Like it or not @souljaboy actually is a living legend. He did actually give many artists the formula for bypassing the music industry slave contracts that some of our favorites were and still are stuck in.
He showed not only artists but labels as well how to utilize the internet and streaming to create an organic following without a marketing and promo budget. Now countless artists utilize the internet almost exclusively to kick off and maintain their careers. All starting at 16 🤷🏿♂️
