No, really, Soulja Boy, eat a dick

When I saw, yesterday, that Ice T had issued a drop on some mixtape, talking about how Soulja Boy single handedly ruined hip-hop, and how he should eat a dick, I should have known it would only be a matter of time before Soulja Boy would mount some sort of response.

After all, Soulja Boy has a history of this kind of thing. Last year, when the GZA happened to mention at one of his shows the fact that Soulja Boy is single handedly ruining hip-hop, Soulja Boy had the sheer balls to talk shit about the GZA.

In an interview, Soulja Boy was talking about how he didn’t even know who the GZA was, and how Mr. Collipark or somebody had to sit him down and explain to him that the GZA was a member of the Wu-Tang Clan, which was a big rap group back in the 1990s.

In a post here, I suggested that the reason Soulja Boy didn’t just log onto Wikipedia and find out for himself might be that he can’t read. Around that same time, I had heard (I think I actually read it in Wikipedia, oddly enough), that both him and his weed carrier, A-rab, both failed the ninth grade twice, before finally dropping out of high school.

But it could be the case that Soulja Boy can read, at least on like a fifth grade level, and the reason he doesn’t bother to learn about any of the pioneers of this shit until they’ve made it a point to come out dissing him is because he has no respect for the culture. He just views it as a hustle.

That’s basically what I took from his YouTube response to Ice T, which you can check in the Bangers section of this site.

In the clip, Soulja Boy begins by playing the audio of Ice T telling him to eat a dick; and if you notice, he shuts it off right when Ice T begins to run down the litany of pioneers in this genre, who set such a high artistic standard, only to have Soulja Boy and his ilk come along and degrade it to such a degree. Soulja Boy even says something to the effect of, “Fuck that other shit,” right as he’s shutting it off. (You can check the full audio of Ice T’s rant re: Soulja Boy over at WSHH.)

I’m assuming this was less a matter of Soulja Boy being concerned with any time constraints as it was a matter of him not giving a rat’s ass about any of the people Ice T mentioned, and, by extension, the argument Ice T was trying to make in the first place, which is that Soulja Boy fucking sucks balls compared to them. Names like Rakim and Das Efx (perhaps no so much Ice Cube) probably flew way under Soulja Boy’s radar, and he probably won’t learn anything about them unless they, too, tell him to eat a dick. Which they should.

Then Soulja Boy actually pulls up Ice T’s page from Wikipedia and begins to read from it. This was surprising to me, in that, the last time Soulja Boy had an issue with an older rapper, he had to have someone explain to him who it was. Could it be that Soulja Boy read my post about his beef with the GZA, in which I suggested he might start educating himself using the world’s most accurate encyclopedia? The guy obviously stays up on the Internets, if he was able to have his response to Ice T on YouTube in a mere matter of hours.

Unfortunately, it doesn’t appear that Soulja Boy read too far into Ice T’s Wikipedia entry beyond the part where it says he was born in 1958 in New Jersey, i.e. like the first sentence. He tries to suggest that Ice T is a T.I.-style faker (aww dang!) for repping California when he’s really from New Jersey. Which is just silly, since Ice T has never denied that he was born in New Jersey. The fact that he had to move to California after his parents died, where he eventually fell into a life of crime, is central to the narrative in the guy’s music. And Soulja Boy seems especially taken with the fact that Ice is now 50 (yikes!), launching into a bunch of old people which I know some people said they found amusing, but I didn’t think they were very funny. The one line I did think was kinda was when he said Ice has a “sherm perm.” As you may have noticed by this point, I’m a sucker for angel dust humor.

I posted the clip on my site yesterday, and a few people in the comments section seemed to take issue with the fact that the 50 year-old Ice T was telling the 17 year-old Soulja Boy to eat a dick – which was one of the points Soulja Boy himself was trying to make in the clip. Some even went so far as to suggest that this constituted R. Kelly-style molestation. As if Ice T was actually threatening to hunt Soulja Boy down and mouth rape him. (Which, again, someone should.) You know how mofos like to get all haughty and outraged over the Internets. I think it’s obvious Ice T meant what he said in a figurative sense. It’s like when a guy calls another guy a fag. It’s not that he saying the guy’s gay; he just thinks he’s less of a man.

Beyond just the man-on-boy sexual aspect of it (no Birdman), Soulja Boy’s argument seems to be that Ice T is an old-ass man, and hence he should have better things to do than to sweat what Soulja Boy is doing. This struck me as bullshit for a couple of reasons. First of all, I’m at a loss for what it is that old people do besides complain about young people. And I’m wondering if this isn’t as it should be. Ice T is speaking as a pioneer in hip-hop culture, concerned that Soulja Boy is turning it into teh gheyness. You would be upset, too, if you helped build something from the ground up, just to have some kid come along and make it look all gay.

And Soulja Boy’s argument isn’t even so much that Ice T is too old to judge his music from an aesthetic point of view as it is that Ice T has a lot of money, and hence that should preclude him from giving a shit about the state of the art. As if that’s all that matters. You can tell that’s what Soulja Boy thinks, since he goes on to talk about how he used to be poor as fuck, living in the ghetto (people in the ghetto have the Internets, and webcams and shit?), and now he’s helping to support his mother, and his younger siblings, who are still in school (probably struggling to pass that damn ninth grade). At one point, he actually says something to the effect of, “You’ve already got a shiteload of money. Why don’t you just quit?”

It’s no wonder hip-hop is as fucked up as it is, if this is the thought process of kids these days.

      “Do people in the ghetto have internet and webcams and shit”? What the hell do you mean? Just because someone lives in the ghetto it doesn’t mean that they dont have a spare dollar to buy things like this you dumb f***!

      • http://www.unsigned.com/dbrown D.Brown

        I hope your joking about that. Dude if your in the GHETTO you should not be able to buy a webcam and pay for internet service. YOUR BROKE!! You cannot afford a reasonable place to live but you can buy some webcams? Wow Section 8 has destroyed that mind of people. Your main goal should be to either fix or get out of the ghetto. And JayZ killed hip hop also. This nigga is whack. I am tired of the money hoes and clothes point of view. We are in a war and the dollar value is going down and niggas are talking about getting paid. LOSERS!!!

      • http://www.myspace.com/elevatedmindsmc MC

        Why is Ice-T hatin on soulja boi? you mean besides the reasons that you gave (we all hate him and his songs are terrible) WELL it could be like the blog said, Ice-T was was an essential part in a major turning point in hip-hop history and now this young ignorant muthafucka is making rap look stupid and one dimensional, or it could be the fact that if someone as profoundly stupid as soulja boi is appealing to the youth of today, they’re all gonna grow up and be at LEAST as dumb as he is

    • http://internationalzonecoaster.blogspot.com Max-Jerome

      The only first I have is actually agreeing with Soulja Boy to a certain degree, and this is very rare.

      Soulja Boy, HipHop is like Homework (oh wait you dropped out in the ninth grade), and you fell for the “old ass nigga” okey doke.

      You should be proud of yourself. You look even more ignorant now.

