Soulja Boy Kill Ya’self

Someone ought to sit Soulja Boy down and explain to him that not only is the GZA a way better rapper than him, but that back when the Wu-Tang Clan was worth a shit, they were way more successful than he’ll ever be.

The thing is, Soulja Boy is probably not old enough to know any better. I checked Wikipedia and, come to find out, he wasn’t even born until the 1990s. So he isn’t even an ’80s baby, like the late, great Sickamore (and also, I suppose, myself). This little fucker is actually, like, the first of the ’90′s babies. Yikes!

Here’s hoping they aren’t all such idiots. (I bet the girls are gonna be hot, regardless!)

It would be like my not understanding that Michael Jackson is the King of Pop, never mind the fact that he’s a serial child rapist, because I was only a baby when Thriller was released. The difference, of course, being that I have the ability to read, and to tell from good music.

Soulja Boy, meanwhile? Not so much.

Since I was there anyway, I checked the (entirely unnecessary) page for his new joint “Yahhh!” and I see the part about how him and his boy Arab (who really is an Arab, though apparently he’s not that smart) failed the ninth grade twice before dropping out of high school.

The fact remains though: Soulja Boy failed the ninth grade twice, and was probably left with no other choice but to drop out of high school (or either go to a school for retarded kids) – probably because he can’t read. How else are you gonna fail the ninth grade not once, but twice?

Reading about this interview he did recently with Rhapsody, I see he wasn’t even aware of who the GZA was until recently, when his producer Mr. Collipark sat him down and explained it to him. This, too, would seem to support my theory that Soulja Boy’s real problem (er, at least one of them) is that he’s fucking illiterate.

Think about it: If this guy is Internets-savvy enough to tap out the beat for “Crank That” on a trial version of Fruity Loops, record a video of himself doing his sambo routine to it, and then upload it to YouTube, how come he couldn’t just type ‘GZA’ into Wikipedia and educate himself?

The guy’s obviously functionally illiterate. He’s like those people who work at McDonalds who can’t read the menu themselves, but fortunately there’s little pictures of each of the sandwiches on their keyboard. Or a Mexican who can build a house, but couldn’t speak a lick of ingles to save his life.

If he could read, he would see that his little bullshit album has only gone gold so far, while GZA’s Liquid Swords shipped gold, whatever that means. And it’s since gone platinum. Granted album sales these days are down across the board, but I’m pretty sure a shiteload of money is still a shiteload of money.

Furthermore, the GZA was a member of the Wu-Tang Clan, which fucking dominated back in the mid ’90s, selling millions and millions of records. As big as the Soulja Boy phenomenon is today, it’ll never be as big as the Wu was back then.

So why should the GZA feel jealous of Soulja Boy?

However, you have to wonder how some of these rappers coming up today don’t feel embarrassed by the fact that they fucking suck balls compared to some of these older guys. Never mind all that sales bullshit, Soulja Boy would get eaten alive in a battle by the GZA, who’s got to be into his 40s at this point.

My guess is that he does, and that that’s the real issue. 12 years after the fact, legions of cracka-ass crackas (and also Bol) are still willing to shell out to see the GZA rip joints from Liquid Swords. Soulja Boy, meanwhile, knows good and well no one’s gonna give a shit about him once he’s that age.

He’s like Fatlip in that movie What’s Up, Fatlip? (Except way less talented.) For his sake, he better hope this all doesn’t end with him receiving a blow job from a girl who’s actually a guy. Either way, I’d say he’s a fruit.

      Classic

      But I don’t understand how GZA can’t say something about his music just because he’s 17. Nas put out “Halftime” when he was 19. If he feels like his music sucks, then it sucks in his opinion. And fuck this lil’ nigger getting his money, it’s bullshit that he calls hip-hop. It ain’t like he got a family to feed.

      • SUN

        The thing about NaS is he actually made halftime 2 years before Illmatic dropped. So he was 17.

        YUP HE WAS 17.

    That ain’t a good look for a vet like him, never mind what he thinks.

    Just leave it alone don’t worry bout dat nigga.

    • SUN

      the thing that everyone keeps forgetting…GZA didn’t say anything himself, he asked the crowd how they felt about Soulja boy and the rest continued

    • Umpington the Fif

      GZA’s annoyed that such a retard (with no lyrical skills whatsoever) can get rich off of such an awful song, and that talent is going unnoticed in this day and age

  • Boosie

    Weren’t you just bad mouthing, the Wu-tang on another posts?

