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."

Shame on you. You do realize that those people you are bashing are fighting or did fight for YOUR freedom to say what you want to say. That being said, I am going to use my right to say what I want to say and that would be F right Off Soulja Boy.

Who cares if the song was never approved. This is still a song that he came up with and actually thought was okay. Completely disrespectful to the people who defend his freedom of speech every day. They risk their lives so he can have one!!!

He only apologized because he realized he lost nearly all of his fans.

It's still the matter that he even had those lyrics in the song. Whether or not it gets out or gets sold is irrelevant when you think about that.

I have never seen such such a display of ignorance, thoughtlessness, or self absorbed narrow-mindedness. He is just a young, stupid thug, who thinks a life of street violence and foul language makes him tough. He gives real black musicians a bad name. He has never seen the horrors of real war, or the trials that a real solder has to live through. He is no better then a traitor, and that "apology", was probably written by his horrified publicist who knows their firm is about to take a huge hit in the wallet from his wide open mouth.

Hey...DeAndre, I know you don't listen to country music, but try googling the Dixie Chicks, and see how well their carer did after they bashed American troops.

Why would you make a song with those lyrics in the first place? What were you thinking? Don't see your but in the army or any other branch of the military for that matter!!!!!

Tell the F#!*er to get his stupid A## out to the WAR, if he wants to be sorry!!! Let the Soldier watch him cry to his mommy when the first rocket hits next to him. We will see how hard he really is. I bet then he will be kissing the boot soles of the Soldiers, for them to take him back to MOMMY!!!!

You can remove the song from the internet all you want, I'll just keep uploading it and sharing it so EVERYONE can see what a piece of **** you are. WE THE TROOPS... are the reason you have the right to make your garbage ass albums in the first place.

WE THE TROOPS are the reason you even have the right to make your garbage ass music, and you have the nerve to say **** THE TROOPS?? You deserve to die a slow death... something like, AIDS... seems appropriate. Your music is garbage, always has been garbage, and especially now, will always be garbage. I hope a combat vet bumps into you on the streets and beats the **** out of you.

Anybody that actually wants to meet with him after him saying **** all the army troops is pathetic. He did this during a time of war. His music should not be sold on military installations and all of the military and anyone that respects the military or their freedom should boycott him. Respectfully a pissed off Marine

First of all, you don't apologize with an excuse... you ingrate. Second of all, you individualized each soldier with their decision to fight as a unit. So if you were angry with the entire unit as a whole entity you would have not made such stupid remarks about being your own man. Your apology is not even relevant to your words. This apology is joke. Being a real man is about being accountable, sincere, and humility when wrong. You have done no such thing and the men who have those characteristics are real men from the military.
You define those who raise you and let me tell you.... you don't deserve recognition not even for your blatant disrespect you have for your country, but your loved ones should be recognized through guilt by association.
Your child mentality of an excuse is worthless and you have no appreciation for what these men gave you, the opportunity to have your lavish lifestyle. A true struggling artist who made it big would have an understanding and sincerely humility along with pride in where he came from.
These soldiers are not even concerned about coming home right away, they are more concerned about completing their mission in its entirety. They do not run or they do not hide behind their problems... perhaps its your nature to do so as seen here, you have obviously hid behind your P.R. and your phoney apology, in full retreat.
Stand behind your word if you really feel that way, but don't insult us with your lies about where your anger came from, because it was in no way, shape, or form to benefit this country by any means, but to yourself. Although, I guess that is expected coming from thug like yourself.
