With the new production skills that Soulja Boy possesses, and the creativeness that Kanye West attains, the pair will make good music together.
“I’m working on Kanye’s next album right now,” Soulja Boy states in an interview.
“We’re working together on production because he makes beats and I make beats. Right now I’m remixing a couple of records for him, I’m actually working on Kanye’s album while he’s working on my album.”
The Crank That rapper continues by saying, “I know a million producers that are no-names, but they got hot beats. I will be going back in the lab to produce beats on this album, I really haven’t produced since my second album, but I’m looking forward to doing a 50/50 split beat with Kanye West. I think that’ll be hot because he’s a great lyricist, but an awesome producer as well. I feel like I’m an awesome producer too, and both of us in the studio together at the same time can come out with a smash.”
Kanye has been working on Soulja Boy’s forthcoming LP, The DeAndre Way, while Soulja Boy has created three tracks for West’s album.
“Right now I’m in the studio making The DeAndre Way,” Soulja Boy explained in an interview earlier this year.
“And mark my words, this album will be a classic. A lot of people been sleeping on Soulja Boy for a long time, when I first came out with Crank That it was so big, gimmicky and catchy it went five times platinum and a lot of people were stuck on it for a long time. They said I was garbage, they said I was a one-hit wonder. Now I came out with Kiss Me Through The Phone, my second #1 single and I released Turn My Swag On, my third #1 single and now I’m going into my third album. I got everybody’s ears open right now…Mark my words, this album will go platinum…I’m reaching out to hip-hop’s greatest…I wanna reach out to that top status. Your Jay-Zs, your Kanyes and your Lil Waynes.”
Soulja Boy said he also hopes to get appearances from Eminem and Hov to murder him on his own album. The DeAndre Way is expected to hit stores in July.
