Atlanta rapper Soulja Boy Tell Em recently revealed his past contemplation of quitting the rap game despite only four years and three solo albums.
He put that “Deandre Way” album and when it didn’t sell jack, he thought about hangin it up for good.
“[I stopped Twittering when my sales came back because] I just needed to take a break. I needed to think about things. I needed to evaluate my camp and what was going on in my circle. I had to talk to my family, the label, and my management. I had a big talk with the big bruh 50 Cent. I’m going to forever thank 50 because he guided me. When I was at my lowest point in my career and I just felt like I ain’t really want to do this music no more. I was like, ‘Man, I’m still young. I made enough money.’ My head was on a whole different radar, but he was like, ‘Man, you tripping little bro. You’ve got to keep it going.'” (Complex)
Man you better keep gettin that internet money. Rap is just one piece of the gamd homey!
