Soulja Boy’s career has been a curious case with a lot of ups, downs and head scratching incidents. But the 23-year-old rapper is currently seeing a resurgence in the clubs via recent tracks, “We Made It (Remix)” featuring Drake and “Millions.” Can he keep the momentum going? The Atlanta MC recently chopped it up with DJ Whoo Kid and talked about his latest Drake collab and his recent arrest for gun possession.
Soulja’s new Drake collab has been a mainstay in clubs as of late. How did the record come together? “I just been in the studio working,” said Soulja. “That was really like a intro record. Drake hit me and he was like, ‘Yo this is crazy.’ And we just put it out. The streets just been loving it. It’s crazy.”
Soulja Boy and Justin Bieber were in the media last week after being arrested in separate incidents. The rapper partially blames the incidents on the ills of fame. “It’s just being young and being successful,” he said about the situation. “I feel like, if I was a regular person, it wouldn’t get promoted in the media. Me and Bieber we were just chilling. We just young and having fun. They pulled over the Bentley, they pulled over the Ferrari. Why are they pulling us over in the first place? We just gone deal with it. All my fans that’s been rocking with me through everything I salute to y’all and appreciate the support.”
