Cole admitted that he used to be a hater but has since grown to appreciate Soulja Boy's contributions to the music scene.
In response, Soulja Boy took to Twitter to express his displeasure, accusing Cole of hating on him and poking fun at Cole's age. The "Crank That" rapper suggested that Cole should not bring him up in conversations, highlighting his own impact on the industry.
The situation escalated as fans and observers chimed in on Twitter, discussing the legacy and influence of Soulja Boy in the rap game. Big Sean was also mentioned, as he had previously been compared to Soulja Boy but had expressed his admiration for Soulja's work, stating that Soulja Boy was one of his favorite artists.
This back-and-forth between the artists and the public reaction underscores the complex dynamics of respect and recognition in hip-hop culture. It also reflects on how artists perceive each other's work and the evolution of their views over time.
