The grade school gutter gremlin is at it again. Fresh off of his jet plane publicity stunt, Soulja Boy is once again getting his name on Twitter feeds by telling the army troops to “fuck off” in his new song called “Let’s Be Real.” The entire poignant lyric that will soon be featured in a book of beloved American poetry along with works from Maya Angelou and E.E. Cummings goes like this:
“Fuck the FBI and the army troops. Fighting for what? Be your own man.
I’ll be flying through the clouds with green like I’m Peter Pan.”
You can burn two of your five senses by watching the video for this piece of shit mess here, but you’d be better off watching the grainy video of you dancing to “Thuggish Ruggish Bone“ in your parent’s garage so I’d go with that instead.
But anyway, after several members of the military and veterans dissed this generation’s MC Hammer for dissing them for fighting for his right to diss them, he made his publicist/cousin take a break from their full-time job as a check cashing clerk to write this apology statement to Global Grind for him. You know this didn’t from the same brain that shat out Kiss Me Thru the Phone.
“As an artist, I let my words get the best of me. Sometimes there are things that we feel, things that we want to express, and when we put them on paper and speak them out loud, they can come out wrong,” he wrote in a statement. “When I expressed my frustration with the US Army, not only did my words come out wrong, I was wrong to even speak them. So, I write this to give my sincerest apology to all members of the United States military services, as well as their families that were offended by my most recent lyrics.
As a young man who grew up in the post-9/11 era, I have watched our country fight two wars that seem like they are never going to end. I have seen thousands and thousands of our brave men and women get killed in battle and often times, I think for what? A lot of people in this country are struggling to make ends meet and I think a lot about what if we had never gone to war. Where would our economy be? Our schools, our after-school and work programs, our streets? I mean, damn, 48 people got shot in New York City just this past weekend … in 3 days … I’m not saying that it is just because of a bad economy, but at a certain point we have to take care of our own people.
In no way would I ever want to offend those who are protecting our freedoms … a lot of homeboys who I grew up with, a lot of people who come from the neighborhoods we live in … In no way do I want to hurt any of our honorable soldiers who put their lives at risk, regardless of how they feel about the two wars we fight in. I am just frustrated that we haven’t been able to bring you all home quick enough and my frustration got the best of me. I am deeply sorry.
I was with (not really) Anarchista Boy until he called himself an “artist.”
