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.
