Q&A with Soulja Corleone

Soulja Corleone recently broke his silence with doing a Q&A session on Where he allowed his followers from Twitter to ask him anything. During the Q&A fans sparked some response about Soulja Corleone's retirement, and the still unreleased album.

Soulja did answer every question in detail for the fans, and cleared up any rumors about him, and his hiatus. The more introspective questions are below.

Q: When is the album being released?

Soulja Corleone: The album will be released when its ready. I have no intention to release the album if I'm not truly satisfied with it. And, at this point in working on the album. I haven't been fully satisfied with material. Until I am. The album will stay unreleased.

Q: Why retire so early in your career?

Soulja Corleone: It may seem early to people who caught onto my music late. But, I have over a decade invested into the music. I think I've had a great run as a solo artist, and its time for me to focus on other things musically than just being a face, and brand to go along with the music. I honestly think I have more to offer musically where I don't have to be out front, or have my name placed on the front cover. And, with that the music will benefit more than my ego.

Q: Will there ever be a sequel to Mildley Woods?

Soulja Corleone: There was a time I thought of doing a sequel to it. But, in retrospect it wouldn't have helped the integrity of the Mildley Wood persona. My music changed so much since the release that it would have brought what people loved about Mildley Woods into the world of Soulja Corleone. And, I like to keep those two separate.

Q: What's makes Mildley Woods different from Soulja Corleone?

Soulja Corleone: Mildey Woods is a persona of Soulja Corleone. Its like Nino Brown is a persona of Wesley Snipes. Mildley is a more easy going party persona, where as Soulja Corleone is a realist, political, emotional persona. At the end of the day. I am both of them since I created at them.

Q: What happened to The Team and YBG?

Soulja Corleone: The Team is YBG. And, nothing happened to the group. Just the artist who make the group has moved onto other things in their careers, and we talk about doing another YBG project all the time, but it just hasn't happened.

Q: What is your favorite album/mixtape of your catalog?

Soulja Corleone: Honestly, I have no favorite. All of my music is growth of me as a artist throughout the years. But, if I would have to pick one. It would be "Who is Mildley Woods?" because that project was never intended to be released. It was just music I was working on while working on another project. And, it took form on its own. Its been 4 years since its been out, and listening to it is still new, and refreshing to me.

Q: How is your relationship with everyone on SDIMG?

Soulja Corleone: My relationship with everyone who was on the label is still good. We speak when we can, and there is no bad blood between any of us at the end of the day. Whenever any of them need me. I'm always going to be there for them. I don't know why people tend to think that we had label falling out, or something. But, we're all good. And, very respectful of each other's career choices. 

Q: Who is your competition?

Soulja Corleone: Honestly, I'm my own competition. If that would answer the question. But, if it comes down to any of the people I've worked with. They're all my competition. And, my top competitor is Jay Hollin. He has always been my main competitor when it came down to music. At one point when we first started, I knew it was nothing to make a better verse than him. But, as he grew as a artist, he made me question my verses, re-write verses, re-record songs. And, I am most happy for him for where he's at in his career. I know when to take Ls, and I took a few to him on some songs. 

Soulja Corleone Confirms Track For Upcoming Album

Soulja Corleone dropped a track out of no where. Early for some, but late for others on March 3rd. The new entitled "Smoker, and a Drinker" popped up on Soulja Corleone's SoundCloud page with no form of announcement from his Twitter or Facebook pages. 

At this point in time is normal for a release from Soulja Corleone. The real shocker is that Soulja did update his Facebook page saying "It has begun. Redemption on the way. Just wait on it."

Its's been a real quiet project for Soulja Corleone working on this new album. Many people either have forgotten, or just don't care anymore about it. And, it seems as Soulja doesn't care to rush himself in putting this album out any sooner than when he wants to.

Sources close to Soulja Corleone says he has been working on the project, and being very discreet about its progression. But, the first official release from the album in the form of this new track. Is a sign that he is working at his own pace, and making some great material while doing so.

