American rapper, Soulja boy, has made a bold claim, stating that he is the ‘Godfather of Rap’ and also that he thought Canadian rapper Drake everything he knows.
Soulja made the claim while on the Breakfast Club, he also took credit for discovering rap trio Migos.
He disagreed with the notion that Drake is the biggest rapper alive, saying: “Stop playin’ with me like I ain’t teach Drake everything he knows. Y’all ain’t heard Drake on his first song ‘Miss Me’ … That’s Soulja! That’s my bar! He copied my whole f–kin’ flow!”
On the topic of discovering Migos, he said: “I called them n—as and I was like, ‘Yo n—a, that’s my beat. What’s up with y’all n—as,’” he explained. “‘Oh, my bad, bruh, you know how Zaytoven do. He send every rapper in the game the same beat.’ And I was like, ‘Okay, you know what? We got to make some music together.’ We got cool off that. That was 2012, n—a. I knew the Migos before Drake did.”
Soulja also said that his claim to being the Godfather of rap is backed up by facts.
“It’s facts. It sounds crazy. When people sit back and listen, they be like, ‘Yo, this n—a crazy.’ No! I’m just that n—a and them just facts. It sounds so unbelievable that I done did it, but I really done did it.”
