NEGRO PLEASE: Kanye West Places Soulja Boy on “Nas Level”

[Editor's Note: "Blogger's Note" has been taken over by Ron Mexico until further notice.]

“Soulja boy is fresh ass hell and is actually the true meaning of what hip hop is sposed to be. He came from the hood, made his own beats, made up a new saying, new sound and a new dance with one song. He had all of America rapping this summer. If that ain’t Hip Hop then what is? A bunch of wannabe keep it real rappers that ain’t even relevant, recycling samples trying to act like it’s 96 again and all they do is hate on new shit? Niggas always talk about the golden age but for a 13 year old kid, this is the golden age!!! That song was so dope cause everything he said had a hidden meaning… that’s Nas level shit… he just put it over some steel drums which is also some Nas shit if you had the 2nd album cassette with the bonus track “Silent Murder” on it… Ain’t no fuckin’ rules to this shit and that’s what real hip hop is to me.”Kanye West, his blog

What the fuck is up with all the outlandish claims in the hip-hop universe this month? Are they finally putting something in the Hennessey? First Puffy calls Tha Carter III another “Ready to Die,” now this? Wow.

I tell you, shit like this here is exactly why you can’t take any Kanye commentary seriously. He’s officially on Martin Lawrence watch. Homie might be “dehydrated.”

Grammatical errors aside, I’m totally down with everything up until “that’s some Nas level shit.”

There ain’t a motheruckin thing “Nas level” about Soulja Boy Tellem. Nas could have been born and raised in Lazy Town and still wouldn’t be half the coon Soulja Boy is.

Before I get on my ‘96 nigga horse, I’ll say again, we live in an entirely different era from that of Nas’ glory days, let alone Ice-T’s. I don’t have to be thrilled with the notion, but I understand that today is Soulja’s. (–Or that he’s on the clock for another banger, at least.) This is not the problem. I don’t mind that Kanye’s co-signing Soulja Boy (AKA “The True Meaning”). Even “Hater of the Year” sided with the showering monkey to an extent.

Kanye is so delusional about how far superior he is to his contemporaries that Nas and Soulja Boy may actually appear to be on the same level in his warped-ass, neon Care Bear worldview.

Negro, please.

Maybe by “Nas level” he’s referring to that dark age between I Am and Stillmatic that every fan of Escobar Season represses like prison memories. With even that said, Soulja Boy mumbling through “Crank Dat” still doesn’t match the degree of misguided brainpower behind “Oochie Wally,” “Big Girl” or “You Owe Me.”

Ah, “40 acres to blacks…” Wowsers.

If “Nas level” indicates one who can complete a double entendre of any kind, then let’s open the fuckin floodgates. In fact, let’s put the merengueros and bachateros on “Nas level” too. When they’re talking about eating an orange, they mean so much more.

When I first heard “La Vaca,” it was like hearing “The World Is Yours” all over again.

Ay, diablo. Cocolo sucio. (Our mantra <en SAP>)

Here ‘Ye stands complaining about “’96 niggas,” yet he takes the time to yoke Soulja Boy with the ’96 nigga to end all ’96 niggas.

Hmmm. That sounds like a brand of schnapps. ’96 Niggas. 99 Bananas. I’m gonna go ahead and get that marketing plan ready for the people. Maybe then I can get me some of this new money and get all “Nas-level.”

It’s cool to name your product “Nigger” these days, right?

Questions? Comments? Requests? Pre-order a bottle of “’96 Niggas.” ron@ronmexicocity.com

P.S.: Nas also utilizes steel drums on “Money Is My Bitch.” However, most sane folk associate steel drums with the West Indies… not a Nas record or two.

