Coming From The Trendsettaa Himself!

"Soulja boy is fresh ass hell and is actually the true meaning of what hip hop is sposed to be. He came from the hood, made his own beats, made up a new saying, new sound and a new dance with one song. He had all of America rapping this summer. If that ain’t Hip Hop then what is? A bunch of wannabe keep it real rappers that ain’t even relevant, recycling samples trying to act like it’s 96 again and all they do is hate on new shit? Ni*gas always talk about the golden age but for a 13 year old kid, this is the golden age!!! That song was so dope cause everything he said had a hidden meaning… that’s Nas level sh*t… he just put it over some steel drums which is also some Nas sh*t if you had the 2nd album cassette with the bonus track “Silent Murder” on it. In closing… new niggas get ya money$$$$$$$$$$ Keep this sh*t fresh and original…. ain’t no fu*kin’ rules to this sh*t and that’s what real hip hop is to me.
-Kanye West"


[I don't know where this is cited from. I pulled it off of here.]

I totally agree. To some hip-hop is a culture, to some its a genre. For me its a culture. The black community IS HIP-HOP! We breath, generate and influence hip-hop on a daily. So, when I think about it, saying Souljaboy "single handedly distroyed hip-hop" is kind of like saying, "Souljaboy, You are not from the hood. Your pants do not sag nor is your skin black." That's how I see it.

I am kind of bias on the Souljaboy issue because I love most of his music! It gets you pumped up! I don't wanna hear a lot of music about sizzurp/dying/hidden messages about sucicide all day! I want to celebrate! That's what his music is about, having FUN!
