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

When I was working for the Crip Wing @ Death Row Records Nas looked @ me after I ate my Chiccen Sandwiches he said “It Aint Hard To Tell” I immediatly went in on his bitch ass because he didn’t tell me I had Mayo on my mouth! One time it was Me, George Clooney, & Will Smith @ the Strip Club big upping Crips throwing up our Crip Affiliations And Nas comes up bitching about how much his fingers Hurt! I smacced the shit outta him and forced him to Buy the Crips protecting Jesse Jaccson Papa John’s Pizza, I said, “If you see the bottom of my LA Gears Flashing nigga you better run for your bitch ass life!” They started to flash but it was to late! Craig Macc Had to pull me off him! Preme was scared shitless of Me! ECG-UNIT CRIP 4 LIFE SPIDER LOC 4 LIFE!

  • FLOSS

    The minute i give the kid credit for something now he makes me regret it.

    But he is right nobody was saying hip hop was dead till Nas said it but that doesnt mean he killed. But any Nas fan would know he himself has threatened to destroy hip hop all by himself many times. But all in all SB is way outta his lane on this one

    • http://xxlmag j da b stuy reppa

      Nas wasn’t the first person to say it. Andre from Outkast use to say it too. Along wit many other hip hop artist and fans. Nas just publicized it. As for SB if he was to step his rap game up people such as Nas wouldn’t b saying it in the first place.

    • Jamal7Mile

      Remember Rappin Duke? Da Ha Da Ha? (lol)

      Didn’t he have a line talking about how rap would die after his record dropped???

      “Now Kurtis Blow and Run-DMC/you haven’t heard of rap til ya heard it from me/ I’m the baddest rapper in history/ and they’ll be no more after me/ Da Haaaa da haaaa”

      He was another retard with a hit record…

  • $ykotic

    AND Nas gave dude props for his grind last year.

    Shorty can’t complain cause he ate AFTER God’s son said it.

    SB’s yes men look kinda hungry huh?

    Arab do yourself a favor and go to school brah. You will be better off in life.

    SB do a Tevin Campbell and disappear from the game. You got enough bread to live very well.

  • Curtis75Black

    Note to Soulja Boy, Don’t shit on a artist who actually gave to you props for being you. When Kanye made that comparison, Nas agreed !! He probably was High but he did agree. On another note, don’t try to take on a emcee if you can’t make a Hit better than your last and the artist wackest track.

    If you was a fan that took that “Hip Hop is Dead” statement as face value, you’re an idiot. It was all about sparking conversation, which it did.

Now instead of the youth knowing that Nas, one of the best to ever do it will think Nas—-In the words of Kanye West, Is on S.B’s level….Damn, the youth today.

    HIPHOP IS DEAD FOR REAL FOR HAVING A YOUNG NIGGA LIKE S.O.B. OUT THERE!

  • http://myspace.com/therealsanity Sanity

    Soulja Boy made some legit points, but at the end of the day what one individual says is not the truth. Sad, but true.

    Lil Wayne says he is the “Best Rapper Alive” because he said so? And now a bunch of people are so ignorant to believe that? Go ask Talib, Outkast, Jay-Z, Kanye, Lupe, The Game, anyone else in the rap game who is the best rapper alive. It won’t be Wayne. It, might be Lil Wayne is the best right now, but to whose standards?

    Nas made a statement in “Hip Hop is Dead.” So therefore he automatically killed it? No. That statement does not create truth, action does. His statement was making conversation to enlighten the ignorant fans and rappers, i.e. Soulja Boy, about how Hip Hop is “dead.”

    Then Obama. Obama sparked the message of change as did Wayne and Nas about their topics. The people responsible for making the change he talked about, was who? The people who voted.

    So Soulja Boy, do some research. Understand the situation of what you are talking about. Just stop recording your conversations and think about it before you actually do record it. Keep doing your thing, but at the end of the day who ever killed Hip Hop is those who listen to the music and push it to popularity…

    The fans.

    i dont say solider boy is 100 percent right i dont belive that nas is the sole reason everyones losing money i do belive its because of a thing called the recession that everyone from me to hova has been hit by but i do think that he is correct in the sense that hiphop isnt alive its kind of big actually just not the ny cali hoodshit u used 2 hear its evolved and since nas decided 2 come out n say it why because he was irrevalant til that point and now everyone to their momma says it but still street shit is still out there i dont listen 2 radio i listen 2 alot of street rap and its not hard to not listen 2 lil wayne if you dont like him

