Memes Rule Everything Around Me is back.

Another year of memes. A lot has happened in the first month of 2019. And to help us cope, we have a handful of great and hilarious memes.

There’s one meme, in particular, that should immediately come to mind — Soulja Boy‘s “Drake?!” meme. During a recent appearance on The Breakfast Club, the “Crank That” rapper insisted that he taught Drake everything that he knows. He accused the Toronto rapper of copying his verse from the 2007 song “What’s Hannenin.” (Drake interpolated the track on his 2010 song “Miss Me.”)

“Draaaaaaake? Draaaaaaake,” Soulja says immediately after Charlamagne tha God mentions the “In My Feelings” rapper. “The nigga that got bodied by Pusha T? The nigga that hiding his kid from the world, but his world want to hide from the kid? Aubrey Graham in a wheelchair? Draaaaaake? Y’all niggas better stop playing with me, man. Y’all talking about the lightskin nigga from Degeneres? Stop playing with me. Stop playing me like I ain’t teach Drake everything he know. Y’all ain’t hear Drake on his first song?”

The entire exchange is hilarious. Soulja mistakenly calling Degrassi — the Canadian teen drama Drake acted on — “Degenres” is the icing on the cake. But the rapper’s pronunciation of “Drake” incited countless memes, the moment perfectly articulating the shock one has when someone says something that strongly displeases them.

Even Soulja participated in it.

The moment even found itself on the latest episode of Saturday Night Live.

Soulja’s Breakfast Club appearance also spawned another meme. At one point while speaking with Charlamagne, Soulja goes on a rant about Kanye West.

“You kissed them folks ass at Louis Vuitton, you kissed them folks ass at Adidas and you came out with two pairs of goofy ass tennis shoes,” the rapper says before Charlamage interrupts with: “Say white folks, don’t just say folks.”

Soulja’s response? “Them crackers.”

Inevitably, the line became a meme.

Since then, Soulja’s “Drake?!” meme has been immortalized in a San Antonio mural. An image of the rapper with a comic bubble saying Drake’s name now exists on the side of the Supremes Sports Bar in San Antonio.

“I worked on another mural for them a few months ago,” Colton Valentine, the creator of the mural, explained to the San Antonio Current. “The owner called me a week ago and gave me free-range over the other side. I had just finished watching the hilarious interview and knew that I wanted to paint Soulja Boy’s face.”

As soon as I finished it, the painting was reposted within hours, I guess it was right on time,” he added. “The Shade Room, as well as a few other media spots, reached out to me on Instagram and asked to repost it.”

Soulja’s “Drake?!” wasn’t the only meme to dominate social media this month. In January, two documentaries dedicated to the epic fail that was the Fyre Festival was released — Netflix’s Fyre: The Greatest Party That Never Happened and Hulu’s Fyre Fraud. But it was the former that birthed this meme of Fyre Fest producer Andy King who, in the documentary, recounts a moment where he was prepared to perform oral sex on a customs agent in order to get them to release bottles of Evian water for the festival.

Ultimately, King goes on to say that he didn’t need to go down on the agent but the alleged incident quickly became a meme.

Following King’s transformation into a meme, he spoke with Netflix about it: “I’m now a noun, a verb, an adjective. It’s mind-boggling.”

“I just don’t wanna necessarily be known as the blowjob king of the world,” he added. “I’m blown away with the response of the documentary. Blown away.”

However, in light of King and Netflix’s brief chat, some people have rightfully acknowledged how Fyre Festival creator Billy McFarland asking King to do this sexual favor was an example of possible sexual harassment. King hasn’t addressed if he feels like a victim or not in regards to this but if anything it also shows just how far McFarland was willing to go to try and continue what was already a failing festival.

Ja Rule also became a meme as a result of his involvement with the Fyre Festival. Ja, who was a co-founder of the event, claimed that he was also a victim of McFarland’s misconduct, writing the following on Twitter following the release of the two Fyre documentaries.

Well, not only did people not believe him but they then turned the post into a meme.

It’s also worth nothing that even though McFarland is serving a six-year prison sentence after pleading guilty to multiple counts of fraud, Ja is still somehow free.

Surely the rest of 2019 will give us countless other memes but so far it’s starting off well. Check out some honorable mentions below.
