Happy birthday, Soulja Boy! The American rapper, record producer, actor and entrepreneur is celebrating his 27th birthday today. Soulja Boy is best known to the My9music.com for his single “Crank That (Soulja Boy)” peaked at number one on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100

DeAndre Cortez Way, known professionally as Soulja Boy Tell ‘Em, or simply Soulja Boy, is an American rapper, record producer, actor and entrepreneur.

In September 2007, his debut single “Crank That (Soulja Boy)” peaked at number one on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100. The single was initially self-published to the internet, and later became a number-one hit in the United States for seven non-consecutive weeks starting in September 2007.[5] On August 17, Way was listed at number 18 on the Forbes list of Hip-Hop Cash Kings of 2010 for earning $7 million for that year.

Way has discharged three studio collections and one free collection: his presentation studio collection Souljaboytellem.com (2007) was guaranteed platinum by the RIAA. In any case, his next two collections, iSouljaBoyTellem (2008) and The DeAndre Way (2010) did not coordinate the business achievement of his presentation, in spite of the accomplishment of a few singles crosswise over the two collections, for example, “Kiss Me Thru the Phone”, “Turn My Swag On” and “Beautiful Boy Swag”. The DeAndre Way sold just 100,000 duplicates.

Best known for his single “Crank That,” which hit #1 on the Billboard Hot 100 in 2007. His debut album Souljaboytellem.com became certified platinum that same year.

Born DeAndre Cortez Way, he moved from Chicago to Atlanta to Mississippi in order to pursue a career in music.

He released the singles “Turn My Swag On” and “Kiss Me Thru the Phone,” which was nominated for a Viewer’s Choice Award in 2009.

His younger brother, Deion Jenkins, died in an auto collision in 2011. He also has an older brother.

He and Bow Wow had a well publicized feud in 2009 that involved a Lamborghini race.

He was born on July 28, 1990
