SB claims he’s in the studio with the Young Money star.
Soulja Boy has been on a recent spree of notable name-dropping, and apparently he's not done yet. The Stacks on Deck Money Gang leader is now claiming that he’s going in to the studio with Drake.
“Me and Drake got something coming—crazy,” Soulja told Rap-Up.com. “Drake called me, was like, ‘Man, I like the Juice mixtape. I like the ‘Zan with that Lean’ too. He named four songs off the mixtape that he really liked.... He said he’s coming to Atlanta and gon’ kick it with me. We gonna go in the studio for a whole week. He’s working on his new album too, so you already know what time it is.”
Although Drizzy is a noted fan of Soulja, going as far as to bring him onstage at a concert last year in L.A. to perform “Pretty Boy Swag,” the idea of a collaboration between the two may be hard to believe given Soulja's recent run of stretching the truth a bit.
At the top of the year, Soulja fibbed a bit when he claimed that he wrote Willow Smith’s hit debut single “Whip My Hair.”
“YES ITS TRUE I WROTE ‘WHIP MY HAIR’ FOR WILLOW SMITH,” he wrote on Twitter. “THAT’S WHY SHE SAYS HOP OUT THE BED TURN MY SWAG ON. WE GETTING $$$ 2011 NO GAMES.”
Turns out the young rapper got songwriting credit because of the use of the line “hopped up out the bed, turn my swag on” taken from his single “Turn My Swag On.” However, the Smith song was written entirely by songwriter/producer Jukebox, who was angered by SB seemingly trying to take credit.
Last month, Cash Money CEO Bryan “Baby” Williams went on Twitter to deny SB's claim that the rap mogul tried to sign him to Young Money. This news came just days after Cam’ron told VIBE he had no intentions to participate in Souja Boy’s remake of the classic 2Pac film Juice. Cam denied Soulja's claim that they spoke about a role for the Harlem rapper.
At the moment there’s no word from Drake’s camp as to whether this is a confirmed collaboration or just another figment of SB’s vivid imagination.
