Soulja Boy Apologizes To The Military

| Filed under: Music MinutePerezTV

That was fast.

Yesterday, Soulja Boy had pissed off members of the U.S. military, and probably lots of other people as well, with the lyrics to his new rap song Let's Be Real (above), in which he says "f**k the army troops."

Now, Soulja Boy has apologized for his controversial lyrics, and he posted a blog entry on GlobalGrind.com, titled "I Am Deeply Sorry To All Members Of The United States Military Services And Their Families."

Here's an excerpt from Soulja's apology:

"As an artist, I let my words get the best of me. Sometimes there are things that we feel, things that we want to express, and when we put them on paper and speak them out loud, they can come out wrong."

And more from Soulja:

"So, I write this to give my sincerest apology to all members of the United States military services, as well as their families that were offended by my most recent lyrics."

Check out Soulja Boy's FULL apology AFTER THE JUMP!

Do U think Soulja's apology is sincere? Do U forgive him for his anti-military words???

As an artist, I let my words get the best of me. Sometimes there are things that we feel, things that we want to express, and when we put them on paper and speak them out loud, they can come out wrong.

When I expressed my frustration with the US Army, not only did my words come out wrong, I was wrong to even speak them. So, I write this to give my sincerest apology to all members of the United States military services, as well as their families that were offended by my most recent lyrics.

As a young man who grew up in the post-9/11 era, I have watched our country fight two wars that seem like they are never going to end.

I have seen thousands and thousands of our brave men and women get killed in battle and often times, I think for what? A lot of people in this country are struggling to make ends meet and I think a lot about what if we had never gone to war.

Where would our economy be? Our schools, our after-school and work programs, our streets? I mean, damn, 48 people got shot in New York City just this past weekend … in 3 days … I'm not saying that it is just because of a bad economy, but at a certain point we have to take care of our own people.

In no way would I ever want to offend those who are protecting our freedoms … a lot of homeboys who I grew up with, a lot of people who come from the neighborhoods we live in … In no way do I want to hurt any of our honorable soldiers who put their lives at risk, regardless of how they feel about the two wars we fight in.

I am just frustrated that we haven't been able to bring you all home quick enough and my frustration got the best of me. I am deeply sorry.

~Soulja Boy

    What an ass. Between him, Little Wayne and Chris Brown the Hip Hop community must be beaming with pride. :l



  2. 2

    He's right why the fuck is the US still over seas? There is no reason for it.



  3. 3

    This clown cannot speak grammatically correct English, much less write it. Further, the apology his publicit wrote for him makes no logical sense. Especially at the end when he says he is pissed off that the military has not come home. So he says "fuck the military?" How does that make sense? The publicist should be fired. And soulja boyyyyyeeeee should be dropped in the middle of fallujah to see how this fake midget pisses "hisself" before he gets shot in the head.



  4. 4

    i've heard much worse in rap so its not even that serious. and why not the eff the military they are over seas killing innocent ppl for no reason.

  5. d.f. says – reply to this

    Re: Freedomisntfree – so you can ask stupid Que. like this and not fear jail time. but of course you think the USA is an awful country. go ask all those people dying to live here, ask them how great it is to live in Cuba, Afghanistan, Iran, Sudan, etc. etc. you'll NEVER see it so, why don't you go live in said countries see how your free your freedom is there.



  6. 6

    It is a very articulate statement. I hope it is sincere - but I wonder if he wrote that, or is it from a publicist? We will never know what he really thinks. I certainly do not always support the gov't's decisions regarding the military, but regardless of the political maneuvering, our troops in the face of danger always have my full support.



  7. 7

    As a Navy Corpsman, I'm actually not really that bothered by this asshole. I'm a total white girl but even I KNOW that this guy is a shitty rapper and his lyrics suck. He's a moron plain and simple and his lyrics just prove it. I think most Americans understand that…



  8. 8

    Re: iDontGivaFucc – Someone doesn't see the big picture. Nothing is in black and white…Until you understand, I would keep that opinion to yourself.



  9. 9

    Just shows you what money with no education or common sense will get you…..



  10. 10

    Re: iDontGivaFucc – unless your ass has actually been there… shut the fuck up. they are not killing innocent people, there own damn people are hurting and killing each other and my brother who is in the army deployed in Afghanistan right now could tell many horror stories of what there own parents do to a child there.



