Soulja Boy Drops Spaced Out New Mixtape, ‘Bernard Arnault’
Depicting a Louis Vuitton briefcase and address book on its cover, the “limited edition collector’s item” tape — we’re’ not sure how a download can be made a collector’s item– is entitled ‘Bernard Arnault,’ after Europe’s richest person, the CEO of LMVH, which is Moët Hennessy Louis Vuitton.
The smoked out, syrup-powered EP features a slow-drawling Soulja Boy expounding stream of consciousness Lil B-inspired flows over a variety of spaced out beats, excitedly quipping “Juice!” and “S.O.D.” every third word, and mistakenly referring to his album as the ‘Robert Arnault mixtape.’
Though not entirely unlistenable, the 10-song EP concludes with an inferior remix of his whimsical summer jam ‘Zan With That Lean,’ before launching into a gratuitous ’20Min Freestyle,’ which features Soulja Boy at his most energetic, spitting line after line for literally 20-plus minutes.
If the rest of the tape is “Zan With That Lean,” then the last 20 minutes are aderall with cocaine — going on about nothing for way too long … and it doesn’t look like he’s going anyway any time soon.
