Who is Soulja Boy Tell ‘Em? He is a entrepreneur, rapper, writer, social media marketing genius, and the youngest person ever to make it to the number one spot on the Billboard Hot 100 list.

The instructional video quickly became a hit reaching more than 86 million views. When asked why include a dance for his songs, Soulja said: “It makes it funner!”
At 14, Soulja’s Father gave him his first computer, and very quickly he discovered the power of the Internet. His entrance into the social media world was through a website called SoundClick which he describes a the underground’s artists’ billboard chart, for “everyone one the streets that’s unsigned”. When SoundClick began offering downloads for 1.99 and splitting the income 50/50 with artists, Soulja began making his money averaging around 19,000 downloads a day, making nearly 100,000.00 in revenue.
After Soulja Boy Tell ‘Em created his YouTube and Myspace pages he began to blow up. With YouTube’s setup for ad revenue-sharing, he began making even more money.
