This Soulja is AWOL

Soulja Boy
You’d think after having a Top 100 single, Soulja Boy wouldn’t have to make his own clothes anymore.

Soulja Boy Tell’Em, the 17-year-old Southern Rap wunderkind behind the hit single “Crank That (Soulja Boy), won’t be coming to Las Vegas anytime soon. His “21 and Under Tour,” which was also set to feature Lil Mama, V.I.C. and Tiffany Evans, has been canceled — and that included a May 4 date at the House of Blues. No one seems to have an explanation for the cancellation — sorry, postponement:

“It’s been postponed. That’s all I know,” says an Interscope Records representative.

Maybe it’s because, despite having a U.S. Hot 100 topper with “Crank That,” the MySpace-spawned Soulja Boy’s actual fan base is as nonexistent as his future in music. Of course, we could be wrong. But we rarely are. Either way, if you actually bought tickets to this show or know someone who has, a House of Blues representative says that refunds will be available at point of purchase.
