In what may seem like an unlikely pair, Kanye West and Soulja Boy are currently working on producing tracks for each other’s upcoming albums.
When he’s not touring on the “America’s Most Wanted Music Festival,” Soulja Boy has been working on creating tracks for Kanye‘s fifth album.
“I’m working on Kanye’s next album right now. We working together on production because he makes beats and I make beats,” said the 19-year-old rapper to Rap-Up.com. “Right now I’m remixing a couple of records for him.”
Soulja Boy isn’t coming away from the arrangement empty-handed, as Kanye is going to produce for him in return, contributing to Soulja Boy‘s upcoming The DeAndre Way. “I’m actually working on [Kanye‘s] album while he’s working on my album.”
Last year, Kanye defended Soulja Boy when Ice-T criticized him infamously. “Soulja Boy is fresh as hell and is actually the true meaning of what hip-hop is supposed to be,” he blogged at the time. “He came from the ’hood, made his own beats, made up a new saying, new sound, and a new dance with one song. If that ain’t hip-hop, then what is?”
