Soulja Boy Wants to Go Into Esports with Ninja

Soulja Boy Wants to Go Into Esports with Ninja

I probably could have picked a more flattering picture, but... meh.

Ya’ll heard of Soulja Boy, right? He’s a rapper best known for “Crank That”, “Soulja Girl”, and making two other albums that no one really cared about. It’s said his music is “best known for his rudimentary and superficial lyrical verses, vacuous and insipid subject matter, convoluted rhyme schemes, vague song structure, and for embodying the quintessentially trivial snap and Southern hip hop music style.”

So needless to say, he’s not the biggest headliner in the world of hip-hop. And while it doesn’t seem like he intends to give up his… uh… “music career”, it seems as of late he’s trying to expand into the realm of video games. Earlier this month, he revealed his definitely-not-pirated “Soulja Game”, and now he’s revealed he has every intention of entering the eSports scene… if he can get Ninja’s help.

While calling himself a close friend to Ninja (which may or may not be true, apparently Ninja helped him get verified on Twitch), he said he wanted to start hiring “talent” to play Overwatch, Counter-Strike, Call of Duty, and of course, Fortnite.

It’s, let’s say “questionable,” how well this exactly pans out. The eSports scene is shockingly professional, at least as far as Overwatch, Counter-Strike, and Call of Duty go, with powerful brands working closely with each other to host and sponsor talented players and events. Famously, you need a $10 million dollar buy-in in order to participate in Overwatch esports, which is not a small amount of money even for a rapper of Soulja Boy’s caliber. And as fun as it is to think you can just get a talented group of people together and take the esports world by storm, it doesn’t exactly work that way.

Still. I want to point out that we live in a world where a top hip-hop artist actually has to name drop a video game streamer. Magical.