    I’m thinking this is just another attempt to be controversial, because Most people are just saying to leave soulja boy alone, he is not catered to our demographic.

    Don’t they rap on NOW, and Highschool musical? why dont I hear rappers coming out against them.Sure soulja boy is not lyrically inclined, but He doesnt want to be, thats the whole point, He isnt trying to rap like Wu-tang or anybody else. He wants to make Dance rap songs.

    So is there an Academy of Hip-hop, does Hip-hop have to sound a certain way?
    Does everyone have to rap like the GZA?

    Didnt you clown Lupe Fiasco when he brought your name up? Your writing skills can never be as good as His. Isnt it safe to say that you are the Soulja Boy of the Blog game, No real talent just gimmicks?
    Don’t You do Sambo dances for the White Man, putting blacks down? Get a grip Nigga.

  • http://www.freshfeature.com Fresh.

    I don’t know why we have to call him a “fruit” or refer to gay people as “fruits”, but I will say that ” this motherfucker can’t rap”. Over Thanksgiving I asked some of my cousins who are all in their mid and early teens what they thought of Mr. Soulja boy. They all just really liked the dance that goes with the song. That’s it. He has to have part of his brain somewhere, because he figured out how to make that shit, and I do mean shit quite literally a hit. An aside do the kids know that Bapes are a little hard to find in the south? And that, the shit he was wearing early on was fake? Shame of him for not knowing who GZA is, but how can we blame him, if Lupe Fiasco can forget the words to “Electric Relaxation” during a tribute and still get to sit on his pedestal? It’s fucked up. Mostly, I try to not let his existence bother me because, I know that he’ll be Soulja who? in less than a year. Pull out your fuckin egg timers.

    • Tiesh

      How can you even put Soulja Boy not knowing who GZA is and Lupe forgetting the words to a song on the same level. Lupe said he never listened to Tribe or anyone from the Native Tongues when he was growing up because that just wasnt the music he was raised on. He never said he didnt know who they were. He actually didnt even wanna DO Hip Hop Honors because he felt it would be disrespectful, Tip ASKED him to do it and he KNEW Lupe didnt know the song. SO dont even put Soulja Boy’s blatant ignorance on the same level like alot of you hip hop elitists are doing.

  • Fire

    People are giving Soulja Boy way too much attention. That’s the reason he hasn’t been forgotten yet. He found a good way to get money from the ignoramus population, but let his 15 minutes of fame end already.

    To keep it real…I put this on another soulja boy vs GZA post….GZA should have never opened his mouth about soulja boy. Why would he? Everyone know’s that GZA would tear that little dirty boy a new ass hole lyrically. So when GZA said that shit….i thought of him as a hater. Fuck soulja boy first and for most…but i can say that. I’m a spectator…not a rapper. And plus…even though his illiterate ass cant rap for shit, i’m always happy to see little niggas get their money, and GZA should have never put his name in his mouth…plain and simple

  • ri067953

    Yo, Bol. My thoughts exactly. The fact that Soulja Boy is young doesn’t excuse his shitty music. As I pointed out before, the juice crew were in their teens and early 20′s and they were pumping out classic music. A Soulja Boy sophmore album will never see the light of day! Meanwhile, no matter how shitty their music is now, the Wu have done enough to cement their place in hip-hop history.

  • 41510dabay

    Some of the older generation is going through somewhat of a mid-life crisis with this rap shit. I’m from the 90′s rap era with Pac, Big, Nas.. etc. We didn’t keep the Big Daddy Kanes, Epmd, or KRS-Ones hot. We moved on to our own identities. Even then the generation before said the same stuff. The 90′s rap ain’t nothing like the 80′s. Now I’m not saying Soulja Boy is the most talented or whatever but he’s not for us 90′s rap lovers. So what us 90′s rap lovers need to do is stop acting like grumpy old men and let the next generation have they shine. Obviously they like it so let it be. No matter how I feel I know once I’m in my ride I’m gone CRANK DAT PAC no matter what.

