Atlanta rapper Soulja Boy Tell Em's recent hangouts with Lil Wayne may be part of a bigger story as reports suggest the 22 year-old could be headed to Cash Money Records.
Although nothing has been finalized, buzz has heated up the Internet with photos of SB and Cash Money CEO Birdman circulating.

The rapper previously said Interscope Records was holding up the potential deal.
"I met with Baby and Slim down in Miami," Soulja said in an interview. "He's trying to get me to come over to Cash Money...I still got paperwork with Interscope Records, so I'm just trying to figure out what I'ma do. I got a lot of great options on the table -- I've been a fan of Cash Money since I was young. I've been listening to Birdman's music since I was growing up. I would have never thought." (Rap-Up)
Over the weekend, Soulja and Young Money's Lil Wayne clocked in some time together.
