NEW YORK (AP) - Soulja Boy is pulling a Kanye about Kanye West.

The rapper’s breakthrough song, “Crank Dat (Soulja Boy),” was up for the best rap song Grammy in 2008, but lost to West’s party anthem, the T-Pain-assisted “Good Life.”

Soulja Boy says initially he “wasn’t really thinking about it” and was optimistic that he would “get it next year.”

Now, the 20-year-old says while recording his recently released third album, “The DeAndre Way,” he felt like “he should have got that Grammy.”

The new CD has a song titled “Grammy,” which features singer-songwriter Ester Dean. Soulja Boy hopes that after the Grammy committee hears the track, it will change its “perception.”

West has earned 14 Grammys; Soulja Boy has not been up for an award since “Crank Dat” was nominated.