P.S.S.: Clipse feat. Jadakiss, Styles P. & Roscoe P. Coldchain“I’m Not You” > Any Nas steel drum usage?

    what about PIMP and Money’s My Bitch…
    Also steel drums come from TRINIDAD not africa or any place else

    • http://xxlmag.com Ron Mexico

      wow. you caught “Africa” in the P.S. but not “Money Is My Bitch?”

      i only mentioned africa because the internation steel drum festival is held there. i know they started in trinidad, but now the drums have cultural association with other parts of the world.

      that includes me likkle island, jamaica.

      Steel drums better known as Steelpans did originate in Trinidad and Tobago but in case you did not know most of the islands inhabitants are of African descent!

  • kell

    do u really care what a dude who dresses like Michael Jackson circa 88 thinks about hip hop? have u heard, Graduation…wack weirdo rap

    • Sonic

      Yeah, Kanye makes some new shit but he’s feelin himself WAAAAAY to much. BTW, I am a fan and did cop graduation but he is definitely not the authority on hip hop

  • Iso

    Think you thought to much into those few sentences.

    You ranted about it like he said SB is as good as Nas.

    All he simply said was that that particular song had hidden meanings to it similar to the way Nas does his shit.

    But I geuss it is your job to over analyze/ critisize others…

    • NAWLEDGE

      Iso:

      Even saying that is blasphamy!! There is NOTHING in Crank Dat that has a hiddent message!! Solja Faggot tell ‘em is an idiot who failed the 9th grade twice, made up a stupid dance, made a garbage 3 note looped beat, and got a deal.

      NO HARD WORK, NO LYRICS, NO HIDDEN MESSAGES, NO CONCEPTS, NO STORYTELLING, NO PUNCHLINES, NOTHING!!

      So what the fuck is Kanye talking about when he says its Hiphop to the fullest?? Bullshit!!

      • Dr. jenius

        Yo fuck solja faggot ass tell em there is no hidden messages in is dumb ass song crank that. I respect kanye but u just got mixed up or something. to say that this faggot is on nas level is just blasphemy to say. And when he said that faggot boy got people rapping that summer but he didn’t he had America dancing and now little kids think that that is hip hop but that is just some pop shit faggot boy if u want to make money just go to pop and leave hip hop alone.

        FAGGOT BOY U NEEDE TO FUCKIN LEAVE HIP HOP U CANT FUCKIN RAP JUST BECAUSE KANYE GOT UR BACK DONT MEAN THAT PEOPLE WILL NOW FUCKIN EAT A DICK OR BETTER YET EAT UR FAGGOTS FEIGNEDS DICK OK

    I defended Soulja boy off the top too, but kayne is on some stupid shit. How the fuck you ever compare dude to Nas???? Hidden messages?? What the fuck is Ye smoking?

  • me

    When these older cats in the game are still relevant they suck off anything new to make them appear young and hip, Diddy pushing 40 and Kanye in his 30s so they pretend to like what ‘tha kids’ like so they can appear hip and cool….by the way Didy and Kanye are both queers so expect more drivel spewing from there cock receivers…no homo

  • http://gooddoctorzeus.blogspot.com DocZeus

    Dear Kanye,

    I know you aren’t the world’s greatest lyricist despite what you might think but please do not confuse the concept of metaphor with a double entendre. “Sleep is the cousin of death” is a metaphor. “Superman that hoe” is a double entendre. Actually, I’m not sure it really qualifies as that. I’m actually pretty sure that’s just a regular old euphemism. Now we can return to your regularly scheduled program.

    Sincerely,

    The Good Doctor Zeus

    Allow me to try to break this down. What is happening is Ye is trying to hard to say that soldier boy is hiphop and he is comparing to very different types of entertainers(I say entertainers because to use the word artist would be giving them too much). Nas is a lryicist and he uses 5 percent speak which is loaded with hidden meaning his style borrowed from 5% knowledging thus you get the hidden meanings.

