XXcLusive: Juvenile Denies Dissing Soulja Boy

While Juvenile sent the web abuzz this week with a new record rumored to target Soulja Boy, Juvie denies that it’s indeed a diss.

The lyrics in question appeared on “My Money Don’t Fold,” the street single to his upcoming album, Cocky and Confident. The former Hot Boys member raps, “Listen up soldier boy, I’ll bend your antenna/Red dot on the center of your head for my dinner/I don’t talk about swaaaaggg, cause show it/$50,000 cash in the club I blow it.”

But according to the New Orleans native, his words were not aimed towards SB. Soldier is just a slang term used down South, similar to the way New Yorkers use the term “son.”

“People are taking it the wrong way,” Juvenile told XXLMag.com. “I said ‘soldier’ and everyone thinks I’m talking about Soulja Boy. But that’s been my language and my word long before Soulja Boy even came about. That’s really how we talk down here.”

Still, the New Orleans rapper understands why people think it’s a shot at Soulja.

“Some of my fellas was like, ‘Man, it really sounds like you’re talking about him,’ but they know I’m not,” Juvenile said. “So I’m listening to it like, ‘Damn, it really [does sound like I’m talking about Soulja Boy].’ It’s just a close coincidence, but I’m not.

“I really like the last song he made and my kids like it, so I don’t have no problem,” he continues. “I like to see young cats get money.”

Instead of focusing on the teen rapper, Juvenile is gearing up for release of his forthcoming ninth solo album—the first since 2006’s Reality Check.

    niggas are scared to diss soulja boi all of a sudden
    yo seriously whats going on in the game .. even snoop reneged after dissing his music . game done changed

    • Mr. North

      Yeah, whats up with that? I was just thinking that. I think its because they don’t want to down the guy. His songs aren’t that bad and its for a different demographic essentially so they don’t want they’re kids to think their dads a hater.

    • matty21

      Kenny n Mr. North: i don’t think anyone is scared, y would dey be scared? lol….n y would there be a reason to diss soulja boy? there is no reason to diss him, he’s been doing his thing for a couple of years now n has neither dissed or disrespected anyone, unless dey deserved it or if dey came at him first of course (he shows appreciation n respect for da elders who paved da way for him n gave him da opportunity to do what he’s doing)…cats in da game respect soulja boy for his hustle, hard-work, n talent, n if they don’t, they should….god willing, soulja boy ain’t going newhere n will be around doing his thing, being 1 of da best for a long time to come…to everyone: get used to it…..n da hate is just a part of da game n it comes along wit da greatness…real dudes respect the hustle, period….

    Reality Check had some good music on it and his recent guest verses and stray singles been good so Im anticipating(not so much) his new album. That had to be a Soulja Boy diss not because of the Soulja reference like they’ve been using forever but he made two different DeAndre references…

    MAYN HOL’UP

    Not for nothing, but Juvy would probably rap circles around DeAndre Tellem. It’s only right, since Juvenile’s upwards of 35 years old, which makes his stage name a bit misleading now.
