Kanye West said Soulja Boy is one of the most influential rappers ever, but he didn’t shy away from saying his verse on “DONDA” was trash.
When the topic of Soulja Boy came up during his recent appearance on Drink Champs, Ye sang the rapper’s praises before completely violating him.
“I’m not gonna argue with you n***as about this at all,” said Ye. “Soulja Boy is top 5 most [influential] as far as what we are today.”
N.O.R.E. proceeded to ask why he took him off the album though, and Ye was clear in his response.
“You ain’t hear that verse?” asked Ye, seemingly trashing Big Draco’s bars.
“Nope, the verse wasn’t good?” asked N.O.R.E.
“Nah, but I tell you what though…” said Ye, and that was all he needed to reveal before the audience realized exactly why Soulja Boy was removed from the album. Clearly, Ye thought his verse was garbage, so he replaced him with Young Thug.
Elsewhere during the interview, Ye spoke about his feud with Drake, his marriage to Kim Kardashian, and more. He also said that he sent a group text message to Kim, Drake, JAY-Z, Kid Cudi, Travis Scott, and others telling them that he’s richer than all of them combined. Read more about that here.
