After selling over 3 million digital downloads, Soulja Boy's confidence is rising high. MTV is currently working on a "Hottest MC's In The Game" list and Soulja Boy says "I think if y'all did it right now, yeah, I deserve to be on there." He continued by saying "I'm Grammy-nominated," "If I look at the new list and I compare myself to all 10 of the artists and some don't add up, I'll be like, 'Wow. I should be #1 if it's right now. I'm #1."
When asked about being compared to other rappers like Jay-Z he says "Right now, yes [I'm hotter than them]." He said he is the best-selling online, highest-ranking on the Web and the most publicized rapper worldwide right now. "Today, January — whatever the date this is — 2008, yes [I am the hottest]," SB emphasized.