    • micguevara

      1 thing you are forgetting,in the 90′s hiphop noone disrecpected the old school like they do these days,Matter of fact you aud you liked pac,well he made songs biging up the old school…”whta more can i say,i wouldn’t be here today if the old school did’t path the way”
      2nd off to everyone else,gza didnt talk about putting hands on nooone or anthing like that,he talked with a bunch of hiphop fans about hiphop.

    soldier boy is trash…black people as a whole need to better understand the concepet of respecting legends. Weather it be the GZA, or whoever. If it weren’t for people like wu-tang, pac, and scarface, there probably wouldn’t even be a soldier boy. Let me explain….I think that popular rappers who filled their music with political insight were getting so powerful that the powers that be started a fake east/west beef, killed pac, and ushered in the new wave young coonery. Thus, these days, it’s waaaaay easier for a monkey like soldier boy to get major pub, than a real rapper who might raise the level of consciosness, such as GZA.

    Its a pity today’s mc’s don’t feel any shame towards their aching mediocrity (which is the nicest that can be said of the soulja boy clique) Sadly as a ninties baby myself even though born in the late 80′s I feel ill to my stomach with trash being poured out nowadays. I hate to to admit it but also today’s female listeners especially in the black community have really receded. You have girl’s singing supersoak that hoe’ and doing that fucking dance and then they get fucking mad when people call em hoes??!!! Listeners, more than musicians are to blame! It makes you seriously wonder what fucking hole in baghdad these people were in just as recently as 2000-03 when a fraction of good hip hop was still around? It’s like as soon as the toxic dumpsters popped open with huey, soulja boy, the “party like a rock star” flunkies (where’d they go?) all these people just came out of nowhere bumpin and singing to them as if they’d been around for eons!! Sad shit peoples!! Sad shit!

I love party music just as much as the next guy (Im from Miami), but this Folja Boy shit is rediculous. Juvie’s “Back dat Azz Up”, at least had SOME sort of lyricism.

    Well Done. Finally we see eye to eye. Soulja Boy is garbage. You people defending him should be ashamed of yourself. He’s making Hip-Hop look like a joke. That’s why GZA is speaking up. GZA ain’t jealous. GZA reps Hip-Hop to the fullest.

    • http://www.bleedingstranger.com Jasper

      Yea, this is exactly the problem. I was talking to my girlfriend recently, and I was complaining about current mainstream hip-hop and how it doesn’t require talent, and she thought it was silly what I was saying. She actually said something like “rap isn’t like a skilled art form”, and I was dumbfounded, and I said “if you think that, then that’s exactly why I have beef with this new rap music.” Because yea, it’s OK to like whatever you like; if people like Soulja Boy, that’s their right, but at the same time, if you’re now having the impression that hip-hop doesn’t require skill, this is a serious problem, because there are really talented rappers that aren’t getting the recognition they deserve, and this nonsense pop-rap is dragging down the perception of hip-hop as a serious music genre.

You’re already stating the complete obvious, trying to get people to laugh along with you and get a lil more public note off of your blog. I don’t like Soulja boy, or any wack “lean wit it rock wit it” rap shit, but a majority fail to give Soulja Boy proper credit for doing everything on his own basically. Pac, Em, Jay, BIG for life.

    Ok, so soulja boy is wack.
    1. What does that mean?
    2. Is there a specific way rap is supposed to sound?
    3. Do ya’ll cats hear Muzik, D’angelo, Raphael Sadiiq, get on the mic and say, Omarion and Chris Brown cant sing?
    4. Why would some nigga bring up another Nigga’s name at a Concert for the crowd to say fuck him?
    5. If YOU were rapping would you bring up soulja boy’s name?

    All you idiots talking about, Gza didnt say anything about soulja boy it was the crowd. PLEASE, you sound Like wack ass lawyers, the nigga brung up his name to try to clown him, only to hide behind the crowd in their words and thoughts. Look at the video again, the whiteboy says “fuck soulja boy and 50 cent” and GZA keeps giving him the MIC to say it. Now he’s basically hiding behind the crowd. If he didnt think that about soulja boy, why did he keep passing the mic to the lil white kid to say “soulja boy”. GTFOH.
    If the nigga would have said “Fuck RZA or FucK Joell Ortiz, you think GZA would have keep giving him the MIC?

    Ya’ll need to understand Music changes, Its gonna be plenty of more soulja boy’s coming. Some of ya’ll are like the same people who thought Hammer was kiling hip-hop, and just a couple years ago Ya’ll thought nelly was killing it, only to find out, nelly aint as near as wack soulja boy.

