The rapper Soulja Boy apologized for his song ‘Let’s Be Realistic’. He was letting out the rage he had inside he explained. “I have seen two wars that our country will never seem to end. I’ve seen thousands and thousands of our brave men and women die in battle and many times, I think for what?” He wrote.
“A lot of people in this country are struggling to earn a living and I think a lot of what if we had never gone to war.” In the song, the young rapper speaks negatively about the work of the FBI, and U.S. troops in foreign war zones. He made insults and use bad words — as an outtake of his lyrics prove: “Fuck the FBI and fuck all troops of the Army / The struggle for what? / Bitch, be your own man.”
He explained that the frustration was boiling with the country’s economy and grew with the ongoing war in Afghanistan following September 11. “A lot of people in this country are struggling to earn a living and I think a lot of what if we had never gone to war. If our economy?
Our schools, our after school and work programs, our streets? I mean, damn, 48 people got shot in the city of New York just this past weekend — in 3 days — I’m not saying it is only because of a bad economy, but at some point we have to take care of our own people.”
“No way I ever want to offend those who are protecting our freedoms [...] a lot of guys I grew up with a lot of people coming from the neighborhoods where we live [...] Certainly do not want to hurt any of our honorable soldiers who risk their lives at risk, regardless of how they feel about the two wars that fight, I’m frustrated that we have not been able to bring them all home fast enough and my frustration over me. I am deeply sorry.”
Soulja Boy was also in the spotlight this past January. He made a claim on his Twitter page, which was quickly re-tweet by his legion of fans, that he had written Willow Smith’s hit song, ‘Whip My Hair’. The song which was catapulted into the pop charts was actually all his doing.
This meant that many viewed his courage with favor. On Twitter, his followers support him and believe he did what he owed. Whether Soulja Boy has more friends than enemies remains unknown but this artist will not stop surprising us.
