Soulja or Souljah
Not to be (stereotypically)confused with Jesus freaks or aimless gang members, A Soulja, is anyone who has gone through hard times and fought against adversity. A Soulja's strength comes from within, strength of mind, body, soul, and character. A true Soulja would have learned from his/her mistakes, taken responsibility for his/her actions and gained strength to never back down. Someone who knows no limits to his/her own power and God given abilities. A person who serves their people, lives by a strict code, and is never afraid to stand up for what they believe in. Someone who is willing to fight for their home, family, property, etc, but is not necessarily part of a conventional service (Army, Marines, Navy, Air Force, etc).
A Soulja cannot be defined by race, age, background, location, or economic status.
"Did the crime and got caught up, fuck it, did my time like a soulja!"
After a lifetime of toil, a true soulja wakes up each morning optimistic.

The true meaning of (Soulja) is a person that was born, raised or living in a neighborhood plagued by drugs, violence and proverty. Survives by using extensive knowledge of the streets to obtain the basic necessities of life that most people take for granted (food, shelter and security).

Strenghts: the unique ability to adapt to any situation
Weakness: The over whelming desire for quick change
(Soulja)Someone fighting to survive at all cost! Turning nothing into something! Knows the feeling of choosing between eating or paying the electric bill!

A rag on head wearing, weed smoking thug or gangbanger, worthless turd who sits around all day drinking "40's" and lives off his baby mamas welfare because he has no ambition to work. Not to be confused with real "Soldiers" who actully fight and stand for something.
a "Soulja" wouldn't last 30 munutes at Camp Pendelton, Ft Bragg or any other basic training post.
