TMZ caught up with the 31-year-old at a gas station in Calabasas, Calif., on Monday, August 30, and asked about the new release.

The "Crank That" singer reportedly said that the 44-year-old wasted his time after allegedly reaching out to collaborate on "Remote Control." His verse on the track did not make the final cut, but the song was released with a Young Thug verse.

Soulja Boy — who was born DeAndre Cortez Way — told the outlet that he was upset that the "Famous" singer was allegedly spinning false stories on social media about the new release.

This comes after West claimed on Instagram that "Universal put my album out without my approval and they blocked 'Jail 2' from being on the album." Sources from Universal told Variety that West's allegations were "preposterous."

"Jail 2" — which features DaBaby and Marilyn Manson — was not available on streaming services when the album first dropped on Sunday, August 29, but has since appeared.

"You know for a fact that Kanye is not gonna let nobody release his album without his permission," Soulja Boy told TMZ.

Soulja Boy also told the publication that he was annoyed that West did not have the courage to reach out and explain why his verse was cut. "You could have called me personally, just like you called me personally to be on the album," he said.

While the rapper told the outlet that he had better things to do than to collaborate with West on work that never comes out, he is still open to working with the artist in the future.

"Don't waste my time. Just like you're working on your album, I'm working on my album too," Soulja Boy said.

Hours after Donda was released, the "She Make It Clap" singer posted screenshots of a conversation he appeared to have had with West about collaborating on the album and on a new Gap campaign. "This n***a Kanye smh. Tell homie dont hit my phone no more," he captioned the tweet.

In the messages, West appeared to tell Soulja Boy that he loved him and thought he was a "genius."

"Thanks that means ALOT coming from u," Soulja Boy responded. "I'm Down lets work on fashion and music."

Soulja Boy also told a fan on Twitter that he doesn't know how to feel about Donda. "Kanye sent me that song 'remote control' and I don’t hear my verse on it… hmm f**k that n***a," he said.
