Soulja Boy Tell Em has reportedly inked a Twitter post, which appears to have since been removed, that used racist language to call out the media's negative portrayal of him.
Posted Wednesday (July 1) night, the rapper goes through a rant regarding his music and image.
"Water down my music and my appearance and make me look like something i'm not," he wrote. "THESE CRACKERS DONT KNOW WHO THE F*CK I REALLY AM!!! Then I get signed. this is where my dream slowly died... these crackaz wanna criticize a n*gga. take REAL SH*t and turn it to trash. Like why? Like really. My music dream was THE SH*t 2 years ago before I was signed. It was everything I could ever imagine." (Def Sounds)
The internet picked up on the postings and saved screen shots in case the messages were later erased.
"Yeah I said," Soulja Boy added. "f*ck all of yall. I'm taking my money and leaving. Gonna go blow kush and live my 2nd dream. this rap sh*t lame now" (Rap Radar)
The messages were deleted Thursday morning.
UPDATE: Soulja Boy deleted all of his dramatic tweets early this morning. He said he talked to R&B singer Tyrese who gave him some advice on the situation. (MFeenz)
Soulja Boy also posted a Twitter message saying he has since received some guidance earlier today (July 2).
"Just got off the phone with @Tyrese4Real," he wrote. "and he gave me some real good advice, thanks homie." (Soulja Boy's Twitter)
