Snoop Dogg Endorses Soulja Boy

In the upcoming documentary, "Soulja Boy: The Movie," the controversial Atlanta rapper gets a co-sign from Snoop Dogg who says he understands Soulja Boy's struggle.

Soulja Boy may arguably be one of the most divisive personalities in Hip Hop. On one hand, he’s praised by the Wall Street Journal for his business savvy and use of social media. On the other hand, some critics say his music lacks substance and can be repetitive to say the least. But in his upcoming documentary, Soulja Boy: The Movie, the Atlanta upstart found a fellow artist who endorsed his methods.

“A lot of people don’t understand that this young man’s struggle is my struggle,” Snoop Dogg explained. “When he went and laid his records, and made is name and did what he had to do—that’s the same struggle that I went through. It’s all about bridging the gap and showing love. Old generation and new generation, let’s break them ways and respect music.”

Earlier in his career, Snoop also found himself a target for self-appointed community leaders such as C. Delores Tucker. He linked his experiences to Soulja Boy’s by adding that upcoming generations make music for their peers and said, “Couldn’t nobody old tell us shit.”

Perhaps in hopes of getting more of his detractors to make the same correlation Snoop Dogg did, Soulja Boy teamed with director Peter Spirer to show people the man behind the music so many people are divided on. Spirer has previously directed the original Beef documentary as well as Tupac Shakur: Thug Angel and Notorious B.I.G.: Bigger Than Life. Soulja Boy: The Movie is available at select retailers and via digital download beginning October 18.

    What kind of candy is that in his hand. It looks like those nasty Boston Baked Beans...

    remember when snoop dissed him? http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=W1glaTFFCSk

    Only simple-minded people will be swayed by watching this movie... the ONLY thing that can change my perception of Soulja Boy is if he actually starts making good music consistently. I have more respect for Lil B than this dude.

    Snoop is just supporting him because he made a name and some money as far as music i dont want to go there but this soulja clown got a big mouth as most of these commercial rappers.

    lol @ kids who think everyone loved Snoop when he came out...wasn't like that folks.There was a lot of beefing going , between Uncle Luke , Eazy E and his camp..and Dre's camp...it def wasn't all love.

    • Mu

      Maybe it wasn't all love on the West since Dre and Eazy-E were beefing, but make no mistake... Snoop was LOVED by hip-hop fans from every region of the U.S. before Doggystyle came out... that album is widely considered the most anticipated album in hip-hop history

    Man..soulja boy old as fuck..

  • Truth

    Yeah, but "old" people who hated on Snoop Dogg were middle-aged prudes that didn't listen to rap, and thought his music was too violent. Meanwhile, "old" people who hate on Souljah Boy are 20-something rap fans that think his music sucks. So, this Souljah Boy = new Snoop Dogg comparison is nonsense. What Souljah Boy doesn't understand is that he makes children's music. And along the way, he made a couple songs that adults like ironically. That doesn't make for rap respect. It's hilarious that Souljah Boy thinks he should be treated like Nas or something. Hey, Souljah Boy: Nas was 17, when he made Illmatic. When you were 17, you made "Souljah Boy Tell Em." You're on the same planet as Tag Team and Kriss Kross. You're not on the same planet as Nas, Snoop, Jay-Z, 50 Cent, Kanye - about 95% of the rap game. You're a Nelly, a Bow Wow, a Nick Canon. Either go to college and read some books and learn how to rap better, or shut the f-ck up and enjoy your big success with dumb songs. "Greatest Rapper Ever" isn't your lane.

    Lol, it's not like you can pay Snoop to endorse your brand or anything, which is obviously what Soulja Boy did. Fuck him. He can eat a dick as Ice T so appropriately said.

  • Fallin

    And Snoop has completely lost all cred if he didn't already over the last few years... Soulja Boy, REALLY?? HAHAHAHA

    LOL! DOESN'T SOULJA BOY CONSTANTLY DISS "OLD" RAPPERS????? SNOOP IS OFFICIALLY GARBAGE!

    • JG

      he is didnt say "Soulja Boy spit fire!". He is cosigning Soulja Boys hustle, as he came up in the game from nothing and had mad old head hating on him. We all know he cant rap for shit but when he first dropped he had a knack for making catchy hits, and he got rich off ringtone rap you gotta respect that. He is a business man above all else

    • Obi Patrick

      Nah I dont think he'd have the balls but still the fact that Snoop Dogg is actually cosigning this moron discredits his excuse for not being there when Pac was smashin on Biggie. It's so depressing for hip hop.

  • Obi Patrick

    Man this isn't a good look at all, I do see where he's coming from but aint this the same nigga that dissed him in the first place? make your mind up nigga

    no one should ever put soulja boy in the "Hip-hip" category. in hip hop you gotta be saying something, you gotta have concepts, and have some sort of point your getting across to the listener.....but soulja boy? pretty boy swag? what the fuck. this stupid mother fucker isnt even Rap. ITS GARBAGE! and dudes try to act like his shit is creative when in all actuality its killing rap. its making it harder for REAL talent to get noticed cuz most fuckin faggots only listen to beats.....what ever happend to real rap motha fuckas?......p.s. FUCK WAKKA TOO that nigga straight trash too.

  • Youknow

    Yeah peeps using his age to make him sound better, nas was 18 when he started making illmatic, rakim was 19 when paid in full came out. Nuff said

  • TRUTH

    Snoops understands Souljah boys struggle......what? His struggle not to rhyme like he never read a book in his life? I'm sorry...But if Tupac and Biggie,, rose out the grave to endorse Souljah boy..it would change the fact..this niggaz sucks...And I'm tired of people using his age...he young...bullshit..I done seen some young cats 10, 12,,15,,,years old make better music and rap better than this dude.

    • barry

      I agree. He got no skills period. I can't believe there making a film about him. Watch out for a film called the Art Of Rap. Maybe he'll learn something from that. Maybe!!
