Soulja Boy Claims Nas Actually Killed Hip Hop

Okay. So it’s Nas AND the President’s fault Soulja Boy’s going triple plastic this time around?

“See how George Bush fucked up America? Same way what Nas did with Hip-Hop.”Soulja Boy Tellem, S.O.D. Money Gang Roundtable Vlog, Pt. 1 via WSHH

The quote above is just one of several bass ackward, ass-ignorant assertions made by hip-hop’s “Kang of the Internet.”

[Blogger’s Note: Sorry, Puffy.]

Soulja Boy’s clearly been reading the color-by-number edition of The Secret. Hip-hop’s favorite misguided youth is partly correct regarding the notion of accomplishment beginning with belief and perhaps vocal recognition. You’ve got to visualize your goal before you can make it into a reality. I’m pretty sure in 2005 or so, SB wanted nothing more than to be eating takeout catfish and chips with a table full of yes boys in a big ass house with ice and tattoos and shit.

Here he is… For now.

When the rapster checks stop coming in and the Charles Hamilton beef results in a disappointing 40-unit sales spike, I guess it’s time to turn the camera on and let loose on a bigger target. Fortunately for SB, Nas would never stoop so low as to etherize a child. (Though, being that Nas loves the word “coon” more than I do, that shit would probably be fucking hilarious.)

When Soulja finally got to the part where he blames Nas for no one having enjoyed such horrendous showering monkey anthems as “Turn My Swag Onnnnnnn” and “Berrrrd Wawlk,” I had a Training Day Denzel moment.

“You disloyal, bitchmade fool-ass nigga!”

Let me preface all of this by reminding Soulja Boy and those like him that Nas is one of those early-nineties pioneers that cemented hip-hop’s place in the mainstream. In doing so, he played a major role in providing opportunity for the kind of slave who wouldn’t leave the plantation even if freed to babble about sneakers and magically-delicious blood diamonds and shit. I’m sure that’s not what he had in mind, but still—he did that for you.

Well, Nas and the slave masters. Let’s not forget the slave masters’ contributions.

As far as SB’s interpretation of The Secret goes, no one believed Ice T when he said SB killed hip-hop. Ice was vocal than a motherfucker, yet most blogs sided with Tellem. I ruled their beef a draw and suggested they take ten paces, turn and throw spent condoms at Coco’s ass–but that’s just me. Soulja must be one of them niggas who believes that if he turns the bathroom light out and says “Biggie Smalls” in the mirror a few times, he’ll get shot by a gangsta rapper.

Which would be fucking AWESOME!!!

[Blogger's Note: He already looks like Plaxico, jr. Why not stunt like his daddy?]

I believe Parlae of Dem Franchize Boyz said he’d end Lil Wayne’s career in battle. I don’t think anyone took that shit seriously. Now he’s burning hunnid stacks for warmth while Lil Wayne is the biggest rap star on the planet.

Eli Porter said he “da bess!” There’s not a living soul who has seen his battle with Envy and believes as much, despite dude having perhaps the world’s greatest front-tuck.

On the other side of the schilling, our “Kang of the Internet” has arguably been the year’s most vocal rapster. WHY?! He says it today, but there wouldn’t be much argument if he seriously staked such a claim. WHY?! He’s not “Kang of the Internets” because he said he is. WHY?! He’s “Kang” because he went out there and made it fucking happen with dozens of cinematic embarrassments and triumphant witty retorts alike. Unfortunately for him—and hilarious for us–he’s only sold about 37 copies of iSouljaBoy to date.

WHY?!

I almost died when Soulja threwXBOX is Dead” out there. That nigga better be careful with his examples and analogies. I’m pretty sure that’s his worst nightmare come true. I’m surprised he said it aloud. He prolly shoulda thunk on that a little more. I’m about ready to toss Sonic Unleashed out the window right now.

[Blogger’s Note: Sonic Unleashed is NOT the new Charles Hamilton album. I promise. You could see the horror on Arab’s face. “Noooo! XBOX ain’t deeead! Don’t say shit like that! *sniffle*”]

The ceiling of such offhand verbal influence as that to which Soulja Boy refers is proportionate with the influence of the speaker. However, rarely are the two commensurate. At the end of the day, dude’s just an entertainer. People respect Nas, but he hasn’t inspired anyone to do anything they otherwise wouldn’t in a long-ass time. With that said, were iSouljaBoy, [see what I did there?] I’d be worried about my own waning influence.  The yes boys are here now, but when dude has to go on VH1 and do Soulja of Love in a couple of years, Arab and them won’t be around.

They’re chilling now, so long as the fish and chips keep coming. They’ll finally split for good when they realize they can live off Beefaroni on their own without having to lick any baboon balls. That day may not be too damn far away as Arab’s already had to sell his hair. Note V.I.C., the only member of Shitty Money Gang to have a legitimate hit record since 2007, is nowhere to be found.

