Soulja Boy performed in San Jose ("KISS ME" Concert) on May 14th, 2009. Soulja Boy Tell 'Em was born in Chicago and moved to Atlanta at age six, where he became interested in rap music. At age 14, he moved to Batesville, Mississippi with his father, who provided a recording studio for Way to explore his musical ambitions. This event was filmed by Shaun Tai for SHAUN TAI Films / ZTY MEDIA.
Critics and hip-hop figures such as Snoop Dogg and Method Man cite Soulja Boy as artistically typical of contemporary rap trends such as writing for the lucrative ringtone market, and the ascendence of "Southern hip hop", emphasizing catchy music that discards rap's traditional emphasis on message. Soulja Boy identifies his goal as making upbeat, party-themed music that avoids the negative, violent image that he sees in most hip-hop. Despite this, his music has been banned from some school dances for sexual, violent content or innuendo.
ARTIST: Soulja Boy (Soulja Boy Tell 'em)
