NEGRO PLEASE: Soulja Boy & Ice-T Share Dick Sandwich

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

It looks like we’ve got ourselves a twin bill today.

“Fuck Soulja Boy. Eat a dick. Nigga single-handedly killed hip-hop. We came all the way from Rakim. We came all the way from Das EFX. We came all the way from motherfuckers flowing like Big Daddy Kane and Ice Cube, and you come with that ‘Superman’ shit? That shit is garbage.” –Ice-T, DJ Cisco’s Urban Legend mixtape.

Entrenched in a war of words, coonified newcomer Soulja Boy Tellem and greasy mulatto pimp fossil, Ice-T end up going half on a dick sandwich.

True to traditional yellow gangsta form, the Iceman goes in on the one-hit wonder. I’m not sold on the notion that Soulja Boy has become the target of affection simply because he’s young. I think Ice is going after Soulja Boy because the kid is ass-ignorant, yet served as the icon of our genre for all of 2007. In the public eye, if hip-hop had an NBA-style silhouette logo, that shit would have been doing the Superman dance last year.

Not that any of this is Soulja Boy’s fault (save for the ass-ignorance), I’m sure Ice would rather someone more fitting (possibly sporting a “sherm perm”) portray hip-hop’s Jerry West. As a new Ice-T rap album looms, his crusade against showering chimps and Patrice Rushen beads proves timely bitchmade.

[Blogger’s Note: That’s not a "sherm perm." Mulattos just come out of the oven that way sometimes.]

The difference today is that the quarrel takes place in an era that is no longer the Cop Killer’s. Soulja Boy’s right. Ice-T is “old as fuck” and niggas don’t really want to hear him rap. I’d be cautiously interested in a new Body Count album, but I’m not looking for the next “6 In The Morning” from dude. I’m perfectly content with his place in the game, which no longer entails him standing in front of a microphone.

At the same time I understand that old “Crank Dat” shit ain’t for me. I might do the dance in private on check day, but I can’t fuck with this walking advertisement for watermelon-flavored condoms. Based on what comes out of his mouth, he’s nothing more than a 17 year-old oil slick in a monkey hoodie. That being said, there’s plenty of shit I listened to when I was 14 that my mother would have been well out of place to judge. She was 23 at the time, so I totally dig what that’s about. It’s little homie’s time. He makes dance music. Blah, blah, blah.

[Click here to watch Soulja Boy's response]

Unfazed by the hardcore rap pioneer’s lambast, Soulja Boy’s perpetual toothy grin represents the current generation’s disenchantment with the Negro star of yesteryear. While the Doja Twins in the back chuckled he should have just looked into the camera and said “Yaaaaaah, bitch! Yaaaaaah!” Why should he step outside of his comfort zone and try to carry on an intelligent discussion? Instead, Mr. Boy sticks to the bullet points placed in front of him. (Oh, yeah. He was reading off the screen like whoa.)

For a youngster lacking in the reverence-for-classic-hip-hop department, the freestyled bits in-between the bullets are quite hilarious at times. “Fuck Tha Police” is an N.W.A. track though, Soulja.

For those of you who don’t know any better, the “at least I’m getting paid” defense doesn’t absolve one of coonery. I was actually pulling for the kid a little bit until he lost me there. Actually, he lost me at “I got this new daynce for y’all called the Soulja Boy…”

As much as I resent his existence, Soulja Boy didn’t single-handedly kill this hip-hop shit. While he may be an incorrigible buffoon and far from a viable solution, he’s also far from the problem. He’s the byproduct of mentholated cigarettes and prenatal Thunderbird. Like he said himself, he’s just a kid with a job.

He also said “last time I heard of this nigga was in Superhead[’s] book.” I found that particularly funny. Soulja Boy reading a book? Ha.

Soulja Boy’s failure to cite Ice-T’s portrayal of Det. Scotty Appleton in 1991 urban crime drama New Jack City further accentuates the generational disparity involved. For what many perceive to be a substantial contradiction, Ice-T had long since endured the same Law & Order scrutiny for his “New Jack” role when Souja Boy was shitting in the smallest Pampers a WIC check could buy. That’s why the SVU crack was the only banana available for him to throw.

Speaking of mass media impression, despite recent success Soulja Boy should know that he and Ice-T’s positions in life are pretty fuckin’ far from congruent. That’s not to say he couldn’t get to Ice’s level at some point. I bet he could play Flavor Flav’s son on Under One Roof right now if he wanted.

Negroes, please.

Help me help you, niggas… and yellow niggas.

Mr. Boy should never have done that monkey dance with the monkey clothes on. He also shouldn’t publicly show praise for Wal-Mart giving niggas a place to work. Ice-T should never have brought his neck down for Soulja Boy to take hacks at. There are better ways to promote your LP.

Fuck it. Throw some change our way and see if your mug all over XXLmag.com before your release date doesn’t do better for you in the public eye than saying all that reckless, desperate shit to a bouncing crack baby.

