Soulja BoySoulja Boy recently revealed that Cash Money Records founder, Birdman, has been trying to sign him to their label, which already boasts the likes of Lil Wayne, Nicki Minaj, Drake, and Bow Wow.

According to, the young rapper was recently in Miami, and Birdman reached out.

"Me and [Lil] Wayne, man. I talk to him, but I'm cool with Birdman," Soulja Boy explained. "When I'm in Miami I be with Birdman. He's trying to get me to come over to Cash Money. I'm cool with Birdman.

"When I was down in Miami for a couple of weeks recording with Sean Kingston, Birdman reached out to me. He said 'come and have a meeting with me' and he told me, 'Yo man you'd go perfect with everything we got going on. Whatever you want. I want to bring you over to this family, bring you to Cash Money,' " he continued.

At press time, it was unclear how close a deal was to being completed. However, Soulja Boy is currently signed to Interscope Records, where he's released his first three albums, his latest being 2010's The DeAndre Way.

In the meantime, Soulja Boy is currently filming a 45-minute mini-movie to coincide with the recent release of his new mixtape, Juice, which he plans to debut on BET later this year.

The Rage-direct film will feature the young rapper re-making the classic 1992 film of the same title, in which Soulja Boy will play "Bishop," originally played by Tupac Shakur, but in a updated version.

"Basically, it's your boy Soulja and I'm Bishop in 2011, running around in the streets, man," the rapper explained to Vibe. "You know how the movie goes, but we're flipping it and shooting in Atlanta. I want to show these people my acting side and me being creative -- always giving them something new; that's all.

"The whole mixtape is the soundtrack for the movie," Soulja Boy concluded.

Soulja Boy's Juice mixtape dropped on Wednesday (April 20), and is available for download at
