The album's original first single was to be Soulja Boy's song "iDance," which was released online in 2008, but was dropped from the album for unknown reasons, with the possibility of "Bird Walk" catering more towards Soulja Boy Tellem's original breakout single Crank That (Soulja Boy).
"Bird Walk", was released as the album's first single on October 23, 2008. The song only managed to peak at number two on the Bubbling Under Hot 100 Singles chart. "Kiss Me Thru the Phone" featuring Sammie, was released on as the second single on November 28, 2008. It peaked at number three on the BillboardHot 100 in the US, becoming the rapper's second top ten hit. "Turn My Swag On", was released as the third single on January 26, 2009. It peaked at number nineteen on the Hot 100 in the US.
iSouljaBoyTellem was met with mixed to negative reviews from music critics who felt that it was recycled material from his previous album. David Jeffries of AllMusic said that the album came up short when trying to re-create the success of "Crank That" but praised "Shopping Spree" in that it "suggests some crossover hopes and desire for hardcore rap acceptance." Steve 'Flash' Juon of RapReviews said that the music "improved drastically" but still found the lyrics to be "as vapid and materialistic as it was before," concluding with, "Your best bet is to find a website you can listen to snippets of this album on and if one or two tracks strike your fancy, buy those. A whole album of SB's idiotic raps is still too much for one man or woman to take no matter how much better the beats are." Christian Hoard of Rolling Stone also commented on how the beats were more bulky but the delivery in the songs lacked charm in them.
