Ice-T Vs. Soulja Boi, THIS IS RIDICULOUS!
Are you fucking serious?I first read a little bit about this so called battle or war on Amanda Diva's blog. I didn't really pay too much attention to it. I didn't think much of it. I kind of thought it was a hoax actually. Today I was on Seriously's blog and I had a chance to actually view the youtube videos of Ice T and Soulja Boi's responses. I must say that this is down right ridiculous. People may disagree with me but, I agree with Soulja Boi. Why would an old ass veteran like Ice T decide to talk shit about a 16 year old. I know a lot of old heads have their opinions and views of hip hop today or new and upcoming rappers but, to actually get on youtube and tell a 16 year old to "eat a dick" is very immature. If Ice-T truly feels that Soulja Boi single handedly killed hip hop why not try to get in contact with him, sit down have a conversation, get to know the kid a bit, and reach out to him in that manner. Then for Ice-T to say that hip hop isn't just about some stupid dance, he's wrong. When hip hop first started it was about more than just rhymes. Hip Hop was about rhyming, grafitti, djs, and dancing. I personally feel that over the years Hip Hop actually got away from dancing besides the naked girls in the videos, which don't even count. I think that a lot of Southern artists (like D4L, Dem Franchise Boyz, Soulja Boi) actually brought dancing and the fun back into hip hop. I'd much rather see a kid like Soulja Boi rap and create a dance than to see and hear him talk about drugs and murder. The first time that I had actually heard Soulja Boi's Superman song I was at a wedding reception. When the song came on everybody, young and old raced to the dance floor to do this dance. I was like WTF, what is this song and who made it. I actually felt a moment of joy to see people of all ages get up, dance, and have so much fun together. I had never in my life seen that happen with any other song. Another thing that Ice-T needs to realize is that, Soulja Boi was 16 when he created that song (he's 17 now). So he was born in 1991 and he's from the South. If Ice-T knew anything about culture "The South" is known for dancing. So it's like what do you expect? Don't get me wrong I'm not trying to stereotype young people who live in the south at all. It's a different time frame. It's not 1985 it's 2008. If you guys don't know by now I love music. I listen to all types of music. My favorite rapper is Nas but, you can also catch me one day bumping Three 6 Mafia or Bun B. I'm a lyric person and I love music with substance but, sometimes I want to hear some crunk shit. People talk a lot of shit about southern rappers and say that they're not real rappers and that's their opinion. The bottom line is if you don't like it then don't listen to it. It's room in the industry for everybody and every type of genre or style. Case and Point. I thought I was done but, I'm not. Then for Ice-T to try to crack on Hurricane Chris's beads (which, he did apologize in the 2nd video), he can't say shit about nobody's hair because he's had that old ass fucking ponytail all his life. I just noticed in that video that he must have just cut it off *CLAPS*! It's about time. You don't see Ice Cube still walking around with a Jerry Curl do you? When you get old it's time to change.
