RapRadar has a really good quick interview with Mr. Soulja Boy Tell ‘Em. The homie Toshi sits down with the “Turn My Swag On” kingpin as he goes in on his career and the status of his beef with Shad Moss.
Check out these excerpts below:
On his album only selling 45,000 units:
[When I saw] those first week numbers, I ain’t think it was over. I thought I had messed up. But I was scared. [Before] I was thinking, I’m Soulja Boy. If I push something, it’s gonna sell. I got cocky and overconfident and after I put the album out, I realized that it’s not about you, it’s about the music. Plus I had the wrong situation so I had to switch up my team. I still think my album is great. I just feel like I went with the wrong first single and had the wrong team in place.
On “Birdwalk” being the wrong single:
When it wasn’t selling. I check all the charts myself. It wasn’t coming up on the iTunes chart or the Billboard chart. I just sat back and started just looking at it for what it was like, This is really not it! What the fuck goin’ on? But it was too late. The album was already out and it was the only song I had out.
On the Bow Wow beef:
We ain’t really spoke, but when I did BET’s Spring Bling this past weekend, [Bow Wow] was there. I just walked up to him and shook his hand, had a couple words with him and kept it moving.