Check out the new track "Smoker, and a Drinker" below.

Soulja Corleone Says "Redemption Is My Last Album, Then I'm Done"

Soulja Corleone who is no stranger to taking break from creating music. Has made an announcement that might change his career.

Through sources close to the rapper. It has been said that his "Redemption" album that is slated for release this year. Will be the final album of the artist. As of recent there has been alot of wonder around the artist. Who has been seemly venting his frustrations through his music.

In a newly released track entitled "RunNTellDat" uploaded to Soulja Corleone's SoundCloud page. It seems as Soulja Corleone is either in defense, or on the attack of some speculators. Following the release of that track. Another track was posted entitled "The Message"to the page. Where Soulja Corleone parodies people asking him for studio time at the beginning of the song, and lays a verse that is seemly unforgettable. Speaking on how people have taken the fact that he's been rapping for so long, and now quitting. For the reason things aren't like they used to be. He closes the verse with 
"I stole, borrowed, reinvented flows, now I got so many, that I can let them go, and let you n*ggas have one, but just know they all clones, my unwanted sons, even if they write they own sh*t, they ain't sh*t without the n*gga who gave them, their first hit." 
Obviously the line, and the song entirely is aimmed at someone, but Soulja Corleone hasn't spoken on the situation. As far as the upcoming album from Soulja Corleone. Sources have said that he his working on the album, but still doesn't have a release date of any sort. 

Soulja Corleone Speaks on Quitting Music

Soulja Corleone recently opened up on his Facebook page. In a now deleted post about how he contemplated quitting music for good.

The topic was raised with the release of "Over" from the newly released "Journey EP" mixtape. In the song Soulja speaks on how he has dedicated his life to making music, and hasn't earned much from it. He also touches on his hiatuses from making music. And, how people he has helped with their careers, but after reaching success. Turn their backs on him.

In the post Soulja cleared up any misconceptions the song might have made. He says "For who this may concern.. There has been many dark periods in my life that I've vented through my music. And, in turn my music is part of my identity, and something I can't change. But, to set the record straight. Yes, it is true. I've thought long and hard about quitting music. But, not in the sense of quitting it completely. More or less quit making it public. The music I make has always been for my own listening pleasure. I never attempted to seek fame or fortune out of this gift, and skill. But, I did make it public. So, that others may have access to my story, my views, my thoughts. And, maybe that's where I went wrong."

He continues the post with "Me having harsh feelings towards anyone I worked with? Never. I love everyone I've worked with past, and future. No hard feelings at all. I've always told anyone who has worked with me that there is a level pass this one, and I won't be mad, or jealous that they reached for it. And, that they never had think that they had to come back for me after they made it. My understanding is everyone has their own journey in life, and career. So, if I hadn't made it there on my own. It wasn't my time to be there in my life, and career. I've been blessed with many opportunities to take it there. But, to really assume greatness takes time, and patience. The greater I become, the greater the opportunity will be."

He then finishes the post off with "I will continue to make music for myself, and anyone that decides to listen. The people who have rode with me through all the years of my career, and seen me grow into the artist I am at the moment, and you know I didn't start this yesterday. Any person with as many years into making music as me would have been blown up, and fell from grace twice by now. LOL. But as I said before I haven't assumed greatness yet. The album will be in the works along with much more music, and collaborations. Just wait on it."

Since the original post was deleted Soulja Corleone's Facebook page has been quiet, although he has been active on Twitter speaking on new music. As for confirmation on a collaborating mixtape with Will Boy hasn't come through yet, but it shouldn't be to far down the line.

Soulja has spoken in the past with high regard to working with Will Boy on a joint project. But, that never happened. And, in the case you call Soulja Corleone's "Return to the Underground" mixtape. A Soulja Corleone/Will Boy collaboration mixtape. Since Will Boy did feature on 5 of the 10 tracks. Which Soulja Corleone did call a "unofficial" collaborative project between the two.

Some only had a verse laid down from one of us waiting on the other to complete it. But, you can do the math."
