News: Soulja Boy Strikes Sneaker, Clothing Deal


By Brandi Hopper

The rapper who had an entire generation and then some cranking that to his No. 1 single is about to try his hand at dressing the same crowd.

Soulja Boy will join forces with renowned Dallas graffitti artist and Yums sneaker designer, Tex, to put out his own signature shoe with the label’s Block Star line of sneakers, according to PR Newswire. The two will also design street-oriented clothing for Yums Shoes.

"The shoes and clothing line allow the wearer to express his or her personality, because each shoe is an individual piece of art,” said Yums CEO, JP McDade. “Soulja Boy Tell'em will be able to assist in designing shoes and apparel exactly the way he would want them to look. And with Interscope's considerable marketing savvy, we expect this effort to be our biggest, most far-reaching yet."

But super-producer Mr. Collipark hinted at even bigger things poppin’ on the horizon for the young rapper.

"We are very excited and have high expectations for this opportunity and future Soulja Boy Tell'em endeavors, including movies and television," he said. Soulja Boy is signed to Collipark Music/ Interscope Records.

Not everyone’s as impressed. As SOHH previously reported, Soulja Boy has recently been embroiled in a YouTube war of words with OG rapper Ice-T, who accused him of single-handedly killing hip-hop.

Eli Whitney made it OHH!
Watch me plant it watch it GROW!
Watch me crank that cotton gin and cotton I will SEW!
Now watch me YOU! Crank that cotton gin

Eli Whitney tell 'em
I got a new machine that's gon' make cotton pickin' real easy.
You gotta put the cotton in then crank it 'till it come back out

Eli Whitney made it OHH!
Watch me sell it now I'm paid
Cotton I will SEW!
Now watch me show it to the slaves
Tell 'em all the way to do it
This machine will make they day
Except now
I just revitalized the slave trade
That's cotton they be plantin'
And now I got Frederick Douglass doin' all his rantin'
You catch me at the ol' plantation yes I run it every day
Abolitionists gettin' mad cuz I'm supportin' slavery

I'm workin' all the slaves
Watch me put 'em in they graves
I tell 'em to pick cotton
And they all do what I says
Nat Turner wants to kill me
Eli Whitney, I'm the man
He be lookin' at my slaves
Thinkin', "I am gonna free them!"
They will plant
No, no I can't
No, you can't invent like me
Yo, so don't invent like me
Folk, I seen you try to invent like me
Your machine was inefficient

Cotton's fresh now in the States
Makin' money and it's great
Watch the slaves crank cotton gins and abolitionists hate
Abolitionists hate
Abolitionists hate
Abolitionists hate
Abolitionists hate
Abolitionists hate
Abolitionists hate
Abolitionists hate
Abolitionists hate
Slavery back to the fore
The North's gon' even up the score
Cuz' they gonna send they troops to fight the Civil War
Fight the Civil War
Fight the Civil War
Fight the Civil War
Fight the Civil War

Yo, it's Eli Whitney.
Shout out to Catherine Greene for the idea for the C-Gin.
But to Joseph Watkins and Hodgson Holmes... This patent shit is MINE! MOTHER-FUCKER!
Shout out to P. Sullivan for the song idea.
Free labor ideology can suck my dick.
Fuck the free world, BIATCH!
