Soulja Boy is a main cast member on the first two seasons of Love & Hip Hop: Hollywood and the first two episodes of season three. He is one of the show's original eight cast members.
Before Love & Hip Hop[edit | edit source]
Soulja Boy is a Grammy Award-nominated rapper, record producer and entrepreneur. He is best known for his 2007 Billboard Hot 100 hit single, "Crank That (Soulja Boy)".
Love & Hip Hop franchise (2014–2016)[edit | edit source]
The first season of Love & Hip Hop: Hollywood chronicles his relationship with Nia Riley and his struggles with fidelity while on the road touring. In season two, he has a fling with her best friend Nastassia, igniting multiple altercations between the two girls.
On August 19, 2016, Soulja Boy posted a video of himself on social media, brandishing a gun and threatening to kill Nia Riley and her alleged boyfriend at the time, Skrill Dilly. After two episodes of season three, Soulja was removed from the opening credits and had nearly all of his scenes deleted, essentially being reduced to a background extra in the two remaining episodes he did appear. On October 4, 2016, Soulja posted "I've decided to quit Love & Hip Hop. I feel my brand is too big for the show now. It's too ratchet." Series creator Mona Scott-Young responded by reposting a meme implying that he had actually been fired. None of this is revealed at any point onscreen or discussed at the reunion, and Soulja is never mentioned on the show again.
