Soulja Boy, who has dropped several bangers in his elongated career, is now looking to add one more feather to his cap with the start of the new year. The ‘Crank That’ hitmaker will soon be seen showing off his acting skills with Revolt TV’s new program ‘Being Draco’ all set to be aired on January 21. But does that mean he is quitting hip-hop?

Soulja Boy, whose real name is DeAndre Cortez Way, recently hopped on an Instagram Live session and claimed that he was done with rap “beefs” and was all geared up to solely focus on acting. Social media users soon assumed that the 31-year-old rapper dropped a hint about hanging up his boots in rap. As the rumor picked up the heat, Soulja Boy ultimately logged into Twitter to clear the air. Read on to know what he said on quitting rap.

Is Soulja Boy retiring from hip-hop?

Soulja Boy, who time and again gets trolled for his cheeky remarks, in his Instagram video said, “2022, my new TV show coming out January 21 [with] Revolt TV, shout-out to P. Diddy.” He continued, “Being Draco, new TV show January 21, 2022, we going into the year with all positive energy, you know what I’m saying?” adding, “I ain’t got no beef with nobody. I ain’t got no smoke, no problems, no nothin’. All I’m doing is TV show and movies, I’m a actor now.”

Social media users quickly assumed that Soulja Boy was willing to quit rap for acting. However, a few hours later the Soulja, who also goes by the name of Big Draco, denied all the baseless rumors saying, “I have not quit rapping. My new album drop next month. I said I quit beefing.” He added, “Blogs stop posting that. I WILL NEVER RETIRE FROM MUSIC. PERIOD.” Soulja was recently in news when he dubbed Kanye West as “scab head boy” after the latter dropped his verse from his 10th studio album ‘Donda’.



‘Quit for the sake of everyone’s ears’

Social media users flocked to Twitter as one said, “Bro it's all good we stop listening to you years ago! make it clap we was just bored.” Another requested, “Quit for the sake of everyone’s ears.” One user tweeted, “Retirement isn't that bad...move to Florida buy a boat”, as one chimed in, “Just make better songs like you did back in the 2000's when you start rapping bro.”

The next one trolled the rapper saying he was the, “First rapper to stop beefing.” And, echoing similar sentiments, another individual mocked Soulja by saying he was the “First rapper not to quit rapping.” One user asserted, “Nobody wants it quit rapping and retire it’s 2022 not 2007 YoungBoy taking over now.” Whereas, another concluded, “But the way you rap it sounds like you’ve never started rapping because you be saying a bunch of bullshit and wasting your fucking breath for what!!!”
