Soulja Lines Up New Album & More

Published: Tuesday 29th Apr 2008 by Sam
Soulja Lines Up New Album & More Despite being ridiculed as a ‘one hit wonder’, teen star Soulja Boy is currently readying his sophomore LP as well as several other ventures. Check out the report via MTV.com:

“My new album is called Back to School,” he revealed last week in Atlanta. “Basically, it is really me taking it back to the basics. It’s time to start studying again. Make it happen, man. … The time I drop the album, everybody is gonna be going back to school. My fans are 21 and under. That’s what I’m focusing on.”

Soulja may have rapped about getting F’s in school, but since he’s become a celeb, the young’un has obviously garnered knowledge in economics. He has a full blitz tied into the album. Besides the record, he’s dropping the Soulja Boy sunglasses, his own signature shoes called Yums, as well as a cartoon titled “Bad Little Homies” about him and his friends. Not to be left out is the ever-essential clothing, S.O.D.s. It’s named after his record label, Stacks on Deck. On deck are his protégés the All-Stars. Topping it all off will be the Soulja Boy and Friends Tour, featuring himself and other young acts.

Soulja said that since he’s making all that money now, he’ll be willing to open his album up for collaborations this time. He produced 90 percent of his debut and had no big-name features.

“I’m on Interscope [Records]. I could have went to 50 [Cent], Polow [Da Don], Timbaland,” he said about his first effort. “I feel as though I had to prove myself. [This time,] I’mma look around [for tracks], whether it’s a producer like Polow or a producer nobody ever heard of. For my fanbase, people who tune in to Soulja Boy, I think a good feature would be me and Chris Brown. Soulja Boy featuring Chris Brown — my audience would be like, ‘Oh my God!’ ”

Didn’t his first album (which was garbage IMO) just come out?! I guess he knows his ’15’ could be up at anytime (they arguably they are already), so he’s keeping it moving. I can’t knock his hustle. Saying that, I find it a little hard to believe any of the artists he name-dropped would ever think of doing a collabo with him. Imagine 50 and Soulja Boy on the same track LMAO.


Any thoughts?

    The guy’s a joke…

    At best, this talentless moron’s only career prospect is doing small time club performanced of “crank that”.

    Give it a few years tho, he wont even be able to do that and will have no choice but to flip burgers for a living.

    He’s cockiness really winds me up as he has absolutely nothing to back it up. Crank that was a fluke and to think himself as anything more than a one-hit wonder is laughable!

    I couldn’t agree more. Souljaboy is exactly what is wrong with the “hip-hop” scene. It depresses me that anyone could ever believe he’s anything more than a one-hit wonder. The fact that he is prepping a second album is a terrible idea, and whatever label is backing him is retarded. Ugh, he’s terrible.

    Yal can say what ya want about him but like Nelly said” This man gets 85% of what he makes!” So I know he making big bucks and it ain’t no reason to hate on a person who is trying to betta his situation.

    To the last poster…

    When you grow some pubes, people might take ur opinion seriously.

    He’s made money off a one hit song (which was s*** anyway), fair play to the guy.

    What pisses peopl eoff about this nerd tho is that he compares himself to Heavy hitters like Jay-Z or Kanye. I just find that he’s ego is unjustifyable and the quicker he dissapears the better.

    Anyone could have pulled that off Crank That song off, he was just in the right place at the right time.

    If he lost the arrogance & had some SERIOUS musical lessons, maybe i’d be willing to give the little turd a chance.

    1. I don’t find Soulja Boy’s and Rihanna’s talent comparable, but I can say that Soulja Boy definitely is not at the top of the rap game, where Rihanna is at the top of the R&B.

    2. Obviously, I don’t really care for Soulja Boy. I didn’t know that he has been comparing himself to Jay-Z and Kanye. I must say that Soulja Boy is crazy to put himself in the same league as them. They are light years ahead of Soulja Boy

    “My new album is called Back to School,” he revealed last week in Atlanta. “Basically, it is really me taking it back to the basics. It’s time to start studying again. Make it happen, man. … The time I drop the album, everybody is gonna be going back to school. My fans are 21 and under. That’s what I’m focusing on.”

    Clearly “Back To School” is exactly where this dumbass needs to be since he has no concept of the English language. Read it again, people…if that’s an exact quote, it makes ZERO sense and explains nothing. WTF? I don’t even know where to begin. All I know is he’s a joke and if radio wasn’t so retarded and biased Soulja Boy wouldn’t BE a celebrity.

    I feel bad for him, honestly, because he’s a one-hit-wonder and doesn’t even want to admit it. When he’s working at Burger King and all those F’s in high school won’t get him anywhere, reality will hit. Then again, knowing this fool, maybe it won’t.

    Actually, 50 Cent has said before on some show like 106th & Park about how much he’d like to work with Soulja Boy because of how muhc of an entrepreneur he is.
