Who? Teenage American rapper.
Real? No, nonexistent tape hyped with photoshopped still.
(Another Soulja Boy sex tape rumor emerged in May 2010: see Soulja Boy + Sheneka Adams Sex Tape.)
Soulja Boy, aka Soulja Boy Tell ‘Em and born DeAndre Cortez Way, had a massive surprise hit in 2007 with “Crank That (Soulja Boy)”, a bouncy pop-rap number aimed at teens and tweens with a built-in dance crazy. Not surprisingly, a massive anti-Soulja Boy backlash followed among more hardcore hip hop artists and fans.
And not surprisingly, the backlash included gay rumors, a common diss in the highly homophobic hip hop world.
In September 2008, rumors of a Soulja Boy gay sex tape spread among hip hop websites. No actual video circulated, just one still image supposedly taken from the sex tape.
Within a few days, a reader at Gay Porn Blog exposed this image as a fake and identified its true source. The image turned out to be a frame from a gay porn flick with Soulja Boy’s face and tattoos photoshopped onto one of the pornstars
You can check out the gay porn source video at RedTube if you’re so inclined.
So there was no Soulja Boy gay sex tape. Someone intentionally launched the rumor with a photoshopped fake image, and dozens of gossip sites and blogs happily spread the rumor.
