Given the amount of joy Soulja Boy has given us in the form of a dance we spent months annoying our friends with, it’s painful to find out that he and his family have suffered a tragedy. Reportedly, Soulja Boy’s brother Deion Jenkins died in a car accident Sunday night. Soulja Boy tweeted about his brother yesterday, writing “at home crying my eyes out I can’t believe my Lil bro is gone… today is so not my day.. RIP lil brother love you always ” Producer CEO Miami Mike tweeted his condolences to the rapper as well, saying “The Flags are @ Half Staff @ the Offices of SODMG & PTE, R.I.P. to @Souljaboy little brother who passed-way in a auto crash last nite ”
According to MediaTakeOut, 14-year-old Deion was riding in a car in Charlestown, Mississipi when the accident occured. We hope Soulja Boy and his family are doing as well as they possibly can given the circumstances. At least they have the consolation of knowing how cool it must have been for him to have Soulja Boy as an older brother.
