Video: Soulja Boy Talks Social Media, Performs ‘Speakers Going Hammer’

Soulja Boy and Lee Hawkins

Soulja Boy has risen to fame and fortune due in part to his use of social media. The 20-year-old rapper, who has 2.5 million Twitter followers and over 500 million views on YouTube, spoke to The Wall Street Journal‘s Lee Hawkins as part of “WSJ Weekend Conversations.”

The “music industry’s king of social media” discussed how he uses the Internet to market himself, his next big idea, who he turns to for advice, and working with Kanye West and Kid Cudi on his new album The DeAndre Way, due November 30. He didn’t leave without performing his Boi-1da-produced single “Speakers Going Hammer.” Watch below.

    i think Soulja Boy is very clever. Using the internet and everything. i like how he is involved in all aspects of his music, producing his own songs, videos and websites. Okay so he isnt the best rapper (and i think he’d agree) but he is driven and does have a good ear for a beat. He knows what he wants and gets it. I think thats why he is deserving. Its obvious he’s worked hard and it not just been handed on a plate to him. I respect that. do ur think Soulja.

    Ok, the interview was cool i guess but what tha hell did he do with his performance? – he was totally off the beat and the playback and he forgot the text in the second part. i love soulja, but this was garbage.
