Atlanta rapper Soulja Boy hit the net to address comments made by up-and-coming rapper and member of XXL’s “Freshman 10,” Charles Hamilton.
In a recent interview with Shade 45 the new Interscope signee had some choice words for the “Crank That” rapper.
“Yeah, alright. [Soulja Boy's] a smart kid, he used the online marketing thing, whatever whatever,” Hamilton said. “He had like a billion views on YouTube. Had a bunch of MySpace friends. He’s smart for using the business. What the fuck does that have to do with him ruining the opportunity of people such as Corey Gunz, Mickey Factz, Kid Cudi to be accepted in the mainstream?! I really don’t wanna hear it, honestly. And I’m not trying play Soulja Boy, but chill. It’s because of Soulja Boy that my day-to-day–the way I live, the Sonic the Hedgehog shit that’s dead real to me is considered a joke.”
Soulja Boy wasted no time to respond to Hamilton’s comments. While on his tour bus he filmed a short video explaining why he feels the Harlem rapper may have issues with him.
“I don’t even know why I’m addressing this, nah this is why I’m addressing this, this doesn’t just goes out to Charles Hamilton the sonic man, not just him, this goes out to all the rappers out there,” he said. “You’ve been grinding so hard, blahzay blahazy, you’re getting into your record label meetings and all you hear is Soulja Boy, Soulja Boy, Soulja Boy. Goddamn. Soulja Boy got 4 million views on YouTube. Soulja Boy just did this, Soulja Boy just did that, and in the back of your head you like fuck Soulja Boy.”
Yet not all of SB’s rebuttal was that friendly. He had some harsh advice for anyone who was interested in working with Hamilton.
“You gonna have to go to the drawing board right,” he advised. “You know get out the magic marker, X out the Sonic and you might just wanna fuck with Mario.”- Jesse Gissen
