2 Soulja Boy Soulja Boy DeAndre Cortez Way, known professionally as Soulja Boy Tell 'Em, or simply Soulja Boy, is an American rapper, record producer, actor, and entrepreneur.

If this guy or Lil Jon didn't spread the Southern rap sound, everyone would be original. Now even east coast and west coast artists all sound like trap music.

You can call him one of music history's worst artists. If he never had a career, hip hop would still be alive.

Ya bitch ya is actually a song

6 Suge Knight

If Suge Knight had not existed, then the two greatest rappers of all time would almost definitely still be alive. Therefore, if not directly, he did in some way cause their deaths, and because Tupac and Biggie were the epitome of hip-hop, you could say that Suge killed hip-hop.

If there is a guy who could literally kill rap, it’s Suge Knight. He’s linked to the deaths of Tupac, Biggie, and Eazy E.

Because Everyone knows because of him 2pac and Biggie are dead