    Soulja Boy is a dance music maker whether you love it or not. His meanings are thinly vailed and his methods are commonly used in tongue an cheek pop tunes for instance “all I wanna do is run my zum zum zum in a boom boom”(nullus) from rump shaker. So soulja boy is more like rex in a effect,12 gauage who did Donkey but, The Dogs etc …. even though the dogs had some messages and rex was totally R&B for the most part or rap and bullshit as I like to call it.

    Here is a better comparison:

    Nas=Rakim
    Soulja Boy=12 Gauge or 2 hype brothers and a dog do you remember do do brown

    Do the knowledge and stay off rappers dicks be men about your shit and learn to critic without hate man.

  • Hell Nah

    Wow! HipHop still dying from niggas sayin dumb shit like this! I love Kanye music but he continues to say dumb ass shit in the public! Don’t ever compare Nas to Souja Boy again! If I was Nas I would put Kanye in CHECK!!! And Kanye talking about this aint 96 no more than stop using 96 ass slang like that Souja Boy shit is fresh! Who still uses fresh?

  • c b w

    The only thing I commend Soulja Boy for is finding a way to keep him and his nappy ass friends off of the streets and incarceration (for the moment). He made a song turned it into money, where if he is smart he won’t have to do another fucking thing in his life. If not….oh well.

    Ice-T should just shut the fuck up and go bang his wife or put out a new album with DJ G.L.O.V.E

  • Gucci JaZe

    jus be happy 4 the kid
    are we all really talkn about soulja boy this much???

  • Pierzy

    Damn Kanye… maybe your mom off’d herself because she heard you talking crazy like that. I guess Rick Ross is “on some B.I.G. shit”?

  • http://www.xxlmag.com Benicio Del Thoro

    Ronnie Mex, what’s good

    First off ill say that Ye’ gets carried away sometimes. More that sometimes, a lot of the time. I think what he meant that right now, soulja boy is doing big things on a nas level meaning his shit is a breath of fresh air sort of like everything nas does is a breath of fresh air. Also lately nas has been actually putting music out that’s making what kanye said half true. Only half tho. Now if I’m in the club, and I’m loopy, and that song comes on or snap and roll come on then I’m gonna hit the floor. Those dances are fun and I think that people should just admit that. Its not this deep.

    That being said, I liken this situation to the time John Lennon and Paul had came off an acid trip and said the beatles were more popular than jesus. Now at that time the beatles could do no wrong, and only non beatles fans got pissed off at that.

    Also there’s a huge difference between sb and hurricane chris and all the other crank dat imitations. Ya ice could have fell back and had coco count his money, but he’s feeling like his child is being taken away and in a sense it is. But not by these kids who just want to live and make money. Also keep in mind all that shit ice said was the same things niggas in new york said about him when he first dropped his shit.

    Viva Mexico!
    Viva el revolucion!

    “That song was so dope cause everything he said had a hidden meaning… that’s Nas level shit”. Oh wow, “Superman dat ho”. “Crack dat soldier boy”. Wow that’s some deep shit dawg. That’s like some genius poetry right there. I had to listen to the song like three times to get it.

    Nas GOAT 15 years and still relevant fuck outta here Kanye, I like your music please. I can see you stickin your neck out for Jeezy before, dude Jeezy is okay, but your goin against sanity at this point. I think you have to go younger than 13 to get the dudes Soulja Girls fanbase, like my 9 year old lil bro be bumpin that shit in between Sponge Bob episodes b. Fuck it 96 was pretty god damn golden, but I aint stuck in the past. Im bumpin the Carter 3. I’m a be bumpin Games LAX. Crooked I 52 week shit. Always cop the new Jigga. Nothin but Royce 5’9, MIC, Dirty Glove Entertainment, Juan, K Doe in my changer. This dude Soulja Girl is just plain wack.

