Ice T had made comments last week saying Soulja Boy's music was "garbage" and he should "eat a dick." Soulja Boy replied by releasing a video blog [watch here] where he called Ice T "old" and said that he should be "ashamed of yourself." Ice T responded by releasing a new video [watch here] where he starts by apologizing for saying "eat a dick" but stands firm that Soulja Boy's music is garbage. Ice T says that SB's music is killing hip hop and SB should respect his elders. The video even features Ice T's son who is 16 (Soulja Boy is 17), who says SB's music is "wack." [watch the video here]
Kanye West doesn't agree with Ice T. Recently on his blog he said “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!!!"
Kanye West even went on to compare Soulja Boy to Nas saying "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… Ain’t no fuckin’ rules to this shit and that’s what real hip hop is to me.”
