Souljah Boy says those slave master comments he made were a joke.
Last week the internet was filled with rage inregards to Souljah's comments to BET's Toure.
"Oh wait! Hold up! Shout out to the slave masters! Without them we'd still be in Africa. We wouldn't be here to get this ice and tattoos."
So Souljah Boy released this statement to clear the air.
Man basically what happened that day, I was at BET filming the last episode of Rap City and then the Touré dude asked me if I wanted to do an interview with him and I said no. I had seen the interview with Bow Wow and Omarion and he was like roasting them or whatever and it turned out to be bad. I was like, I’m straight, I don’t want to do an interview with you. Then, my management was like if he’s good we can do an interview with him…for promotion or whatever…I was just joking. Most of the questions he was asking me wasn’t making no sense. Like, he was asking me how I wanted to die and asking me all these questions so I thought he was joking with me. I didn’t really take it seriously. Basically it was sarcasm that got blown out of proportion.”
And to just to confirm it, StreetCred.com writer Maxine Ross asked Soulja Boy “you didn’t really mean it?” to which Soulja Boy replied “…nah. It was a messed up situation. I didn’t really mean that.”
Even with him saying that it was a joke, I still feel it was rather silly of him to kid with someone he saw "roast" his friends. If anything he should have said as little as possible. Yes people...Less is more sometimes!
