Atlanta rapper Soulja Boy Tell Em has bigger things on his mind than putting out good music after dishing out his ambitions to be one of the best rappers in the entertainment industry.
According to SB, he sees himself going to the top of the rap food chain and leaving behind a legacy.
"I want to be the best rapper. Really. Deep down. As much as n*ggas hate on me and talk sh*t, I still come out with the hits. I still make the hardest beats. I drop a video all the time. I always have people talking about me. I always rock. My secret is, I really want this sh*t. You know what I am saying? A lot of rappers , they be in this position, they don't really want this sh*t."

The ATL native also dished on what music collaborations and aspirations he still has.
"I want another platinum album. I want another diamond album. I want a Grammy. I want a collab with Jay Z. I want a collab with Rihanna. ... I'm 23, I ain't gonna be rapping when I am 40. I'ma stop at, like, 30-something. Retire at 29 or some sh*t. I feel like once I'm 30--"OK, I'm going to own a corporation or some sh*t." (XXL Mag)
Soulja Boy heated up the 'net this week with the release of a new mixtape.
King Soulja 2 is a new 23-track mixtape from the inimitable Soulja Boy, a sequel to his May 2013 project of the same name, which you can cop here. The tape features guest appearances from Agoff, Shawty Boy, Migos and Lil B The Based God himself, and includes the standout cuts "Work," "Macklemore" and Drake's "We Made It" remix. (HNHH)
Last year, SB stirred up rumors about a possible signing to Cash Money Records.
It hasn't been even 2 weeks since the release of Soulja Boy's King Soulja mixtape but the rapper returns today with another free EP of 5 songs. Jointly hosted by Rich Gang? Maybe he's signing to Cash Money soon. (HHNM)
