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."

Did he really think he could record a song with those lyrics and it not cause an uproar. Bash the same men and women along with their families who give him the freedom for his ignorance. Why make such a stupid song. All I can say pure stupidity. He and his music should be banned in the US. Send his rear end to the front lines.

FREE shows for the Military? You mean..he'll perform FREE for the folks he blatantly disrespected? WHAT SERVICEMEN/WOMEN ARE ACTUALLY GOING TO WANT TO SEE THIS TRASH PERFORM NOW??? If its "f*** the army troops" then his ass needs to find another country to fight in that WON'T protect his sleezy ass when SHTF.

*********************************
Youre missing the point. This idiot, ingrate takes advantage of the rights our country and military provide him. He has the right to free speech because of those that serve afford him that right. Just as those of us that are offended have the RIGHT to NOT support him and use our own freedom of speech to let him know what we think.

BTW.. what does trailering a cow have to do with our military. Unless of course you meant kowtow.
I dont believe that anyone is kowtowing to our military. Its a matter of respect and appreciation for what they do on a daily basis.

duh    

he meant what he said or he never would have said it. He and his team are obviously trying to do some MAJOR damage controll. Though i dont think it will make a difference, you cant take back words that F'd up especially when 9/11 is so close(they chose the timing on purpose to get more attention i bet).I hope that all army/military bases still dont sell this guys crap (since he is only saying sorry due to bad press)Free shows from someone who isnt even relevent, not a good selling point

This is just a publicity stunt--shame on him and his team for saying these things especially so close to 9/11. The bunch is seriously lacking morals to trying to gain publicity from 9/11 by trashing soldiers who protect this country.


bet ya he still looks over his shoulder after this

As Pie said, he wouldn't have sung those lyrics if he didn't believe them.

It was thought. It was put on paper. It was practiced. It was recorded. It was released. Too late to take it back. It's done.

Whats done is done - He's not "sorry" - he cut the song right?

Let this little piece of **** - write the ASVAB - if he passed, go to ARMY Basic, then AIT, then off to war and see how he does. F**k him.

To his PR team "Debby" - screw you too - trying to make up for it - washing it over. Your just as bad as he is in my book.

It hurt his brand - now he's sorry. Free speech comes at a cost you little wannabe. I would like to see him stand against any Army Soldier - Male or Female.

PS - I do not suggest any Meet and Greets with the Army - we are a tight group - you hurt one of us - you have hurt all of us. Marines, Army, Navy, Air force, and yes, even the Coast Guard.
