Ice – T Responds to Soulja boy

I was shocked that Soulja boy responded the way that he did. It shows a lack of respect for the older generation and leaders of Hip-Hop. I mean does Soulja Boy really think that he makes good music, like noone will remember this dude next year. And his response sounds like a immature little boy, BEAT IT!!!!

Here’s How The Whole Thing Started…

Here is Soulja boy’s response.

Soulja boy is fresh ass 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. – Kanye West

Now Kanye is rolling with Soulja Boy on this one. So basically if you spit on a record, loop it over a few times now you are Hip-Hop. Vanilla Ice is hip-Hop, hell if you come from the hood, make your own beats then you too can be hip hop. It doesn’t matter if you have any love for the culture, this genre of music. But clearly this is where the industry meets the culture, Soulja boy is what the industry has made. Times are changing so to say everything that is new is wack is proposterous. But for Kanye West to compare Soulja Boy to Nas is outrageous. Matter fact I am forgetting that Kanye goes on tirades and this was definitely one of them.

    Personally, I’m annoyed at the poor dialogue in our music community. I’ve never heard of country stars beefing with each: “I’ve never seen you milk a cow.” “You’re ass has never worked on a farm.” So why do we?

    It could be argued that the rap battle lies in the roots of hip-hop, but I think this has been taken out of context and gotten out of control. I mean we have artists like 50 that are beefing with EVERYBODY and for what? I’m not hearing any lyrical genius in these so-called “rap beefs” just shameless plugs/publicity and corny promos for their upcoming, wack albums.

    But I’ll respond to the issue at hand……

    While I do believe Soulja Boy’s music sucks, in his defense – Ice-T came at him in a very disrespectful way first. I was disappointed in Ice-T for the very immature way he chose to approach Soulja Boy. If you’re an ol’ head trying to educate one of the youngins he shouldn’t have come at him like that… “Suck a dick?” How old are you?

    While Soulja Boy was disrespectful, he had a point. If you don’t like the music I make or you feel it’s counter-productive: mentor me, talk to me, teach me, and don’t make diss records.

    1) This is no secret. EVERYONE knows Hurricane Chris, Soulja Boy, & that other one are horrible and their music sucks, but they’re 16!!!!! If you want to be pissed about something be pissed at the state of hip-hop. Be pissed at the producers (Colli Park) that are financing and putting out this trash.

    2) We need to be mindful of how we categorize artists. There is a difference between hip-hop and rap. Hip-Hop = Common, KRS-One, Kayne, etc….. Soulja Boy is in that Rap category, along with 50 Cent, etc…. [Personally, I don’t think Ice-T can be thrown in the Hip-Hop category either, but that’s just me…..]

    3) Soulja Boy is making music for his generation. He’s no different than Kris Kross or Lil’ Mama. They’re rapping about lip gloss and dancing – not swinging from a poll or shooting people. They’re making dance music that THEY can listen to; they could be rapping about shooting somebody or selling drugs. At least they chose a different route.

    I agree with the commentary at Allhophop.com: http://allhiphop.com/stories/editorial/default.aspx

    personaly i like fresh new hip hop and i like the old school. its great having an old memory, feeling played on the radio and its great to create new thoughts and emotions with new music.
    after viewing and listening to a 17 year old, almost a man, is perhaps one of thesaddest things ive heard. but his generation, even lacks respect for even fellow students. the young man is going to have have even a longer road to travel if at 17, can show how immature and disrespectful he still is.
    Ice T did the right thing by speaking his thoughts, thats what adults do, teach their children, otherwise they would all run into the street, were cars drive, or try something from under, the sink.
    this young man is only just beyond the point of self enlightment to the power of words, when he becomes a man, maybe he’ll choose the right one and get back to Ice T, “SORRY.”
