Soulja Boy Tell ‘Em’s 2013 hasn’t exactly been the smoothest year of his career, or personal life for that matter. Just when we thought SB would close out his 365 on a quiet note, a woman by the name of Diamond Shantaniece MacKay (not to be confused with on-again-off-again girlfriend, also named Diamond) slapped the 23-year-old with legal docs claiming her fathered her 5-year-old son.
MacKay’s revelation is one of many awkward incidents the Atlanta native has gotten himself into as of late. On a career front, Soulja Boy dropped a few projects (including the King Soulja mixtape in March, and an All Black EP) yet hasn’t been able to recapture the momentum of some of his earlier work. We have to give him credit for trying, but that recognition doesn’t come without acknowledging a few missteps, bad decisions, and a tattoo that he should’ve probably thought through a litter harder.
In honor of 2013 creeping out the door, take a look back at some of Soulja Boy’s most struggalicious moments from the last 350 plus days.
Hopefully, 2014 will be better.
