Soulja Boy is the most misunderstood rapper on the airwaves right now. I don't think people understand his modernist understanding and use of the medium. Clement Greenberg recognized flatness as a key characteristic of modernist painting in that flatness constitutes a recognition of the limits of the medium of painting. Likewise, Soulja Boy's lyrics and minimalist beats are decidedly modernist in that they push the limits of hip-hop clichés.
Soulja Boy is the final destination of what we know as rap--expect post-modern rap sometime within the next ten years or so.
