    When Soulja Boy first came out it had a rapper from Baton Rouge named that and threatened him. That's why he changed it to souljaboytellem


    Also Jay rock. There is a ? bounce rapper in new Orleans named that and a lot of folks confused Jay Rock with him and even thought he was ? .

    That their fault for not knowing the difference between Aesop (who uses this word?) and Asap. Rocky vs Rock could looked at as Rocky Balboa (a boxer) vs Rock n Roll. Still different. But he was named after Rakim Allah (Rocky for short). A$AP is a movement (rip bams). They are different names. Too bad they sound similar.

    There was a dope rapper named J Rock back in the early 90's to, he recorded with DJ Premier and Eazy Mo Bee and made a classic album 'Streewize'...

    It think you mistaken bruh. Soulja Boy was from Cleveland. He was from Mo Thugs and had a semi successful career. I'm surprised Soulja boy could just snatch his name like that.

    Not a rapper but when I was a kid I was always confused with

    Doctor Dre from Yo mtv raps and Dr.Dre

    Don't know if its a coincidence or if someone jacked the other. Crazy coincidence if they didn't know. Never heard of a Doctor Tre smh

    I heard that Vinnie Paz changed his name from Ikon the Verbal Hologram because there was a rapper already called 'Icon the Mic King', and that there was a physical confrontation... Not sure if its true or not...

    Texas feels like other states been biting
