Rap artist Soulja Boy Tell’Em, who was previously in the news for making comments that he wanted to work with Kanye West, Jay-Z, and Lil Wayne for his next album, The DeAndre Way, claims that he didn’t like or understand Jay-Z’s music at first when he was young but now that he’s older, he understands and likes it. The comments come after Soulja Boy’s fans allegedly claimed that Jay-Z is ‘wack’ and wouldn’t be a good match for their favorite hip hop music artist, Soulja Boy.

“Jay-Z, I [Soulja Boy] always respected him. Always. But I didn’t always like his music,” Soulja Boy told MTV News. “I guess because I was too young, and I couldn’t understand what he was saying… I used to listen to a lot of Down South artists like Three 6 Mafia or Gucci Mane. But recently, since I’m older now and I grew up, I like Jay-Z now. I’m a fan of his music. At first, I used to just respect him because he was Jay-Z; now I’m a fan of his music and I wanna work with him.”
