Soulja Boy recently talked to AllHipHop.com about his upcoming third album The DeAndre Way, due in stores tomorrow. The Atlanta sensation revealed that he will be starring in an film based on his life story bearing the same title of his third album. He says that regardless of what critics may say of his abilities or music, his is a story of success.
“These people have been pitching me this movie idea for so long, and now I am letting them orchestrate my art and tell my story and let people see it on the big screen,” he explained. “A lot of people say ‘Soulja Boy is a one hit wonder, and he’s lucky.’ It’s not even about music. It’s about a success story, but it’s a true story from the bottom to the top, a true success story.” (AllHipHop.com)
Soulja Boy also spoke on his LP, which boasts the single “Pretty Boy Swag” and features the likes of Trey Songz, Lil B., Esther Dean and 50 Cent. He explained that he approached this album differently than his two previous efforts, saying that he focused more on the personal aspects of his artistry.
“If you look at this third album, it’s like I am becoming more personal and more real and telling people about my life as a human being, not as a super star,” he said. “I think all my fans, no, I know all my fans are going to feel that.” (AllHipHop.com)
