Military Stores

We're BOYCOTTING Soulja Boy

9/6/2011 4:00 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

A system of stores run by the United States Department of Defense will NOT be stocking Soulja Boy's upcoming album -- so long as it contains the rapper's army-bashing song lyrics.

LTC Thomas Shrader from the Army and Air Force Exchange Service -- an agency run by the USDOD -- tells TMZ, Soulja's "Respect My Hustle" will have no place on the shelves of its 3,100 facilities ... whose MILLIONS in profits go to benefit armed services programs every year.

As we previously reported, the outrage is all over the rapper's new song "Let's Be Real" -- in which Soulja raps, "F**k the FBI and the army troops." Soulja has since apologized.

Shrader tells TMZ, Soulja's lyrics "are unacceptable and not the kind of thing we would want to market.”

But there's still hope for SB -- if the song ultimately gets cut from the album ... we're told the Exchange will reevaluate the ban.

Doesn't everyone already boycott Soulja Boy? Who actually pays for this guy's music?

Great, maybe now the white-Con racist who calls himself Stiletto will be happy. Although something tells me he won't stop putting out the same CON garbage about blacks trying to ruin the perfect WASP culture of the U.S. until there's some blood sacrifice by black people.

Punk ass biatch!!! Go back and play gangsta. You're such a hard core gangsta...Try and be a fraction of what the MEN in uniform are. Tired of the wanna be gangsta "rappers" (ie reatards that walk around "practicing" "rapping".) You look like mental patients

S-Boy supporters need to stop saying that our freedom of speech is being taken away. No one is taking it away. S-Boy can say what he wants, when he wants. The people who dislike or is offended by what he says have the right to choose to not sell his CD's or listen to his so-called music. That's exactly what we are doing. It is our right as American's. Our Soldiers fight and defend all our rights, even his but we don't have to help pay his bills by buying his "opinion".

He's creating controversy in order to gain publicity for a product no one would otherwise be interested in. That's the issue.
