Soulja Boy: “Nas Killed Hip-Hop”
In a video that recently hit the net, teen rap sensation Soulja Boy accused Queensbridge vet Nas of killing hip-hop.
The obscenity-laced clip finds a shirtless SB eating take out with his SOD crew, explaining why Esco should have thought twice before saying “hip-hop was dead.” “Real talk the nigga that killed hip-hop for real is Nas, dawg,” he said. “He came out publicly and said hip-hop is dead, and then after that everybody start saying [it]. Cause think about it, if Nas woulda never said hip-hop is dead then mofuckers woulda never thought it died. They woulda never had that terminology.” [Watch Below]
SB, who has been blamed for killing hip-hop by Ice-T, believes that when Nas named his 2006 Def Jam debut Hip-Hop is Dead, he became responsible for ruining rappers’ financial situations. “He came out with that shit and fucked up everybody’s money,” SB complained. “He killed his own career with that shit. He shoulda thought about it.”
“You know how they say George Bush fucked up America, it’s the same way with Nas did with hip-hop,” he continued.
This video comes just two weeks after the Atlanta based rapper dropped his sophomore CD iSouljaboytellem. As XXLmag.com previously reported SB took a big hit in his first week sales last Wednesday (12/24) selling a mere 45,000 disc as compared to last year’s Souljaboytellem.com which sold 117,000 in its debut week. –Elan Mancini