      If you would of researched even further and made a few phone calls or just simply asking your “Old ass Peers” (and not wikipedia), you would of known that he tried this same shit with LL Cool J, and got bodied on “To The Break Of Dawn”. Wake Up Man.

      Let it be known,(for those who forgot) Ice T is a multimillionare who made money off of Sex, Drugs & Violence. But I think he forgot about that. He reps LA but we See Mr. Ice in Secaucus NJ at HardCore Starbucks getting his Lattes…

      Now Ice is an advocate of keeping it true as a black man (shouts out out CO CO his Caucasian Wife) and to the culture???.

      These rap niggas is funny to me.

      Attacking Soulja Boy is like responding to the KRS-ONE/Nelly Beef.

      If you a true HipHop Head its nothing worse than seeing someone who is horrible make tons of money.

      But the way the game is now, isn’t that how it normally works???

      Ice T went from Pimp, To Death Metal Cop Killer to Playing a police officer, exploited the Culture himself on VH1 with the worst reality television show about taking rich white kids and making them rappers.

      How come people don’t research when they post???

      The only thing I can get “Rubber Band Man” on is his lack of knowledge of HipHop Culture.

      Lupe fucked up ATCQ lyrics, then retorted with, “I Never Listened to them” yet he is the future of BackPack HipHop.

      These rap niggas is funny to me.

      Letit be know, Im not cosigning Soulja Boys Lyrical/Musical Content but more about “enough is enough”.

      Sadly, just like every young jedi in the game, Ice T has the “high ground” and all of your body parts is about to get cut off.

      It might not be today, but look at your wikipedia (since thats your weapon of choice) in about two years…well see what it says.

      That little money you got in the bank is making you believe your own hype.

      Soulja Boy, everyone knows you one hit wonder but you. Sure you can produce, and you can work behind the scenes doing “sample free jingles”, but another dance hit like that??? Won’t happen kid.

      How can you not know who the GZA is?? Is this remotely possible??

      Its obvious his “eat a dick” statement got to you because you had the audio cued up..

      Unless you know something I dont know, and I’m the consumer. The song was so stupid it had to be a hit, just like Chicken Noodle Soup, Laffy Taffy etc. Its all on the same level.

      You name one hit wonder rapper who topped themselves after having a run away hit.

      Thats like MJ surpassing Thriller.

    • Enid

      Bol

      check out Kanye’s response on his blog on the issue. You are wrong though. Souljah Boy made a good point: how you going to rap Cop Killer then be a cop on a Cop show? But the bigger question for me is, how you going to blame the wrongs or ruins of a million dollar industry on a 17 year old? Come on that’s childish. If this is the biggest fish GZA and Ice-T (or Lemonade as Souljah Boy calls him) have to fry, its says a lot about how unfocused they are. Play the game. Only time will tell if these rascals (Souljah Boy, Hurricane Chris) have anything to offer the game. Don’t forget the former little rascal, who now calls himself the greatest rapper alive(Lil’ Wayne). Not Souljah Boy, but Ice-T needs to respect the game.

      • http://internationalzonecoaster.blogspot.com Max-Jerome

        I’m listening to the response from ICE-T.

        It looks like he even forgot about his own statements and oddly apologized by dissecting the “eat a dick” statement from the young man, and focusing more on the music.

        Fucking with H. Chris is not a good look because we all know (well except for ice) he is a blood, and Ice Is a Crip….

      soulja boy is just the end result of being raised on southern hip hop, you can tell by the way he raps and his subject matter, thats all he knows. If you were 17 and all you heard was master p, cash money growing up, this is what u get. He grew up in a time when (im drunk just listen to the kid rap)…he might have a future as a producer, but not an M.C.

  • dookie

    Soulja Boy dumb as hell. Sayin that Ice-T was 3 centuries older than him. I think he meant decades. Ice-T should have one of his weed carriers weed carriers fuck him up. Remember when that little ass kid threw rocks at soulja boys bus? lol

  • Walt

    The only reason Ice-T is being vocal about Souljah Boy and Hurricane Chris is for publicity purposes. He’s got an album to promote, that’s it. We didn’t hear one peep out of Ice all this time, but now all of the sudden he’s got a problem with “Crank Dat”.

    The music is by kids for kids; yes, it is garbage if you are over a certain age, but it’s not meant for a mature audience.

    So I guess back in the day, Rakim should have went at Raven Simone for making kiddy crap like “Hip Hop Teddy Bear”.

    • alishia green

      I feel like you are absolutely right and then further more if you feel disrespected and you are a adult it is a better way to handle the situation than to tell a CHILD to eat a dick thats whats wrong with these kids now!!!

  • http://www.plasticsquirtguns.blogspot.com thoreauly77

    yep, it works, but i had just read the same post at BC.C and commented first, basically just saying that ice-t doesn’t need to do shit; soulja boy ethers himself every time he opens his mouth and speaks, let alone his “music”.

  • Nad

    Fucca a Soulja boy Bol is on point in this post know wonder Nas says hip-hop is dead where you got bitch ass niggas like Soulja boy chattin shit he not only shuld suck Ice-T’s dick he shuld stick his head in an oven.

  • http://www.incilin.blogspot.com Incilin

    My full blown response to all this is at my blog, but I will say this; you can’t hate Soulja for being ass-ignorant. I hate the people who buy his records and made him famous in the first place. And the fact that he reads the first few lines and watches the first few seconds only shows how small an attention span young kids have these days.

    • http://xxl.com Jsouth

      Damn cuz U hate the people who buy his records? Look I’m gon tell ya’ll niggaz straight up. If U ARE A CERTAIN AGE U SHOULDNT EVEN BE LISTENIN TO RAP!!! If u can’t comprehend that this is a kid that makes fuckin kid music u need to fuckin kill yourself. U should be listenin to your era of music. Back in the day nobody over 30 thought Biz Markie was fuckin up hip hop wit bullshit like “pickin boogers” Guess ya’ll niggaz forgot about “just a friend”. Das Efx should tell soulja boy to eat a dick? like theyre known for sayin some profound shit.them niggaz aint said shit that effects my life today.Ya’ll stupid muthafuckaz was probably doin the “pee wee herman dance” back in the day(joe ski luv for all u frontin ass self proclaimed hip hop heads) Man this internet shit is whats really fuckin up shit.Man Ice T dont evven respect ya’ll internet sissies where its cool to HATE behind closed doors. Soulja Boy if u r readin this shit, dont let these haters detrmine what u do in life. I don’t fuck wit ya music bcuz i’m in my thirties cuz. I’m good. My favorite niggaz (IceCube, Scarface ,Jay ,Nas,Dre) still makin music for niggaz like me so DO YOU HOMEBOY!!! We did this shit back in the day for ya’ll kids to get money some day.Get it homie!! Fuckin gay ass internet bloggers.Ice T told ya’ll to eat a dick a long time ago.QUIT HATIN PEOPLE IT’S NOT COOL AND DON’T LET THESE LAME ASS INTERNET PEOPLE BRAINWASH YA’LL INTO THINKIN THAT SHIT IS COOL NOW A DAYS.IT WAS AND IS NEVER COOL TO HATE THE NEXT MAN’S GRIND. SAME SHIT DIFFERENT DAY.Don’t let these brand new internet niggaz tell ya’ll different.WAKE UP PEOPLE!!!!

