Soulja Boy Claims Nas ‘Killed Hip-Hop’
Rapper Soulja Boy Tell Em took to his blog, once again, to stir up some controversy. This time around Queens, N.Y. emcee Nas is his latest target. According to Soulja Boy, Nas killed hip-hop by stating that it was dead. “He came out publicly and said, ‘Hip-Hop is dead’ and then after that everybody started saying ‘hip-hop is dead,’” he says sitting at a table with friends.
“If Nas would’ve never said hip-hop died then they would’ve never had that terminology.” The Atlanta rapper went on to say that Nas “messed up everybody’s money” by publicly claiming the death of the genre. “He killed his own career when he said that.”
No stranger to controversy, the 18-year-old rapper has been in the news lately for his candid blog entries which find him giving his fans a look into a day in his life. Recently the rapper publicly apologized to his fans and their parents for his sometimes obscene comments and promised to be a better role model.
His second album, ‘iSouljaBoyTellEm,’ was released earlier this month selling over 40,000 units in its first week compared to his 2007 debut which sold over 100,000 records in its first week.
