The rapper Soulja Boy and video games shouldn’t even belong to the same phrase, yet the artist can’t help but shoot big ones: now apparently “has acquired” Atari and means “sell it“. The quotes, as the reckless rapper has accustomed us, have now become a must: it is not his first tango with video games.
In the past, it has tried to break ground in the portable console market with its own platform, full of titles it does not own the rights to and emulators to play them with. Obviously, there was no lack of complaints from the true console manufacturers. Now, the Atlanta artist claims to be in possession of the video game company.
“I acquired Atari,»Declares Soulja Boy, before talking about“ selling it ”. “I own the Atari of video games,As far as you can translate the sentence in a meaningful way. “We’re going to sell the company for … $ 140 million,»Then continues the Atlanta artist, who is not even a stranger toentrepreneurship in full.
We remember in fact that, in its bizarre financial firms, Soulja Boy sold watches, received $ 10,000 for his verses in other people’s songs, and tripled the profits of his soap company, The Soap Shop, during the pandemic. In addition, he also delights as an aspiring boxer. In short, the conditions for a triumph in the videogame sector would seem to be all there.
We know that CEO of Atari is a dream job, but that honor belongs to Wade Rosen

Atari did not take long to comment on this, and given Soulja Boy’s past with video games we doubted something other than a sound denial (above). We would say that this is the strangest news of the week, but just yesterday we opened the day by talking about a player from League of Legends and his arrest. Things that happen.
Soulja Boy’s first “console” dates back to 2018, but on December 31 of that year Nintendo forced him to legal avenues to withdraw it from the market, redirecting the official website to the Nintendo 3DS store. Before the forced withdrawal, the rapper stated that the platform would support Fortnite (just before another denial). The new platform, or allegedly, dates back to this year.
Now, we have the official answer and she is sarcastic exactly what we would have expected: “We know being our CEO is the perfect job for everyone, but that honor goes to Wade Rosen.»The denial came just after the first draft of the article: of course it didn’t take much! Leave an F in the comments, thanks.
