After a party at an abandoned Atlanta suburb house had Soulja Boy running from the police, the rapper told fans on Monday that he was in studio under the production of Kanye West, MTV.com reports.
The unusual pairing was enhanced by a previous rumour that West had fled to India after missing the BET hip-hop awards last weekend.
Soulja Boy was reportedly booked during the filming of the music video for his new track “Gangsta Muzik.” After spending a night in prison he was released on $550 bond.
The incident was characteristic of Soulja Boy’s immaturity. Creating music that hasn’t yet surpassed catchiness, the young rapper’s development and artistic respect lies in the hands of Kanye West. West has contributed to the careers of respected young artist like Drake, Kid Cudi and Lupe Fiasco.
