Los Angeles, CA – Following a social media rant aimed at Tyga, Soulja Boy fell victim to ruthless internet trolls when several of them accused the 28-year-old artist of being on crack.
They cited an old photo of the Chicago-born rapper and compared it to a current one. While some were quick to point out he’s simply “just aging,” others weren’t so sure.

Soulja decided to face the rumors head-on and hopped on Instagram Live where he explained his appearance has nothing to do with drugs. He reminded his fans he was recently in a terrible car accident that almost cost him his life.
“First of all, I wanna say for everybody that’s saying Soulja looks like he’s on drugs, Soulja Boy look like he on crack, he on powder,” he said. “Bitch, don’t play with me like that! I ain’t never did crack in my life, bitch. I’m a millionaire, I’m worth muthafuckin’ $30 million nigga. I never did cocaine in my life.
“Don’t play with me like that. I just was in a car accident two days ago, I almost lost my life. I hit my face on the dashboard and my shit swole. I need surgery and shit. Don’t be making fun of my fucking appearance and my fucking looks. Talkin’ about like I’m on drugs. Y’all better suck my fuckin’ dick … I never did crack in my fucking life. Y’all some pussies for saying that.”

Last weekend, Soulja Boy’s car was swept up in the California mudslides as he was cruising through Malibu. While his car was destroyed, he was able to walk away with his life.
“I’m just thankful to be alive,” he said later. “I don’t care about the car it’s materialistic you can’t take it with you when you’re gone.”
