Soulja Boy Goes on Racist Twitter Rant Against Media

Soulja Boy Tell Em may be a little too comfortable posting his thoughts on his Twitter page. The Atlanta native, who has around 976,000 followers, recently went on a racist rant against the media’s portrayal of his music and image.

“Water down my music and my appearance and make me look like something I’m not,” he twittered. “These crackers don’t know who the f— I really am!!!! Then I get signed, this is where my dream slowly died… these crackaz wanna’ criticize a n–ga. Take REAL sh-t and turn it to trash. Like why? Like really. My music dream was the sh– 2 years ago before I was signed. It was everything I could ever imagine.

“Yeah I said f— all of ya’ll,” he continued. “I’m taking my money and leaving. Gonna’ go blow kush and live my 2nd dream. This rap sh-t [is] lame now.”

The rant has since been removed and replaced with more positive tweets like “follow Soulja Boy! It’s the new trend,” and “just got off stage shout out to everybody in Columbia, SC.”

The 18-year-old credits a conversation with singer- turned-actor Tyrese Gibson. “Just got off the phone with @Tyrese4Real. He gave me some real good advice,” he wrote. “Thanks homie.”

Soulja Boy is currently promoting his second release ‘!SouljaBoyTellEm’ and will drop his third album ‘The Deandre Way’ later this year.
