Teen phenomenon Soulja Boy is scheduled to release his sophomore album, iSouljaboytellem, on December 16.
SB’s sophomore set follows his successful debut, Souljaboytellem.com, which featured his breakout track, “Crank That (Soulja Boy).”
“I’m more than ready to release the follow-up to ‘souljaboytellem.com,’ I know my fans are ready too.” SB said in a statement. “I have so much more in store this time around with a shoe and clothing deal, an animated series and some special surprises I can’t talk about yet. I’m going to continue to keep up the momentum through 2009, so plan on seeing me all over the Internet on your favorite websites and blogs with my new videos and updates on where I’m at and what I am doing. You are not going to be able to get away from Soulja Boy Tell’em … YUUUAAAAA!”
iSouljaboytellem features collaborations with mentor Mr. Collipark, as well as producer Polow Da Don and Sean Kingston. Polow and Kingston both contribute to “Yamaha Mama.” “Turn My Swag On” will feature a viral music video, much like the clips that helped the teen artist rise to prominence.
The first single “Birdwalk” will debut later this week on BET’s 106 & Park, according to the rapper’s label.—Anthony Thomas
