Soulja Boy says he once turned down an opportunity to sign Young Thug.
“I was working with Soulja Boy, and I was like ‘Thug, don’t worry, Imma get you out here with Soulja.’ I went to back to Soulja, I told him I had two people – I had Schoolie, and Young Thug that wanted to work with Soulja,” he said in a clip of a BHigh interview captured by DJ Akademiks.
“I brought Thug up to Soulja and he was like, ‘Man, nahhhhh. Blah, blah, blah.’ I’m like, ‘this dude is gonna be the biggest thing in Atlanta.’ I told him And guess what Thug said. I went to him, and I told him and he said, ‘Don’t worry about it, I don’t need him. I’m gonna sign him one day.’ And look how big he is now, he could sign that boy!”
Soulja also shared DMs showing that he could have signed NBA Youngboy.
