Soulja Boy‘s scorching hot streak continues. Recently, the self-proclaimed “hottest rapper in the game” told The Hollywood Fix that he’s surpassed 6ix9ine, achieving greater success on his recent interview with The Breakfast Club than the Gummo rapper.
“I surpassed 6ix9ine,” said Soulja Boy as he exited the Gucci store. “My Breakfast Club interview had 12 million views… It took 6ix9ine 3 months to do that, I did it in 24 hours.”
His words for 6ix9ine were significantly less harsh than the shots he has consistently been throwing at Drake and Tyga recently. The Chicago rapper continued to defend his claims that he’s the “hottest rapper in the game right now,” thanks to the recent success of his video game console and continued beef with every rapper that comes in his path.
Soulja Boy also revealed he’s got an album on the way and is reportedly going on tour with Nicki Minaj in the summer, insisting that a deal with Live Nation has already been closed. “My new album is on the way. I’m going on tour with Nicki Minaj this summer, Live Nation just closed the deal yesterday,” the 28-year-old rapper said.
With a new project on the way, it looks like Soulja Boy will continue to ride this renewed wave of hype around him for the foreseeable future.
