Soulja Boy Making Beats for Kanye West

Soulja Boy and Kanye West

A year ago, he couldn’t even get a call back. Now Soulja Boy Tell’em is producing for Kanye West.

Between dates on the “America’s Most Wanted Music Festival,” the 19-year-old rapper has been hitting the studio, crafting tracks for Mr. West’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,” Soulja Boy tells Rap-Up.com. “Right now I’m remixing a couple of records for him.”

In return, ’Ye is also contributing some of his Grammy-winning material for Soulja Boy’s third LP The DeAndre Way. “I’m actually working on [Kanye's] album while he’s working on my album.”

West defended the “Crank That” MC when he came under attack from Ice-T last year. “Soulja Boy is fresh as hell and is actually the true meaning of what hip-hop is supposed to be,” he wrote in a blog entry. “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?”

    Soulja Boys last 2 albums have been pure garbage but i believe his third album will actually be good if he can get good production. If kanye is producing for him i think more people will be interested. Turn my swag on was the only song i liked off his previous album and i think he got a lot of bad feedback for isouljaboytellum so he gotta prove his point that he can make a solid album!

    Hey! That’s what’s up!!! I would love to see Soulja Boy venture off into other stuff I’m with him and I’m from Chicago and with Kanye, one of the greatest producer from Chicago… and knowing that Soulja Boy was born in Chicago… What great flavor they’ll come up with… and possibly a new brand in a genre of music!!!!

    every1 love 2 hate soulja boy cause he’s young, getting money and doing his thing. people try 2 make it like he’s a joke or he shouldve never did his thing cause theyre bitter they didnt when they were his age and still cant at their age. he aint the best rapper but for a teenager to have more than one hit record under his belt alreadty is saying something.

    Kanye is losing it. He’s that perfect right in the middle of real and commercial. He’s gonna go too far BS with Soulja Boy. Ye could become a hip hop legend, but associating yourself with Soulja Boy hurts that chance.

    And I just heard the dude to take Ye’s place as the perfect right in the middle, his name is Prote-J. Remember it.

    well…I’d better start by saying I read all the comments, and while I respect everyone’s opinions I found it easier to take more seriously the people who spell properly and don’t feel the need to overemphasize with a long line of exclamation marks.

    And I read this story and couldn’t stop laughing. I’m sorry, I appreciate Soulja Boy for the type of music he makes, but take into account the fact that his best songs are usually produced by someone else. Travis Barker made Crank That like ten times better by remixing it. I’m sorry, but I couldn’t imagine Soulja Boy producing for the guy who helped define The Blueprint.

    I have to admit, the only thing going for Soulja Boy is producing
    He just needs to stop “rapping” and just start focusing on producing because there is some potential for him to make some good beats
