NEWS: Soulja Boy Thanks Slave Masters: “Without Them, We’d Still Be In Africa”
And the controversy continues for Soulja Boy. The teen sensation recently put his foot in his mouth during a BET’s Black Carpet interview.
As reported on his blog, Black Carpet‘s Toure, who conducted the interview, decided to shake things up a bit by quizzing rappers like Soulja Boy and Juelz Santana with part of the Proust questionnaire. Per Toure, SB was dumbfounded when asked what historical figures he hated the most. When told other rappers listed Osama Bin Laden, Adolf Hitler and the slave masters, SB responded with praise.
“Shout out to the slave masters,” SB told Toure. “Without them we’d still be in Africa. We wouldn’t be here to get this ice and tattoos.”
The shocker comes on the heel of SB’s feud with Ice-T. The quarrel started when the West Coast legend accused SB of single-handedly killing hip-hop. –Bruce Moses