    As hard it is 2 defend this guy but ima gonna do it. he comments make sum sense cuz yall dumb ass fans do crown wayne as best rapper alive(I DONT KNO Y). TI is the king of the south(I DONT KNO Y CUZ LUDA IS). but i dont blame rappers 4 the state of hip hop. i blame the fans 4 buyin the bulllshit they put out. 1 rapper cant destroy hip hop. Fans allow rappers 2 b fake in their rhymes when they shouldnt b. U think if wayne claim 2 b a gangster in his rhymes in the 90s sum1 would have called his ass out on dat shit. but the so called old heads lik jayz n nas allow that shit 2 happen n would hop on 1 of his songs jus 2 sell out. N TI, how in the hell can u do a 1-800-call-cops commercial n still b allow 2 b gansta in ur songs. I cant blame soulja boy 4 anythin besides bein stupid. he used the pathetic rap game 2 get rich. n he neva claim 2 b a gangsta or b the best rapper alive in his songs. N if sum1 told yall 2 make a bullshit rap CD n I’ll give u a million dollars yall would do it 2(DONT LIE).so how in he hell did soulja boy kill hip hop? how bout yall blame bullshit magazines n corporations n hip hop kings(jayz n nas) 4 allowin this shit 2 go on.

    • Chris S

      very nice.

      i actually agree with the point that soulja boy says about Wayne and TI saying they are the best in their rap categories. poorly educated people will believe what they hear.

      for example, if Jimmie Johnson told me he was the best NASCAR driver alive, i’d probably believe him cuz i don’t really know a damn thing about the topic.

    Thank you I had to get all the way to bottom of these comments 4 somebody to defend lil buddy. He might not of said it in the right way he was just high and talkin to his niggas but the lil dude kindof had a point I can c where he cummin from. Rappers are prolly some of the most influential people in the world not to mention the black community. So when Nas said that shit he had grown ass men like yeah it is dead. Lil Wayne say he the best rapper alive and young niggas is like yeah he is the best. But even he’ll say its Jay so niggas need to stop lettin other niggas make they mind up 4 em. And just for further info.. Hip hop aint dead but lets just say it was if hip hop was dead, crap as niggas on the mike aint kill hip A&R’s and record execs who keep on signing crap ass niggas wit mikes killed hip hop. All these old niggas be hollerin hip hop is dead and they generation is the 1 whos killin it. these 40 yr old niggas finally save up enough money to get a label or get promoted to A&R. They start signing these niggas trying to make a quick buck. Since the begining of rap its been crap ass niggas tryin to rap now they just signing these niggas and not worrying about artist developement or any kind of message that they can present.

    Hip hop artists like Nas still represent hip hop in it’s true essence which includes style and technique. Unfortunately, Soulja Boy and Lil Wayne represent a redefining of hip hop and it’s not being redefined well. Their style of hip hop represents laziness and gimmicks which dies out eventually only to be replaced by more of the same foolishness they help create and market. Therefore, IMO, they represent a dying breed of hip hop. I can’t wait to hear Nas’ response to this foolishness. Will he take the higher ground? Time will tell.

  • MAKAVELLI

    REAL TALK. THE NIGGA MIGHT BE YOUNG BUT HE JUST EXPOSED NIGGAS LIKE NAS , ICE T AND THE RZA!!! HIP HOP ISN’T JUST ABOUT NEW YORK RAP BECAUSE JUST BEING HONEST THE SOUTH WAS ALWAYS THERE EVEN WHEN THE B.I.G AND 2 PAC HAD IT ON LOCK!!! SCARFACE HAS ALWAYS BEEN THERE ALONG WITH OUTKAST MASTER P ETC!!!! PERSONALLY I AM NOT A SOULJA BOY FAN BUT YOU HAVE TO GIVE IT TO HIM HE DO HAS SOME GOOD MUSIC THAT SELLLS IN THIS TYPE OF MARKET( MEANING BOOTLEGGING). SO STOP HATING BECAUSE REGARDLESS OF WHAT A FEW THINK THIS BOY WILL BE AROUND FOR A WHILE!! MAKE SURE YALL CHECK OUT THAT NEW CRACK ALBUM BY ZRO!!! MIDDLE GA STAND UP!!!!!!!!

  • Rodjilius

    he dont even understand or he might be tryin to make his name bigger but after nas said dat he got hip hop moving again everybody wanted to prove that it’s not dead

  • Jamal7Mile

    This nigger said WHAT?!?!