  • northern california bay area

    let tha kid do what he wants, i dont listen to em at all so he dont bother me

    what bothers me tho is how cats say hes ruinin hip hop,

    to me hip hop is in tha eye of tha beholder, n since i dont include wack shit in my hip hop, i see nothin wrong with tha current state of hip hop, ya digg…

    ive figured this shit out for a while now n i finally decided to lace yall with the secret of bringing hip hop back to life,

    dont watch any music video show on tv

    i see all these “real hip hop fans” talk so much shit about how hip hop is dead n how tha mainstream music scene is so wack, fuck it, dont let tha mainsteam music scene dictate what hip hop is or what hip hop is to you, how many of these industry execs are actual hip hop heads?, id say slim to nil,

    i honestly see hip hop as very much alive n full of life cause i have almost no idea what goin on on the mainstream side of things, i havent watch tha bassment, direct effect, bet live, 106 n park, or any of that shit in hella months, maybey even years, same goes with xxl n tha sauce, n because of that i only see the hip hop i wanna see and i love the hip hop i see,

    who cares if your favorite artist dont get any spins on radio or tv, or “real artists” arent getting the attention they “should get” from the mainstream, give em a million spins of your own on your cd player, watch their video a million times on youtube, if YOU feel tha music then support tha artist, dont leave it up to anybody else…

    if you feel tha music and tha artist does it really matter if they get any radio or tv love?, n if tha artist truely cares about the music then he wont trip either…

    lol i kinda see it as tha “popular table” inna school lunch room, you could say tha cats sittin there are cool or whatever but their wack n artificial, n you could switch your style up to blend in with them cats n be popular n be tha envy of most in tha school, but why would you wanna do that, juss so tha weak minded can think somthing of you?, you should be smarter then that n know all tha real savage mothafuckas aint nowhere near tha popular table, cause they dont give a fuck about a popular table, they keep it true to themselves, n keep it real for their real peers,
    shure somtimes shit happenin around tha popular table is entertainin to look at, but thats far n inbetween, maybey even some of tha kids at tha popular table are coo cats once you give a chance n get to know em personally, n once that happens then you aint gotta trip about tha wackness of tha rest of tha popular table cause you know tha cat is coo person

    so you could sit there n say how wack tha cafeteria is cause everything seems to revolve around tha popular table, or you could ignore it n only see tha real cats thas in there…

    i dont pay any attention to tha mainstream hip hop scene, juss tha shit i see as good music, n because of that, it boggles my mind to hear some people think hip hop is dead…

    its your hip hop, you shape n mold it to your likes, dont put any negative in it, and there will be no negative in it…

      i dont have the attention span to read all this but all i gotsta say about the first 6 paragraphs is….. amen to everything u said

    Ice T kinda always sucked. I mean I liked “Let’s Get But Naked and Fuck” as much as the next girl, but he was what cats from the east meant when they used to say west coast niggas were ruining hip hop, with their simple, 70s style rhyme structure…which wasn’t as offensive from Short, who never took himself as seriously as Ice T. (This is all pre Ren and Cube, of course). In fact, it wasn’t til Ice T started fucking w/the pigs that I even sorta respected him. Then he became one on tv (for the money?). So actually, it’s Tracy who shld fall back. He may have been in this forever, but he basically pioneered a real bullshit style himself. As for Souljah Boy, he’s the Egyptian Lover of his time. There’s always been dance rap…that’s folk art. Hip-hop=Rakim=Art. So yeah…and I openly heart you bol, you hilarious little misogynist you.

  • http://myspace.com/marko4aoc Marko-V

    Its clear that money is the main motivating factor in rapping these days so for Souljah Boy to tell Ice T that he has money so quit already just means that the art of it all has nothing to do with it. Remember when Jeezy blasted Nas for sayin Hip Hop is dead and then basically challenged his skills by sayin wait til them 1st week numbers come back. Hip Hop has been reduced to numbers; money and sales. So in the modern climate, Ice T may have valid points but has no win because he can’t put up any numbers to compete with Souljah Boy. Even his youtube views surpass Ice T’s on Law and Order.
    Yo check me out on myspace.com/marko4aoc

  • Pierzy

    Soulja Boy is a complete piece of rat shit. ANYBODY that cares even a little bit about the artistic integrity (and history) of hip-hop should bitch slap him and kick him in the nuts. Actually, I wish LeBron had done this in the playoffs this year but David Stern kind-of frowns on that stuff.

    There are literally millions of people that rep this shit the right way but a few dudes that don’t care about the art of it are ruining it. Imagine if Leonardo Da Vinci was alive and people were telling him that he’s too old and that South Park’s animation (the drawings, not the content or jokes) was the new hot shit? Wouldn’t he have a right to be pissed? I think Rakim should hunt down Soulja Boy, tell him his age, spit a 10 minute diss rhyme that the 17 homo couldn’t understand, and then punch him with the microphone. That would make me happy.

  • Rizob

    ok i gotta a couple questions…

    1.When did become a crime in hip-hop/rap music to make a dance/club record?

    2.When did it become a crime in hip-hop/rap music to have fun on a record?

    3.When has it ever been a wrong to be successful at what you do?

    4.Does every hip-hip/rap song have to be about money, hoes, drugs, and murder?

    5.Finally,(for you elitist ma’fuckas) isnt dancing one of the four pillars of hip-hop/rap? So isn’t Souljah Boy representing hip-hop to the fullest?

    **just something for you ignorant people to think about. Souljah Boy serves his purpose.**

    • Rizob should eat a dick

      Soulja Boy and his fans are proof that the school system is failing. They should all be subject to eat a dick as Ice-T has previously suggested.

    • BIGNAT

      more like pop locking and breakdancing things like that. ballroom dance is dancing but it’s not one of the 4 elements. also they are alot of songs in rap that don’t fit under what you named. one of the most succesful at it even though i never liked him was will smith. you also have the roots the offical band of rap. i think ice-t is not mad at him for the crappy music he makes but the lack of respect. for the people involved past and present in what he is making his money off of now. you ever watch that hip hop honors show you see how artist of today put they heart into reciting lyrics of there fellow rappers. t.i. was reciting snoop’s lyrics like them joints was his own. i think soulja boy will never be invited to that show to perform or to be honored. i smell something off him it’s called one hit wonder

    • florida_evans

      Ok,I gotta couple answers…
      1.Actually,a dance/club record is ANY record you can dance to,hip/hop rap music notwithstanding,rendering your question rather pointless,don’t you think?

      2.When having fun on a record involves blathering about nothing,I say that constitutes a crime against the state of hip hop.(Ooooh ,I’m good)!