    • Nad

      wot da fuck is happenin 2 hip-hop how can soulja boy dare 2 question Ice-T’s judgemet nigga im 15 and i hate soulja boy that nigga should eat a dick. Kanye i lost respect for him as soon as he turned pop, people so graduation is a classic its garbage xzibits dropped betta albums dan dat. Second how da fuck can soulja boy be on nas level u can’t even compare 2nd childhood 2 crank dat kanye is a sell out and should shut his mouth and soulja boy shuld eat a dick nd with dat im out.
      p.s. HIP HOP IS DEAD

    I argue this all the time, and YES, Kanye is on point! You may not like SB’s shit but you gotta respect it (RIP ‘Pac). You gotta respect his hustle and his courage to be original. Funny thing that I noticed with Hip Hop is that we complain about certain aspects lacking from the game and then when somebody utalizes all the missing aspects successfully we hate on em like its no tomorrow. FTR I dont fuck wit SB either but I cant hate on a 17 year old kid who started making beats at home, got the local schools to bump his shit and then launched his brand. Thats mutha fuckin HIP HOP 202 bitches.

    At first I was like damn Ye thats retarded but he just tapped into the whole Club V. No Club rap. To be honest if you wanna say the first rap was ass shaking music so anything other than that is “out of the norm”, the first rap wasn’t on some deep shit.

    wow….I mean I agree that hip-hop is about expressing urself no matter what….ppl hated on graduation sayin it aint gip-gop and he aint rappin but I liked it….with that being said tho, wat the fuck was he on when he said “nas level”….in the words of Ice-T….Soulja boy is such garbage lol

    I’m not a Soulja Boy Tellum fan.

    I don’t ever expect to buy an album or ringtone of his.

    He’s definitely not going to be mentioned as a G.O.A.T. in the future for the type of music he creates.

    But let’s stop hating. He did create his own lane. And people can’t stand to see success anymore. And it sucks. If he gets millions of adolescents and teens to dig him, the why the fuck not? I’m not in that category anymore, so I can’t claim to understand it.

    But the youth always rebel. They like stupid shit, and I used to like stupid shit too. So it’s only right that they can support their own. Like us older heads support our own.

    • Detroit P

      Hitler also:

      created his own lane
      was successful
      got millions of people to follow him

      I guess the Jews were just Hatin too

      All that let us old heads have this and let the young kids have that is the type of attitude that will have HipHop going the way of Disco in 15 years

      Im 19 and SouljaBoy is wack, he made his money and got his little fame, now his young fickle A.D.D. fans will get bored with him sooner or later and he won’t even be mentioned anymore, until the next fly by night rapper comes out and people compare him to Soulja Boy, just like they compare Soulja Boy to mC Hammer and Vanilla Ice…so Kanye west should think before he speaks next time…cus sometimes he makes himself look foolish

  • Billy Escobar

    I disagree with Kanye. Matter of fact is, I ain’t hating on Soulja Boy, it’s music but just don’t call his music ‘hip-hop’, maybe put his songs under another genre, like lets say hop-pop? Maybe even pop-rap.

  • sam

    HE BETTER BE JOKING. WOW SOULJA BOY ISNT HIP HOP. ITS NOT REALLY THAT HARD TO MAKE YOUR OWN BEATS, IS HE FOR REAL? WOW

  • Jack

    i don’t think he meant soulja boy is on nas’s level as far as rapping just as far as the hidden meanings but it was a bad comparisons since a lot of things rappers say have hidden meanings thats not something special that soulja boy started but soulja boy should still be respected for coming from a different angle and blowin up with his own style and getting everyone to do his dance.

  • Jack

    50 cent also cosigned soulja boy and now kanye west thats two power houses on his side.

