Aside from media hype, Soulja Boy is currently working with a variety of artists including Kanye West, Rihanna and Jamie Foxx.
"[Yeezy] showing me a lot of stuff I didn't know [and] me showing him a lot of stuff he didn't know," Soulja Boy described about their in-studio relationship. "He had an ear for my sound. Of course I had an ear for all the stuff he did. Genius! ... It was three different samples that we was working on. On one of them, he was like, 'I want this to go here, I want you to do this.' I like when an artist pushes me how he was pushing me. He doesn't go easy on me...I was in the studio with [Foxx] a couple of days ago working on a new beat for him. All the artists that reached out to me for beats -- like Rihanna -- my portfolio is only getting longer and longer. With this particular [RiRi] project [it was] like, 'Whoa!' because [her rep was] like, 'Yo, I need you to do something for Rihanna's album. You got 11 hours. Go!' It was like, 'What? I'm all out of pocket.' How do you make something that's gonna be a number one hit so fast? But it's been done before because I made 'Crank That' in 30 minutes." (MTV)
The rapper revealed new records with Drake earlier this fall.
"Of course the work relationship is gonna be mutual," Soulja Boy said about Ye. "My work ethic is crazy and of course his work ethic is crazy. Kanye ain't even in the country right now and he still trying to work. Like I got some sh*t coming with him, me and Drake that's gonna be stuuupid. Some sh*t with me and Drake leaked earlier this week but we just planning on taking the music sh*t to the next level." (XXL Mag)
