I gotta deal with life...I've had a lot of success. I just look at this as a minor bump. I'll get focused back on the music after it's over with."
Soulja Boy's success in music is one reason the rapper feels he is being "targeted" by law enforcement officials, he says.
"I just feel like I'm a young, successful rapper," Soulja Boy said. "I do a lot of stuff. Instead of me being targeted or me being put through the whole situation, there's other criminals and other stuff going on that they can be attacking instead of focusing on me...I got a name and they go after anybody with a name."
As reported February 17, Soulja Boy announced that he is set to go to jail. "5 more days until I go to jail. Appreciate everyone who was there for me while I needed y'all," Soulja Boy said at the time.
