Oh, the whole Ice-T vs. Soulja Boy nonsense; I really wanted to ignore it. Ice-T calls Soulja Boy out for being wack; Soulja Boy calls Ice-T Grandpa and to shut up. Yeah, that’s a deep conversation. Well, Kanye West jumped in the middle of it. He defended Soulja Boy on his blog, essentially saying, Soulja Boy is as gifted as Nas. Kanye Speaks.. “Soulja boy is fresh as hell and is actually the true meaning of what hip hop is sposed to be. He came from the hood, made his own beats, made up a new saying, new sound and a new dance with one song. He had all of America rapping this summer. If that ain’t Hip Hop then what is? A bunch of wannabe keep it real rappers that ain’t even relevant, recycling samples trying to act like it’s 96 again and all they do is hate on new shit? Niggas always talk about the golden age but for a 13 year old kid, this is the golden age!!! That song was so dope cause everything he said had a hidden meaning… that’s Nas level shit… he just put it over some steel drums which is also some Nas shit if you had the 2nd album cassette with the bonus track “Silent Murder” on it. In closing… new niggas get ya money$$$$$$$$$$ Keep this shit fresh and original…. ain’t no fuckin’ rules to this shit and that’s what real hip hop is to me.” Whenever I see my nieces and nephews (13 years old and younger) they love that Southern, dance, craze rap. Honestly it’s much better having them reciting nigga this/bitch that lyrics. Soulja Boy makes music for the younger set (even if ‘Supaman.. ’ did have a hidden meaning.) On the other hand, Kanye comparing Soulja Boy to Nas, is taking it off the cliff. Not today, yesterday, or in 58 years can that kid come up with a single song with Nas level lyrics. Soulja Boy makes up a new saying or word, repeats it thirty times, says something unintellible, and it’s back to the chorus. Yeah, he’s terrible - but for his fans, that’s entertainment. Let them have their fun. By the way, can anyone find Joe Ski Love? Tell him The Pee Wee Herman needs to make a comeback. << Ha, that's a better/fairer comparison than Nas.