      3.When being successful at what you do involves peein on a chick,or using check to pay for hooker(s),I’d say that would constitute wrongfulness.

      4.No,but every rap song should be about an actual display of EMCEE skill,no matter what the subject is,OK YOU PEOPLE WHO DON’T SEEM TO UNDERSTAND THAT RAP IS AN ORATORICAL SCIENCE?!

      5.You actually made 1/2 a point.Problem is,Sista Soulja doesn’t b-boy.You newbies may know it as breakdancing.See,it can’t be just any form of dance.And no,he’s actually representing Hip hop half-assed and halfheartedly.Say that 3 times fast!

      And to address your final point(!)Stating that Soulja boy serves his purpose is an insult to purposelessness.Seriously,that was a backhanded compliment.You’re inadvertently saying that he’s a waste of time and space.Ohh now I get it….

    I didn’t get to watch either one of these dayum vids because I mostly dabble with music sites on the internets at work, and my “company” can’t seem to get computers that support Java (the US Army can spend millions to make a phucking one-use bomb, but they can’t give me some cot dayum Java Script son? p.s. thanks for your tax dollars!)

    But alas, I do think I got enough info from the comments section to effectively say that Soulja Boy (Tell ‘em) should at least know what the dayum deal was in hip hop (the genre he “loosely” falls into it) from its conception until now.

    And claiming that its all about the money is in essence like telling a kid with crayons trying to dis Michelangelo’s Sistine’s Chapel because it has a naked dude on it (no Baby ‘n Weezy) (also if you think Michelangelo was only a Ninja Turtle, “wiki” Sistine Chapel you ninth grade drop out) Basically get your Hip Hop History game up lil man.

    And as for his music, I really can’t phucks with it. I mean we let shit like Amy “Whinehouse” slip by us. She we even gave Vanilla Ice a many times multi Plat album (and all ya’ll know you phucked with Ice Ice Baby back in the day, much to your detriment) . I don’t hear anyone in the rock world getting all up in arms cuz there are like 210 different genres or Rock music popping up. His shi’ite is wack and only good for had bobbing and maybe one spin at the club after midnight (incidentally around the same time Birdman isn’t allowed to feed Weezy F. for fear of reproduction, gremlin azz nucca) when we are all tipsy offa our cheap azz well drinks which are priced like top shelf.

    But then again, if SB asked me to pit a couple of bars on his next “Aquaman Tha Skank” single, I would def jump on that ish, and ride the royalty check all the way to the lottery ticket counter. But hey, maybe I’m just a phuckin hypocrite.

    When did it become a crime in Hip Hop to get at wack ass rappers?

    Dudes are pussies these days…

    • Chaka

      I myself m wondering like you.I think this hate on Soulja boy is now getting out of hand.And if someone dont put an end to this madness,an idiot might put one into that young lad thinking he is doing Hip Hop a favour.Peace

    When did it become a crime in Hip Hop to get at wack ass rappers? Now we’re concerned with where rappers are from? What sort of patty cake ass bullshit is this?

      WHICH WACK RAPPER U TALKIN BOUT. ICE T OR SOULJA BOY?

  • http://www.myspace.com/thejungle612 krazyk612

    you would think if you blow up like soulja boy did, you would atleast do a little research on hip-hop. . .even tho I think artist’s should do that before they even get as big as he did.

    • http://xxl.com Jsouth

      WHAT RESEARCH DID DIPSET DO?

  • KLETEWOOD

    BOl- I think you meant to put (FUNNY) here:

    The one line I did think was kinda (FUNNY) was when he said Ice has a “sherm perm.” As you may have noticed by this point, I’m a sucker for angel dust humor.

    Or, you could put CLASSIC. Either way…your good.

    I’m a sucker for angel dust humor too…HAHAHAH

  • Justice4all

    Well…, you struck the nail on the head. “Wack Boy” needs to learn about hip hop as a culture and those who repped it before he decided to throw up on the mic. When you have a pioneer that help shape west coast music, that has to be respected. Now true, Ice-T could have come off less as a hater if he cared to, but obviously he felt “wack soulja boy”, didn’t deserve that type of attention. Rememeber, Ice-T was a pimp, so the one thing he knows is how to get a ho’s attention, and he did. “Super Wack Boy”, should just go invest in a ghost writer and shut his mouf. Umbufoo.

  • mr.martin

    Ice-T is such a phony…. First of all homeboy was never that nice. he’s a pioneer in the sense that he’s the first guy to show up to the party. Then, he is 50. NOt meaning he’s old, but that he should not be tryna act gangsta on a mixtape of all places by going at a 17yr old pop rapper, just to say something controversial. Ice T has long been that black guy that white folks look to to peek into the lives of the inner city, and he relishes that role of being the mouthpiece to the hood to all the soccer moms. Basically he is a sellout. Souljahboy had a point …. approach him and teach him to sharpen his skills, instead of tryna talk shit. Ice T got no skills so he might not be able to though. As far as the gza , i saw the clip, money was probably drunk and tryna cater to the high school and college white kids that fill up his shows

    • http://xxl.com Jsouth

      FINALLY SOME REAL TALK ON THIS MUTHAFUCKIN HATIN ASS WEBSITE

    • DETROIT

      Ice T was never that nice? what are you 15?

      do the research: “The Tower”, “Mind over Matter”, “HighRoller”, “OG”, “COLORS”, “I’m your pusher”, “New Jack Hustler”, “G-Style”, “6 in da mornin”. The nigga got like 20 classic songs! That’s what’s frustrating about the current generation. When we were kids, you never heard “al green wasn’t that nice!”, cuz we did the research. Ice – T was like the first rapper to be in a movie with real actors…you think they said, “let’s get a rapper that’s not that nice and put him in a movie”….Lil niggas is dumb these days!

  • 239allday

    Bol, I’ve said before that if you was a rapper I’d most likely be bumpin your shit(NO HOMO). Being young is no excuse for being wack. Bone thugs was all teenagers when they dropped they classic E.1999. That nigga aint got no respect for the culture. Hip hop my first love and I feel like this nigga pimping and raping her all for the money. I was born in 1988 (set it straight like Big Daddy Kane say).I’ve come to the conclusion that anyone born after 1990 does not know shit!

    • http://xxl.com Jsouth

      APPARENTLY NOBODY BORN AFTER ’88 KNOWS SHIT EITHER.THERE WAS PLENTY OF BUBBLE GUM WACK SHIT B4 U WERE BORN.LOOK UP ROB BASE AND EZ ROCK FOR STARTERS PIMP

  • KRZY

    whats throwed is ice t hollin at SB like that. he see that he is young and dumb to hip hop history so y not skool him? this the same mutha fucka that made cop killa but plays a cop on tv. cop killa is the best shit t made….i think sb got 2 hits…. advantage sb. i aint taking his side im just saying…. when i say hits i mean popularity wise.dude need to stop it. sb and ice t… maybe if they sucked each other dick it’ll work both ways.

