Rapper Soulja Boy To Launch Esports Franchise
During a brief on-camera interview with TMZ, rapper Soulja Boy tells the outlet that he has plans to start up his own esports franchise.
He wants to hire on the streamer Ninja, though he acknowledges it may be a difficult feat. He says, however, that he two are "close friends" and that Ninja helped get him verified on Twitch.
“We’re gonna be finding talent, hiring talent,” he tells the outlet. He says that he's particularly interested in putting together teams for Fortnite, Call of Duty, Overwatch, and Counter Strike.
“It was just inspiring for me, so here we are,” he says. “I’m multitasking, man. Music, tech, everything.”
How exactly this will pan out, however, remains to be seen. The details are slim and a bit hazy, but hopefully he'll let the public know more soon.
