Soulja Boy -The Steve Jobs of the Music Industry


In a recent interview Soulja Boy talks about being innovative in hip hop and his role as the 'Steve Jobs' of the music industry...

From Billboard
"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."

Wow. These youngsters (90s babies) sure are disrespectful, coupled in with the fact that they exhibit these false senses of entitlement.

like most attention whores, he resorts to saying something that's totally outrageous to get people talking. I see his game. He went so far as to compare himself to Steve Jobs. The dude who made Apple Computers,pcu's, and i-phones. The only thing soulja boy invented was a dance, a wack one at that. Soulja boy youuuuu need to stfu!

Nah I see the relationship. Cuz his career is about as dead as Steve Jobs'. RIP to both of them..

i think hes a clown but u have to give him credit. he did make his own beat, wrote the song, released it independently, and it shot to number 1. how many other people can say that? just off that one song alone he's a multi-millionaire , since he didnt have to pay more a record label,writers, producers,etc. he probably made more off that one song than most current artists make in a couple albums, sine theres so many people to pay out.

How about Steve Jobs is the Steve Jobs of music Soulja. iTunes, iPod, iPod touch. Come on son. You think Steve Jobs was sitting around going, 'Everytime I do something they copy it wa-wa-wa" Quit crying. That should pressure you to put out more, better music. When you THINK they copy you, you sit aroud to analyze all of your imaginary haters. When Steve Jobs thought they copied him, he just kept hitting them with new product every 6 months (so it seemed). Step it up soulja and quit imagining your haters.
