Soulja Boy Tell Em recently talked about how he handles the online hate and criticism and how he actually finds inspiration in negative feedback from critics. Talking about disses on Twitter, which he recently deleted, Soulja Boy said he is confident in his music. "When I see stuff like that it makes my ego get bigger. Because it's like, d*mn, all these people are focusing on me–whether it's good or it's bad. I know that my music's the sh*t. It's only a certain group of people pushing that negative energy, so for all the other people that's seeing it that f*ck with me, that makes them want to go harder for me. When I see stuff like that, I know it's going to lead all these people to my name, period. It's funny, but at the same time, it's promotion."
