Soulja Boy has been amid controversies after controversies. Perhaps that’s what has kept him trending even with his staggering low number of releases. However, Soulja’s biggest washout was his flopped gaming console. Just the other day the singer was also caught in record bashing Drake, Kanye West, and Tyga. Nevertheless, away from this, the Crank That singer has had his better days too. Having played a major role in bringing the cloth brand Louis Vuitton into the limelight, the singer has remained a close associate of the brand.
LV actually bore fruit after DeAndre returned to Los Angeles and begun promoting the brand in his music. Soulja Boy’s 2016 banger labeled Louis Vuitton kind of sold the brand across the hip hop community. Back in 2011 the singer also labeled one of his mixtapes after Louis Vuitton’s CEO further proving that he was strongly affiliated to the brand. Overall, his strong ties to LV has meant that the singer takes home goodies from the brand anytime he wants to. A while back Soulja Boy had a Louis Vuitton cake prepared for him on his birthday in 2013.
The singer’s affection for LV goes deeper than what can be perceived on the outside. For instance, during his recent interview with Power 105.1 Breakfast Club crew, Soulja couldn’t help demean Kanye’s Yeezies insinuating that they were substandard. This is what he had to say:
“You ain’t Walt Disney, you ain’t none of that, bro. You kissed them folks’ a– at Louis Vuitton. You kissed them folks’ a– at Adidas and you came out with two pair of goofy-a– tennis shoes,”
