But don't fret, Soulja Boy clarified what he meant via an Instagram story.

“If anybody took my post wrong, no I do not have the Monkeypox,” Soulja Boy said. “I’m just seeing that they’re making state of emergencies and posting about it so I was just posting about it. I’m all good.”

We all know Soulja Boy says he was the first rapper to get an iPhone, but is he now the first rapper to tweet about Monkey Pox? Forever a trendsetter!
