DeAndre Cortez Way was born on July 28, 1990, better known by his stage name Soulja Boy Tell ‘Em, or simply Soulja Boy, is an American rapper and record producer.
In September 2007, his single “Crank That (Soulja Boy)” reached number one on the Billboard Hot 100. The single was initially self-published on the Internet, and it became a number-one hit in the United States for seven non-consecutive weeks starting in September 2007. This makes him the youngest person (16 years, 10 months) to write, perform, and produce a number-one song on the Hot 100, a title that was previously held by Deborah Gibson (17 years, 11 months) for almost two decades. Despite his commercial success, his music has been the subject of ridicule from his peers and critics.
