Why They Hatin’ On Soulja Boy?

We all know about the things people say about him, “he has no flow,” “he is a bubble gum rapper,” “his music has no meaning,” and other things of that nature. But I had somewhat of a different thought about the dude and it wasn’t until someone said something that really caught my attention that I decided to speak on it. If you look through the archives you will see that in July I did an interview with Spokenword Artist Michelle Mosely. In the interview we where discussing the state of hip-hop and she made a very interesting point, “people are mad at Soulja Boy and I don’t understand why. The youth need something to dance too every song cant be about drugs, guns, hoe’s and pain that’s not everyone’s life. I’m not going to lie that boy makes me mad sometimes with some of his actions and words but his music is what teenagers need (fun rap).” I couldnt agree with this more! I mean sure his music doesn’t have the deepest content and his lyrics arent the best, but that doesn’t make him any less of an artist. Soulja Boy makes music you can dance to just like the 69 Boyz, Tag Team, and Wreks n Effect did back in the day but you didn’t hear people complaining about them now did you? what makes me laugh the most is that the same people that claim not to like his music are the same ones that are gettin’ loose to “She got a donk” in the club (lol). By me saying this doesn’t mean I like all of his music or that I agree with all of his actions because I dont, but what I am saying is that Soulja Boy has earned his place in music. So please give that anti-Soulja Boy talk a rest.

The Female Addition: Keri Hilson, lil Kim , Teyana Taylor- Turn My Swag On


If there ever was any doubt that I was a lil kim STAN then now here is proof that I am, this has got to be like the third post I’ve done on the notorious K.I.M( lol). Anyways lil Kim, Keri Hilson, and Teyana Taylor teamed up and released their own version of Soulja Boy’s “Turn My Swag On.” I loved the way Keri sang the hook and Teyana’s verse at the end of the song was the business but I cant say the same about Kim which is quite shocking. I usually love everything she touches but I couldn’t say the same about her verse on this track; so of course I had to take it to my twitter people and see what they thought of it here are some of their responses.

dreaontv@PoeticRymes I could do without the squeaky voices ON TOP of the auto tune..not the move.

DariusAmore@PoeticRymes i think kim is foolin herself.. keri sounds good. and taylor is not so bad. its a younger song. OGs like lil kim shud stay away

Daboisnick@PoeticRymes it was cool I liked it

After listening to the track a few times I could see why I wasn’t feeling Kim it was the autotune! so Kim baby I know your reading this please leave the autotune for Tpain and Kanye you are so beyond that level 🙂 hehe. On a side note all three of these women got swag for days! Peep the track and download it here.