    Ok soulja boy is wack? what does that mean? He’s not there for you. His demographic is not catered to xxl Readers?
    Why dont you people get mad at the 3 million people who are downloading his shit?
    You want him to stop rapping Just cause YOU dont like His music? LMAO. Thats like Niggas getting mad at Mcdonalds cause it makes them fat. If you dont eat it, you dont have to get fat. Simple, right?
    Just cause McDonalds makes dumb niggas fat, they should go outta Business? Apply this same principle to Soulja Boy. McDonalds aint catered to ya’ll health freak vegetarians, just like Soulja boy is not catered to YOUR type of hip-hop.

    shits disgusting b.

    a 42 year old Nigga trying to diss a 17 yr old kid. Why? You had your run, Just cause you not hot no more, you wanna bring up another nigga’s name. That’s straight hate.

    Thats like Patti Labelle dissing Rihanna, cause she aint making “real” music.

  • The Spaniard

    Everybody join hands and slap each other on the back and jerk each others wangs because anything anyone does is okay because…hey, they did it and somebody likes it…didn’t think so.

    Someone said Soulja Boy’s music wasn’t worth shit and GZA confirmed it because…Soulja boy is hot garbage…and if you like that shit for anything other than the trivial tripe it is then you are probably garbage too.

    In fact, I would bet that the vast majority of people that considers that shit as quality music hasn’t achieved anything of note in any field….other than banging underaged chicks that is.

    Now Aint a big fan of Soulja Boy.. But jus like hip hop needs GZA And The Wu.. We Need dese Soulja Boys, Hurricane Chris’ Etc. Dey appeal to the kids. Wu Is For the older generation of Hip Hop heads and the young soulja boy fans will eventually Discover These Other alternatives.

    I mean hell im 17 now.. But Im Into NaS, Game, Juvenile, Lupe, Jay, The Cool Kids etc. And i occasionally pull the soulja boy, Shop Boyz ish out and bumped it in the sound system. Hell Admit it you all have.. Not because hez a good lyricist or anything but because well.. The Bitches Love It.

    Back in the day i used to even listen to Nelly(No Homo). I wuldnt listen to his stuff now of corse tho cause hez an obvious Closet Gay Like Mase.

  • Huh

    I’m sorry, I have to disagree with u no one “needs” that Soulja/Shop Boy garbage. Listening to it just makes you dumber. That fuckin’ shuck and jive he does makes it even more ignorant. There is nothing wrong with hiphop dance music if its done right, like Young MC and Kool Moe Dee and Sir Mix A Lot did it back in the day. If u are an artist that is too wack to do that, the least u can do is just use the song to tell people the dance steps, like “Whoomp There It Is” and that other down south bass shit from the mid 90s. A lot of these younger artists don’t see the big picture, which is this: you are not going to last if you don’t have fans that are 17 and over. If u don’t have adults as fans, you’re just a pop artist. A kid’s musical taste always changes when they grow up. Do you think anyone is going back and pulling Bow Wow’s old albums for example out of their collection and bumpin’ it? No! That’s why he gets no respect. Unless you are a pop SUPERSTAR like MJ, Madonna, and Elton John (No Britney doesn’t count) nobody is going to care in 10 years. All Soulja Boy’s fans are going to act like they didn’t like the song like a bunch of lyin ass bitches. Personally I don’t care if you LIKE it, but the people that DEFEND the shit should kill themselves.

  • http://www.rizzleworld.blogspot.com allnice

    Soulja Boy is a fad. He won’t last the year because he can’t rap or put together a song that people will feel for more than a few months. Crank Dat is already dying down and he feels the heat. I think he shouldn’t have even responded to GZA tell you the truth. Just pull a Lil Wayne and step your rap game up.

    Why would GZA be jealous of Soulja Boy? His career is immaculate. Many rappers would love the solid fan base that Wu provides. I don’t know anybody, even young kids, that liked Soulja Boy enough to cop his album. He gets no respect at all. I like to laugh at that nigga and his funny dances though.

    Soulja Boy suffers from Lupe Fiasco syndrome. They both got on thinking they were killing it, but they only have one song that was actually worth shit. So when their rap fundamentals get called into question, they start revealing just how stupid they are.

    Rambling on about shit that doesn’t make any sense to anybody but you is only going to impress people for but so long until they get bored. Ask Ghostface Killah and Camron how their last albums did because they suffer from the same problem even after all these years in the game. You actually have to put in the work and practice. Just showing up ain’t good enough.

    90s rap lovers aren’t grumpy. 80s rap lovers aren’t grumpy. They just don’t like wack shit. T.I. isn’t wack and neither is Lil Wayne. Soulja Boy is fucking wack. He makes disco music. Sure, I think he is entertaining. I like to laugh at him like how I laugh at a clown. He is getting fucked out his dough believe me. The nigga can’t read a contract and he don’t understand publishing.

