Soulja Boy On His Shout Out To The Slavemasters: “I’ve Made A Huge Mistake”

Nov 7th, 2008 // 4 Comments

The YouTube-spawned MC Soulja Boy caused a bit of a stir when word got out that he was giving props to slavemasters of yore, since without them he wouldn’t be here “to get his ice and tattoos.” Not all that surprising, given his Gob Bluth-like behavior of late, but it still left a bit of an appalling aftertaste in peoples’ mouths. Well, he just wants to let you know that he was totally kidding! Or being sarcastic! Or just not understanding the “tough” questions posed to him by the hip-hop journalist Toure.

“Man basically what happened that day, I was at BET filming the last episode of Rap City and then the Touré dude asked me if I wanted to do an interview with him and I said no. I had seen the interview with Bow Wow and Omarion and he was like roasting them or whatever and it turned out to be bad. I was like, I’m straight, I don’t want to do an interview with you. Then, my management was like if he’s good we can do an interview with him…for promotion or whatever…I was just joking. Most of the questions he was asking me wasn’t making no sense. Like, he was asking me how I wanted to die and asking me all these questions so I thought he was joking with me. I didn’t really take it seriously. Basically it was sarcasm that got blown out of proportion.”

If you really wanted to get your point across, Soulja, you could have just answered with a “come on.”

See? Works every time!

    Put some Ds on it!!
    I’ve probably mentioned this a thousand times in the last 5 years, but I once saw Chuck D speak at the University of Illinois about the ‘collegiate thug’, how an African American student might get into a great institution, get excellent grades, but then when visiting home or sometimes on campus, still feel the need to downgrade their language, behavior, and act uneducated, the blame of which he put on media and communities for making education a negative thing.

    I think the support of Sarah Palin showed the white equivalent.

    Is that picture from the one of those episodes of Family Matters where Urkel has his “cool” doppelganger?

    @Captain Wrong: I think you just exposed a rupture in the cosmos with that joke.
