We're going to do some big venues. I plan on hitting all of the major cities. I'm gonna be three albums deep in the game so I'm gonna have a lot of music to party with. I'm going to bring some great artist out on the road with me. I don't have a name for the tour yet but as soon as I do I'll let the people know." (Hip Hop DX)

Soulja Boy previously surprised fans with an unexpected 50 Cent performance during his Young Money touring slot last summer.
"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)
He also spoke on the various collaborations he had last year.
"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)
