Soulja Boy, “No dad, I don’t do drugs.”

Written by thejasminebrand in Blog

Soulja Boy is gracing the cover of Vibe’s first ever digital cover.

Soulja Boy briefly recounts how his parents discovered his plans to become a famous rapper.

“My Dad was on me heavy about drugs,” recalls. “He found a little sack in my bedroom, but it wasn’t from drugs. They came from some earrings that I bought. He and my stepmother kept asking if I do drugs. So I finally just said, ‘Look, I rap. I’ma be a famous rapper. My name’s Soulja Boy.’ And started showing them everything I was doing on the Internet— my MySpace page and everything.” Read the full issue here.
