT THE HELL EVER HAPPENED TO AN ALL-TIME CLASSIC?

    Its quite obvious that the only reason he has got so many downloads is becuase the dumbass`s who listen to this type of crap are too stupid to get it though torrents or somthing free.

    Anyway, the songs pathetic, he isnt even in time.
