Crank... dat?

So word has it (and by word, I mean MTV), that Soulja Boy claims he's the best MC out there right now. And yes, I am referring to the same Soulja Boy that became famous by demonstrating his "catchy dance number" in an empty pool on youtube.

The artist made the claim in hopes that it would sway the opinions of the minds behind the MTV News "Hottest MCs in the Game" list. And he doesn't just want to be included in the ten, he wants to be the top one.

Soulja Boy even affirmed that he is hotter than Jay-Z. After all, he's "Grammy-nominated".

I'm sorry, Soulja Boy, but to me, you will always only be the artist responsible for the song that convinced that one lonely white guy at 38 Main in Winooski that he looked cool dancing, even if alone.

Mortifying.

There is of course one thing that can make up for his "ringtone raps" and cocky attitude. And that is this:

A part of me is dying to teach the routine to my own little dance class at the Y.

But a bigger part of me really doesn't want to have to answer the first five-year-old to ask, "What does 'Super Man that ho' mean?"
