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.

I served in the navy and the army all three of my children are military, as are all three of my brothers, I lost a brother-in-law in the initial war with iraq, I think this person, I will not credit him as a performer, has little to no talent, and little gonads as we approach 9/11 in a country where young people are still giving their lives so he can spout profanity to raise his own felling of importance, if he were only talented enough to write real lyrics, i grew up in kansas city in the projects and went to a school full of black people with a much larger vocabulary, greater talent and a feeling of pride in self and country that they used to gain access to a better life so perhaps he should pull up his designer jeans, put on the real army green and join these soldiers in the field lets see if he can do a real job, and please people stop acknowledging his vulgarity it is not talent but a desperate attempt to gain the income of some of the dollars earned by these soldiers he is disrespected, you can defuse this man quit listening he is really only important if we let him continue to think he is

I think its funny how big his balls get on the microphone but I would like to see him rap this song for the troops in person.. this kid is a punk and he can't rap worth a **** anyways. maybe he should change his name to something he knows the meaning of.. he obviously is clueless to what a REAL soldier is

A child knows that even negative attention is still attention.
He is a child looking for attention.

I normally avoid **** like this but little boy it deserves a comment. No matter what you feel about the military didn’t your people ever tell you it’s just some **** that you don’t say. All that money and we wish you had a brain for that now would be a great time to rethink the staff that allowed you to come out sounding like the a jerk and idiot. (Yes there are far stronger words I could be using but frankly you don’t deserve them. I need to make sure you can read them since you obviously did not pass the common sense test or the trials for that game show…ARE YOU SMARTER THAN A FITH GRADER!!) Hell even a child knows better than to say certain crap in public regardless to how they feel. Question since you are so bold and daring why have you not gone oversea to check on what troops go through before talking ****. Oh wait that would take away from the time you spend playing video games and doing triflen things my bad. You do own the military a huge apology for that ridiculously worded attempt of a rap and major disrespect. Let me know if anything I’m say sends you running for a dictionary or thesaurus yet? Tough kiss my ass get outta here with that **** all you are is a ******* rapper trying to end his career early and I hope that it crashes and burns. ***** do something real if your about something, let us see you put in some real work. Don’t just rap about it be about it!!!!!!!!!!
