Soulja Boy may only be a ripe 20 years old, but that only makes his trip down memory lane more convincing on his segment for MTV’s “When I Was 17.” The S.O.D. Money Gang chief recalls moving from Georgia to Mississippi with his father, flipping patties at Burger King before blowing up with his hit “Crank That,” getting suspended for three days following a bathroom brawl, and more.

U.K. sensation Jay Sean sported long locks when he was 17, when he considered himself “the shit” despite his huge beard and unibrow (“My face was one big hairball,” he jokes). The “2012” singer discusses his love of Jay-Z and Mary J. Blige while in high school, shoplifting a bag of potato chips and almost getting caught, and being obsessed with “The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air.”
