Soulja Boy

Army-Bashing Song

WON'T Be On My New Album

9/7/2011 1:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Soulja Boy and his management team are SCRAMBLING to remove all traces of the rapper's army-bashing song from the Internet -- and they swear ... it won't come anywhere near Soulja's new album.

A rep for Soulja's management team, Debby Coda, tells TMZ, both the rapper's management and his record label have been working nonstop since Friday to take the video down off the Internet.

Debby tells us, the song "Let's Be Real" was hastily and foolishly posted to the Internet -- and was never approved for any album, including his upcoming "Respect My Hustle."

Debby insists, the song will never be available for purchase.

We're told Soulja is willing to do whatever he can to make up for the song -- which contains the lyric "f**k all the army troops" -- including free shows for the military, and meet-and-greet sessions.

As we previously reported, Soulja has apologized for the song, blogging, "I Am Deeply Sorry To All Members Of The United States Military Services And Their Families."

Good call, even though your name is permanently tainted.

The fact is he wouldn't have "sung" (using that term VERY loosely) those lyrics if he didn't believe in them and he would have never taken the videos down if there had never been any outrage.

I hope the stores continue not to sell his album and I honestly doubt the military wants any free shows from a washed up one hit wonder who wrote such offensive lyrics about them.

P.S. You can try to remove all traces of the song if you want, but it's pointless. This is the internet.

Only a matter of time before some uneducated d.bag starts commenting freedom of speech in defense of this tard failing to realize that freedom is not a one way street and if you abuse any gift you can be punished and face consequences. If you trash your parents when you live under their roof they will most likely excuse you from their residence, we should just excuse this guy from this country and all of his supporters.

Dude can apologize all he wants but he still expressed an opinion, that, while he is entitled to, that the vast majority of Americans find abhorrent and ignorant. I am sure he will continue to sell albums and make money, but I doubt he will ever sell anywhere near as well as he did before this. I also doubt he will ever make another sale to anyone in the armed forces or to anyone in their families. Nice job ruining your career.

Both my brother and my husband are soldiers in the air force. This song is extremely offensive and a slap in the face to all the men and women serving in our armed forces. As for his free military shows, I think we'll pass. If he really wants to do something, maybe donate a percentage of the money he makes from his new album to the vets.

Kind of ironic that he just happened to pick the name "soulja"
(& pretty certain sure there was no though behind it)
This person is not worthy enough to shine a soldier's boots!

Yes, there's no greater advertising or promotion like controversy.

And by the way, 'Boy'....your apology is too little and too late.

Trying to change everything it's all too late. You should of thought about that before you hit the recording booth. So Keep flying like peter pan!
I say, Do a free show it'd probably be your last show. You just keep showing the world your uneducated and ignorant.. An I hope AAFES still doesn't sell your album.

Everyone is entitled to their opinion. If you don't like it, don't listen to it. Simple as that.
