Soulja Boy Developing Videogame For Xbox 360
With his sophomore album, iSouljaBoyTellEm, dropping today, teen sensation Soulja Boy already has his next project in the works, a videogame for the Xbox 360.
SB told Billboard that similar to his rap career, the deal came into play after he posted up a video online. "I put up a video on YouTube challenging Xbox Live players around the world,” he explained. “Next thing you know I got an e-mail from a videogame company -- in the same way Collipark e-mailed me about signing me -- offering me an opportunity to set up a videogame.”
This is not the only project the burgeoning business man has up his sleeve. SB also has a partnership with apparel company Yums for his Soulja Boy Block Star sneaker and clothing line, an animated live action cartoon - which he is trying to shop to TV - and his own independent label, SOD entertainment.
iSouljaBoyTellEm, which features appearances by T.I., Shawty Lo, Sean Kingston, Yo Gotti and Gucci Mane, hits stores today, along with Da Realist, the third solo album from Florida rapper Plies. As XXLmag.com previously reported, SB’s album leaked onto the net last week. His new videogame is set to drop sometime next year. – Jesse Gissen
