Ok, so here’s how this is going to go down. If you’re a teenage girl you’re going to hyperventilate over the new Soulja Boy and Drake track Play Ball, plus probably make it your new ringtone and opening track on your MySpace page. If you’re an old school hip-hop head you’re going to take one listen to Play Ball and think it’s the latest sign of the impending hip-hop apocalypse. Personally, I can identify much more with the latter group: the auto-tuned production by Boi-1da is aggravating, Drake loses some of the credibility he amassed with his Forever flow and Soulja Boy, well, that’s just SB being SB (“girls suck on my body like mosquitoes“). Still, I won’t be surprised if it’s a hit: BET, MTV and radio eat this stuff up. Play Ball is off Paranormal Activity, one of three new mixtapes Soulja Boy is dropping on October 31. Stay tuned for more (hopefully better) tracks from Soulja Boy’s impending mixtape onslaught.
