Ice T Regrets Making Soulja Boy Comments

Ice T reveals that he was tired of the bar being so low in Hip Hop when he made his comments about Soulja Boy.

It was roughly five years ago when Hip Hop veteran Ice T informed fellow rapper Soulja Boy to “eat a dick.” Those words from Ice T were featured on DJ Ciscos Urban Legend mixtape along with a few other comments about Hip Hop.

While speaking with Vlad TV, the “Law & Order: Special Victims Unit” star says he now regrets the comments he made about Soulja Boy. He revealed that part of his frustration at that particular moment stemmed from what he felt was a lack of difficulty in Hip Hop.

“When I came out, those statements that I made back in the day that was just an old school rapper saying ‘I want rap to stay difficult,’” Ice said. “I think that Hip Hop requires a sense of difficulty. If you a deejay. If you a rapper. If you’re a graffiti artist. If you’re a breakdancer. There has to be a sense of difficulty. That’s what makes you dope versus wack. Like ‘My breaker is better than yours. My deejay, emceeing.’ And I just felt that they were taking the bar so low on Hip Hop. Not just that kid, but other kids too. That I was like ‘Yo man, we worked so hard to get this to this point. Let’s keep it fly.’”

Ice T later revealed that his comments about Soulja Boy were never meant to be heard. He says that at the time, he was in the studio and was being verbally pushed and coached by someone who brought up the Atlanta rapper. From there, Ice T says he went off.

“At the same time I spoke on that, you got people like Lupe Fiasco spiting his ass off, you know? That was my comment,” he said. “It wasn’t a direct thing on this kid. Cause I only heard probably one record. I don’t even know…I kinda regret it. I said it because it turned me into a person that seemed like I wanted beef. That’s really not my style, you know? People feel like I got up out of the bed and went in on him. What really happened—The back of that story was we was making a record and somebody was really trying to get me to spit. And so they was like ‘Oh, yo. Such and such said you a sucka. You can’t get this kid.’ You know, they was just like verbally coaching, pushing me. And I just went off. And they taped that. And they used it to try to sell they mixtape…My little rant was never meant to be heard. It wasn’t as personal as it seemed.”

In his 2008 rant, Ice T dissed Soulja Boy, but also gave praise to a number of Hip Hop notables including Rakim and Big Daddy Kane.

"We came all the way from Rakim, we came all the way from Das EFX, we came all the way from motherfuckers flowing like Big Daddy Kane and Ice Cube, and you come with that Superman shit? That shit is garbage,” the rapper said.

  • Gucci The Realest

    Your favorite rapper wants to be as real as Gucci and this is why: - Gucci sold drugs. - Gucci killed a man. - Gucci walks around with illegal waeapons. - Gucci beats up so called fans. - Gucci throws out bitches out of his car while driving. I never heard your favorite rapper (50 Cent, Jay-Z, Nas, Mobb Deep, Ice Cube, The Game etc.) diss Gucci because your favorite rapper knows that Gucci will beat him up. FUCK ICE-T THE TV COP!

      You forgot to add that Gucci also spend so much time is a pen. Only dummies do time. If getting caught and doing time is what you consider real, then color me fake please.

    At least he admit that he was wrong for it. But deep down we all know that there is a lot of bullshit rap that covers up really good hip hop music. Now, it's like a over saturated genre. I believe the only reason Ice did that shit was because he had an album that was coming out and it was all promotion for him. Ice-T should not do music anymore. And please don't do no reality show on E!. That's what truly degraded him. I don't even fault him for the Law and Order because that shit still running. That was probably his best achievement other than his first albums in the late 80's.

    That "Superman" thing aint even hip-hop, yes it is garbage, but people likes o consume garbage nowadays, he made his money, and I aint against people making money clean. Ice just gave him too much importance when he mentioned Soulja.

    no need to apologize, those comments are still true today. plus, the bar is still as low as ever. no substance in hip hop all materialism and consumerism. rapping about selling coke, moving keys, and acting like money is everything. most of these rappers are so uneducated and probably can't even read or spell.

  • Verbal Tim

    Whatever if it was the tru reason or not it's a good point for Ice. He's one of the most influental mc's of rap history, and this kind of regret is pretty cool.

    Ice T is a fucking loser for saying this. If you have an opinion then be honest about it. Go play a TV COP!

  • D.G

    No need to kinda cop Please Ice!. the real hip-hop headz understood where you were coming from. The fact is that soulja boy is wack, and the proof is in the pudding because NOBODY is checking for this kid. He stays in the headlines for things that have nothing to do with his music

    • SPACEJAMBULL

      TRUE AND SOULJA BOY DROPS THESE MIXTAPES AND TALKS LIKE THEY'RE THE BEST THING SINCE SLICED BREAD AND THE SHIT IS ALWAYS STR8 TRASH

  • kennyken

    o.g. talk right there. Just speaking the truth, but trying his best to respect the young world lol. Ice, I feel you. Plus Lord Jamar. Jamar just blasts off with no regard though. Gotta realize there's the popularity thing in hiphop now. Not the rebellious thing anymore. Back in the day, hiphop was for the young, rebellious (almost entirely black) kid. But today, hiphop is for anything: gays, lesbians, blacks, whites, and thugs. It's more a popular mainstream thing now than rebellious. So we fighting a different animal now. And older cats, even like myself, who saw when it was "our" music, hates how it's being slung around now. But I guess the best way to see it now is that it's dead. Its not all hiphop, but the good shit that Ice is speaking on like Lupe is hiphop, but if you notice, Lupe isn't mainstream so much that he crosses over. He's still in that rebellious category, where he refuses to allow his sound to suffer for popularity.
