Soulja Boy: "I'm Gettin Money Like I'm Macklemore"

Posted by on Fri, Mar 7, 2014 at 3:08 PM

Atlanta ringtone-rap originator Soulja Boy released this track, apparently from his upcoming King Soulja 2 mixtape yesterday. Though the beat is a generic, C-grade MPC Cartel throwaway and the Macklemore name drop is the most clever thing about the whole song, the fact that Young Soulja is using the local rapper (are we still allowed to call him that?) as a reference point to his money-getting seems more validating than any number of Grammy Awards. Something tells me this won't be the last time another rap artist invokes the platinum-plaque'd professor.

To be fair, his path to success was very similar to Macklemore's. The only difference is he didn't toil in the minors for a decade before almost completely changing his style.
