William Shakespeare Inspires Soulja Boy
Soulja Boy has made a startling announcement. While many rappers draw inspiration from soul legends like Marvin Gaye and Otis Redding, the 21-year-old rapper admits that his inspiration comes from English playwright, William Shakespeare – whose work will have left many of Soulja Boy’s fans shaking their heads in despair when they have had to cover his work for English Literature exams...
Soulja Boy told Spin Magazine: "The quote, 'To be or not to be', represents having no fear in whatever you do in life. It says if you're going to pursue something you go at it with everything you got.
"When I decide what type of music I'm going to create in the studio, I think about that saying and what I'll be representing. If I'm going to make music for the streets or the clubs or whatever, I go at it with 110 percent."