His niggas in the back and they rollin up a Phillayyyyy.

Negro, please. Nas hasn’t killed anything but Jay-Z (on record). Niggas don’t think hip-hop is dead because of a Nas album title. They been sayin that shit. That Magic School Bus edition MacBook is the gateway to all the information in the world. It’s useful for far more than bookmarking WorldStarHipHop and the fucking hoodie store.

Soulja Boy need stick to choreographing juvenile dance routines as opposed to–er, umm–round table discussions.

Questions? Comments? Requests? Gettin silly? ron@ronmexicocity.com

P.S.: Anyone else excited that this very well be the last time we ever have to address Soulja Boy?

P.P.S.: Anyone else see the irony in Soulja Boy’s laptop looking like a school bus?

    What up Mexx…

    Damn, no need for NaS to ether son because you did it your damn self. Wow.

    I am ecstatic that is (could be) the final time SB is addressed. I mean, next week he could release a video saying that Run-DMC and Public Enemy were bad for hip-hop and Rakim should step his rhyme game up so you never know.

    Oh, one more thing. “Nas hasn’t killed anything but Jay-Z (on record).” Truer words have never been spoken.

    It’s possible the best Negro Please of the year was the final one.

    When I saw the headline I knew you had internet bitch slap a nigga for the fuckery he is.

    Soulja must one of them niggas who believes that if he turns the bathroom light out and says “Biggie Smalls” in the mirror a few times, he’ll get shot by a gangsta rapper.

    Nice South Park reference, but I ain’t watched it in a while.

    Commentors Note: What’s wrong with Sonic Unleashed, I’ve been palying it since christmas on the Wii. And I think it’s a big improvement from all those shitty Sonic remakes Sega has been trying to shove down us.

    • http://www.ronmexicocity.com Ron Mexico

      sonic unleashed is a great game. i was really impressed with that shit. i was just saying… i’m gonna toss the xbox out the window because soulja happened to say that it’s dead.

      glad you caught that south park ref, homie.

      • Bobo D

        Ohhh, my bad.

        I heard SB is getting some video game made about him, what shit is that. That is the worst idea since they made Mario bros. into a movie. If the game does materliaze ,and I pray to God not, I’m sure he’ll be wiping Bill Gates X-Box tattoed ass in no time.

        But I was supprised that SB could use the word “terminology” in the correct context. I’s dought dem dropot niccas did not pays attsens ins classs.

    Thank God I wasn’t the only one to do the Eli Porter pause when I saw the dude had a YELLOW, not just yellow, CANARY YELLOW, laptop. I have questions and concerns. Why not blue? Why not black? Grey? My son wouldn’t even pick yellow and he’s like six. I digress…

    Yes I realize that he just basically buried his own dam* self. What’s even funnier is his album will still be at certified pewter even after calling Nasty Nas out…*laughs wickedly like Megatron*

    Soulja Boy used to be an enigmatic figure to me until this statement. The nigga is a Hater plain and simple, but unlike most haters his enemy is not the sucessful. No his beef is with intelligence! If you read anything other than BangBros captions you’re a target.

  • Matt Herbz

    Word up. I laughed when I saw this video… A buncha little niggaz sitting around mom’s kitchen eating out some take-out trays. Anyone knows that Hip Hop died long before Nas’ CD. We’d been saying it for a while, just nobody’d listen. Now, I try no to be a hater, but I’m loving the fact that Soulja Girl only did 40K in the first week…shit, that’s not even 1% of the Metro-Atlanta area population. Home-field advantage it ISN’T.

    Mex my man, I knew you would address this issue the right way. Classic post to end the year. Cheers.

    Illmatic didn’t cement hip hop in the mainstream. I didn’t sell when it first dropped but it did inspire a generation. A record like Ready to Die cemented hip hop in the mainstream as wll as inspire.

    SB has a point to a degree. Nas is so influential him saying HHID kinda killed it for some heads to the point the South started saying Hip Hop aint Dead…

    • Pierzy

      Yeah, but It Was Written DID help cement hip-hop in the mainstream. “If I Ruled The World” was an enormous hit.

  • DBlock

    I knew this was coming. Way to let this annoying-ass child know that he just shit his diaper.

    Although… I’ll be interested to see if the outrage for these asnine comments will exceed the umbrage taken in regard to this peaknuckle-head’s “ice and tattoos” remark.

    NaS is my fave MC of all-time… but this ADDickHead should’ve been put on timeout a looong time ago.

    I wonder how KRS and 50 feel about iSouljaBoy now?

    Actually… I know how 50 feels. He’s got an album on the way, so he’ll probly agree with the dirt merchant and toss in a couple shots of his own for good measure.

    But at least with 50, you know where his motivations lie. The scary shit about Mr. Tellem is that he’s being sincere.