  • Sway-z

    The bottomline is Ye is paid and don’t want to seem like a hater. If that nigga sold 1500 copies of Graduation, trust, he’d be hating. It’s the same shit with Jay doing songs with Wayne, he’s well off and don’t wanna seem like he’s shitting on him, even though he knows Wayne ain’t no heir to no damn throne…

  • atarikoolkid

    yall do not know wat ur talkin about at all. I understand why everybody is whining n shyte cus dont get me wrong everybody knows NaS is one of the greatest. but kanye did not say that soulja boy is as good as nas. hes just tryn to say the shit hes doin is on a VERY HIGH LEVEL like nas did comin up.

    sam says:

    HE BETTER BE JOKING. WOW SOULJA BOY ISNT HIP HOP. ITS NOT REALLY THAT HARD TO MAKE YOUR OWN BEATS, IS HE FOR REAL? WOW

    are you serious sam?? if its not that hard to make ur own beats lets see you create a song that has everybody in the fuckin country singin and dancin along with. this nigga made this song when he was 15 and he made a fuckin song and promoted it through myspace and now everybody in hip hop knows who he is

  • Styalz

    Wow, honestly.. Kanye was probably jokin’ about this shit because if he really is gonna say Soulja boy is on some Nas shit, you’re telling me Bubba Sparxx can be a Jay-Z? No not even..

    But yeah, like it was stated before.. can’t take what Kanye says seriously because I don’t think someone who got talent like him can make such a horrible comparison.. Maybe he was just saying this to start some controversy.

    The credit Soulja boy gets is the dance but before Soulja boy, you already know finger snappin’ music from the south, you had Yung Joc with his motorcycle movement goin’ on. So you’re tellin me Kanye didn’t see that there are a bunch of other niggas who can make some shit up and by chance get lucky because it becomes a hit?

    LET’S BE REAL. Good joke Kanye but April fools was 2 months ago.

  • Anti-Mainstream

    WTF kind of drugs is this bitch nigga kanye on? First he said Mase was the greatest rapper of all time a couple years ago,(WRONG-Krs One is), and now he’s saying soulja boy is Hip Hop. Soulja Boy is fuckin garbage, and I co-sign with Ice-T about soulja boy being the destruction of Hip Hop. All I know is these chart topping POP stars that are supposed to be Hip Hop are running this culture into the ground and have been since Biggie’s death!

    Since when is an opinion, an authority on hip hop? Although I agree that Nas and Soulja Boy aint even in the same league, Ye is just stating an opinion….and surprise, surprise everyone gets all in a huff about it.
    10-15 years down the road, Soulja Boy might be still working hard and putting out some really ill shit. As I remember, Nas had some early haters as well…just like all ya’ll are doing right now. Like I said, I agree that Nas and SB dont belong in the same category…but get over it people…stop crying about what others think and start thinking for yourselves. =D

  • gkid12345

    You’ll see a ton of the successful but garbage rappers are going to side with whack ass soulja boy. Kanye knows the only way he will be getting props is if music and hip hop is in the rut that its in. He would die if 96′ came back because then he would be back to the gay weird guy. Fuck kanye and anyone else who sides with soulja boy. I wish 96′ came back, then all this shit where niggas can be gay like wayne kissing men, kanye period, soulja boy humping his friends would be destroyed.

  • lostgyrl

    I have to agree with Kanye!!! And for anyone who feels a certain type of way, deal with it!! Hip Hop is like the universe it will never die only out live us all!!!

  • Lostgyrl

    By me saying I agree with Kanye, I co-sign Hip Hop being a form of expression. Alot of rappers rhyme about things that have a major effect on teenagers. They believe the hype! I’ve been around for a long time and today’s music I can barely listen to. For Soulja Boy not knowing who the GZA was is understandable because he’s young but at the same time he should respect those who came before him and made it possible for him to spit his bubblegum rap, because that’s what it is!! The girls love it and it sales, point blank.

    Nas is a Icon!!!! In this day and age with all the beef that goes around and around I salute any Artist who compliments the next especially when it’s due.

    In a nutshell respect the classics!!! And except change!!!

    damn, you really know how to overthink something……
    how is soulja boy not hip hop when hip hop artists have been making dance music since it began? If Soulja Boy aint hip hop, i guess Digital Underground & Uncle Luke arent either.

