This Explains a Lot About Soulja Boy...

"Jay-Z, I always respected him," Soulja told us. "Always. But I didn't always like his music. I guess because I was too young, and I couldn't understand what he was saying. ... I got signed when I was 16 years old. Before I got signed, I heard the song, and I was like, 'That's Jay-Z.' My favorite song from him was 'Dirt Off Your Shoulder.' I guess I liked the beat or the way he was flowing on there. Any other song I used to hear, I ain't really vibe with it like that. I used to listen to a lot of Down South artists like Three 6 Mafia or Gucci Mane. But recently, since I'm older now and I grew up, I like Jay-Z now. I'm a fan of his music. At first, I used to just respect him because he was Jay-Z; now I'm a fan of his music and I wanna work with him.

"In the car ride over here, we was listening to 'Brooklyn Go Hard,' " he added. "He said, 'I'm Jackie Robinson — I jack, I rob, I sin.' I didn't know he was snapping like that. Back then, I couldn't understand none of what he was saying."

If you can't understand one of the master's of your craft, then there's no way you would even be capable of creating your own quality "art"...which is why Soulja Boy's music can be generally classified as gimmicky ring tone rap.

And SMH at his favorite Jay-Z song being "Dirt Off Ya Shoulder".
