"I'm working on Kanye's next album right now. We working together on production because he makes beats and I make beats," Soulja Boy tells Rap-Up.com. "Right now I'm remixing a couple of records for him."

In return, 'Ye is also contributing some of his Grammy-winning material for Soulja Boy's third LP The DeAndre Way. "I'm actually working on [Kanye's] album while he's working on my album."

West defended the Crank That MC when he came under attack from Ice-T last year. "Soulja Boy is fresh as hell and is actually the true meaning of what hip-hop is supposed to be," he wrote in a blog entry. "He came from the 'hood, made his own beats, made up a new saying, new sound, and a new dance with one song. If that ain't hip-hop, then what is?"
