Soulja Boy Plans to Work With Lupe Fiasco

Soulja Boy may not want to be “super-Lupe-Fiasco-lyrical,” but in our recent interview with the young’n he said wants to get in the studio with the Chi-town wordsmith.

“Yeah, man, we was talkin’ about that,” SB told of a possible collaboration. “He was like, ‘Let’s do a song.’ I’m on this crazy, hectic schedule right now, and I really don’t like working through e-mail, I’d rather be in the studio and feel that energy. So, when I get time to get in the studio, we’ll make that happen.”

The initial quote surfaced in the cover story of the November issue of XXL, featuring Soulja Boy and 50 Cent. “I was telling them like, man, on songs like ‘Crank Dat’ and ‘Pretty Boy Swag,’ I don’t wanna be all lyrical,” he continued. “It’s a club song; I want to just keep it simple so people know what I’m sayin’. I was just using Lupe as a reference because he was a good lyricist. But I wasn’t talking about all my music, I was talking about one song that I wasn’t lyrical on.”

Soulja says Lupe, who soon after the quote surfaced released a track called “Super Lupe Rap,” reached out to the young star to discuss the reference. “He hit me up,” Soulja said. “We chopped it up on the Twitter, on [Direct Message]. We chopped it up over the phone. It was nothin’. He already know how the media get; controversy sells. It’s nothin’ but love.”

Soulja Boy’s third solo album, The DeAndre Way, hit stores and iTunes yesterday. —Adam Fleischer
