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."

He's no dummy....as they say....even bad publicity is publicity. If not for this incredible poor choice of a "song", his latest release would not have had the mileage it has now in the press.
As a former military wife and now a military mom....I'd love to get this kid alone with my military mom friends.....

Everyone says or does real dumb things at some point in their life. This kid is no different. I think he has gone above and beyond to make up for what he did and as a 21-year Navy veteran, I forgive him. C'mon people, there are bigger problems in the world to worry about.

Screw this guy. The only reason he is apologizing and his people are retracting everything is because they saw how stupid this whole thing was towards the bottom line: money. That's it. If it weren't for the fact that this country places its military and law enforcement/emergency management teams to such high regards then him and his record label would still put this track and video out and sell it for a cheap buck. This isn't anything but greed; plain and simple. Screw this guy. I sincerely hope that he loses money on this. What a great role model.

He used to get his ass kicked at South Panola High School in Batesville, Ms. School all the damn time. He couldn't do what it takes to be a soldier. Guess that's why they call you Soulja Boy because you can't man up little bitch. You are an embarrassment.

This is all lip service, SouljaBoy's publicist trying to clean up his messes...I just googled "Let's be Real" and this piece of garbage is still posted all over the internet. It shouldn't be that hard to remove it from places like youtube! BOYCOTT anything to do with to do with this idiot and anyone else in the industry who continues to associate with him!!!!!!! He will think twice, next time he wants to insult our troops by telling them to "f" themselves!

Why do they think the army would want him to give a concert for them, and I doubt he would have anyone there to meet and greet. He's not sorry at all, he's just saying what the record company wants him to say to try to do damage control for his sorry butt. What an ass.

@SpottedFeather
You said "Freedom of speech means that you can say whatever you want without punishment." Sorry but you are wrong. People are constantly misusing and incorrectly defining what "Freedom of Speech" means. Freedom of speech means you can say what you want without being prosecuted by the government. If you go up to your boss and tell him to F off, more than likely your punishment will be you getting fired. If you are a public figure that makes your money from people buying your product, and you say something that your customer/potential customers don't like, then they will punish you buy not buying your product. Freedom of speech has nothing to do with what a private citizen does to you in response to what you say (unless the response involves something that is illegal, such as beating you down).

He does have the right to say what he wants, but he shouldn't be speaking about **** he don't know anything about, like how the Military works. The troops have no choice but to be there. They were told to be there. As a disabled combat veteran, he just needs to shut his ****** mouth and go to school and do some research on **** before you put your foot in your mouth and I signed the petition!!!
