Soulja Boy Apologizes To U.S. Army Troops


Souja Boy Apologizes To The Army
Soulja Boy has issued an apology to U.S. Army troops after releasing a controversial song that dissed them and the FBI.

As previously reported Soulja was the subject of criticism last week for his track “Lets Be Real” that contains the lyrics “Fawk the FBI and Fawk all the army troops.”

Watch Soulja Boy’s “Let Be Real” video below:


Since then a number of soldiers have responded angrily to Soulja including aspiring rapper Sgt. Leo Dunson who challenged the “Crank Dat” star to change his name.

Now obviously seeing the error in his ways, Soulja’s issued an apology to the army in an open letter.

Speaking to the troops he writes,

As an artist, I let my words get the best of me. Sometimes there are things that we feel, things that we want to express, and when we put them on paper and speak them out loud, they can come out wrong. When I expressed my frustration with the US Army, not only did my words come out wrong, I was wrong to even speak them. So, I write this to give my sincerest apology to all members of the United States military services, as well as their families that were offended by my most recent lyrics.

As a young man who grew up in the post-9/11 era, I have watched our country fight two wars that seem like they are never going to end. I have seen thousands and thousands of our brave men and women get killed in battle and often times, I think for what? A lot of people in this country are struggling to make ends meet and I think a lot about what if we had never gone to war. Where would our economy be? Our schools, our after-school and work programs, our streets? I mean, damn, 48 people got shot in New York City just this past weekend … in 3 days … I’m not saying that it is just because of a bad economy, but at a certain point we have to take care of our own people.

In no way would I ever want to offend those who are protecting our freedoms … a lot of homeboys who I grew up with, a lot of people who come from the neighborhoods we live in … In no way do I want to hurt any of our honorable soldiers who put their lives at risk, regardless of how they feel about the two wars we fight in. I am just frustrated that we haven’t been able to bring you all home quick enough and my frustration got the best of me. I am deeply sorry.

    What does saying Fawk the troops have to do to with wanting them to come home….I call BS on this apology…


    You should thank those very troops for fighting for your freedom so that you can spew the very garbage coming out of your mouth. It is sad that children actually have this person and others like him for role models. You are the very lowest form of trash and everything that is wrong with this country!

    This guy is a joke just like his apology he should learn to think before he speaks, he deserves a good old fashion blanket party

    Should his apology be accepted? Bell No!!!!
    He young and stupid and I bet you if no one would have said something he would have kept on going. Someone should teach him a lesson. He should not be able to ever record another album again. Ban him from the entertainment industry.
