If you haven’t heard then check this out. 21 year old Atlanta rapper, Soulja Boy tell made a song entitled ‘Lets Be Real’. Well obviously, when ‘keeping it real goes wrong,’ the keeping it real cat comes out looking like a fool. And this was the case with Soulja Boy.
On the track, Soulja Boy shares his opinion toward military soldiers.
“F**k 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.” (“Let’s Be Real”)
Eventually he, Soulja Boy apologized for the lyrics stating:
“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.” (Hollywood Reporter)
You would think that an artist who only sold 13,000 copies of their album would be focusing on getting more supporters to purchase their next album instead of dropping the F bomb on anybody. Though he apologized, I’m sure he lost more fans. Definitely in the case of Leo Dunson, a former infantry sergeant. It’s obvious that either Leo didn’t like what Soulja Boy said, or had no liking for the rapper at all. Yet whatever the case may be, something about the ‘Pretty Boy Swag’ rapper just doesn’t sit well with Leo. On the contrary, here’s a little nugget for ya. Never fight hate with hate.