Consensus: Dick sandwiches for all. Nobody wins.

      i’ll give soulja that. he seems pretty genuine at all times.

      funny how it’s hard to discern when a nigga’s “being real” or “just stupid.”

      funnier still is how often it’s both.

    dude, u bite. Really. I have NEVER been a fan of S.B’s music, I do, however, RESPECT THE GAME. Soulja Boy is not the 1 who created this madness, he is only following in others footsteps, AND CAPITOLIZING; FEEDING HIS FAMILY, the same way u are. He was merely being a kid, exploring his creativity (which I applaud as opposed to selling drugs or resulting in negative activity, as you should) and people of all race, age and status hopped on for the ride.. Jayz said it best.. people lie, but NUMBERS DONT.

    The question at hand is why are you all not getting at the (GROWN ASS MAN) man who actually SIGNED him? No1 is gettin at the man behind the machine, just takin shots at the kid? How about whos buyin it? Im sure sure u added a few hits to his youtube count, and I BEG you to differ (thus, we wouldnt even be having this discussion, ryt?;) .. Or how about the previous artists who lowered the standard and made this type of music acceptable?

    Maybe its not hip hop, but the last time I checked, music (along with creative writing) was an ART. That entitles freedom of PERSONAL expression, which also makes it possible for you to rant your nonsense and profit? oh, ok.

    Peace, King

      It seems to me that whoever signed SB to a record deal only did so to further propagate ignorance amongst the youth who are most apt to listen to that garbage. Yes he was creative and made his little dance and all that. And he did make his song and beats but just because he did that doesnt make him worthy of respect. If you hold things such as ignorance and disrespect for your elders in high esteem then by all means go ahead cheer for the little guy just remember the next time you try to discipline your child and they look at you in the face and yell “Yaaaahhhhh” then know that you helped and promoted that stupid shit. My son doesnt listn to that dumb shit. SB has a song talking about his shitty grades and school like thats cool. I wonder why people dont take having an education seriously and end up struggling the rest of their lives because when they were young and were told to stay in school and make something of themselves they were to busy f*cking off. SB is responsible for the further corruption and degradation of a young generation of people who will one day be in charge and wont know shit right to do. Congrats and Cheers. Right?

    These niggas are actually agreeing with mexico, why because he’s the blogger. Mexico, this blog was very gay because you were basically holding soulja boys dick and saying you understand where he comes from. I’m 3 years older than that crackbaby soulja and yall reason forwhy we can’t hate is because he 17. When’s the legal age to hate, 18. I know you got a copy of that nigga album. Remember that one movie where all those white dudes were hunting Ice-t in the woods, we need a sequel starring ron mexico and soulja boy.

      surviving the game.

      i live that shit for real.

  • DETROIT

    I don’t know how to feel about this! First, let me start by saying this, YOU ARE ABSOLUTELY RIGHT MR. MEXICO ABOUT BOTH OF THEM TAKIN L’s. But if i had to side with someone on this, I’d actually have to side with soulja boy. I grew up on Ice-T so i know dude is super-official. “The Tower”, “Mind over Matter”, “High Roller”, “OG”, “COLORS”, i don’t think people reallize just how OFFICIAL Ice-T is, He’s way more of a legend than someone like, say, easy-e. Not to mention he’s the guy that made the term “OG” nationwide. That being said, “eat a dick” is some disrespectful shit to say to someone. once someone says that, it’s a problem, flat out. I grew up hard also, so i know that 99% of the broke ass ghetto kids in america woulda made “superman” if they knew it would make them rich. It’s better than selling crack….isn’t it? In the hood it’s all about a come up, and dude came up. people sell crack to their friends’ moms and dads in the hood…..so dude mad a superman song, It’s get it how you live out here. BUT, i don’t think he understands who Ice-T is, i think wilkepedia has him confused. I suggest soulja boy look up Ice-T’s video for “the tower”, and watch it real good. And once he’s done, he should make another video telling Ice-t he’s sorry for the disrespect. Because something is telling me, that even at 50, ice-t ain’t the dude to be playin wit! HE’S NOT FROM THE FAKE BEEF ERA!

    You’ve officially dropped the illest blog this year so far with an event that actually isn’t even that interesting. what do they say on myspace? oh yeah! two Kudos.

  • T

    I think Ice-T is wrong, and I came from the era when Ice was the shit.
    I remember my parents not liking Parliament back in the day, and now they’re icons. “Aqua Boogie” is a stupid song, and so is “Atomic Dog”, and “Flash Light” but put those cuts on at party– muthafuckas will GET UP on the floor!
    There has always been silly music. “Monster Mash”, “The Twist”– and remember “Buffalo Girls” from the 80s, or even “The Humpty Dance”? All of those are silly– but they were JAMS.
    All Soulja Boy did was make a song that the whole world danced to. SO WHAT if it wasn’t super lyrical or political, and his music has a place just like KRS, Public Enemy, or Chubby Checker.
    I respect Ice T, but he’s wrong on this one. Leave the kids alone.