  • bigg deuce

    kanye fa real trippin on this one soulja fag is trash

  • Real Talk

    I swear I read somewhere up there that Soldier Boy is filling in what’s missing in hiphop. LOL Are you serious? Also I can’t believe somebody is payin respect to Pac, while givin props to Soldier Boys music. Am I livin in the God damn twilight zone?

    Jee wiz guys, stop pointing out that Soldier Boy can’t rap. That may be your opinion, but when you do that, you are actually hating on him because he is making super wicked amounts of money and you should be proud of somebody being crazy successful. We should all be sensitive to his feelings and play nice and share and hold hands and skip in the park you freakin gosh darn haters!

    Yes, the first form of hiphop was party music. The DJ would have an Emcee and the Emcee would spit RAPS to the crowd to livin up the party. The first record was Sugar Hill Gang’s “RAPPERS Delight”. In that song the Sugar Hill Gang RAPPED. Digital Underground RAPPED. Luke and 2 Live Crew RAPPED. One the main four original elements of hiphop was RAPPING. Does anyone like RAP music anymore? In case you didn’t know, there’s a beat in the background right? Follow me still? And than there’s a guy called a RAPPER and he RAPS. A RAP is the “rhythmic spoken delivery of RHYMES and WORD PLAY”. Nice and slow: Soulja Boy does not rap. Dr Seuss raps better than Soulja Boy. Occasionally he actually tries to rap in his songs, but he is very bad at it. His songs are 5 minute hooks. If you do not agree with these very simple concepts, than YOU are the hater. You obviously hate good rap music, and hate when people point out wack so called rappers.

    Kanye must have a team of ghost writers or somethin cuz he raps tight but obviously can’t tell what makes a dope rapper.

    • NAWLEDGE

      CO-FUCKIN-SIGN!!!!!

      I’ve been saying this from the beggining!!

      NOTHING is wrong with making dance music and being you. But at least KNOW HOW TO RAP!!!

      Will Smith RAPPED
      2 Live Crew RAPPED
      Digital Underground RAPPED

      They acutally had something to SAY!! We need to stop babying these damn artists. If something SUCKS BALLS, IT SUCKS BALLS!!!!

      Real Talk, you’re my new best friend (no homo).

  • TimeSquare

    Kanye’s right alot of people especially you old ass folk dont even know what the song Superman dat ho is about. And if I was Soulja Boi and I cause all this confusion off of one song I would keep doin my thing

  • 11KAP

    The way people keep comparing mediocre rappers to the great rappers will only make it harder for the youth to remember who is really the best in the future, and everyone will be quicker to forget, just like the rest of black history. this shit happens all the time. That’s why niggas’ so stupid now. They can’t even remember what’s real and what’s fake. Niggas’ always lyin’ n shit. Shit is fuckin’ annoying. Kanye and P.diddy got shit way out of context. They must be jackin’ off too much advocating these misconceptions of reality. Niggas need a soundcheck 1,2,1,2. Get your mind right, nigga.

  • Dr. jenius

    Yo fuck solja faggot ass tell em there is no hidden messages in is dumb ass song crank that. I respect kanye but u just got mixed up or something. to say that this faggot is on nas level is just blasphemy to say. And when he said that faggot boy got people rapping that summer but he didn’t he had America dancing and now little kids think that that is hip hop but that is just some pop shit faggot boy if u want to make money just go to pop and leave hip hop alone.

    Look everybody here is the problem. Kids 13-18 love soljaboy’s stuff because nowadays kids don’t to much care about lyrics they just want to hear a nice beat, also they are concerned about showing off the new dance at high school dances. Im 27 years old. I grew up listening 2 wu-tang,nwa,ice cube, nas, snoop, bone thugs, biggie, pac, even no limit rappers, etc, at the time i was in high school. Rappers had 2 now how to rap (even Master P i some knew niggas that thought he didn’t rap about shit at time), or shit wasn’t getting bumped by niggas at my school or anywhere in america period. If Soljaboy or anyone else came out with the shit in the 90′s that stuff wouldn’t get any radio play at all nor would they play them videos on BET or MTV. We all just got to get over the fact this is a new generation of hip hop fans. niggas like webbie, soljaboy, flo-rida, VIC(that dumb get silly song) benefit from this new young generation of hip hop fans. its a little sad but can’t knock there hustle.

