Soulja Boy Claims TikTok Wouldn't Be A Thing Without Him

Soulja Boy has claimed to be the very first rapper to do various things across the music industry, giving himself his flowers for being such an influence in the rap world and defining his legacy through his status as a pioneer in multiple fields. Hip-hop fans should know the influence that “Crank Dat” and the song’s dance had on the world, becoming one of the first viral dances to ever take over the internet. If you ask Soulja, he’ll tell you that he created “going viral.” 

On Wednesday (March 23), the 31-year-old hip-hop artist joined the It’s Tricky podcast with Raquel Harper, where he claimed that TikTok would not exist without him. We can confirm that Big Draco is not one of the creators of the social media platform, but he definitely has a point that he helped to popularize short-form social videos on the internet.
