To be fair, Soulja Boy is the first rapper with an iPhone and so many other achievements, including the first on YouTube. The man ahead of his time, but that won’t stop Snoop from laying claim to Instagram.
Snoop then went on to explain that, “They do symposiums where they have their conversations about how the company became a billion dollar company.” He added the CEO of Instagram credited Snoop for their rise on the market.
“So the CEO would have a little headpiece on and ‘you know when we first started Instagram our company was a small company and then there’s this one celebrity that, you know, got on our page and started blowing it up and then we became a hundred billion-dollar company. You know who that celebrity is? It’s Snoop Dogg.’