    If bitches can still get loose to B.I.G and Pac songs, then you can’t defend Soulja Boy’s and MIMS’ crap music. I just dubbed on a bitch to Electric Relaxation the other day at this lounge in Manhattan. Good music is timeless. No one listens to wack music. Who the fuck listens to MC Hammer and Vanilla Ice anymore? They don’t get any run except in the most fucked up places in the world. And that’s that.

    • NAWLEDGE

      Co sign everything you said expect the part about Lupe Fiasco. Now my question to you is ARE YOU SERIOUS?! You said:

      “They both got on thinking they were killing it, but they only have one song that was actually worth shit. So when their rap fundamentals get called into question, they start revealing just how stupid they are.”

      TRUE for Folja Toy. FALSE for Lupe Fiasco. Lu is a genious homie. “Food and Liquor” was a classic album with though provoking subject matter and profound lyricism. Songs like “Real”, “Daydreamin”, “Conflict Diamonds”, “American Terroist”, “Hustlaz Song”, and more that delve deep into the world of true poetry. Did you even LISTEN to “The Cool”? The way this man puts words and subject matter together, on a beat that dosent even fit it, and STILL make it sound tight is pure genius. This man has a song called “Gotta Eat”. Its sounds like he’s talking about hustlin, but the entire song is a metaphor for eating healthy. HOW DOES SOMEONE THINK OF THAT?! Now I might seem like a Lu stan, but I had just HAD to give my 2 cents on that one dawg.

      Solja Fag = Crack head who made up a dance and got lucky

      Lupe Fiasco = True genious and a soon to be legend.

    How you gonna compare a cat working at McDonalds that cant read the menu, and soulja boys obviously illiterate ass to a Mexican who can build a house, but cant speak English. Thats some real hate right there. Dont get me wrong, I think the comment is pretty funny, and I hope that funny is what you were going for with that, but at least those Mexicans who are building houses are putting something pure and good into this world and making a living, and not just trying to get over on people like soulja boy with his fake ass rap routine.

    Now on that subject, I dont hate, good for that punk little kid, im glad hes getting paid. And that being said, I will dance to those party songs in the club just as quickly as I would to some WU, Little Brother, Mos, Atmosphere. But you wouldnt catch me dead rolling to that shit outside the club, its just not for that. I prefer something with a little intellectuality in it. Artists with something to say with their 15 minutes, not just get people dancing, and girls getting loose.

    “12 years after the fact, legions of cracka-ass crackas (and also Bol) are still willing to shell out to see the GZA rip joints from Liquid Swords. Soulja Boy, meanwhile, knows good and well no one’s gonna give a shit about him once he’s that age.”

    the most important part of all.

    this is the first time I have ever totally agreed with you, Bol. Big up.

    This whole fucking country gets less intelligent by the day.

    The point is that we’re so fucking retarded we can’t tell the difference between someone with talent, and someone without it.

    WAKE THE FUCK UP PEOPLE.

    He’s not hating on someone thats making money. He’s hating on someone thats getting money with no fucking talent whatsoever. just because we’re not smart enought to understand good music anymore….

    and don’t bring up party music, becuase we’ve always had party music, it was just more intelligent than it is now.

    It starts with the attention span of our youth. There is none, so they look for a catchy beat with a simple ass hook. Music is art, and art is made to be listened to, and thought about, and interpreted by each of us.

    Good drop, but you can’t falt ‘soulja bitch’ he still needs to learn to respect his elders. He’s like the young man who just comes out of puperty and steps to his pops and gets knocked the fuck out…

  • truhiphop4ever

    I RUN THIS… do you even consider yourself a fan of hip-hop? Don’t you dare disresprect the pioneers that allowed Soulja Boy to sell the numbers he does today. Without a KRS or Big Daddy Kane or Run DMC, there would be no BIG or Pac, and without those two rap music as we know it never would have reached the mainstream. There’s no way a rap song could have ever become a ring tone without the impact that was made by the rappers in the 80′s and 90′s that brought hip-hop to the masses. I respect what Soulja Boy’s doing, but I RUN THIS you need to come correct before you state your opinions.

  • noname

    Why is the Wu veteran hating so much, because they are not the buzz today like they were back in the days, and why is the editor of this article hating as well, he is a kid plain and simple caking it up in the media. If it was your kid you wouldn’t be saying those things.

