Gregg DeGuire, FilmMagic

Soulja Boy is ready for his comeback. One year after the dismal reception of his third album, ‘The DeAndre Way,’ the 21-year-old wants the public to know that they shouldn’t count him out just yet. “Right now I’m working on my new album,” he tells The BoomBox. “It’s called ‘Promise’ — my fourth album to release from Interscope Records. It’ll be in stores top of 2012. I want everybody to support.”

Having become a millionaire at 18, Soulja Boy has changed a lot since his ‘Crank That,’ days and hopes that his transformation will reflect in his music. “[The album is] just really showing the growth and maturity of Soulja Boy,” he reveals. “It’s going to be dope. It’s going to be lot of great records on it, a lot of dope features, a lot of great production. I want all my fans to check it out.”

The Atlanta native is also reflecting on the past year, which has included the tragic death of his brother, being arrested for marijuana possession and angering the public with what were deemed as anti-army lyrics. “[I’m] thankful for my family, very thankful for my family,” he continues. “I’m very thankful to be in the position that I’m in right now, just to touch so many people and be a role model for all the young people that’s trying to come up in this world, and thankful to be alive.”

Soulja Boy’s most recent release came by way of the mixtape ‘Last Crown,’ which was available for download in early September.
