Kanye West speaks his mind like he usually does about the recent internet beef between Soulja Boy and Ice-T. On Kanye’s Blog he just wrote a post about how he felt towards what Ice-T has to say. Kanye West stated:
Soulja boy is fresh a*s hell and is actually the true meaning of what hip hop is sposed to be. He came from the hood, made his own beats, made up a new saying, new sound and a new dance with one song. He had all of America rapping this summer. If that ain’t Hip Hop then what is? A bunch of wannabe keep it real rappers that ain’t even relevant, recycling samples trying to act like it’s 96 again and all they do is hate on new s**t? n****s always talk about the golden age but for a 13 year old kid, this is the golden age!!! That song was so dope cause everything he said had a hidden meaning… that’s Nas level s**t… he just put it over some steel drums which is also some Nas s**t if you had the 2nd album cassette with the bonus track “Silent Murder” on it. In closing… new n****s get ya money$$$$$$$$$$ Keep this s**t fresh and original…. ain’t no fuckin’ rules to this s**t and that’s what real hip hop is to me.
