Soulja Boy Confirms He & Kanye West 'Are Good' After Sharing Heated Text Exchange: 'Don't Think I'm Against Him'
Kanye West and Soulja Boy seem to be on good terms after all.
The rappers seemingly butted heads last week when the "Crank That" hitmaker joked on his Instagram Story about Kim Kardashian and Pete Davidson's relationship. "Now you running around Hollywood crying like a b***h," he said of the 44-year-old, per HipHopDX, during an Instagram live with fans.
On Sunday, February 20, Soulja Boy — who was born DeAndre Cortez Way — shared screenshots of a text exchange with the "Donda" singer on his Instagram Story. West, who legally changed his name to Ye, allegedly told the young rapper not to talk about him nor his estranged wife.
In response, the 31-year-old called him "lame as f**k," adding: "I speak on what I want. Go get yo b***h back."
Ye seemed to drop the subject and offered to send the "Turn My Swag On" singer a Stem Player, which is a device he dropped with the first Donda album last year, allowing users to remix song. West also asked Soulja Boy to sing a verse on Donda 2. "Man what Ye on," Soulja Boy captioned the screenshot.
As reported by OK!, Ye announced last week that he will be releasing Donda 2 exclusively on his Stem Player.
Soulja Boy later took to his Instagram Story to explain there's no bad blood between him and Ye. "Listen. Me and Ye is all good," he began. "Just a lil friendly jokes and fun. Don't think I'm against him."
He revealed they talked through their issues and worked it out. "We both two smart individuals chasing our dreams," he continued. "We both act lil crazy sometimes but we know what we doing. It's all love never get confused."
As reported by OK!, Soulja Boy was disappointed with West last year when a verse he claimed to have recorded for Ye's track "Remote Control" was cut, but the song was still released on Donda with a Young Thug verse.
He explained he was frustrated Ye didn't reach out personally to let him know his verse wasn't going to be released. However, Soulja Boy noted he was open to working with the "All Of The Lights" hitmaker again in the future, he just didn't appreciate having his time wasted.
