Soulja Boy will be one of the first people to crow about his own accomplishments. That brazen personality is what helped launch him into the public eye in the first place. He has also innovated a few things that people don’t seem to give him credit for.

The famous rapper posted an Instagram story that seemed to agree with the idea that he is an absolute innovator. Plenty of rappers have flexed their cash by pretending it was a cell phone, but Soulja Boy was the first to dial up a stack of Benjamins.

DJ Akademiks posted a photo of Soulja Boy pretending to be on a cell phone while holding a stack of cash to his ear. The comment below the post said: “Comment everything that Soulja Boy has been the first to do in hop hop.”

This post has received a lot of attention as fans have now joined the conversation. The general consensus is that Soulja Boy might not get the credit he rightfully deserves. Perhaps becoming BFFs with Elon Musk will help elevate his public profile.

Soulja Boy also started a beef with Randy Orton. It seems that they squashed things, but that was also a first for the rap community, because few have tangled with The Viper.

What else can you think that Soulja Boy did before anyone else? Sound off in the comments!

H Jenkins

Years of experience in writing, journalism, and digging exclusive insider info for Ringside News opened the door for a new opportunity for Jenkins. With a history in finance, he broke into the journalism game by writing on blogs and other freelance websites before branching into sports and entertainment news. Being in tune with pop culture doesn't mean it has to make sense, but he tries. Favorite bands include any group from Seattle who formed between 1991 and 1999. 5 Ozzfests under his belt and 12 Warped Tours, but his last concert was a bluegrass AC/DC cover band that was not 100% terrible.
