Soulja Boy Blames Interscope For Disappointing Album Sales, Says 50 Cent Pushed Him To Keep Rapping

Soulja Boy tells Complex that bad communication with Interscope led to bad record sales and that 50 Cent encouraged him to continue his rap career.

Soulja Boy spoke with Complex recently about the lackluster reception of his third studio album The Deandre Way and how internal disagreements with Interscope influenced the album's disappointing record sales. The young rapper asserts that the timing of the album was not good. While he wanted to release the effort in July 2010, it dropped in November, over five months after its first and most successful lead single "Pretty Boy Swag" hit the radio.

"Honestly, I shut down for a week [after my album dropped]," He told Complex. "I wasn’t talking to nobody, I wasn’t talking to management, and I wasn’t talking to the label. I wasn’t picking up nobody’s calls. I went like that for a week. I was in a state of confusion. I needed answers…the label only shipped like 18,000 copies [of the album]. So I wasn’t able to do gold first week or even 100k, none of that. They only put like 8,000 units in Best Buy. It was crazy."

He said he felt helpless because communication with Interscope was lacking, and he believed the label failed to listen to him. He claims that his souring relationship with producer and mentor Mr. Collipark (who did no production work on the album) gave him less power to negotiate with record execs.

"When I first started it was Soulja Boy and Collipark. But after my label Stacks On Deck Money Gang Records was established and I started making all these different moves, I started to become a businessman. My label was taking off and I guess I was putting more time and energy into that, then to Collipark. He wasn’t feeling that and it just went left. He wanted me to be all for Collipark. So during the third album, I didn’t have him there to be able to tell the label to ship 500,000 the first week, or put the single on the radio, or we need this song. So I was basically out there by myself, just hoping the label will do the best they can."

Although the two have since made amends, Soulja Boy says that if it weren't for 50 Cent, who is featured on The Deandre Way, he would have quit rapping.

"[50] was like, 'You’ve got to keep doing what you’re doing. You’re Soulja Boy, you’re here for a reason. Everybody’s not going platinum. Everybody didn’t do what you did. Everybody didn’t come in on the Internet. You’re the one that started the Internet. You’re the one that got me on the Internet. You’re the one that got us on blogs, on YouTube, and on Twitter.’ I was like, ‘Man, you know what? You’re right.’ He wasn’t doing nothing but speaking true knowledge to my head and it got me right back in the studio. So I ain’t going to never quit. I’m going to stay in this music industry. I’m going to stay making hits, and I’m going to do what I’ve got to do, and I thank 50. I really needed that at that time."

    you can tell this guy aint a real artist simply by the way he judges his success. Sales. All he talk about his sales. He doesnt talk about the concent of the album or how he thinks its his best release to date. He is only disappointed by the sales. If you listen to an interview by Kanye or Drake they never mention sales unless asked by the interviewer, all they concentrate on is perfecting thier craft and sales will come from those who love good music.

  • IAmControverse

    "Soulja" Boy needs a name change pronto. I think we all know why.

  • Jim Jones

    Pretty boy swag was a pretty hot record. And this nigga did come out wit hits. His label did fuck him over. Think bout it, if they send out more records, they'd have to put that album everywhere, once people saw it they'd buy it. I know I didn't even know the nigga had an album out. fuckin labels always try to fuck over artists especially rappers.

    • Gucci Butt Lover

      YEAH! Soulja Boy is the bestest rap guy in the world, right up there with Lil B & Gucci Mane, they rap about real life stuff like dancing, looking like Jesus & face tatoos, that shit is hard. I can't wait for Soulja to change his m=name to Soulja Man & reveal to the world that he & Lil B are gay butt loving faggots together. Gucci Mane 4-EVA!

  • boogie abernathy

    Lol hey soulja boy! a shitty carpenter blames his tools!!! think bout that METHAPOR since you left that element out your music!!!!

  • P

    Sure.Blame the label, not your shit and wack music.

  • dumbsmart

    So the label shipped 18000 and you only sold 13000. Sounds like the label over shipped 5000 albums. I guess they knew it would be trash too.

    Hey Soulja Boy,Rebecca Black is an internet sensation too,but u dont see that many people buying that single off of ituunes do u?

  • unclesam

    Damm 50 I dislike you even more now.

  • Truth`

    LOL So let me get this straight. Souljah Boy's album sales suck, and he's blaming the timing of its release date? He thinks a couple months difference would have made him go from wood to platinum? Someone's in denial. Obviously his fanbase of knuckledragging retards outgrew him, and he didn't have a hit song to hook the fickle tween pop-rap crowd. Which is his entire fanbase. Oh, yeah, "Pretty Boy Swag." That was sure lighting up the charts. What the f-ck is "Pretty Boy Swag"? For real. That lit up the charts? Really? "Empire of State of Mind." That lit up the charts. Not "Pretty Boy Swag." God, that's a shitty title. It sounds like the worst song ever. Ugh. Then Souljah Boy says 50 Cent gave him good "advice," when 50 Cent just gave him sycophantic compliments? Vomit, vomit, vomit. What a bunch of dicksucking insincere bullshit. Is Souljah Boy capable of any kind of self-reflection or criticism? I'm going to guess "no." Because he sounds like a spoiled, dumbass kid that's in for a rude awakening, as the years pass by, and he gets older and less popular. And you know what? It can't come fast enough. Fuck this spoiled lobotomized loser. He literally has nothing to draw back on, other than making embarassing "songs" like Superman The Hoe, and Blaarrrrfgghghh and Swaggy Swaggy Christmas or whatever the fuck his shit is called.