  • Oneofthemyo’s

    Wow good spin on that man,cause when i looked at both videos i got a completely different outlook from yours meaning soulja boy had a couple good points to me-(I know crazy thought right)but I see where his ignorance still shown through with the money and how ice cube should quit, he obviously doesnt understand hip hop is not just a cash cow to some people its deeper.
    Anyway lil nig obviously has business sense if he could somehow put that intelligence in his music him and people like plies would be cool but till then he still wack and soulja didnt kill hip hop the LISTENING AUDIENCE DID. People stop supporting bullshit thats all.

  • d_major

    fuck ice t and soulja boy.

    end of story. have a nice day

  • westcoast mexican

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

    On the one hand, Soulja Boy is making a contribution to the culture. It’s not my brand of vodka but hey…

    On the other hand, Ice-T is a street legend on the west coast. It takes one phone call to snatch this kid and sell his sunglasses at a swap meet.

    Ice-T > Soulja Boy

  • Juan

    YEAH SOULDJA BOY SHOULNT HAVE RESPONDED
    HE SHOULD BE IN THE LAB TRYING TO INOVATE NOT FEEDING INTO THE HATE
    HOPEFULLY HE WORKS ON HIS CRAFT AND DOES THE RIGHT THING.
    LET A YOUNGSTA DO HIS THANG
    I MEAN THATS NOT YOUR CHILD AND YES HE HAS AN INFLUENCE BUT AT THE END OF THE DAY EVERYONE IS AT A DIFFERENT POINT IN THERE LIFE.
    AND CAN’T NOBODY SINGLE HANDEDLY KILL HIPHOP.
    HIP HOP CANT BE STOPPED

    I THOUGHT YALL WOULD HAVE KNOWN BY NOW.

    HIP HOP WILL NEVER DIE.

    SO DON’T BLAME IT ON A YOUGSTA THAT IS JUST TRYING TO MAKE SOME MONEY WHILE HAVING FUN AT THE SAME TIME.

    I DONT DO THE SOULDJA BOY BUT IF SOMEONE WANTS TO DO IT THEY CAN BCUZ THIS IS AMERICA EVERYBODY who says hip hop is dead NEEDS TO DO SOMETHING ABOUT WHATEVERS KILLING HIP HOP BCUZ IM TIRED OF HEARING HIP HOPS DEAD AND THERE KILLING HIP HOP.

    WHAT ARE YOU DOING TO SAVE IT?
    BUYING his CD?

    yeah album sales is gonna save hip hop.

    let him live his life.

I thought that we wouldnt see any worse characters than the hot boys and no limit when that bullshit came out, but I was wrong. The bar for lyrical content keeps dropping and it is an insult and a disgrace. Big up Ice-T and GZA.

    @the dull ones,
    Some of you out there are very dull.Is Hip
    Hop so lame and powerless that an individual can come from nowhere and ruin it?This is the idea some of you are giving about Hip Hop by saying soulja boy is single handedly ruining hip hop.Who is Soulja boy?Is he now a force?You guys should kill all the nonsense you have been saying about that young lad.Let him be.Hip hop is an art and so like every other art it is bound to have artists with short comings.If the Nases,the Gzas,the Ice-Ts and other rap artists who think they are that great,feel the art is dying,then they should save it instead of complaining.Since Nas said Hip Hop is dead what has he done to revive it?Instead of blaming the Soulja boys and the Wanyes for the present state of the art,I think the ones we should be blaming are the so-called greats like Nas,Jay-z, Redman,Rakim,KRS1 e.t.c.Because if these greatest were truly living up to the standard people have placed them then no one will be really worried about the records cats like Soulja boy are putting out.Put it like this: if Hip Hop is dead today it is only because those[the so-called greats] who are suppose to be keeping it alive are either making shit records or doing nothing.Peace an Hip Hop head in Africa wrote this.

Kris Kross wasn’t lyrical, Sir Mix a Lot wasn’t lyrical, its many niggas from the “Golden Age” that wasn’t lyrical. Stop trying to put hip hop in a box, its enough niggas doing the same shit right now anyway atleast he did his own shit n didn’t try to act like he Tony Montana in the hood or some shit.Let that young nigga get his shine why he can. Rappers on some real jealous shit right now cuz they ain’t producing good music so they ain’t gettin no spins!!! Make some hot shit, drop a hot album, and shut the fuck up. The ppl that’s still making good music ain’t complaining bout Souljah Boi! You ever hear Kanye or Jay or Lupe or Andre 3k or Common or any of these caliber steady producers of good music complaining bout this one young nigga???

  • Dave

    Wait, Soulja Boy didn’t even know who GZA was? Fuck me sideways, kid. I’m a 16 year-old white boy from a rural area of Maryland and I know who GZA is. Shit, I could probably put out a better track than “Crank Dat”, too.

          The part that irritated me the most was when soulja boy said to ice t “how you gonna make a song called ‘fuck the police?’” Soulja Boy is so dumb. It wasn’t Ice T who made “fuck the police”, it was NWA. EVERY hip hop fan and their momma knows that NWA made that song…And so what if Ice T was born in NJ? He grew up on the West coast. He rapped about shit he went through there.

  • not given

    i think that souljah boy did not single handedly kill hip hop because simply soula boy isn’t doing hip hop just modern folk art music and ice t should focus on getting his life together and career if you don’t like his music don’t listen you an og? then do what og’s do…represent for the hood instead of being a bitch about it 100

  • beezyboy

    Attention BOL: Did you ever check out that movie called “Breakin pt.2″? It’s from ’86 or something, and Ice-T appears in the movie rappin’. It’s a super sugarcoated movie and Ice-T comes on stage to rap about the corny theme of it. He’s 17-18 at this time, and he does a superwack dance-rap. A goofy uptempo beat and he raps like a white guy in a car-commercial. I just saw it the other day, and I have to say that Ice-T was actually SouljaBoy in ’86. I respect Ice-T for other stuff he did in his career. But it’s just too funny that he disses SouljaBoy when in fact himself was on that same wack shit in ’86!! So I guess Ice has to eat his own dick.

  • Plan

    Well this is what the hip hop community gets for abandoning its roots.

    Can anyone say they’re surprised by this? Hip hop used to be about storytelling, realness and skill. It hasn’t been that way for at least 12+ years, because we abandoned that in favor of fools constantly rhyming about how much shit they have and how great they are.

    Seriously, consider how fucked up this music is. Every song is essentially a three-minute-long rant about how much more money/fame/women/cars the “artist” has compared with everyone else. The genre has gotten so base that Nelly swiping credit cards through women’s ass cracks seems like quaint shit.

    So how can you blame the pioneers of this music for getting angry when they see what it’s become?

  • http://xxlmag.com CJVA634

    I feel this blog, I feel Ice-T, and I feel most of these comments, but let’s be realistic… It’s not absolutely Solja Fag’s fault. I personally would blame the fans (and let’s not say the kid’s are buying it, cuz it’s plenty of grown folks in the club crankin’ dat and gettin’ silly). But most of all, this is Colli Park’s fault, because he obviously has no idea what hip hop is, and he is more than willing to support those acts talent, or lack there of. The industry is so fucked up because of ceo’s like him.

