Soulja Boy is the victim of another death hoax on Twitter. #RIPSouljaBoy became a national trending topic on Tuesday with thousands of fans sharing mournful message after learning that the rapper had “died.”

“#RIPSouljaBoy cranked it all the way to heaven,” one fan wrote, while another added, “The “Soul” in Soulja Boy is gone… Rest in peace man.” It is 100 percent false. He is NOT dead. Just like he wasn’t dead when this rumor previously popped up in February. In fact, the rapper kept tweeting throughout Tuesday’s version of the hoax. Not that the pranksters who got the “RIP” trend going seem to care.

Gossip Cop is getting sick of these dumb hoaxes. In April, Dwayne Johnson, aka The Rock, was also the victim of a gross death hoax. The sick pranksters at Global Associated News “reported” that the “actor died while filming a movie in New Zealand.” Thankfully, Johnson and Soulja Boy are both alive and well.
