Five years ago, Soulja Boy topped the Billboard Hot 100 with his “Crank Dat (Soulja Boy)” single, which was the subject of much scrutiny. Soulja Boy was critically-panned for his “sub-par” lyrics, but praised for his strong business mind. Before the age of eighteen, Soulja Boy had already become a millionaire.

TMZ recently obtained footage of Soulja Boy crashing his red Bentley into oncoming traffic. After causing the accident, Soulja Boy blamed the other driver and now her husband is speaking out.