  • http://myspace.com/liquidiq2 thenumbertoo

    i think GZA is finally one of very few people that have had it up to his shoulder with new rappers, that try to pose as emcees.

    i think soulja boy has nothing on any rappers out there today. i don’t hate anyone. that’s little that i can say for his music. i see people in the club all the time bumpin his crud, and dancin to it, like it means something to them.

    i remember seeing people dancing to actually good music, but where have those days gone??

    i read the scoop on how he even got on!! he posted his song up on soundclick, myspace sites, etc, and renamed them “50 Cent”, “Britney Spears” and different popular artists out there, and when they clicked to download or to listen, they would get his music instead!

    he did that shit for weeks on end. that’s not even a come up, that’s fraud!!!

    i hate abbreviated remarks, but SOULJA BOY, “WTF”??

  • dre4life

    soulja boy should b talkin trash bout, say, britney spears rather than gza, not jus cuz dats his generation, but cuz he is a “pop artist,” not a rapper, in fact, why the Fack do we have stuff bout this guy on xxlmag.com? put dat guy on casmo or som

THIS YOUNG GUY IS MAKING THE SAME MISTAKE THAT OTHERS HAVE WITH THEIR 15 MINS OF FAME. COCKY, WASTEFUL, TALKATIVE. HOW MANY “SOULJAH BOYS” HAVE WE SEEN IN THE LAST 5,10 YEARS?

    SUN sounds like KING SUN. if it is, PEACE LORD!!

    THIS IS SAD. ANYONE IN THEIR RIGHT MIND WOULD NOT COMPARE “SOULJAH BOY” TO GZA!

    LIKE COME ON!!!! YOU CANNOT BE SERIOUS. ANY ARTIST IN THE GAME WOULD TELL YOU THEY WANT LONGEVITY. THIS YOUNG DUDE IS NOT GETTIN ALL THE BREAD. COLLIPARK IS THE MAN! SHORTY IS NOT OLD ENOUGH TO HANDLE IS OWN ACCOUNT. MOST OF YOU HAVE NEVER SEEN A CONTRACT TO KNOW WHAT REALLY GOES ON, BUT I KNOW BETTER. THERE’S A FORMULA FOR THIS:

    85% DON’T HAVE A CLUE
    10% TAKE IT FROM YOU(85%)
    5% NOT MESSING WITH YOU(85/10)

    SHORTY STILL CALLING HIMSELF “BOY”. CATZ BE ACTING LIKE THEY GETTING A CHECK CUT BY CO-SIGNING!!! THIS DUDE WILL NEVER BE IN HIP HOP HALL OF FAME OR A LEGEND CALLING FOR HIM TO SPIT.

AND SOUTH 19, THEY WERE GETTIN @ THE FAT BOYS FOR THAT NONSENSE THEY WERE PUTTING OUT.

    YOU YOUNGIN’S GOTTA REALIZE THAT YOU NEED TO KNOW FACTS BEFORE YOU RESPOND TO SOMETHING YOU REALLY HAVE NO INFORMATION ON. DO NOT QUIT YOUR DAY JOBS BECAUSE MOST OF YOU WILL NEVER HAVE A RAP CAREER. AND OTHERS THAT HAVE BEEN SUCCESSFUL OVER THE YEARS IN THE GAME FOR 5YRS AND BETTER HAVE EVERY RIGHT TO KEEP GOING. THEY DO SHOWS, PRODUCE, DROP VERSES, SELL PUBLISHING AND FEED THEIR FAMILIES. EVEN IF THEY ARE 30,40,50YRS OLD. WOULD IT BE RIGHT TO TELL YOUR MOM AND POP STOP WORKING CAUSE THEY ARE BEYOND 30? OVER THE HILL? AND I’M YOUNG TOO. YA’LL SOUND FOOLISH AND IT SHOWS…

    P.S. BEFORE YOU ALL START GETTING IN YOUR EMOTIONS I HAVE NO INTEREST IN BEING IN THE RAP GAME. I LOVE HIP HOP MUSIC OLD AND NEW. I HAVE BEEN IN THE STREETS, FROM THE PROJECTS OF BROOKLYN, SCHOOL OFF OF FINANCIAL AID, HAVE KIDS, BEEN SHOT, AND HERE TO SAY WE NEED MORE LUPE’S THAN “BOYS”. HOLD THAT. I WELCOME ALL IGNORANT COMMENTS
