Soulja Boy almost committed suicide

 Soulja Boy


Dance Rap sensation Soulja Boy contemplated taking his own life to escape his problems after he was robbed at gunpoint.


Rapper Soulja Boy became an international sensation with his Crank Dat single, but his life came crashing down when six armed men stormed his property on December 30 (08).


He and his pals escaped unharmed but the terrifying incident was enough to make the rapper, real name DeAndre Ramone Way, re-evaluate his life in the limelight.


He admits he felt like suicide was the only solution.  Said the rapper, “After the robbery, that was the first time I thought to myself: ‘If I die right now, all of my problems will go away.”


Said a close friends of the rapper, “It was hard on him.  You could see everything he read on the Internet blogs was getting to him and things weren’t fun anymore.”


I would hate to think that something on this website helped contribute to Soulja Boy considering suicide at 18-years-old.  It almost makes me want to go buy his CD…well, not really.


But I’m glad her overcame such a depressing situation.  Are we really that hard on celebrities or are they just overly sensitive?

    I think that was horribale that those men came to his house like that. I think he has done nothing wrong but make hits and people are hating on him for no reason. They just need to leave that boy alone and let him go on with his life. He may not be the best rapper alive but he sure is doing his thing. He making his paper and thats all that matter’s. Personaly, i like him and his songs so y’all need to get of his jock!!!

    Celebrities are not overly sensitive. As celebrities when we look at them we tend to put them on a pedastal and think that they aren’t supposed to make any mistakes, we treat them like they are good, or like they aren’t supposed to have any flaws. But what happened to redemption, forgiving, and forgetting. The day I meet Jesus, will be the day that I will say I meet the first perfect person to ever walk the face of the earth. None of us are perfect and just like you and I get sensitive about certain and wonder if this is really the life that I want to live, so do some celebrities. They have problems just like us, and when they go through something; as their fans and loved ones we should stand by them and pray that everything works out in God’s and their favor. If not then you were never really a fan!

    It’s either really sad that he wants to resort to suicide to leave the business and even sadder if he is lookin for attention. If he feels that business just ain’t for him all he needs to do is stop making records not bring the mental and emotional anguish on his family, friends, and fans. Either way I will pray for that young man.
