I don't want to create music for video games, I just love music. I'm dissing Soulja Boy cause you can tell there's no passion in his music, he just makes repitition. Popularity means SQUAT in the situation cause anyone can do what he does with little effort. Just find something catchy, repeat it over and over again, and viola, you're soulja boy. There's even no effort in making his musical compositions. My friend who knows shit about music did can play that one stupid song that's popular "Superman" or whatever the Heck it's called. Eminem is a musician, Biggie is a musician, Soulja Boy is a disgrace to music everywhere.
