Soulja Boy Tell 'Em recently argued that Nas should be taken to task for rap's so-called destruction instead of him.
"Real talk, the n*gga that killed hip-hop was Nas," Soulja Boy said. "He came out publicly and said, 'Hip-Hop is dead,' and then after that everybody started saying hip-hop is dead. 'Cause think about it, if Nas would have never said hip-hop is dead, then motherf*ckers would have never thought anything about it."
Referring to the title of Nas' 2006 album, Hip-Hop Is Dead, Soulja Boy said the rap veteran's claims ultimately impacted the careers of hip-hop artists.
"He probably wasn't feeling how the music was going," Soulja Boy added. "He came out and killed everybody's money. He killed his own career with that sh*t. He shoulda thought about that sh*t though."
While not suggesting artists should censor their opinions, Soulja Boy referenced other emcees who have been successful at their own self-claims.
"You see how George Bush f*cked up America, it's the same way Nas did with hip-hop," Soulja Boy compared. "N*gga came out with Hip-Hop Is Dead and f*cked up everything. But you see how Lil' Wayne came right back and sold a million albums in a week and proved Nas wrong."
In related news, Soulja Boy recently won big at the Online Hip-Hop Awards 2008. Here you can see him accepting the award for King of the Net.
