So, what do you do when no one’s paying attention to your music? You pull a publicity stunt!
These days, the traditional means of getting attention involves exposure of your body parts. I guess Soulja Boy decided to give it a try as he “accidentally” posted a revealing photo of himself on tumblr…
The young rapper shocked everyone when he uploaded a naked full frontal photo of himself to his Tumblr blog. Since we live in the internet age, as you all know, once you put something on the internet, you can never fully take it back. So unfortunately for Soulja Boy, deleting the photo from his blog did absolutely nothing. Within minutes, the photo went viral, hitting numerous gossip blogs and social networks. Soulja Boy claims that the whole incident isn’t a publicity stunt, and that the photo made the appearance on the blog by accident.
He later blogged on his Tumblr an apology to his fans and anyone else who caught a glimpse of his “little soulja.” He writes:
It’s kind of tough to accidentally blog a nude photo, and the timing of the whole thing seems…suspect. Especially since he is currently promoting a mix tape.Soulja Boy leaked his penis on the web in just enough time to promote his new mixtape.“I apologize to ever [sic] seen that, accident.”
This wouldn’t be the first time that Soulja Boy has been accused of relying on a publicity stunt to save his less than hot career. The rapper is said to have faked a Twitter beef with Bow Wow to help promote his mix tape and help Bow Wow increase the declining ratings of 106 & Park.
