Soulja Boy opens up about what behind the new singles, which are listed on his new-released studio LP 'iSouljaBoyTellem'.
Soulja Boy reaches out to MTV for an interview involving a chat about new songs he crafted for his second studio album "iSouljaBoyTellem". During the interview, he reveals that single "I Pray" is "the deepest" song which narrates about his ordinary-turn-celebrity life.
"That's the deepest I ever got on a song, period, in my career. I was just really speaking on different situations. Me becoming a celebrity, coming from high-school student to being a celebrity and having people hate on you," he says. "How my moms feel about the situation. It's mixed emotions all round my family. You got people asking for money, people feeling a certain kind of way now that I'm in the situation I'm in."
On another track called "Rubber Bands", Soulja claims the song is to honor the rubber bands he used to wear. He explains, "I didn't used to rock all this jewelry. I used to rock rubber bands. Even on the 'Superman' video, I had the rubber-band necklace, the rubber-band bracelet. ... But the 'Rubber Bands,' that's for the old Soulja Boy fans."
Soulja Boy has released "iSouljaBoyTellem" since December 16 via Interscope Records. He collaborates with Sammie on "Kiss Me Thru the Phone" and Sean Kingston on "Yamaha Mama".
