"Me and Nick Cannon have been talking back and forth for, like, the last year about a movie idea," the 20-year-old dished on the project. "I did a movie with him earlier this year with ['School Gyrls'], and it went straight to Nickelodeon. It was a good movie, but it was mostly for kids. We were talking back and forth, and he wants me to star in a movie that he wrote when he was, like, 17."

Making sure he didn't spoil too much on the project, the Grammy nominee turned the subject to his hope to shoot his biopic. "I want people to know my story," he reasoned.

He added that "a movie would paint the picture so much better."

As for his music, Soulja explained about his upcoming single "Speakers Going Hammer" from next album "The DeAndre Way". He said, "Basically, it's all about the sound of the music. I got bars on this one. First verse, second verse, all bars - another anthem, as far as the hook. The hook is catchy. The video is gonna match the song perfect. And it's another hit."
