Soulja Boy, real name DeAndre Cortez Way, rose to fame in 2007 with his self-produced debut single “Crank That (Soulja Boy),” which spent seven weeks at No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart. The song’s accompanying dance became a viral sensation and propelled the rapper to mainstream success at just 16 years old.
