Uh...yeah. And Amy Winehouse is the most sober singer in England.

Neither statement could possibly be true but according to MTV...Soulja Boy puts himself ahead of Jay-Z, Lil Wayne, Kanye, and whoever else is out there right now as the hottest rapper alive.

If we were talking about looks, maybe, just maybe, he'd have an argument in the 13-18-year-old bracket for most attractive young MC's. His babyface and Southern drawl has probably won him some tail...or "cut up" as they call it in Atlanta since his hit song, "Crank That" started selling ringtones by the millions.

But Soulja Boy, legitimately, wants to argue that he's the best rapper alive.

Umm, on what planet?

The dude rhymes like he was born with an extra chromosome.

He's got one hit. Alright, one and a half. "Soulja Girl" isn't bad.

But that's it.

I don't know. If anybody seconds his notion that he's better than:




Mos Def

Lil Wayne


My Grandmother


Black Thought


Talib Kweli

Garcia...etc, then please chime in.

Confidence is one thing but he's stepping on a lot of people with that comment.
