Soulja Boy on Getting “Dropped” From Interscope, Producing for Lil Wayne’s Next Album, and Why He’ll Never Go Broke

Soulja Boy is no longer listed as an artist on Interscope’s website.

In May 2007, he signed with the label, at 16 years old. By September of that year, his single “Crank That” was multi-platinum and No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100. Since then, his wealth and relationship with Interscope have been as much of a point of discussion surrounding his career as his music. Given the anomolistic nature of his success, there’s an underlying perception that, eventually, Soulja Boy has to fall off, burn out, and go broke—but that simply hasn’t been the case.

There has, however, been some friction. In December 2011, TMZ reported that he was facing eviction on an Atlanta home. But it’s likely that he just forgot to make a few payments. The 22-year-old is still reportedly worth $23 million. What’s not so certain is his status with Interscope.

Aside from the fact that he isn’t on the roster of their website anymore, he’s had a recent history of tension with the record label.
