Soulja Boy explains why he does not talk about his emotions.

Soulja Boy went online for a stream recently and explained why he does not open up about his personal life. He knows that the internet does not care about how he feels about things, so he does not tell them. The philosophy that he has for his personal emotions is one of existential nihilism. That is to say, he does not believe that any one person is special. The only reason people listen to him is because of his music and his money.

Soulja Boy started the stream by talking about how you can't talk about your emotions on the internet. He tells his audience that the world is cruel and unforgiving and that strangers online will make fun of you for your traumas. Soulja Boy also talks about how people call him cocky. He explains that he covers his emotions with his cockiness while flexing his pile of cash that is next to him, implying that the only thing that actually matters in the world is money. Money is the only thing that has any intrinsic value to it. The more you have, the more that you matter to the world. This is standard fare for existential nihilism. When nothing has inherent value, you focus on what has external value, which is money.

Soulja Boy Thinks Nobody Matters

Soulja Boy also explains that the reason he does not get mad at the world for being a cruel and unforgiving place is that he knows that everyone is going through their own issues. Everyone has their own issues that they are not telling the world. As such, we all just focus on making money to avoid said issues.

He finishes the conversation by talking about why he does not do interviews very often. Whenever he does do them, they go viral. As such, there is nothing personal about them. They are pure entertainment, so he will treat them as such while he focuses on getting money. The existential nihilist believes that the world is cruel and unforgiving because we are all insignificant in the grand scheme of things. As such, the only thing that matters is enjoying your time alive and slightly changing the few things that can be controlled, such as money.
