Soulja Boy – Life After Fame

Soulja_Boy_Life_After_Fame-front-large (1)

By way of Chicago and Mississippi and now officially an ATLien, young Soulja Boy is on his grown man grind with a new project. Continuing on his busy season streak after releasing Cuban Link (EP), King Soulja, Foreign 1 & 2 all within months of each other this year, the SODMG boss don is back for the summer with an exclusive drop. With official beats courtesy of himself, SB carries his own weight on this offering to the streets.

Here are the SOHH.com 5 Reasons to download Life After Fame.

1. Free Album

Life After Fame was originally scheduled to be an album. Soulja released a single titled “Ridin’ Round” in preparation for the LP release, but at some point he decided to unleash LAF as a mixtape instead. Since it’s come out it has been downloaded over 25,000 times, gaining bronze status on popular mixtape site DatPiff.com. Soulja has a way of keeping relevancy in this iffy market by feeding the streets with constant releases. No longer reliant upon a major label schedule or demands, SB can give his fanbase music almost whenever he feels the need to. “Ridin’ Round” ended up not being included on this tape but can be purchased on iTunes.

2. Stacks On Deck

Soulja Boy is the CEO of his own company Stacks On Deck Entertainment. Once upon a time he gave his co-sign to artists like Chief Keef, Riff Raff and Lil’ B who all have made waves throughout the industry. Lately SB has been successful in the production lane, getting beats to some big names like Kanye West and Lil’ Wayne. Global Grind spoke with SB last month to get his thoughts in working with Yeezy. “It was good working with Kanye. He asked me to make some beats for him. I had been doing my own thing with my beats and sh*t like that. He just reached out ya know – it was real cool. He was like ‘Yo Soulja I need some hard beats – I’m in Hawaii.’ SB also talked about expanding his fanbase by doing things outside the box, like his appearance on hit reality show The Bachelorette on ABC. “That’s a whole different crowd that don’t know about Soulja Boy. I’m just trying turn up. I had fun though. Everybody is different. You got stuff you do with Hip Hop and urban culture, then you have stuff you do when you just wanna have fun and turn up with pop culture.”

3. Do It All

Soulja Boy has created a marketing and promotions empire for not just music, but everything else in between. From shirts, hats, jewelry and even mentions on social networks like Twitter and Instagram, the young entrepreneur is extremely creative and resourceful when it comes to business. SB is a product of the internet era and is one of the best in utilizing it’s unlimited capabilities. He has always been very hands on with his supporters and that has added to his longevity thus far.

4. Turn Up Time

Life After Fame includes Soulja’s signature sounds and productions. He keeps it simple yet catchy. SB brings high energy on songs “Alotta Bandz” and “Flexin”. If you don’t mind a little auto-tune check out “In A Ditch” and “Stuntin”. Although Soulja doesn’t mind letting the listeners know how hard he can floss, there are also some harder joints on here like “Call Of Duty”.