    First off, fuck where you from it’s where U at!! DJ Premier is from Houston, does he represent it? Fuck no! Xzibit is from Detroit too! So SB point was fuckin’ irrelevant.
    Then some of you bitches say Ice T is too old to act like a gangsta, he’s a gangsta, always was, always will be! There’s no age retirement punks!! It’s not like a fuckin’ job!
    In addition, most of you bitches are 15 years old and suckin’ on SB’s dick just like your older brothers were suckin’ on vanilla ice’s dick 18 years backward!!
    I totally agree with Byron thoughts, he just forgot to diss SB on the “Fuck The Police” mistake. Stupid ignorant fuck!

  • RotterdamSoldier.

    Yo real talk…They’re both wrong.
    Ice-t is an O.G. and he could have brought his point better accros then SB eat a dick.
    But SB SB i know you only 17 or 18 and some shit but if you don’t even know who made fuck the police…shiiiiiiiiit
    And there a lot of youngin’s that spit that fire so that’s no excuse for putting bullshit out sb! I mean i saw this little skinny white dude ASHER ROTH SPITTING THAT HOT SHIT and damn Soulja boy,that dude is not even on yet(He will be soon through Akon’s label i think)but i’ll bet my left and right nut that that white boy would wipe his ass with you.
    And you can call Ice-t an old ass nigga but that nigga broke down barriers with legends like Rakim,EPMD,Public Enemy,Kool G Rap,etc.
    Now to you youngins i might be a old(29)nigga but i still love Hiphop/Rap and if i don’t like shit i don’t listen too it it’s that simple.
    And fo real i can’t stand that Soulja boy shit but he’s doing HIM and he’s having fun doing it so i can’t knock the youngin’s hustle.
    Hiphop just to be about bucking the system,being a voice for the people but it seems that those days are over.Not over cause you have a lot of real mc’s out there you just don’t here them a lot or as lot as Sb on the radio/media.
    Cause the youngin’s don’t want to hear that shit.
    And i’m not blaming the youngins for that.
    Sometimes shit’s just is what it is.

  • mick

    i think you will find puffy f*8ked up hip hop about 12 years ago

    • poetikassasin

      agreed lol

  • Iinglish

    So many dudes are right in this topic.

    Here´s my 2 cents ;

    I dont feel Soulja Boy at all, but the kid did not ruin hip hop.

    As some dude mentioned before ;
    Eastcoast cats in the early 90`s said Westcoast ruined hip hop.

    So was the saying about Mc Hammer, Vanilla etc.

    Then “real hip hop heads” was saying Puff Daddy ruined hip hop in the mid 90´s .
    ( I can agree in that even though I dont feel so called “real hip hop heads”)

    Then suddenly when Dirty South blew up, “real hip hop heads” was saying that was ruining hip hop.( I dont feel that cause I love the South )

    Soulja Boy did not ruin hip hop but he is the consecvens of the “bling and all bout the money# rap which Puff Daddy made in the mid 90`s.

    If hip hop allowed a bubble gum nigga like soulja boy single handedly kill it, then what does that say about hip hop?

    Soulja Boy didn’t kill shit. Ain’t nothin wrong with young niggas makin dance music… at least they ain’t rappin about sellin dope and killin other young niggas … like how Ice T was doin back in his day. Ice T needs to shut the complete fuck up.

    • DETROIT

      i feel you, but, i have to correct you on one thing. listen to some of ice-t’s catelogue, he’s not a new wave gangster rapper, his songs actually had a lot of substance! listen to highrollers or the mind over matter if you get a chance.

  • DETROIT

    DO YOU SEE THAT PICTURE ON THE HOME PAGE? Ice-t is a 50 year old rich man, that still wears Locs ($3 gas station sunglases)! Soulja boy better shut his pie hole before he comes up missing!

  • NOLA2727

    I like ice-t, but that shit was totally out of character. Soulja boy is wack, but I feel he has his place with the kids.A lot of these new cats don’t have respect for the art. What alot of these older rappers need to do is go at some of these record companys who’s putting this shit out.Like I said Soulja Boy has his place, but the market has been flooded with this shit (snap it etc.).The game has no balance.The record labels is who ice-t should be beefin with for putting it out, but that sound to much like right.We’ll fuck over each other but we won’t fuck with master because he’s signing the checks at end of the day.The slave mind is a muthafucka.All these fuckin gangstas we got , aint none them niggas got the balls to do that shit.Soulja Boy! Get you money now because you won’t be around for to much longer.Corprate america is using you .They know you won’t have any longivity ,so they reduce to what we call a RINGTONE RAPPER!

  • e-BOL-a virus

    C’mon Bol…

    You did exactly what you called out other old folk for… called out kids like an angry old dude!

    Soulja Boy is still a kid. Rap is a part of hip-hop as much as most of us hate the fact. He’s done a heck of a lot for his age, and has people all over the world dancing. That’s a huge and great accomplishment.

    Ice T is not the right person to be calling out Soulja Boy. If someone’s going to call him out it should be someone like Common, Mos Def, or even Ghostface. No matter how wack Soulja Boy might be, it’s just pathetic that a 50 year old man on a respectable television show is calling out a 17 year old kid making music that few people over 24 are probably even buying.

Kris Kross wasn’t lyrical, Sir Mix a Lot wasn’t lyrical, its many niggas from the “Golden Age” that wasn’t lyrical. Stop trying to put hip hop in a box, its enough niggas doing the same shit right now anyway atleast he did his own shit n didn’t try to act like he Tony Montana in the hood or some shit.Let that young nigga get his shine why he can. Rappers on some real jealous shit right now cuz they ain’t producing good music so they ain’t gettin no spins!!! Make some hot shit, drop a hot album, and shut the fuck up. The ppl that’s still making good music ain’t complaining bout Souljah Boi!

    Make that money Soulja Boy and anybody from the hood knows regardless of who they are if somebody disrepects you or get in the way of you making your money then you deal with that. Keep that shit to yourself or don’t crucify the kid for responding. And Ice-T don’t have five classic shit. A whole bunch of B-films (maybe two good ones) and a few songs. DON’T GO DOWN THE LIST NAMING BULLSHIT ALBUMS. He is a legend cause been at it for a while if drops an album right now wouldn’t sell 10 000 copies if you spot him 8,000. Sticking to pimping ICE-T now that’s your lane. Tired of a old heads that have lost it disrepecting young ones. Yes Soulja Boy is horrible but let the nigga get money.

