In a recent interview Soulja Boy talks about being innovative in hip hop and his role as the 'Steve Jobs' of the music industry...
"I just want to find a way to make [music] better and be innovative. I'm confident. I'm very confident," Soulja Boy said. "If I got to be the Steve Jobs of [the] f*ckin' music industry then so be it."
Besides producing his own beats as he did when starting in the game, Soulja Boy plans to call on a few friends for his upcoming album, due early 2012.
"Drizzy [ Drake]. Me and Drizzy. We definitely going to drop something. Definitely Busta Rhymes, Lil B," Soulja Boy said. "I mean there's artists out there, but its like, shit got dry in the last few years. N*ggas be trying to sound like me and shit.
I listen to a hit, its like 'Okay it's a hit, but it sounds like me.'"
"Every time I do something they copy it," Soulja Boy said of competitors. "I mean its cool, it makes me bigger and shit. But it's just like… Once you do so much copying, I can't do me then."
