Soulja Boy says “Yeezus” was trash and asks Kanye West to be more open to collaboration in the future.
Discussing with Charlamagne Tha God, DJ Envy, and Angela Yee on Friday morning, Soulja Boy said that Ye shouldn’t have disrespected his “Remote Control” verse during his Drink Champs interview because he believes that the all-time music legend has also released some bad songs over his career.

“Alright so check this out, Kanye, you dropped the most trash… you ain’t never dropped a trash song in your life?!” yelled Soulja on the radio. “So that motherfuckin’ Yeezus album wasn’t trash?”
Charlamagne Tha God and DJ Envy both agreed that they don’t like that album before Soulja Boy continued.
“So who am I to come to you and say, ‘Kanye, Yeezus was trash!’ I know [I can say that] but I’m not finna say that! I’ma keep it G and just listen to it a couple more times, like, ‘Maybe he was tryna go this way wit’ it,’ I’ma give it a couple more listens [rather] than just publicly disrespect somebody’s work of art.”
When asked if he’s ever released music that he’s not personally fond of, Soulja yelled, “No! Everything I put out is fire!! What I’m trying to say is, though, Kanye West, when you’re making your album, be more open, bruh! What you think is trash is probably hard as fuck to a hundred million people. Why you think I’m #1?”
During the first part of his Drink Champs interview, Ye told N.O.R.E. and DJ EFN that he removed Soulja’s verse from his album because it wasn’t very good at all, saying it as though that were a globally-known fact. The second part of the interview is out now.
