“Crank That” is biggest-selling digital single of all time

Seventeen-year-old Soulja Boy has sold more than three million legal downloads of “Crank That (Soulja Boy)” — the first song ever to do so. It has also sold more than three million ring tones, was nominated for a Grammy (for Best Rap Song) and stayed at No. 1 on the Hot 100 chart for seven weeks. The accompanying music video has been viewed 28 million times on YouTube, and the instructional dance video has been viewed 22 million times.

“I can’t thank my fans enough,” says Soulja Boy. “Without them, all of this wouldn’t have been possible. The support they give me is beyond incredible. I have so many Soulja Boy Tell’em projects ready and I will continue to give them what they need in 2008. Yuuuuaaaa!!”

This kid, and people like him are the reason why people have just stopped listening to Hip-Hop all together. I get embarrassed when ever I hear his songs in public. He is the REASON, why Rap music is as far away from it’s original state as it is today. I only hope that we can get our culture of music back to the original state of intelligence that it once was. KRS-ONE, and CHUCK-D… Should I say more??? Make REAL music brother…
