Soulja Boy Talks Summer Jam, “I Guess New York Finally Showin’ Me Some Love” [With Exclusive Video]

Rumors were rampant of a Diplomats reunion at Summer Jam last night (June 7), but the surprise Jim and  Juelz sprang was bringing out Soulja Boy, who spoke to backstage about his appearance.

“I ran into [Jim] at Busta Rhymes’ album release party in New York like two, three weeks ago,” revealed Soulja Boy of the on-stage collabo’s genesis. “He holla’d at me—said he wanted me to come through and do it. I said, ‘No problem.’”

During his closing set, Jim told the crowd, “When I wake up in the morning, I do two things.” “First, I brush my teeth. Then, I turn my swag on.” The ATL rapper then pushed through the sea of Dipset heads that filled the stage to capacity, launching into his hit record. [Watch below]

“55,000 people all jammin’ to swag on in the middle of New Jersey—it’s crazy,” added Soulja Boy of the crowd’s reaction. “I guess New York finally showin’ me some love. It is what it is, though. The South been hookin’ up with New York recently. You got Gucci hookin’ up with Busta. You got Wayne doing songs with everybody from the East Coast. So it’s just everybody showing love. That’s how it’s supposed to be.” – Devin Chanda
