DeAndre Way bka Soulja Boy is in the news yet again, this time bumping heads with his former manager, Philip Ransom. Soulja claims that Ransom took advantage of him when he was young and is suing Ransom for having him sign contracts he now sees as, "unconscionable, oppressive and unjust." The contracts allegedly give a significant amount of his money to Ransom, including 5% of Soulja's income "forever," as well as 50% his copyrights to his label. Ransom is taking action against these allegations, which he claims are false, by suing Soulja for money he's owed from his time as Soulja's manager.
