This sh*t is crazy lol...
But I got some questions for those defending Soulja Boi:
How is Ice-T ''hating'' on Soulja Boi... seriously, what has soulja boi got that Ice T doesnt? All of you are talking about getting his money but Ice T is more ''caked up jack'' so why are you saying he's ''hating'' on him. This is what I mean 'hate' gets thrown around too much when people can't have an intellectual discussion about something so the cop out is ''hes hating on him, stop hating on him''
Another thing is you're defending him fine, but your not looking at the bigger picture... If you think about all the artists from the past you compare soulja boi to - hammer, vanilla ice, whoever that made catchy sh*t and everyone said they were sh*t but ''they got their money'' WHERE ARE THEY NOW? Where are the more recent versions of SB? the D4Ls, Mims, whoever... My point is yes he gets his money but he wont last hes a fad and your defending his hustle but what kind of a hustle is that when he wont be able to ''provide for his siblings'' in 5 or so years?? and who also pays the price...? HIP HOP. So in your eyes its basically cool for someone to come and r*pe the artform and leave behind the mess... Hip Hop will always be here and those of us on Ice T's side are thinking more about hip hop than just one person getting his money. Those that kept it real and got success are ''caked up jack'' those who didnt aint simple as because the ruthless labels will find a next SB and use him... THATS why hes fu*king up the game. If he lasts more power to him but do you see him investing the money hes going to feed his siblings with? no hes got bikes and hummers and superman chains... is that smart? is that a hustler? or is jay a hustler and 50 a hustler... think about it
Its kids out there that studied the greats.....have heard an Ice T, rakim, epmd, tribe called quest cd etc.
Its kids out there that know what hip hop is about and can actually write rhymes....that are working hard to get put on..... and could easily do some bullsh*t superman song... but don't because they actually respect hip hop.
I feel sorry for the few cool 16 or 17 year old up and coming rappers out there with talent if Soulja Boy is what they expect from yall, and thats the music they want yall to make. A 16 or 17 year old got to make some corny music to "get paid" these days. Soulja Boy can't rap and his music is the measuring bar? Future Rappers WAKE UP! Yall Are fu*ked!
Will Smith and ll cool j was 16 or 17 when they dropped and their songs back then sh*t on all of Soulja Boy Songs.