  • Jonas Datah B

    Prior to this I really was not a fan of the ‘Boy named SoulJa’ After today that has changed. He brings a valid point to light, and there’s nothing childish about his response to Ice T. Controversy , now a days creates more revenue to all forms of media than most people know, and it also hurts a culture in ways very few can count. Let’s be real, those who came before did pave the ways and set the tone, that many of inspiring artist aspire to live up to, and even go beyond. Very few people educate and model for young black men and so they are left with whatever they can find which usually is on TV, radio, and billboards. And the options are slim, not a lot of our people think getting a a degree is “cool” vs. a record deal, and the justification is clear. As Soulja, puts it, people are trying to survive. Say what you will but he is doing, or has done, what a man should do when your family, community and so forth is in need, provide. Judge the act, but understand the person, in context ( I mean where they come from) Hip-Hop has help a lot of individuals break into mainstream and “more acceptable” popular culture. NOT GOING BACK, and LOOKING DOWN ON OTHERS is the problem, just think if Ice-T made it a point to work with this young man and get him a spot on Law and Order, pushed for episodes that focused on the solution of those in the ‘ghetto’ (as Soulja puts it) maybe this would be the beginning of a new and better trend for the community. Its funny, how there’s no other culture to blame, people take pride in putting their own culture, and people down. Needless, to say it is a shame. Yeah, I was never a fan of SoulJa boy, but there’s nothing childish about his response to an adult who should know better, but is to far up to really perceive the bigger picture.

    Ice-T targeting this 17 year-old kid is pretty laughable.I don’t care what anyone says. That song put the fun back in hip-hop and it was harmless fun.Soulja Boy’s just a kid. Give him a break.

    i’m sitting here reading the comments and i’m seeing that y’all are some ignant ass mu’fuckas. “At least Soulja Boy isn’t selling drugs”? what type of shit is that? is that the only option for a young black male. and then the other responses are “at least he’s getting pad”. So! that doesn’t make it right. That type of mentality is what has hip hop all fucked up. Everybody sees it as a come up and doesn’t care about the art.

    “‘Sometimes I feel like Ice T,surviving the game”-One of my lyrics I never got around to actually spitting.That ‘movie’ used to get more play than Rambo on HBO.(EPMD stand up)…”

    Is that you, Jacki-O??

    1) Again, what do you have against “light-skinned” people–ignorant…

    2) Again, who gives a f–k if Soulja Boy is an “entertainer” or selling units?? He’s an ignorant coon!

    3) Why is he getting a pass saying that he’s from Atlanta?? He’s from Batesville, MS, and has only been in Atlanta for a few years, and MS doesn’t want to claim him!

    4) Why are people presuming that he’s only ’17,’ especially since he’s lying about where he’s from?

    5) Who cares if he’s ’17′? How old was Nas when his first album came out? Was it “Coon-Hop,” too??

    6) F–k anyone trying to use a quote from a movie to diss Ice-T. Show some respect for one of the greatest, if not the greatest, of all time.

    Brodie, if ur talkin 2 me… check my myspace, then ull hear what i listen 2. the roots, erykah badu, old school outkast, jill scott; real shit..as well as 80s joints, even rock… nothing mainstream about fresh. before u give critique, read the whole thing.. 1st line read, I dont listen 2 his music.. and yes, selling drugs is real in the community… and nope, im NOT from the hood, but the truth is the truth… THE FUCKIN MUSIC SOLD. Clown the people who bought it, not the 1 who cashed the check… get over it.
    like I said, art is freedom of expression, who are U to say whats good and whats crap? there are many genres that we dont even listen to, but they generate wayy more revenue than hip hop… is it bullshit, or just not for you?

  • http://www.myspace.com/thegameoncw Bird

    Ice T could have kept his opinion about lil man’s music to himself. He didn’t have to call the boy out like that. He’s looking real crazy right now.

    Maybe hip hop heads would be happier if Soulja Boy was classified as pop rather than rap. Either way, I don’t see the boy having longevity in the rap game so this whole argument is moot.

  • Brodie

    nah fam, it was a blanket comment. i’m just frustrated at the fact that people actually believe that selling dope/ crack is the only means to making some type of cash. whatever happened to striving for education?
    niggas really believe in that “get rich or die trying” mentality, meaning niggas will do anything no matter how extreme it is as long as the end result was some paper and that’s some ignorant shit

  • giantstepp

    “I might do the dance in private on check day, ” LMAO!!! I feel ya Bro

    yo, good drop. this is a big L for both of them cats. I respect Ice T’s knowledge and reconize him as an OG, but going after a 17 year old the way he did is not a good look. And God help Soulja Boy, PLEASE!

  • .tony.
