Soulja Corleone recently broke his silence with doing a Q&A session on Ask.fm. 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.