  • Just Sayin

    Not in any form a fan of soulja boy, but i aint knockin his hustle…….If makin kiddie raps is gettin him millions then more power to u….At the end of the day niggas is tryin make money for THEMSELVES to have a better quality of life, and if makin bullshit raps is gettin him there then let him do his thang without all the unnecessary hatin…By Soulja Boy even receiving a diss from Ice T shows that even though some people dont like what his music is about, he still has relevance…At the end of the day its all about doin what u gotta do to make your money, fuck the culture…..If culture really matter now adays, black wouldnt be killin blacks, and there would be no people dealin drugs in the hood…(think on it)

  • Jerod

    This isn’t 1988 anymore. Hip-hop has changed. Not for better, not for worse. It’s changed. Let’s see the hip-hop rule book and see if Soulja boy broke any of them. Oh wait, I thought rap, or music in general… didn’t have rules… Oh wait, that’s right, it doesn’t. So haters: Fuck the fuck off.

And not to mention; DJ Jazzy Jeff and the Fresh Prince. Soulja Boy does silly rap music which is nothing new. It’s finally making a comeback. Along with V.I.C. and that “Looking Boy” song.

  • Oneofthemyo’s

    From what I’ve seen most people on the comments like me feel he should do his thing (but he is trash)and the rest its either fuck ice t or fuck soulja boy,two things though;
    1)HIP HOP IS NOT DEAD(completely anyway)good shit I mean real good shit is out there but some real mc’s CANT MAKE A HIT RECORD FOR SHIT(BLU & BUDDENS for eg.) which is where these ringtone niggas come in and I do feel they R part oh hip hop in a way.
    2) Most people on here say SOULJA BOY IS FOR THE KIDS if u have your kids listening to his shit and u think its completely harmless u need to kill yourself! Come on superman that HO. Yaah BITCH Yaah, think when u were a kid if u didnt know a little 2 much grown shit kids understand some of this shit.

  • Oneofthemyo’s

    Last thing, ok single handedly no one can kill this shit but dont think he doesnt have an influence in the poisoning(kinda strong word)of it u got “pop it off boys” and prolly a couple more young’ns coming out with more shit like this.

  • J Hiebs

    I Am 17 too and I listen to Kool G Rap, Slick Rick, Rakim, Big Daddy Kane, and KRS ONE ALL DAY !!!! AND GANGSTARR!!! I love the pioneers and respect all of what they did and I do think that Soulja GIRL IS A BITCH FOR WHAT HE IS DOING TO HIP HOP AS A CULTURE..HE MAKES hip-hop look like shit….FUCK YOU SOULJA BOY I HOPE YOUR READING THIS…I mean how could you not know who the GZA is (thats why he cant spit he hasnt listened to pure rhymes like GZA’s)…Anyway these idiots getting into hip hop are in it for only the money and they’re killing it in front of our faces…..FUCK THE SOUTH DANCES TOO!

  • GSP

    i’m not a fan of soulja boy, but as a 17 yr old young man, i understand making music for your generation about the things you know. he(soulja boy) isnt rapping about pimping, gang banging, or shooting cops because thats not what he knows. it’s merely music for his culture.
    does he deserve to “eat a d**k”.
    no!
    Mr. Ice-T, whom I am a fan of, was and was not also criticized for his music as a young man. did he ruin hip-hop? no. he spoke for his generation and made music for their ears.
    i’m most certain when Ice-T was coming up, 50 yr old men criticized him for his choice word and videos. but it was hot in 80′s so thats what Ice-T did.
    So how is Soulja Boy so wrong for making music for his generation? It may not be pure hip-hop for those in their mid 20′s to late 30′s, but teenagers enjoy it.
    I dont think 35+ yr old men are supposed to like it.
    So whats the solution? Dont support it.
    But the solution is not telling a 17 yr old to eat a you know what, for rapping what he knows and providing for himself as a “high school drop out”. There are a number of great rappers that are high school drop outs, not making them less of a man.
    I congradulate soulja boy for not sitting around living off his mom, selling drugs, robbing people, or stealing from the next man. I congradulate him for making garbage music to feed himself.
    Hip-hop is alive, its much bigger than a 17 yr old who entertains other 17 yr olds and other grown ups that CHOOSE to listen to his music.
    Ice-T’s word could have been chosen a little better as the more mature adult, those words he used to another young black man provokes disrespect. Soulja Boy also could have chosen the high road instead of his word towards an elder black.
    These are only my thoughts and opinions, actually its my first time ever responding on XXL because i was so shocked at both artists comments.

    I gotta ask when will you so called hiphop heads will realize that things are not how it used to be back in the days. Open your eyes and you will see that things have changed. I think if you’re trying to make things the way they were, then it’s just futile.Im not trying to stop you from changing the game, but just ask yourselves this question before you try- Do you really think you stand a chance to make things they were before?

  • jonjon23

    You have to give soulja boy credit because he had the brains and hustle to build his own brand and also produce his own music. He’s not educated in the academic sense, that’s probably why he doesn’t come off as intelligent, but he has to be smart and driven to get where he is at 16 or 17 all by himself. Say what you want about him being a jig but how many of yall (BOL) included had the game to make themselves rich and famous as a teenager. As far as artists like Rakim, GZA, ect. being “intelligent” and “teachers”; they probably are to some of you guys but thats only because you probably don’t know that much meaningful shit yourselves. If they were so intelligent and such deep thinkers they would be earning a living as professors instead of trying to hold on to the young man’s game of rapping. I think Soulja boy’s lyrics are humorous and simple and I don’t take them serious at all. I don’t think anybody with a brain does either.

  • josh

  • Tator

    I guess Hip-Hop is dead (allegedly) because artists are capitalizing off of it. No, maybe its because people do bubble gum songs and dance to them. Did u accuse Humpty Hump, the Fresh Prince or 2 Live Crew or whoever the hell else made “dumbed down” music for destroying it? Probably not because you were too busy shaking your asses to at the time. And are we that bothered by the fact that artists are using Hip-Hop solely to create wealth? Besides the fact that music is easily accessible for no charge, older fans of the culture have to realize that our generation is the first to have this type of perspective. Give the new-jacks a chance to grow threw it or at least educate them. Anyway Soulja Boy is this visible because tv & radio programmers make him. They’re more at fault (if u want to fault someone) than the artist. SUPPORT WHO YOU WANT BUT DON’T KNOCK TH HUSTLE.

    Well said by tator. I got more respect for Ice T then Soulja boy but what you expect him to do when someone tells him to eat a dick. Clubs need music too. Sorry if nas is kinda tough to dance to.

    1 PERSON CAN’T RUIN HIPHOP. HIPHOP IS A MOVEMENT. ICE T MADE HIPHOP SOUND WEAK IF A 17 YEAR OLD CAN RUIN IT. TO EVERYBODY ELSE, STOP HATIN AND GET MONEY.

  • changeman

    1st i completely agree with Ice-t, soulja boy does suck. I wouldn’t say is killin hip-hop,cause there are so many others, however i also don’t believe that soulja boy is doing any justice for the hip-hop community as well. So he can produce and make beats that nice but when your raps are garbage than don’t get behind the mike acting like you know how to rap.

    So Fuck Soulja boy, and Hip-Hop for ever. Let us step it up, get back to some real hip-hop, listen to Nas, Nigger album some real shit. cop it if your a true hip-hop fan.