  11. 11

    It came out wrong? When a song is recorded, it is probably listened to, corrected and redone 100 times. How can this little shit say thats not what he meant after hearing it back so many times?
    Even if he was too stupid to pick up on it, common sense would dictate that one of his "people" might pose the question of it's meaning and possible consequenses.
    Nope. The kid is an asshole who got bitch slapped by a country or 2 and is now tucking his tail between his legs and using stupidity as an excuse.



  12. 12

    Just like their racist rants!! It is all good when they apologizes!! They will get pissed and throw another one out and it is OK because they went threw a lot in the slavery days.. Haha Its OK, just poor black folks speaking there mind… Blacks can NOW say what ever they want!! MLK would roll over in his grave to see how they used what he fought for CHANGES!!!



  13. 13

    NWA called, they want their controversy over dissing civil servants back.



  14. 14

    Re: d.f. – Pathetic this is what you think they are over there for? You realize since the US has invaded those countries they are worse off the US Army has no reason to be anywhere except their own fucking country. The US Army killed 109,000 innocent civilians in Iraq. The US Army is fighting for a few elite bastards and if you're to blind to see that you my friend are a sheep. BAHHHHHHHHHHHHHH BAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH

    Re: clairebear 29 – no i do get the big picture. they kill people that kill people because killing people is wrong.



  16. 16

    Re: Yenkme – Yea fucktard its called freedom of speech and has nothing to do with MLK for fuck sakes.



  17. 17

    Man, Really wish he wouldn't of apologized. The fact that these egomaniacs feel the need to call him out further proves my point. The military we have today have a false sense of unearned entitlement. They think they are gods..They aren't shit. They are not fighting for freedom LMAO. Like any country is actually a threat to our freedom. The only soldiers that are allowed to get on a high horse are those who fought an actual war such as WW1 or WW2.

    They are over there fighting people that are unorganized, under trained, have no resources, and no air support nor the technology. Its like indians with bows fighting against cowboys with guns. If one guy with an AK shoots at them they duck and hide and call in an airstrike. They think they deserve recognition for fighting against a bunch of tards LMAO right.

    If they were fighting an actual war and had to charge a foxhole getting mowed down like in WW2 then they can talk. Until then, not everyone finds you guys to be all high and mighty. Hell, I won't even bother mentioning how incompetent they all are anyways..10 years, a trillion dollars only to kill one guy LOL.

    I dunno whats worse, them killing quadruple the civilians in FF than we lost in the 9/11 attacks..Or retarded idiots actually thinking they are fighting for our "freedom" LOLOL



  18. 18

    I sincerely do not accept his apology. He officially pissed off people from every race, creed, sex and religion by insulting the military. It's going to take a lot more than an apology to make things right.



  19. 19

    No, I don't think he is sorry. This is what he does. He runs his mouth, and when the pressure is on, he apologizes. Another washed up artist vying for publicity.



  20. 20

    Whats sad is a lot of people have negative things to say about the Military, but sure as hell don't mind that they are fighting to protect us. I heard a kid recently say he isn't impressed by the military because most of the time when people join, its only because they have no other outlet in life and need it as a crutch. People can be so naive!



  21. 21

    I am actually impressed with his apology tho. I think rather then fuck the army troops, he should have aimed it more at the politicians…



  22. 22

    WTF?? I just lost all respect for him! I won't be buying his songs from now on. This is so disrespectful! The reason why he is living so peacefully in this country is because of our troops!



  23. 23

    not good enough…let him go and get killed in afghanistan…

  24. yeez says – reply to this

    Re: Freedomisntfree – Because Vietnam worked out so well that we thought we'd do it again!

  25. yeez says – reply to this


    25

    He shouldn't need to apologize for having an opinion, regardless of the fact that some may find it offensive or ill-informed.



  26. 26

    Re: NookiesWA – You really are kind of stupid aren't you? The people are not up in arms by his statement because he is saying fuck the political part of military, it came off like he was saying fuck everyone involved, including troops. Not everyone who is in the military agrees with the decisions being made, and not everyone wants the recognition or whatever you're trying to say they want from being in the military. Next time something like 9/11 or Pearl Harbor happens, why don't you strap on some weapons and be the one out their doing something? Because you will be on gossip websites commenting about how bad it is. I know I appreciate everyone who joins the military because I don't want my ass being the one out there on the front line, and I'm assuming you're just to naive to believe anything could ever actually happen. I really hope if you ever get shot at you Matrix style jump across in front of them while you're shooting your weapon and see how well that works out for you while you try and dodge bullets, since you seem to think taking cover would be the bad thing to do.