  • Michael

    @ALL Dae. Illmatic didn’t cement Hip Hop in the mainstream but IT Was Written did. It was one of the First Hip Hop albums to have a sustained stay at Number one, it was also one of the first Hip Hop albums to sell a substantial amount of records overseas. It was Written doesn’t get the credit it deserves as an influential album.

  • geico lizard

    Killer mike said hip hop is dead before Nas did so soulja boy is looking for any excuse to not get dropped by his label. Music choice said Arab and soulja boy were born in the same hospital on the same day so i think those two “life partners” will be together even when they end up as homeless guys on the street with nothing but diddy’s ipods (No Skip Bayless on reading soulja boy facts).

  • geico lizard

    Hey ron on a much more important topic why does espn have so many ugly women working at the network? They did a split screen with Linda”horseteeth” cohn and erin”big ass nose but actually hot compared to other women on that channel” andrews and it looked like a before and after picture for plastic surgery. Espn needs to recruit some of those former beauty queens foxnews has working for them because its hard to watch and listen to some of those fugly broads.

    soulja boy is the new dmx.

    Think about it, dmx was hte most random, multi-personality-having motherfucker ever. One day he’s challenging dudes to pushups on video, rapping about raping children and getting busted for crack in half the states, while the next, he’s becoming a pastor?

    same with soulja boy…

    one day he’s just an innocent kid doing a homosexual dance, feeding his brainded bape great dame named arab dog food and vowing to not swear because he’s an influence to kids, while the next, he’s starting shit with rappers, thanking slave masters for giving him gold and giving out crack money to various hobos in the great state of georgia

  • http://j-mace.deviantart.com Shawty J

    Soulja Boy, what are we gonna do wit this nigga? We give em an inch and he takes a foot. Charles Hamilton got at this kid with no provocation, Soulja Boy goes back at him, and we give him a pass. Now Soulja Boy has lost it again.
    Now, obviously this isn’t as bad as Soulja Boy pole-jocking massa for providing him with an opportunity to get iced and tatted, but still. Soulja Boy is just plain dumb, he doesn’t even keep up with the times. The Hip-Hop is Dead movement was done and over with by the time Soulja Boy’s first album came out.
    Lil Minstrel is just angry nobody wants to “Turn their swag on” to him and in return he’s doing the same thing he criticized Charles Hamilton for. “Nas killed Hip-Hop” Damn, if Lil Minstrel would’ve picked up a music magazine or watched MTV he would’ve noticed record sells are dropping, regardless of genre. Apple killed Hip-Hop, SB get with the times, or get lost.
    Lord knows I’d prefer for you to do the latter.

  • tony grand$

    In a nutshell, he’s acting his age, & prolly feels that the hiphop community has been abusin him for so long that now its time for a hissy fit. To me, dude’s been becoming unglued since the beginning of the summer. When he pissed off a balcony, I thought “okay, this kid needs a timeout”.

    Maybe he’s under the impression that he’s survived a couple of word wars, sold some records, made a name for himself, so now he should have earned our respect. Ill admit, I gotta kick outta him for awhile, fuck it, who doesn’t love the underdog. But, I’m rather partial to schizophrenic, egomaniacs who don’t appreciate the tree from which they fell (no kanye west). This guys a fuckin idiot……

    Now, he blames hip hops death on his momental failure as an *ahem* artist. Foh! I was @ the funeral, I aint see that scrawny lil nigga readin the obituary. He was playin freeze tag with Bow Wow & Omarion in the parking lot.

    He don’t even know who/what hip hop is, he hangs around with its 3rd cousin rap music. One of the blunt rollers he hangs with should tell em (pun intended) to Wiki himself, & see that, dead or alive, he has no place in hip hop. Never has. I hope Kelis whups his ass on GP.

    Great read to end the year off Soulja Bitch is a clown straight up man don’t talk about hip hop being dead when your everything hip hop is not smh go suck Arabs dick while he palms your ass and that other dude tapes it loooooool.

    On a side note Happy New Year everybody be safe out there!!

    Please stop the stan like behavior for 2008,Nas is not above criticism even from a lyrical/musical retard like soulja boy, hell soulja boy would be gone already if stupid hiphop stans didn’t keep propping his cloud up by giving him attention. Soulja boy is mindless dance music and Nas is commercial/pseudo intelligent music. Soulja boy is reacting more to the fact that ya’ll treated him like he mattered when everyone knows that dance music is the most disposable of all the music forms. Just look how quick dance fad changes. Dance music is just a means to a end i.e. a method to get people having a good time on the dance floor. These hip-hop police stan fucks take the medium waaaaay tooo seriously at the wrong times. Face it you will never get rid of mindless dance music evvvveeerrrr. If it ain’t soulja boy it will be someone else it’s needed folks want to dance and be silly. Our job is to support the more thoughtful artists we love and make sure they can sustain a career so we get what we want. Not cry and gripe like some bitch made jerks everytime a little prick runs off at the mouth. Really people what is an ant to a gaint.
