Soulja Boy’s 2008 song, Kiss Me Thru The Phone, is one of the most popular songs the award-winning rapper is fondly remembered for. Following its release, the song attained several feats including being the best-selling single from his iSouljaBoyTellem album as well as earning the number one spot on the U.S. Rap Charts.

Besides those successes, the 32-year-old recently told HipHopDX that he also made some money from the number that Sammie sang in the song, per Complex. “We gotta get the number back, man,” Soulja Boy said in reference to the (678) 999-8212 number after he was informed it now goes to dial tone. “That number so legendary, man, you know how they do. It used to be my number. It actually was my number at a point in time. When I first dropped that song, that was my number.”

Following the song’s release, the number in question was used as a message system for the award-winning rapper. He also revealed he made some cash from the number. “Alright, let me tell y’all the real story. Boom. So that number was like a fan line,” he said.

“So every time somebody called that number, I was getting paid off of that s***t. It was like a subscription. You could text it or call it, so I was probably making like $100,000 a month off of that, just people calling that number.”

The company that owned the number in question ceased operations about three years after the song was released. “So I guess once they shut down, somebody came and got the number, you feel me?” he said. “But I gotta get that number back though, for sure.”

Elsewhere in the interview, the rapper also revealed he initially wanted Chris Brown to sing the hook to the single. “I wanted to sing it myself originally, but I was like nah, I really wanna give it that extra feel. And now I see the success that it got, I feel like I was right,” he revealed.

“I was trying to get Chris [Brown] on that muthaf…ka. Chris was supposed to sing the hook, bro. I don’t know what happened though, so that’s why I don’t even speak on it. Shout out to Sammie though… He killed it.”
