Soulja Boy Says Birdman Wants Him On Cash Money; Reprises 2Pac's "Juice" Role
Mr. Tell Em says Birdman wants him to join Cash Money and says he's "Bishop in 2011" as he prepares to drop a "Juice" remake.
According to Soulja Boy, Birdman has been trying to add him to the Young Money/Cash Money family. Soulja Boy recently revealed this much when speaking with The Boom Box, acknowledging that he's "cool with Birdman."
"Me and [Lil] Wayne, man. I talk to him, but I'm cool with Birdman," he said of his relationship with the two leaders of Cash Money. "When I'm in Miami I be with Birdman. He's trying to get me to come over to Cash Money. I'm cool with Birdman."
"When I was down in Miami for a couple of weeks recording with Sean Kingston, Birdman reached out to me. He said, 'Come and have a meeting with me.' He told me, 'Yo man, you'd go perfect with everything we got going on. Whatever you want, I want to bring you over to this family, bring you to Cash Money.'"
Currently, Soulja Boy still has contractual obligations to Interscope Records.
Fans of Soulja Boy may not catch him signing with Wayne or Birdman just yet but they can expect a mini-movie from the rapper. He has filmed a short film that is meant to be a remake of 1992's Juice, a film that saw Tupac playing the role of Bishop. In the updated version, Soulja Boy will play Bishop and he says that he's "Bishop in 2011."
"Basically, it's your boy Soulja and I'm Bishop in 2011, running around in the streets, man," He told Vibe. "You know how the movie goes, but we're flipping it and shooting in Atlanta. I want to show these people my acting side and me being creative -- always giving them something new; that's all.
The film will also be titled Juice and his mixtape of the same name is meant to be the soundtrack.
"The whole mixtape is the soundtrack for the movie," he noted.
