As Soulja Boy indulges his budding film career with a remake of the Ernest Dickerson hip-hop classic Juice, his longtime critic Ice-T felt the need to put him in his place. When asked about his feelings towards Soulja remaking the beloved Tupac Shakur movie in an interview with Shade 45, Ice-T wasn’t having it.
“What?” he responded, exacerbated. “But that’s Pac… At some point, somebody gotta stop it. I came out. I made some statements. Man, I don’t know. Do you, dude, do you. If the masses accept it, it shows you the state we’re in… Come on man, you think I’d try to remake Pac’s movie?”
While the duo’s initial beef was over rapping and what Ice-T felt was Soulja’s childish credentials in the game, this one is actually over something that the OG rapper has excelled at over the last decade: acting. During the interview, Ice’s tone was honest and harsh, yet not as dismissive as his statements during their initial spat over YouTube in 2008.
Soulja, with a few more years experience under his belt, came back strong, though. ‘Young niggaz taking over,” he tweeted. “I’m done with this nigga. Someone get this guy a hairline asap. If your name is Ice-T, you are losing not winning better yet you lost.”
There’s no turning back, either. Soulja Boy reportedly already started filming his remake of Juice. It currently has no release date. —Carter Maness
