Soulja Boy's '1UP' cover appreciation post

March 18, 2011|By Wesley Case

Truth be told, I haven't downloaded this tape yet but it deserves hard-drive space based on the cover alone. Soulja (who I've generally enjoyed his entire career) has always voiced his love of anime (including sketching his own characters) and video games, and this loveably goofy cover marries the two hilariously. Props to Beezy for being true to himself and not shying away from things normally considered nerdy. I can't stop grinning when I see it.

I'll download it this weekend, and if it's any good I'll let you all know.

UPDATE: I'm probably the opposite of a manga head so I'm happy Comics Alliance points out the Soulja Boy cover is an homage to "Naruto."
