Soulja Boy tells XXL Magazine he is about to step his lyrical game up to be recognized as one of the greats such as Jay-Z and Kanye West and . However, do not expect him to rap like Lupe Fiasco.
“I can’t keep playin’ around, because if you keep playin’ around, people are gonna think you’re a joke,” he adamantly states “At some point, you have to get serious.”
“I don’t want to be super-Lupe-Fiasco-lyrical and niggas don’t know what the fuck I’m talking about,” he added.
“I want to be the best,” he continued. “I want to be recognized in that category where I’m nominated for Best Rapper with Jay-Z and Kanye and Wayne. I wanna get a Grammy. I want Best Rap Album of the Year… I’ve made millions of dollars off of doing my style, but, hey, I can rap, too.”
