The Flashback Fridays For 5/5/2017: Soulja Boy - Crank Dat (Soulja Boy) (2007)
Yes ladies and gentlemen. It is the 10 year anniversary of a song that truly did change the world at the time.
Back in 2007 at the time, a 16-year old named DeAndre Way from Atlanta came on the screen and, with his own beat made on Fruit Loops Studio, produced a tone that would later pave the way to international success and recognition for him. Way would go by the name Soulja Boy Tell 'Em, and the rest is history.
"Crank Dat (Soulja Boy)" was the dance craze that took over 2007 and has etched itself as one of the most memorable dance song hits of modern times.
Of course as we all know, Soulja Boy failed to replicate the highs of his first single at such a precocious age, but has continued to put out some decent tunes from here and there on the hip-hop level. And even though he spends his time more as a Love and Hip-Hop reality star, at just 26, there is still time for Soulja to still regain some prominent shine.
So, in a special edition of The Flashback Fridays, it's the timeless classic "Crank Dat (Soulja Boy)" from 2007.
This is The Whole Delivery.
