Soulja Boy Was... Just Joking?


It seemed like "hating" bloggers worst criticims of Soulja Boy were validated in late October when Toure released an interview with the Supa-manning rapper where he said, "Shout out the slave masters! Without them we'd still in Africa...we wouldn't be here to get this ice and tatoos!"

Insert: Hysterical backlash from every thinking person in America who caught wind of this.

But earlier this week, hiphopdx.com featured an interview with Soulja Boy about his inflammatory, insane comments. Soulja Boy claims that his comments were taken out of context and that he was actually being sarcastic because he didn't want to do the interview with Toure anyway. He says that he had seen the interview that he did with his pals, Bow Wow and Omarion and he knew that Toure would be out to hurt him.

"He was out for me to say something stupid so he can hurt me with [it]," Soulja Boy said. "And that’s what he did. So you know, it is what it is. Man, fuck Toure."

Now, I'll be the first to admit that Toure is a little annoying. Hell, who am I kidding? Dude irks the shit outta me. And yes, he does seem to like to try to bait artists into being stupid with his stupid questioning. But is it really his fault if they take the bait? And to be honest, I think it's easy to believe without question that Soulja Boy would say something so stupid. I mean, this is the creator of "Yah Trick Yahh!".

So what do you think? Was Soulja Boy really being sarcastic? Were his comments taken out of context? Or is he really a dumb ass? Or... do you not care any more because Obama won?

I don't really feel like he was being sarcastic necessarily, I want to believe that was the case though. By his logic, if he went into the interview reluctantly, he should've been extra careful with whatever he was saying. He had no room for that type of sarcasm if that's what he's attempting to call it. Especially since everyone outside of his little girl demographic is looking at him as being silly already.

He was being a dumbass! It's no way around it. If he didn't really want to do the interview with Toure', all he had to do was simply decline. Point blank. Peace.

Did he really need to speak such blasphemy? I don't believe he was trying to be sarcastic. I think he was actually trying to be grateful for being brought over to America by an means. Sad.
