Soulja Boy

RIPPED By Military Vet

For Anti-Army Rap

9/5/2011 11:10 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

A proud military veteran is demanding an apology from Soulja Boy -- after the rapper posted a video saying, "f**k the army troops."

Soulja ignited a wave of controversy this week over his new song, "Let's Be Real" -- which includes the lyrics:

"F**k the FBI and the army troops ... fighting for what? Be your own man ...
... I'll be flying through the clouds with green like I'm Peter Pan."


TMZ spoke with Fred A. Flores -- a disabled Marine Veteran who is now a commissioner for the L.A. County Veteran’s Advisory Commission. Flores tells us, "It's a very offensive statement ... especially with the 10th anniversary of 9/11 coming up."

Flores -- who has two children currently serving in the military -- calls Soulja "Ungrateful" ... adding, "He should apologize to ALL armed forces."

"[The rap] is very irresponsible," Flores stated ... "especially for a person who is an entertainer for the youth of our country."

Soulja Boy's rep refused to comment.

Most posters on this site already know about the FBI Fusion Centers in each state created so FBI agents can post responses to stories like this one so it would appear that a lot of people dislike Soulja. The technique is called Manufacturing Consent.

for the uneducated and the uneducable

high school dropout can't find work so he joins the Marines to Semper Fi
and collect some money.
High school dropout is sent to Paris Island to be all he can be. He is trained to kill women and children and a occasional freedom fighter trying to protect his wife from being raped by Mr Semper Fi.
High school dropout ships out to invade Iraq for USEmpire and US oil companies.
American oil companies are struggling with the problem of Peak Oil.
Peak oil means we no longer have a infinite supply of oil.Maybe you saw the do***entary film END OF SUBURBIA see

high school drop out didn't because his high school teachers were too busy DUMBING him down

High School dropout manages to kill a couple hundred women and children while throwing in a occasional rape. Mr Sempi Fi has now been transformed into Mr serial killer.
Mr high school dropout/serial killer now begins to experience extreme depression from his actions. Mental Wealth workers call it Post Traumatic
Stress Syndrome. But the only people who experience traumatic stress in Iraq are the Iraqi women being raped by Semper Fi's before they shot and killed them.
Good thing serial killer/high school dropout has never read the research
of Ian Stevenson MD whose groundbreaking study of 3,000 children who remember previous lives provides the science for the existence of reincarnation. see

What this means for high school dropout is that he will be coming back
again for another life . Of course so will the people he murdered , so for practical purposes he has another couple hundred lives he has to live getting "wacked" by the life forms he semper fi'd.

The difference this time is the raped and murdered have had some time to ponder while they wait for him to pass over, how they will "do" Mr Semper Fi- the high school drop out serial killer.

Mr high school dropout comes back from Iraq out of work unless he re-enlists. There are not to many job openings for serial killers until he lands a job working with his be all you can be buddies at the local police department or the FBI.

I don't think he is sorry at all I think all he is doing is trying to save his record deal. Such a disrespectful man. Saying sorry doesn't cut it when our military who are there hearing this song an fighting for his ask to be safe. We are an army family here. And god bless the other troopes of all forces.

I'm in the military if you have something to say, say it to my face, I will respond with "You are welcome, and that I am willing to go anywhere, fight any battle, and defend any American so that you say what you want and to live in peace." Now that you know were I stand I think souljaboy is dumb because he told me to be my own man when he is just like any other rapper out there. He talks like them, walks like them, dresses like them, and entertains like them. He is the least individual person out there. He is an artist and his lyrics show a direct link between his ignorance and disrespect and his lousy record sales. I'm sorry souljaboy but you're not Jay-z, Eminem, or Tupac and you will soon be forgotten in the music industry. Thanks for trying, next youtube rapper please!

Very primitive mind...He may have made a ton of money selling his silly songs, but he just shot his career to hell! I am a retired US Navy Chief Petty Officer and I have seen idiots like this come and go before. He had better find a great investor to hire to make money on the money he has in the bank, because he will be flat broke three years from now. You had better make a RAP Song telling everyone how DUMB you were to make such a comment!!!!

Thanks to TMZ for putting this out there.
Seems Soulja Boy made the unfortunate mistake of underestimating our military and the military community. He did not just disrespect the Army with his stupidty, he disrespected the Marines, Air Force, Navy and Cost Guard (past, present and future).
No apology accepted. It's too late and not enough. And your lame excuses only add insult to injury. Not sincere and only a futile attempt to save his sorry butt because we stood up and introduced ourselves.
Pull the CD, donate proceeds to any one of hundreds of organizations to benefit the troops, visit a VA, visit the family of a fallen troop, then and only then will I even entertain the idea of forgiving.

He is an idiot. If it wasnt for our troops he wouldn't have freedom. The world can live without his "music" we cannot live without freedom!
