Soulja Boy was Born in Chicago,iLL in 1990. I was raised there by this mother & grandmother. me his first rap when he was 5 years old in Shy-town.
I and his mother Lisa later moved to Atlanta,Ga. in 1996. Atlanta is where he learned how to do do Beats and dance. The snap music was just coming into play while he was in Atlanta. He mixed his Chicago style flow with his Atlanta beats and then the hits started coming.He was in Atlanta from age 6 to the age of 14.
At the age of 14 he moved to Batesville,Ms. with his dad Tracy. Batesville is 40miles south of Memphis,Tn. on I-55. It was there in batesville that he picked -up the Memphis style of rap. His dad brought him a in house studio and the rest is history.
