American rapper DeAndre ‘Soulja Boy’ Cortez Way is back in the gaming business with with a smaller, cheaper console – and an entirely new website.

Soulja Boy’s latest console, called the ‘Mini SouljaGame,’ is powered by 3 AAA batteries, and features an advertised number of 688 titles. The system is listed at a price of $27.99 – a significant decrease from his previous consoles, which sold for upwards of $200.

The handheld console follows the release of his previous ‘Soulja Game’ system, which looked suspiciously similar to the PS Vita (although it ran on PSP specs).

Soulja Boy’s website, souljawatch.com, was taken offline shortly after the Soulja Game’s release, prompting speculation that the rapper had been met with legal action from Sony.

Since then, Soulja Boy has created a new website on which to sell his minute gaming system, under the name ‘Soulja Electronics.’

SouljaWatch.comSoulja Boy’s previous ‘Soulja Game’ console knocked off the PS Vita – but ran on PSP specs.

The rapper’s new site features an array of such products as the ‘Soulja Bot,’ ‘Soulja PS4 Keyboard,’ and even his classic ‘Soulja Pods’ wireless headphones.

Soulja Boy’s initial console line was removed from his store, due to a possible lawsuit from Nintendo. Despite two major setbacks, it doesn’t look like the ‘Crank Dat’ creator is backing down from his gaming dreams any time soon.

Soulja Boy is currently beefing with controversial YouTuber Jake Paul, who challenged the rapper to a boxing match in a Tweet on February 1.

Since then, the two have had a heated conversation over Instagram Live, where they appeared to make plans for a potential pay-per-view bout in the future – although the possibility of a legitimate boxing match between the personalities remains up in the air.

TikTok star Zoe LaVerne is facing massive backlash after multiple videos surfaced of her allegedly kissing an underage fan. This comes days after leaked Instagram conversations from her ex-boyfriend Cody Orlove and Amber VanPelt raised concerns of “very intense” interactions with an underage influencer.

A video on the ‘Def Noodles’ account featured a short clip showing the two. It was apparently only a short form of a much longer video showing more instances of the same behavior.

According to Def Noodles, LaVerne previously denied allegations of having a relationship with an underage person. This was in direct response to the allegations brought by Orlove’s hacked messages.

The video comes at a sensitive time for LaVerne, who was already getting heat for Orlove’s Instagram messages with VanPelt.

Zoe LaVerne once again removed herself from Instagram after the latest allegations.

In them, Orlove’s leaked exchange shows that he “left (LaVerne) because of her interactions with Connor. They got very intense and it’s something I do not stand by whatsoever. It’s p**dophillia.”

Another message, this time from Orlove to LaVerne, shows he cut communication from her. “My lawyers will handle the rest,” he said in reference to the “toxic” breakup between the two TikTok personalities.

LaVerne, who deleted her Instagram in mid-September in response to a separate lip-syncing debacle, once again removed herself from the Facebook-owned social platform.

In a private fandom account known to be run by LaVerne, she gave a message to her fans for her renewed hiatus from Instagram after the videos came out.

“Thank you for everything, really,” the account called ‘zlpfandom0.2’ wrote. “But for right now I don’t think I’ll be back on soial media again. I (still) have a lot to think about. I reall don’t wanna leave you guys but I’m tired of feeling this way. I’m tired of crying and hurting. It’s nothing but negativity to me anymore. I love you so much.”

LaVerne has over 17 million followers on TikTok and nearly 450,000 subscribers on YouTube. She’s been featured in TikToks and videos with other online celebrities ranging from Terin Sottile and ex-boyfriend Zephan Clark.

If the move offline is permanent, it’s not known if LaVerne will publicly respond to the latest videos that are surfacing.
