In an interview with HipHopDX Soulja Boy talked about the situation him and Lupe had going on a few weeks back, we reported. He addressed the issue and added that him and Lupe will do a song together. Read below:
DX: You give people plenty to talk about. You always seem to have a crazy-ass headline on the site, like this one from November 5th: “Soulja Boy Takes A Shot At Lupe Fiasco?” Can you elaborate a little bit on what you were saying to XXL about not wanting “to be super-Lupe-Fiasco lyrical…”?
Soulja Boy: They didn’t [publish] my whole statement. And basically, the interviewer dude, he was asking me why do I make lyrical songs like “Only God Knows,” “Born”… “The World So Cold,” and why do I make non-lyrical songs like “Crank That” and “Pretty Boy Swag”? And he was like, why don’t I just be lyrical all the time?And I was telling him on [a] specific song, like “Pretty Boy Swag,” I ain’t wanna be all lyrical. I just wanted to be straight-up, and just be simple, [so] people can get what I’m saying ‘cause it’s a club song. But I wasn’t saying as far as my whole music [output, with] all of my songs, that I don’t wanna be rappin’ like Lupe Fiasco. And they took it the wrong way, or whatever, and they blew it up.But I don’t even care, ‘cause controversy sells. And when that hit, Lupe hit me up and he was like, “Yo man, what’s up?” I was like, “Nah man, they just blew it outta proportion. I actually was giving you compliments.” And after that we chopped it up. We ‘bout to do a song [together].
