It hasn’t been a great year for Soulja Boy, has it? Between the fact that he got caught lying about owning his own private jet and then getting a bunch of fully justified heat after he wrote a song bashing the American troops … yeah, Soulja Boy is just an ass. Now he’s suing his former manager, Ransom, because he claims he violated industry standards in how much he was taking out of his paycheck, except whoops! It totally was within the norm and Soulja Boy is just a complete effing derp. TMZ reports:
Soulja Boy was nothing more than an ignorant 16-year-old when he skyrocketed to fame in 2007 — and now, the rapper’s suing his ex-manager … claiming the guy took advantage of his naive teenage brain. Soulja filed the documents in Georgia Superior Court, claiming his manager/lawyer Philip Ransom coerced him into signing multiple contracts when he was just starting out — contracts that were “unconscionable, oppressive, and unjust.” According to the docs, the contracts included a management agreement that gave Ransom 5% of Soulja’s income … forever … relating to work the rapper completed while Ransom was his manager. Another contract allegedly gave 50% of all Soulja’s music copyrights to his record label — a deal the rapper now claims is “commercially unreasonable” and “contrary to music industry custom and practice.” But in reality, Soulja’s just bitching because he didn’t read the fine print — the contracts Soulja signed ARE industry standard … some recording contracts even take 100% of the copyrights.
So basically, Soulja Boy wants more money and his excuse for it is “I’m a colossal moron, so gimme gimme gimme.” Christ, he had one song. Actually, even less than that because that Crank That barely counts as music so much as it sounds like what happens when someone’s asshole tries to commit a hate crime. A talentless person hasn’t made that much money off of the sounds of Irritable Bowel Syndrome since Adam Sandler‘s last movie.