  27. 27

    Re: MsJules – People can be naive kind of like you eh? The army isn't over there protecting us for fuck sakes they are over there so the Rothschild family and other elitist bastards can continue profiting from both sides of this bullshit war. Do you honestly think we are being protected from some fucking people across the world who the only reason they hate America is because of how badly they have fucked their countries up…



  28. 28

    AKA hes a spoiled brat who knows nothing of the real world or war!!!!
    His appology is all over the place and maeks no since.
    I;d say I'd never listen to him again . . . but then again . . . I NEVER HAVE!!
    He has no talent and will end up broke like MC Hammer and thought of like Millie Vanillie!!

    ni66er trash

    Re: Freedomisntfree – I wasn't referring to just this war, any war, any time they have fought for our freedom. No need to attack me over it.



  31. 31

    Re: iDontGivaFucc – REALLY???? You have no clue what you are even talking about. If it wasn't for the military who is risking their lives your ass will have to fight in which you will lose so please get your facts straight first



  32. 32

    Re: HILRAY – And you are no better.. you are just plain TRASH~~~~!!!!

  35. 35

    Re: GetReal!!!!

    Which military? is the military in every country awesome, or just ours?

    Yay! Nationalism! Let's go start another war for God, Gold and Country!



  36. 36

    I saw him at the airport once. He is short, small, weak-looking and most likely will always resemble that of a 12 year old boy. No wonder he is bitter. He couldn't fight off a 6th grader. Another pathetic rapper posing as legitimate, on the foundation of graphics and technology. He is nothing more than a nig in a small space suite. Send him out to the sandbox, and do a reality show on the legitimacy of his actions. Coward, small, LOSER!!!!



  37. 37

    He is like 4'5…I would stomp him like a bug…thats why he has a well paid posse, huh soldier boy. Calls himself a soldier and then condemns men and women who does what hasn't have the ballz to do….I can't wait till you go away forever you little rate turd.



  38. 38

    people seriously need to fuck off. it's his music. let him do whatever he wants to do. he's still gonna make money and be richer than you. so, haters keep hating. your still gonna have a pathetic life. while, soulja boy is out there with his music making money. haha
    but seriously, i don't have to apologize so FUCK THE MILITARY. I HOPE THE TROOPS DIE! :]



  39. 39

    Artist? Your any thing but an artist you idiot.



  40. 40

    Re: DemiLovatoTheFatWristCutter – Your nick is absolutely appalling. Have you no empathy?

    Re: YenkmeRe: HILRAYRe: Chinchilla54 – If you want to make a valid argument, leave ethnicity out of it.



  44. 44

    I think he got someone to write that for him, it sounds a bit too coherent…



  45. 45

    Re: KittieNash – - So why do americans stick their big fuckin' noses in another country's business. Worry about your own fucked up country before you start destroying another one!



  46. 46

    Re: MsJules – Hey, its true. Trash join the army!! sorry!

    Re: NookiesWA

    How can you make such a generalization about our military as to say they all think they are gods? They are only defending our civilian policy-makers, and are among the most polite people in our country. Further, our country is not fighting undersupplied, undertrained people. If you knew anything about our relationship with Afghanistan, you'd know that we supplied them with both weapons and training a long time ago.. Our current troops are defending our country due to a misjudgment made by (once again) our non-military leaders in the past.



  49. 49

    Re: NookiesWA

    Also, how can you say they are not fighting for our freedom? They're over in countries like Afghanistan trying to figure out (pretty successfully) what terrorist groups like Al Qaeda have planned for the future. People in our country, for example, should feel free and safe to go to work every day, without the risk of another 9/11. Further, if the terrorist groups we fight against had their way, we'd have to adopt the same principles that they believe in. Do you enjoy shopping, having a say in your political leadership, etc? I can tell from your avatar that you're not against showing skin. Those are all things that would not be allowed if we didn't have the military working to actively find out Al Qaeda's plans. Our country should not have to live in fear.

    Re: NookiesWARe: AshleyDuh

    Amen!
    Everyone thinks the military are sheep and just go along. You don't think half the guys and gals over there hate being there? We know it has nothing to do with freedom but let me ask you where would this country be without a military. You don't think they would be fighting us here in the U.S.? Your just like most Americans naive, why do you think 9/11 happened. You know these other countries call us spoiled Americans that don't know sacrifice! Guess what? They are right! Nookies you are the one that is pathetic! My real name is Allen and I'm at Fort Hood, Texas you can come see me whenever you like and we'll see who ducks!
