Soulja Boy is taking a page out of Chris Brown's book, unveiling a new blond hairdo, just in time for summer. The 'Crank That' rapper showed off his hair color on both his Twitter and Tumblr pages, and was quickly inundated with a flood of compliments on his new look.

"I swear females on twitter try their hardest to get me to blush... haha..," he wrote in response to fans.

Unlike Brown, the Atlanta MC opted for a partial dye job, versus coloring his entire head. Although Soulja Boy didn't reveal the inspiration behind the hair color, he revealed to us that he has been inspired lately to switch up his look, mimicking Tupac's fade haircut in the 1992 film 'Juice,' earlier this year. "Really he was just my favorite character in the movie," he said. "I just felt like I wanted to get the same haircut that Pac had in the 'Juice' movie. After I got the haircut everybody was just going crazy."

As of late, the 20-year-old has been splitting time between acting and music, and is in talks to audition for the lead role in the forthcoming Tupac biopic. He also plans on releasing a documentary later this year.
