Soulja Boy Charged With Felony Gun Possession

Souljah Boy is being charged with felony gun possession of an assault weapon and possession of a firearm as a felon.  These charges come from his arrest over a probation violation back in December where cops found firearms in his house.  One of the guns found at his house was reportedly stolen from a cop car.  The also found a Mini Draco AR-15, an assault weapon which is illegal to own in the state of California.  Soulja Boy is facing up to 4 years in prison for the charges.  He is also supposed to have a boxing match with Chris Brown in March, his latest social media story.  I wondering what he needs all of those weapons for, he must be on someone’s hit list to risk his freedom like that.

New School vs Old School

I’ve had this debate with people for so long, I’d like to end it with the opinion of you.  Are the new school of artists not as talented as the old school artists from back in the day.  We all know the answer to that, but it seems the younger generation seems too always go for the new school artists.  But I only think that because they refuse to listen to any music that is more than a few months old in the first place.  I’m going to post videos of songs from the old school and compare them to new school artists that are actually in the same class and let you decide which is better.  This list will be added to on a regular basis, so check back often.  Please leave your answers in the comment section below.  Hope you enjoy and let me know what you think.
