Soulja Boy apologizes for rapping 'f--- the army troops'
Rapper Soulja Boy has rightfully apologized for the lyrics of his new song, Let's Be Real (listen to the NSFW song below), in which he says, "F--- the FBI and f--- all the army troops" after TMZ got ahold of it and lit the fuse for a lot of people connected to overseas service members. It's almost like saying something like that isn't appropriate when all you've done in your life is release a ridiculous single about, well, releasing on a woman's back.
"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," DeAndre Way wrote in a statement posted on GlobalGrind.com (read the entire apology here). "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."
Mind you, this all came out right before the 10th anniversary of Sept. 11, so his timing is impeccably bad -- and let's just note, the song sucks. He goes on to say many of his friends and neighbors are fighting in Iraq and Afghanistan, and that he was "deeply sorry" over being "frustrated that we haven't been able to bring you all home quick enough." The FBI, though, you can go to hell, apparently.