    I used to ignore the earlier shit he said because I would attribute it to him being young and stupid, etc. Never jumped on his ass like Ice-T rightfully did. RELUCTANTLY reasoned that he was joking about the slavemaster quote and told myself… maybe it didn’t come out his mouth the way he wanted it to. Chalked up the snotty c-note vids to youth…

    But now I can’t do it no more.

    Without even reading what I’m sure are verbal death wishes above the comment box I’m typing in right now (and after a speechless spell) I gotta say Solda Boy (misspelled soldier on purpose cause he ain’t one) I’m doubtful of you making it to the end of the new year. You are a, ahem, musician who get more REAL LIVE DEATH THREATS than you get criticism for your crappy music. I am a reasonable, rational, non-violent, 34 year old Black man surrounded by “non-violent” peers who can’t wait to lay hands on you!!

    Aiight, maybe I shouldn’t have typed that… but I ain’t gon backspace over it either. I won’t even print what my VIOLENT associates want to do to you.

    Nigger, you… (inhale, exhale)…

    NAS KILLED HIP-HOP???? Is that what this nigger said??? I ain’t called nobody a nigger in a long time. Who is your manager and why does he let you say things like this? He need his ass beat too!!

    There are other dumb niggers in this world too but what make you DANGEROUS is that you gotta fanbase who listen to the shit you say. Aren’t you tired of hearing people call you Stoooopit McDooopit??!

    Fuck, I can’t even go on anymore. If I did, this post would be 70 times as large as it is right now.

    Yung Berg got schooled for steppin’ into Detroit sideways. I can’t imagine what would happen to you if you stepped outside to get the morning paper, simple nigger.

    Shit, I’m done…

      @gkid123,
      Cosign that shit. Its super lowkey, niggas don’t kno, but that whole sample line from “BRA” hook goes “the best rapper alive, since the best rapper retired”.

      Weez was talkin bout Jigga right after he said he’s retiring from rap. Then they started fuckin with each other bcuz of the “Carter” name.

  • MChexOhhSooRetroo

    Although his rhymes are terrible, what hes sayin is right.

    So his album sold bad and how the nigga starting random ass beef?

  • QMAC

    Soulja Boi is jus mad because every album he puts out is a dissapointment and Nas keeps coming with classics!

  • Shawty J

    Nas didn’t kill Hip-Hop, nor create the term. That term has been around for a while. Nas exploited the term and it didn’t kill his career. Soulja Boy has a habit of talking out of his ass.

  • http://www.rapaveli.com Ambition-1

    I agree with the little dumb motherfucker for once. If hip hop is dead then go in the studio and revive it! That’s all there is to it. All you overzealous critics can miss me with all that internet gang bangin shit because you and I both know I’m right.

  • balaramesh

    soulja boy should never be allowed to say “hip hop” or “nas” in his life. he lacks respect for both hip hop and rap. now, after catching a SEVERE BRICK, he goes and talks crap about probably the BEST LYRICIST EVER, nas.

  • yessir

    Before the album even came out NAS said that the street helped him name the album HIP HOP IS DEAD.

    That means that people were saying “HIP HOP IS DEAD” already before the album actually came out.

    Ain’t got nothin’ to do wit old school, new school

    This about us, this our thing, ‘knaw’sayin’?
    This came from the gut, from the blood, from the soul
    Right here man, this is our thing man
    You know, so I say what I say
    And I say what I say, and I mean it
    Y’all take it how you wanna take it
    Cause if you’re askin’ – Why is hip-hop dead?
    It’s a pretty good chance you’re the reason it died, man
    It’s a pretty good chance your lame ass, corny
    ass, is the reason it died, man
    You don’t give a fuck about it, you
    don’t know nothin’ about it
    You want this paper, be a hustler
    You a hustler, you ain’t a rapper
    Get your paper man
    YouknowwhatI’msayin, but this rap shit is real
    Bitch, this shit is real, bitch, ha-ha

    Nas is that dude! When wack rappers like Solja Boy are complaining that they can’t sell records a smile spreads across my face.

    When they blame it on Nas naming his album Hip Hop Is Dead I have no choice but to give Nas that much more respect! That was a G move. He killed wack rap with that title! Soulja Boy and his wack rapping peers can no longer move units!

  • mdb

    lmao at gunot killa and at the h town dude actually taking it seriously…

    and soulja boy needs to go read a fuckin book

  • INF

    Are you guys serious?

    How can you condone this youngin’ talking this much trash about one of our legends and people have the nerve to come on here and defend him like he’s saying something that even makes a hint of sense.

