Soulja Boy has hit the internet with a bold new claim about being the first rapper to get a badge on Instagram.
HipHopDX reports that the rapper went on Instagram Live on Dec. 9 with a message, allegedly saying that he’s the first rapper to get the badge on his profile that allows him to receive donations from viewers.
“I’m the first rapper with the badges,” he’s reported to have said. “Y’all know they like to take my swag. Watch somebody else is going to’ come on like, ‘Oh we been had badges.’ I’m the first rapper with the badges, wassup? Let me know what’s going on. Who had them before me?”
Soulja Boy hasn’t been shy with talking about his contributions lately. In October, he tweeted about his impact on the music industry. “I really changed the whole music industry,” he wrote. That’s crazy.”
Soulja Boy could potentially be facing off against Bow Wow in a Verzuz match in the future. Bow Wow spoke to fans on Clubhouse recently and reportedly entertained the idea of the match. It was a big change from a few months ago when Bow Wow asked fans why the match should happen.
”How soulja makes fun turnt music. I make r&b hip hop music for the ladies. How is that a good match up? You gone crank that one minute then the next cry over an ex. Thats an emotional roller coaster,” he wrote on Twitter.