    There is a hidden message in Crack Dat. When you play it backwards, you can hear a evil voice saying “Kill yourself for listenin to this bullshit. This shit is wack as fuck”.

    Old folks? Im 22 years young, the fuck? This aint know old and young shit, this is people that grew up on real hiphop versus people that grew up on Lil Bow Wow and B2K records.

  • 239allday

    cosign real talk. Nigga I’m 20 yars old. And like I’ve said plenty of times Mr. Mexico, Kanye is beyond gay. And once again it was meant to rhyme.

    Florida bitch whats good though?

  • HipHopArice

    Florida is gay i live in Detroit where real hard niggas be. you southern niggas kill me act so hood making songs about how hood y’all is in reality more then have y’all niggas scared to be y’all self, look if Kayne so stupid listen to all the nigga’s CD’S and tell me he aint smart….Im 20 too….and u so stupid you spelled years wrong.

  • 239allday

    Excuse me if I mispelled the word years I was typing to fast. And I dont think that a person’s origin completely determines how hard he is or how pussy he is. And with that said, You can’t fuck with these ZOES down here in Florida, get eaten alive fuck nigga. Eat my whole entire dick and balls.

    239, 509 all day muhfucka!!!

  • kashrulz

    Kanye has a point. Originally, Hip Hop was all about partying and having fun. It did evolve into a more conscious-level rap, true…but it’s still about being positive, fun, and fresh.

    In fact, I think everybody hates the south. Why? I know why, cuz it’s not East Coast rap. We hated the West at first cuz we thought it wasn’t hip hop wit all the violence. West still ain’t respected enough in my opinion..Now it’s the South cuz of the finger snappin and dance joints.

    If it’s not East Coast, it’s not Hip Hop.

    what else could you say

  • Real Live Shit

  • drama

    soulja boy is not hip hop!!!!
    im not a hater jus hear me out.
    the arguement is that soulja boy brings fresh positive music to the youth rite? WRONG
    he has several graphic disturbing buffonery “hits”..he cusses an everything u want ya kids singing “she got a donk”? or “throw some d’s on my report card”?
    this nigga is NOT hip hop hip hop is a pay check 2 him not a culture. HE THINKS JAY FUCKIN Z IS A OLD SKOO RAPPER!!! WTFF??? no this nigga need 2 b strapped t a chair and forced 2 listen 2 every single classic album ever and then contrast his bubble gum”lyrics” kanye got some money at dis stament no doubt

  • TUNED2IT

    Kanye needs a smooth criminal ass whoopin’ an Poop diddy needs to have his eye lids cut off an be fed sleeping pills cuz that was some bull ish about sucky boy an wackeezy is like NAS AN B.I.G. Pump ur brakes!

  • sam

    soulja boy will NEVER be hip hop. i mean i can agree maybe people making comments about hip hop being dead should do something about it. BUT i agree that hip hop is not what it COULD be, but im not gonna jump in obviously and try to make it better. like half of the rappers out there, i dont have anything serious to rap about. i mean its all fabricated shit, not about the music. its about the money.

    kanye wouldn’t be considered as hip hop either, but i’ll say he is ON A DIFFERENT LEVEL. one hes full of himself as hell and i dont even wanna hear him complain about that. but soulja boy its the sameeeeeeeeeeeee thing over and over. putting crank dat in all the songs, get a fuckin new idea.

    NAS is real shit, so his Talib Kweli, The Roots, Immortal Technique, etc. Insane Clown Posse talks about more serious shit than soulja boy does… COME ON
