Earlier this month, Soulja Boy – real name DeAndre Cortez Way – hit out at the Canadian musician during an appearance on The Breakfast Club. “Draaake?” he responded to claims that the Scorpion artist is the biggest rapper in the world.
“The n**** that got bodied by Pusha T? The n**** that’s hiding his kid from the world, but the world won’t hide from the kid. Aubrey Graham in the wheelchair?” he added.
Now, SNL comedian Chris Redd has spoofed the popular clip by appearing as Cortez Way on the show’s regular ‘Weekend Update’ segment.
Appearing alongside Michael Che last night (January 26), Redd as Soulja Boy was asked to share his thoughts on the US government shutdown – before announcing that he’s “gonna run for president”.
“Soulja Boy Crank That 2020,” he added.
When questioned by Che if he’s got what it takes to take down President Donald Trump, Redd replied: “Truuuump!? Truuuump!? The dude that got bodied by the popular vote?”
Referring to the rapper’s claims that Drake ripped him off, he said: “Without bitch Soulja, there wouldn’t even be no Trump!”
Meanwhile, Cardi B has also hit out at Trump over the government shutdown during an Instagram broadcast. “This shit is really fucking serious, bro, this shit is crazy,” she said. “Our country is in a hellhole right now: all for a fucking wall.”
Snoop Dogg weighed in on the issue too, calling Trump a “piece of shit” and urging US citizens not to vote for him in 2020.
In other news, Soulja Boy was involved in a “very bad” car crash earlier this month after getting caught up in flash floods and mudslides in Malibu. “My car got stuck too almost went into the ocean,” he told his Twitter followers of the accident.
