Soulja Boy Tell Em has updated fans on the status of his upcoming The DeAndre Way album and confirmed reports of being in the studio with Kanye West.
Writing via Twitter, Soulja Boy said Yeezy has helped him develop his skills.

According to Soulja Boy, both emcees will also exchange beats for their new solo projects.
"I'm working on Kanye's next album right now," Soulja Boy revealed in an interview over the summer. "We working together on production because he makes beats and I make beats. Right now I'm remixing a couple of records for him. I'm actually working on [Kanye's] album while he's working on my album." (Rap-Up)
Soulja Boy previously said he would likely produce a record alongside Ye.
"I know a million producers that are no-names, but they got hot beats," he said in an interview. "I will be going back in the lab to produce beats on this album, I really haven't produced since my second album, but I'm looking forward to doing a 50/50 split beat with Kanye West. I think that'll be hot because he's a great lyricist, but an awesome producer as well. I feel like I'm an awesome producer too, and both of us in the studio together at the same time can come out with a smash." (Radio Planet TV)
He also promised his upcoming third LP would be considered a "classic" and reach platinum status.
"Right now I'm in the studio making The DeAndre Way," Soulja Boy explained in an interview earlier this year. "And mark my words, this album will be a classic. A lot of people been sleeping on Soulja Boy for a long time, when I first came out with 'Crank Dat' it was so big, gimmicky and catchy it went five times platinum and a lot of people were stuck on it for a long time. They said I was garbage, they said I was a one-hit wonder. Now I came out with 'Kiss Me Through The Phone,' my second No. 1 single and I released 'Turn My Swag On,' my third No. 1 single and now I'm going into my third album. I got everybody's ears open right now...Mark my words, this album will go platinum...I'm reaching out to hip-hop's greatest...I wanna reach out to that top status. Your Jay-Z's, your Kanye's and your Lil Wayne's." (MTV)