  • truth

    Let’s be honest. Soulja boy is right on this one. Ice-T has no business telling this young man to go eat a dick. Soulja boy has a right to defend himself. No one really got on fif after he went at shine or any of the people fif goes after, but because that nigga’s “hard ” he’s legit.
    Soulja boy isn’t the one we need to blame for the death of hip hop. Let’s be real. Niggas have been killin hip hop slowly for the past 6/7 years. Let’s run down the list. Ying Yang Twins, Young Jeezy, D4L, Dem Franchise Boys, Lil Jon and the east side boys, Young Joc, Crime Mob, hell even 50 to a certain extent. The point is it’s not just Soulja boy who is “single handedly” killing hip hop, it’s a combination of factors. True, Soulja boy’s music is not of the highest quality, but is anyone really going to tell me that the niggas from the above list are true artists? Let’s be real. The game has turned into making money more than making art, don’t blame Soulja boy.

  • real chic

    ice-t is too old to be arguing with soulja boy. people are saying how he’s ruining hiphop because he’s popular. soulja boy is not hip hop, he’s crunk & b, duh! just because the media calls him hiphop doesnt mean hes in that category. Did anyone realize that he’s a little kid doing little kis rhymes, hellooo. Ice-T looks like a damn fool and a hater to be concerned about soulja boy, is he bored or something. What’s his point? He needs to woory about being a sellout for dating a white plastic barbie.

    not a fan of Soulja boy, but the article fails to include a central part of his claim: that Ice T use some of his money and establish a school of preservation for “real” hip-hop or quit commenting on other people who are relevant (even though that may not extend beyond a year or so). the author of this article is a fuckin’ yo-yo for this pseudo-journalistic trash

  • gruber

    I Feel Hip Hop should have a balance. I think we need cats like Soulja Boy but we also need Cats like Common And Jay z And we need cats like 50 and Nas also and Ice Cube and legends like Kane and Krs and Tribe. I think We need to just let everybody do their thing. Soulja Boy music attract that College Crowd and the party people. I say just let everybody do their thing if you don’t like his music don’t bother to listen I’m not a fan of his music but I don’t knock fans who buy it because thats their taste thats their taste. That is what is wrong with the world everybody think you have to be the same if God wanted it like that wouldn’t everything be the same? I let dude do his thing as a black man it’s good to see brothas getting money so no hate from me. I want to see more of us get money and give back and help others in the community so they can get there also. Let a kid enjoy life and lets stop letting coporate america divide us because thats what they did to our music and that is what corporate america want they are only dealing with hip hop because it’s a billion dollar industry now. I hope we as artist stop falling into the trap of attacking each other.

    This shit remind me of that scene in Baby Boy where Jody and his boy caught the young mother fuckers at the park drinkin his Alize bottle and started whoppin his ass with the belt talkin about ‘respect your elders’ HAHA.
    Real shit though I don’t even know y souljah mentioned GZA. GZA made one of the top 10 hip hop albums ever with Liquid Swords.

    IF you’re watchin a basketball game,and the coach sits the starters and plays the second string the WHOLE game,would that be a game,you’d REALLY wanna watch ?? There’s nothing wrong with these lil niggas makin these records,but when these sencond and 3rd string rappers become the main ones playing the game,then of course it becomes a problem..If there wasn’t the money to be made in hip hop like there is,these niggas wouldn’t even be in it..It’s not like the labels care if these niggas actually stay in this game long…everybody’s so worried about gettin money that they forgot about actually rappin

    This is what you cats in Soulja Boys corner don’t realize. To those of us who like real hiphop wit good lyrics and dope beats, Soulja Boy is the symbol of whats wrong wit hip hop these days. Straight up, there’s NO LYRICS whatsoever. His songs are just 5 minute long hooks! I guess this is where hiphop was movin for the last few years anyway though, wit so much hits bein based on hooks. Now you have a dude who makes songs that’s nothin but a god damn hook! lmao! Oh and by the way, his beats is wack too. And people that point this shit out is supposedly “haters” cuz the dudes gettin money and shit? I don’t get it. Get your money Soulja Boy, I aint hatin on anybody gettin money. If America likes wack shit like this, it’s whatever, sell it. But it is wack. For real though, hip hop isn’t dead despite wack ass…. uhhhh rappers, emcees? What is this guy anyway? He’s not a rapper because he doesn’t rap really? He just yells shit on the mic? What do you call someone like Soulja Boy? A DJ that doesn’t DJ? Anyway hip hop is back in the streets where it belongs, still thrivin in the South, in New York, in Detroit, in Philly, out West, every city, every country, EVERYWHERE. That’s where you’ll find the real artists these days. Suburban America doesn’t like real hiphop anymore. So what? Underground, independent labels, your local spot, dudes is still cypherin in circles outside the clubs. You still got a good number of dope rappers on the majors gettin play on radio, so it’s cool. Still though Soulja Boy should go eat a dick or somethin man, lol shits wack as hell, if yall sensitive asses cant handle the truth than its whatever, I bump what I wanna bump, you can go blast that wack ass shit out your car if you want. And for those of you dissin a legend like Ice T….. COLORS you dumbass mothafuckaz!

    ^Yeah, here we go again. If you point out a wack artist, you a “hater”. Because he’s makin money and 17 years old? Still don’t get it. It’s hatin when its for no good reason: if you jealous of a dude on top, makin money when you not I guess, etc. These days you say somethin bad about anybody, its must be hatin. Fuck outta here. This aint hate, this is truth. Soulja Boy is wack: his lyrics is straight garbage. An artist is either rappin or singin, otherwise it’s just talkin and cussin over a hype ass beat. The Soulja Girl does neither. He can’t rap, he spits like 4 bars and falls back on his hook, no internal rhymes, flow (if you can call it that) is the same every track, no punchlines. He’s just talking over a beat with a little rhythm and an army of background dancers.

      The jig is an Irish dance actually. Check up on your history before you start to comment on people you think that ‘won’t understand’ like you said. Any people who were considered ‘immigrants’ at any point in this country’s history faced hatred. Like the things my great grandfather faced as a first generation American in the early 1900′s. I.N.N.A.(Irish Need Not Apply) signs in the windows of businesses looking for workers or the pig snouts drawn on faces of Irish people in newspaper cartoons at the time. Or go watch Gangs of New York. If your on the West Coast you know the hatred Mexicans are facing right now over immigration. Or if you’ve never been to a reservation go check out how fucked up Indians live before you start feeling sorry for yourself. They got fucked more than any culture in this countries history.

    The people that are on soulja boy’s case should check themselves. (I understand why Ice T is–he just wants to stir up controversy for publicity). But the average person spewing hate saying soulja boy is garbage and that he is killing hip hop should just not listen to him. Problem solved! I think his songs are humorous and catchy but I don’t look to rap songs for education, becuase a vast majority of rappers didn’t even graduate high school. Hell even “the genius teacher/rapper Nas didn’t graduate high school but Alabama “coon” Rich Boy was enrolled in the engineering program at Tuskegee. If you looking to get educated from a rapper and not a book your gonna be dumb forever.
