In an interview with Billboard, rapper Soulja Boy revealed an upcoming collaboration with Drake and other popular rappers. He also claimed that hip-hop artists are copying his style and making it harder for him to get recognition. 

"Drizzy [Drake]. Me and Drizzy. We definitely going to drop something. Definitely Busta Rhymes, Lil B," Soulja Boy said. "I mean there's artists out there, but its like, s--t got dry in the last few years. N----s be trying to sound like me and s--t. I listen to a hit, its like 'Okay it's a hit, but it sounds like me.'"

"Every time I do something they copy it," he said about the competition. "I mean its cool, it makes me bigger and shit. But it's just like… Once you do so much copying, I can't do me then."

His last album, The DeAndre Way, failed to impress with a debut on Billboard's Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums chart at No. 18 and only dropping from there. His next album will drop in early 2012.

"I just want to find a way to make [music] better and be innovative. I'm confident. I'm very confident," Soulja Boy said. "If I got to be the Steve Jobs of [the] f----n' music industry then so be it."