  • TheTruth

    What a hoe he is, getting major pimped by his record label then 50 cent doing Jimmy's biddig for him by acting like the label siperho to get thje newy young ho to work harder. Man fuck em all, this shit aint never goin back to the 90's - you are lucky as fuck to live through that era. These niggas are all slaves now and sold souls.

    i bet Soulja boi and 50 cent were giving each other oral sex at the time this was said. and what 50 really said was "Soulja fuck rap you gotta start suckin dick for a living. ill put it on the internet, nigga youll have all the bloggers talkin. noww YOUUUU put that dick in your mouth and do the wonder woman"

  • the penguin

    HAHAHAHAHAHHA 50 WAS COMPLEMENTING HIM AND HE SAID "YEAH MAN THATS TRUE KNOWLEDGE" WHAT A FUCKING MORON, souljah boy is a diminsher not an embracer, fucking head so big

  • big bizness

    a label will only ship what they expect to sell, and technically if you the bizness..the sores actually buy the records wholesale then resale hem, so sores only bout 18,000 copies so its not the labels fault. it wasnt a big demand for his album and sores arent gonna spend money on a product that isnt going to sell

  • Don

    Soulja Boy should have known that bullshit he was putting out won't going to last long. You can't listen to the bullshit too many times. Why he complaining anyway You rich, take your cash and leave lil homie. Hopefully the industry stop shipping these garbage albums all together. Now could some one do the same for Wacka and Gucci albums. Hate if you want but they shit in the same garbage pile as his.

  • U are like what i smoke, a fag

    Soulja Boy obviously hit tooooo many blunts, real convo was: 50: "Soulja Boy, you're done. I think we needa just keep u as a producer or maybe a fuckin janitor or some shit. U wack as shit and only sell cuz niggas hear swag and see a dance vid" Soulja Boy: "Nigga I'm SOULJA BOY. IMMA FUCKIN BATMAN YO ASS IF U DONT LEMME FUCKIN SELL THIS SWAGGIN ALBUM .BASED GOD GUNNA FUCK YO BITCH. Imma have waka come here and fuckin---" *50 falcon punches him in the throat*

  • eastsideplaya69

    hahahahahahahahahahaha Soulja Boy is a shitty rapper/artist and thats why he didn't sell records not because Interscope didnt promote his album. This kid is dumb as hell. fuck SB. If 50 can release an album that sounds like the tracks he's released since the new year then he might sell again.

  • 666SWAG

    JUST ANOTHER REASON WHY 50 CENT NEEDS TO DIE.

  • C'mon son

    ..who gives a fuck

  • Mike

    I feel as if soulja boy was gonna flop anyways because he is a singles artist. Just because you can drop a catchy hit does not mean automatically your going to sell. If that was the case then Flo Rida would be a superstar with a platinum plaque for every album. On top of that SB has worse odds because he is just not respected and as a result needs to step his game up. Last thing I don't know why ppl have an issue with 50 cent encouraging SB. I mean seriously as much as i do not like a rapper that doesnt mean i dont wish them the most success in the world because im not a hater

  • Hmm

    If SB album was undershipped he would have have had huge demand and the label would have restocked in order to make more money. Obviously there wasn't a huge demand for SB thus he only sold 8000/18000 shipped. It seemed as though the label shipped the right amount of albums. SB only has singles, but nobody wants to spend 15$ for his music that goes stale after 1 listen.

      agreed with chris people are attracted to shitty ass cornball rap not many new rappers that have come out in the past couple of years have any lyrical content, and yes that includes waka and gucci.

      Seems to be the opposite nowadays...

    of course 50 would tell your dumb ass to keep rapping soulja boy, there's a market out there created by kids who listen to your pointless raps, and 50 would make a shitload of more money off of it. keep making him rich.

  • Anonymous

    Any time an artist blames a label for the amount they ship, they are LYING to themselves. The label shipped 18,000. He sold 13,000. YOU do the math. You didn't even sell what they shipped. What about DIGITAL sales? The label can't UNDER-ship that? And what about weekly sales after that! If you had, say, 500,000 people who wanted your album, they would eventually get it ONLINE, or in the subsequent weeks after the release. Frist week sales is only FIRST week. You have forever to sell an album. Stop lying to yourself. If you didnt know to tell the label what to do, you may need to learn how to run a label before you try and BE a label.

    i ain't like Soulja Boy, but he makes them hits that the girls like. it's not about the lyrical content, but the production. he got that pop production that sounds okay in small doses. grown men slave away in the studio trying to make up ideas, let's see u pull that shit off. granted, some shit does sound like garbage tho. just sayin.

  • yugang

    Illdoc said it best, if u are the kind of rapper who dont care about the quality of yours lyrics and only cares about making money then you should be aware that being a rapper with no lyrics (or talent for that matter) is not only artistly dubious, its also a bad long term investment. Its like the subprime mortgage of hip hop. It sounds like a good deal now (at the time when u start out) but in 5 yrs u probably will go broke and end up living in your parents basement. If only soulja boy thought about that smh.

    Maybe the labels were right.. he's just a one hit wonder.. so they shipped a few copies because that's all he would make. To save money

    If this is true, then his sales might not have completely been his thought, I didn't even rly know the album was out when it dropped anyway, so the label did eff it up. He's still lame though...
