Soulja Boy is one of the most established rappers in the current hip-hop world and many fans actually agree with this fact. He proclaims himself as one of the all-time greats and his narcissism is limitless. He also made another interesting claim recently.
For the past few years, Soulja Boy has never failed to let everyone know just how influential he has been to the hip-hop industry. While Soulja Boy does hype himself up a lot, there is no denying a lot of what he says.
Soulja Boy is someone who is never afraid to speak up his mind as well. He has criticized rappers who have come before him and he also doesn’t like how the original rappers have criticized the newer generation.
While speaking during a recent Instagram Livestream, Soulja Boy took aim at older rappers for criticizing the newer generation. He also claimed that the original rappers have failed the new generation.
“Don’t get it f*cked up, you gotta work hard, you know what I’m saying? I feel like in a way, the motherf*ckin’ game failed us because they not kickin’ back enough knowledge to the young n*ggas.
They not telling the young n*ggas how to get no money, y’all not tellin’ the young n*ggas how to go out and run up some bands. That’s why my young n*ggas out here going crazy, airing sh*t out, spinning sh*t. ‘Cause I feel like, they failed us in a way, like, all the OGs, y’all supposed to be kickin’ knowledge. Y’all supposed to be kickin’ game to the young n*ggas so they really runnin’ up a bankroll.
And that’s the problem! I’m trying to tell you, bro, like, n*ggas look back and be like, ‘Where did this n*gga go wrong’ or ‘What happened?’ I’m like, y’all not kicking back no knowledge to the young n*ggas.”
Soulja Boy has made a lot of claims as being the “first rapper” for a lot of things. Regardless, he certainly has a good point and fans are likely to agree with him. We’ll have to see what’s next in store for the rapper.
