Soulja Boy Tell ‘Em recently spoke on the opposition he has faced within hip-hop and claimed to have ended the careers of several rappers who challenged him.
While not naming anyone in particular, Soulja Boy described the negative attention he’s received since becoming a force in rap music.
“You always gonna face different chapters that you go through in life, period, with whatever you’re doing,” he explained in an interview. “Haters come with every job and whatever you’re doing in life, so you just got to do what you do. I just outshined all my haters. I done had beef with a lot of different artists, I done had a lot of artists done had different opinions about my music but at the end of the day though, it’s gonna take a whole lot to stop me. I done ended a lot of n*ggas’ careers, you feel me? And before I get out the game, I’ma cause hell.” (Rolling Out TV)
The rapper recently went head-to-head with Bow Wow, who recently retired from hip-hop, before squashing their beef earlier this year.
First starting over their alleged “Lambos” claiming each others are leased or rented, then later saying they wanted to race. Things went to the next level when Soulja Boy said Bow Wow’s album was garbage and he would leak it to which Bow Wow said Soulja Boy is only in rap because of him. Soulja Boy then released a video explaining how the beef went from friendly to disrepectful then later Bow Wow called Soulja Boy and the two young rappers made up. (Rap Basement)
He also fired verbal jabs at Ice-T last summer.
“I swear, I respect everybody who started this, who opened the doors for young artists like me to get in to the hip-hop and music industry,” Soulja Boy said in a video. “I know Ice-T is a legend in the game and he’s a veteran and all that, but n*gga once you tell me ‘Eat a d*ck’, and I hear that on the radio in my city–the reality behind it is that the game has changed. There’s new and young n*ggas out and eating and nobody wanna hear that old sh*t no more.” (YouTube)
Soulja Boy previously spoke with SOHH about the Internet’s impact and how he uses it to keep fans up-to-date.
“The stuff that I put on YouTube man, basically it’s just like everyday life,” he said. “I keep a camera on me 24/7 so anytime I see something that I want to put up or I see something funny or I think that a lot of people would want to see like me over in Tokyo, the experience when I was in London or the ‘Rich N*gga Series’ that I got on YouTube.” (SOHH)
