Soulja Boy Claims Upcoming ‘Paranormal Activity’ Mixtape ‘Better Than the Movie
Atlanta rapper Soulja Boy Tell Em has announced plans to release a sinister new mixtape, 'Paranormal Activity,' to coincide with Halloween.
The tape, which is one of three that the artist plans to release at once, ala Gucci Mane's 'Cold War' tapes, features five different DJ's and three distinct styles of Soulja Boy music.
"I wanted to have more music out and I wanted to have three different styles on three different tapes," Soulja Boy explained. "'DatPiff', I'm just going in on all the beats. Holiday sent me a whole lot of jacked beats and said, 'Lets go in on whatever's hot,' you feel me? Zaytoven sent me 10 beats. I used, like, three. The other one ['Cortez'], is just how I am in the game right now and [has] all the features I did. Me and Gucci are doing all types of features together like the joint I did, Teairra Marí's new single, ' Sponsor,' then there's one with Sean Garrett called 'Throw Money' and, of course, the 'LOL :-)' joint with Trey Songz. And I have the 'Gucci Bandana' joint -- all the features I recently did. The 'Paranormal Activity' s---, that's really the Halloween mixtape: dark beats that's gonna keep you vibing."
With 'Paranormal Activity,' the 19-year-old claims his intention was to create a project that is better than the film it was inspired by.
"I actually went to the movies to see it," Soulja said. "But why I really wanted to drop one with that title was because it was like, 'I'mma make this one better than the movie.' The movie was straight, but I was on Twitter and the movie has been a trending topic on Twitter for, like, a month straight. Plus it's Halloween-themed -- it's dropping on Halloween.
"'Cortez' is the beginning of a series," he continued. "That's my middle name. If you go on the Web, they got my middle name listed as Ramon all over the Web sites. I don't know why. That's the beginning of a series -- I might put out three or four more after I dropped that one."
Finally, 'DatPiff' ties the three tapes together, as it is a reference to the mixtape website DatPiff.com, where all three can be downloaded. Cop 'em while they're hot.
