Soulja Boy took to his Twitter account to blast the media using racist language. On Wednesday (July 1st) Soulja Boy wrote "Water down my music and my appearance and make me look like something i'm not." Continuing, "THESE CRACKERS DONT KNOW WHO THE F*CK I REALLY AM!!! Then I get signed. this is where my dream slowly died… these crackaz wanna criticize a n*gga. take REAL SH*t and turn it to trash. Like why? Like really. My music dream was THE SH*t 2 years ago before I was signed. It was everything I could ever imagine."
Then the next day (Thursday, July 2nd) the posts were deleted. Soulja Boy removed his dramatic tweets saying that R&B singer Tyrese gave him some advice on the situation.
