Soulja Boy took to social media over the weekend to announce he’ll be diving more heavily into acting, and confirm he’ll soon have a new television show air on Revolt. While the news is exciting, rumors started to swirl after Big Draco claimed all he’d be doing in 2022 was TV and movies. On Tuesday (January 4), he promised his new ventures don’t mean he’s done making music.
I have not quit rapping. My new album drop next month. I said I quit beefing. Blogs stop posting that. I WILL NEVER RETIRE FROM MUSIC. PERIOD.

Soulja Boy aims to join a long lineage of rappers turned actors such as Ludacris, Ice Cube, Bow Wow, Will Smith, LL COOL J, Ice-T, 50 Cent, Queen Latifah, 2Pac and more. He previously mentioned he had a TV show in the works in October.
“Big shout-out to P Diddy, big shout-out to Revolt,” he said. “I got a new TV show coming out on Revolt TV. Shout-out to Puff Daddy, y’all know what the fuck going on. My new TV show is coming soon and it’s going viral, no cap.”
