Soulja Boy does something ignorant, apologizes
Remember Soulja Boy's "Rich Nigga Shit" series of videos? There was that one where he blew his nose with some money and tossed it in a Louis Vuitton trash can, and that one where he gave one of his weed carriers $10,000 to down a fifth of Patron. I featured pretty much all of them on my blog. It could very well end up being the only thing Soulja Boy does that I like, unless he uses some of that immense fortune of his to produce some pr0n, like Drake has.
Alas, Soulja Boy had to put the series on hold, after some goons realized what nouveau riche housing development he lived in and promptly ran up in his crib. I consulted the Google just now, to see if I really did once witness something so ignorant, and I see the original series of videos have all been removed from YouTube. And if you notice, this new one was filmed in a hotel room. Damn.
Just like that townhouse he used to live in, the hotel room in the new Rich Nigga Shit is surprisingly not very nice. The one I had this past one - one of those extended stay joints with its own kitchen and what have you (my parents paid, natch) - was way nicer. The TV in Soulja Boy's room looks like the one my parents had back in the late '80s/early '90s, i.e around the time Soulja Boy was born.
His room does have a jacuzzi though. I wonder if he specifically requested that, to bang broads in. Nah, right? It's probably because he's in a motel, aka a sleep n' fuck. If you notice, there's never any women in these Soulja Boy videos, just guys. If I was 19, and I had millions of dollars to just throw away, there'd be hoo-ers all over the place. I'd have a hoo-er I'd pay to follow me around with a bucket of fried chicken, in case I get hungry.
But I digress.
The real focal point of the new Rich Nigga Shit is Soulja Boy's new chain, with a diamond studded remote control Lamborghini medallion. He sets it down and drives it along the edge of the jacuzzi, to show that it really is a remote control car. Then he hops down into the jacuzzi and realizes there's already a little bit of water in it. Or was that something else?
I guess people gave him a lot of shit about it on Twitter or whatever (I've been out of the office for like five days straight, so who knows), so he struck back with a lengthy, butthurt blog post. I found it over on Teh Gyant's new blog, Gyant Unemployed, and there's no link to where he found it, so I'm assuming Soulja Boy sent it to him exclusively. I'll also take this as further evidence Soulja Boy is a closet case.
An excerpt, for your reading pleasure, and for the sake of not working very hard:
1ST OF ALL. I didn’t pay ANYTHING for my black Lamborghini chain I got it FREE as a birthday present from my jeweler when I turned 19 on July 28!
2ND OF ALL. Even if I did pay for it who are you to judge me on what I purchase with MY money?
3RD OF ALL. Why do the media blow up the things that they think will make me look stupid or ignorant. Why not publicize or put me in the spotlight when I do positive things?
The third point goes on and on and on, about how the media never mentions when he gives money and food to poor people, how no one stepped in when Ice T threatened to sic the Crips on him, and how his ignorance should be excused, because he never lived in a nice neighborhood until he was 16, especially that last part.
Soulja Boy says the reason he flaunts his lifestyle so much is because he had such an impoverished upbringing, i.e. the Asher Roth theory of black conspicuous consumption, but you get the idea it goes way deeper than that. If I had that kind of money to throw away, I could give a rat's ass if anyone knew about it, but I could also give a rat's ass if people were salty about me balling during a recession. I thought the whole point of these videos was to make people feel jealous?
