Soulja Boy made a stunning announcement to his legions of adoring fans on Wednesday.
“I am now the owner of Atari,” the rapper revealed on Instagram.
I just signed two deals with Atari. I’m the owner. The first rapper to ever own a video game company.
It looked like a match made in heaven. A struggling gaming firm had found a celebrated entrepreneur with the industry credentials to return it to past glories.
Unfortunately, cracks have already appeared in the relationship.
In a tweet apparently referencing Soulja Boy’s comments, Atari said the title of CEO “belongs to Wade Rosen.”
We know that CEO of Atari is a dream job, but that honor belongs to Wade Rosen

Admittedly, Soulja Boy has a history of making outlandish claims. He also says he came up with the idea of Facetime and was the first rapper on YouTube.
But in this case, Soulja Boy has the receipts.

At the time of writing, Atari had produced no evidence that Soulja Boy does not own the company. We’ll update this story if that changes.
