I CAN RESPECT THE LAST THING U SAID. REAL TALK FAM. HOWEVER EVERYTHING ELSE IS A MOOT POINT. HE RAPS ABOUT WHAT HIS LABEL TELLS HIM NO DIFFERENT THAN A GUY AT BURGER KING MAY BE TOLD TO CLEAN PUKE OUT THE BATHROOM. EVEN IF U OWN UR OWN sh*t U STILL GOT TO ANSWER TO SOMEBODY. HE' S JUST DOIN HIS JOB. HE DIDNT SELL OUT AT OTHERS EXPENSE BECAUSE AT THE END OF THE DAY WE WATCH WHAT WE WANT. MY KIDS WATCH WHAT I ALLOW. PEOPLE BLAME EVERYTHING WRONG WITH THIER KIDS ON EVERYONE BUT THEMSELVES. SOLJA BOY WONT TEACH MY DAUGHTER TO BE IGNORANT BECAUSE SHE DONT LISTEN TO THAT TRASH. HE' S NOT IN THE POSITION TO LEVEL ANYTHING BECAUSE THATS NOT WHAT HE' S PAID TO DO. THEY PAY HIM TO DO SOMETHIN & THATS WHAT HE DOES. IF IT DIDNT SELL THEY WOULD CUT HIM.
I UNDERSTAND UR PERSPECTIVE BUT ITS NOT REALISTIC. SOLJA BOY ISNT RESPONSIBLE FOR TAKING CARE OF AMERICAS KIDS. HE' S RESPONSIBLE FOR TAKN CARE OF HIMSELF. HE' S DOIN A DAM GOOD JOB AT IT TOO. LEGALLY UNLIKE ALOT OF OUR YOUTH. WE HAVE TO TAKE CARE OF OUR OWN & NOT SCREAM AT PEOPLE THAT HAVE NEVER MET US TO BE RESPONSIBLE. THATS REALITY. PROPZ TO U FOR GIVING A SENSABLE & EDUCATED RESPONSE THOUGH BRO. U DONT GET MUCH OF THAT ON HERE
I agree that it is parents' responsibility to raise their children correctly and to expose them to the right kinds of things. Take a look at people like Soulja Boy though. . .He's on the radio, on MTV, BET, and other networks, will probably perform at a halftime show for a major sporting event sometime soon (:sick:) and has, for the most part, already permeated mainstream American culture (:sick:). My point is that despite parents' most concentrated efforts, children will likely be exposed to his music in some fashion multiple times when their parents aren't around (at school, friend's house, etc.). I don't blame Soulja Boy for trying to make a good living, I just think that in his position (in the spotlight) he could take some responsibility for promoting a better message and image. He's in a powerful position, a lot of people listen to him, hopefully he'll realize that, should he choose do so, he can bolster numerous progressive movements rather than simply put the same empty sh*t out on the airwaves. . .but, then again, we are talking about Soulja Boy.:banghead:
