Soulja Boy Tell Em recently talked about hitting the road alongside Lil Wayne and Young Jeezy for the America's Most Wanted tour and explained how a birthday gift from 50 Cent came right on time.
In addition to speaking on the tour, Soulja Boy also revealed a recent music-based birthday present he received from 50 Cent last month.
"50 gave me a bus to record my album since I was on tour," Soulja Boy said in an interview. "When they came at me and was like, 'Wayne wants you to be on tour with Drake, Jeezy, a lot of people,' of course I'mma do it...My first tour I did was with Chris Brown. Now this is gonna be my second official tour...On this type of tour, you got Young Jeezy fans in the crowd, Lil Wayne fans in the crowd, Jeremih fans in the crowd, Pleasure P fans in the crowd, and this is not the only time you gotta do it. You gotta do it four or five days straight. This is what I'm built for...I try to strive for my best. I respect everybody in the tour, likewise, but I'm trying to have the best show in the tour. I'm gonna stay and watch everybody, though." (MTV)
Aside from 50's bus, Soulja Boy also addressed the media's criticism of his Lamborghini chain he also received for his birthday.
"1ST OF ALL I didn't pay ANYTHING for my black Lamborghini chain I got it FREE as a birthday present from my jeweler when I turned 19 on July 28!," he wrote in a statement. "Even if I did pay for it who are you to judge me on what I purchase with MY money? Why do the media blow up the things that they think will make me look stupid or ignorant. Why not publicize or put me in the spotlight when I do positive things?...Why not step in when Ice-T was dissing me why not call up and have a sit down to squash that beef. THINK ABOUT IT A 40 YEAR OLD SOMETHING GANGSTA N*GGA VS. A 16 YEAR OLD KID (AT THE TIME). What if he really did have O.G. crip n*ggaz that had a price on my head to murder me? WHY DIDN'T YOU TRY TO STEP IN AND STOP THAT? HUH?. you worried about a black diamond chain that I received as birthday present??? WTF?" (Miss Info)
In addition to the tour, Soulja Boy is also recording multiple collaboration records.
"N*ggas just been hitting me left and right like 'Soulja I need you on a track,'" he said in an interview. "I just did a song with Lil Kim, the remix for 'Download.' Me, her, T-Pain and The-Dream. Me and Snoop Dogg doing a joint we got together...Me and R. Kelly got a song...I got a song I'm working on, me and Drake was supposed to go out in the studio man. But he fell, he fell on-stage last night, so, hopefully we still gonna get it in. You know what I'm saying? He cool, but I don't know man. He took a pretty bad fall." (This Is 50)
The America's Most Wanted tour will reportedly end later this month.
The Young Money Presents: America's Most Wanted Music Festival will be the follow up to Lil Wayne's very successful "I Am Music Tour" playing a total of 47 arena dates across the US. After an opening act, Drake will perform, followed by Soulja Boy and Young Jeezy's sets with Lil Wayne closing out the show. The tour kicked-off on July 27, 2009 at the Toyota Pavillion in Scranton, Pennsylvania and end on August 23, 2009 at the Superpages.com Center in Dallas, Texas. (The Urban Daily)