    Soulja Boy is nowhere in the game, to be discussing Nas. He has two albums under his belt compared to how many classics under Nas? T

    This kid cant be serious

  • eugene

    man who tha FUCK is cock sucka kold solja boy

  • http://www.rapaveli.com Ambition-1

    I think the only way for us, the hip hop culture, to take this shit back over is if we stop being lazy and do something about it. Back when I was a kid I remember there being a bunch of “non hip hop” rap music out but it didn’t matter because artist were held to a different standard. Now its like all you have to do is say you’re the best rapper alive and we the consumers buy into it because… well I don’t know why ya’ll do that dumb shit.

    I think that the lack of album slaes right now is probably the best thing for the music in general. It will force artist to really get on their shit and come from the heart when they spit. If you can’t make what they think will sell then maybe we can actually hear some inspired music for a change.

    As for Soulja Boy, I don’t know why he gets under ya’lls skin so much. After his latest album flop he’s pretty much out the game now. Kids don’t even like him anymore. I do tend to agree with him that if Nas and anyone else thinks that hip hop is really dead then what they really aought to be focusing on is reviving the shit in the studio!

    Soulja boy wont even be relevent in a year so for him to try to disrespect a hip hop vet when his(soulja) rhymes are the weakest shit since Vanilla Ice, he better just shut tha fuc up…now that i think about it…Vanilla Ice was a better rapper than soulja bitch..super soak dat HHHOOOO3333333!

  • no hate

    No adult supervision and guidance + money + fame = inevitable destruction. I’m glad the youngun made money and found some level of success even though I don’t respect or relate to his music. On the other hand, he’s what kids will look up to? Just because he struck gold? Which in my opinion he won’t do ever again… That’s not hate. Numbers are proving that. I will not expose my kids to stuff like this. What’s the purpose of filming this? It wasn’t an interview. A failed attempt to garner sympathy and support for a floundering second album. It’s a teenager trying to perfom as his own publicist and pull a spin job. There may not be anymore magic left in the youtube wand.

  • RotterdamSoldier

    Well Soulja you blame Nas?Hahaha instead of making stupid comments and going at Nas you might want to step your security game up.I don’t condone that they robbed your ass but what did you expect doing stupid shit like blowing your nose with hundred $ and countless other stupid shit. Nigga’s are hungry out here, ppl getting thrown out houses, no money and then we have you..blowing your nose with money.Nigga’s be like..If he can blow his nose with money…he can afford to lose some of that to me.Who’s the most stupid by the way…Soulja boy or the nigga’s that robbed him and put it on youtube?

  • Trickdd

    All Soulja is doing is stating his opinion… How I feel about it in a way he has a point and I always said the same thing myself when people where saying the dumb shit… He isn’t trying to say NAS killed Hip-Hop he is saying all that Hip Hop is dead shit is bullshit and the only reason other people are saying it is cause NAS did witch is tru we wouldn’t be having this conversation if it wasn’t for NAS witch isn’t a bad thing cause that is what artist are suppose to do send a message and make people step up there game I just wish people would realize shits the same just a different day everything stays the same people just change Hip Hop is alive as it has ever been we just need to get the people who make all the blank CD’s and leak music on LimeWire and all that shit to stop fucking up peoples career

    I said Hip Hop was dead like in 04- 05 Not sure but definatley before Nas. I didnt have a platform to publicize it. You tube is killing these rappers careers and Image. SB had a few Points but his overall snyopsis is wrong. I bet you he didnt even Listen to the album or take time to understand What Nas was saying. U can tell cause he said I bet Nas was Hearing Franchize boys..Thought it was whack and said Hip Hop is dead. He didnt make that statement becuase The South was on top.

  • 92FS

    Hip-Hop been dead before Nas even mentioned it. Radio,Corporations and the Internet all helped in the demise of hip-hop.

  • lostgyrl

    This is a dumb “ass” video!!!!!!!! real talk. Too much cursing!

  • michael

    It’s true wat you say about Souljaboytellem but Nas shouldn’t had said”Hip Hop is Dead”. Come on who actullay believes hip hop is really dead.Souljaboy was wrong by not seeing the accusation as waring because as Soulja is young like me he will jump head forward and ask questions later, that is problem with us youngers.Soulja is to cocky with his behavior(even i am too).We should all understand that souljaboy is in a different genre of music (he dont’t know) called snap (ATL version if hip hop with alot dance that can get u up on your feet).Finally I still believe that Nas,Bigge,2PAC,Jay-z and LIL wanye are still the best but the are still people that can take any of tell on.
