Atlanta rapper Soulja Boy is feeling nice-nice with his hands. The hip-hop star and self-proclaimed creator of all rap game trends has revealed an interest in lacing up boxing gloves to take on anyone in the culture.
Soulja Boy’s Down To Fight Everyone
SB hit up his Twitter page to share his big revelation. Without name-dropping anyone in particular, Big Draco offered to see anyone in a four-cornered ring.
“’ll fight any rapper in the game in a boxing match 🥊”
Soulja Boy Might Pull A Travis Scott Move
Outside of pitching boxing opportunities, Soulja recently went to his social media pages in an attempt to get the attention of fast food giant McDonald’s. Without getting detailed, Soulja reached out to the company’s Twitter page with a proposition.
“I got a billion dollar idea. @McDonalds trust me”
To the surprise of probably everyone in the world except Big Draco, McDonald’s responded with “i’m listening” which prompted a signature burger pitch.
“The SouljaBurger but the secret is the ingredients I’ll dm them to you trust me this will go VIRAL! 🍔”
J Balvin’s McDonald’s Meal
In October 2020, buzz developed about a major McDonald’s collaboration going down with reggaeton musician J Balvin. His very own McDonald’s line-up included a a burger and fries along with a signature McFlurry.
The Colombian musician now has his very own special at McDonald’s based on his favorite order. The meal comes with a Big Mac, medium fries with ketchup and, curveball, an Oreo McFlurry. The order is on sale starting Monday through Nov. 1 in the US. Customers who purchase “The J. Balvin Meal” as an offer on the McDonald’s App will receive the Oreo McFlurry for free, according to a statement from the fast-food chain. Prices vary at different locations. (NY Post)
Balvin previously issued a statement to dish on the unexpected partnership.
“As a longtime McDonald’s fan, I am excited to join the short list of global icons who have had a meal named in their honor. I am looking forward to sharing my signature order with my fans, along with more surprises that are to come with this partnership. ¡Lego!” (Statement)
Travis Scott’s McDonald’s Burger Outselling Expectations
Last year, rap star Travis Scott‘s now-infamous $6 McDonald’s meal outperformed industry insiders and the restaurant’s own expectations. The burger, fries and soda meal forced some fans to have to wait for their nearest McDonald’s to re-up on ingredients.
The $6 collab meal, which features a Quarter Pounder with Cheese, bacon and lettuce, a medium order of fries with BBQ sauce and a Sprite, was scheduled to be available through Oct. 4. The promotion will continue but, starting Sept. 22, to get the Travis Scott Meal for $6 it will have to be ordered through the McDonald’s app. McDonald’s confirmed the supply shortages were due to overwhelming demand, the upcoming promotion shift to app-only and other details outlined in the memo to USA TODAY.

McDonald’s confirmed the high demand across social media and joked about expecting locations to sell out due to Scott’s popularity.
“it wouldn’t be a true @trvixXX collab if it didn’t sell out in some stores, right?”
