Ice-T vs Soulja Boy

We're not gonna stay neutral on this one.

Yes, Ice T made a good point. Soulja Boy's music lacks substance. For those of us who appreciate lyrics as well as a good beat, Soulja Boy doesn't do it. But Soulja Boy has every right to do his own thing, 'cos that's what hip-hop is all about.

Hip-hop was going downhill a few years ago, and it's because the lyricists were vanishing. But we now have Lupe Fiasco, Kanye West, and the legendary MC's like Common, Nas, and Jay-Z.

Soulja Boy enforces the negative stereotype of rap music. Loud beats and repetitions of h***, b***, and you know the rest. It's ringtone music. It's not that great.

But at the same time, we all danced to "Superman that hoe," so maybe Ice should stop being an angry old man, and do the Soulja Boy dance too...

Ice-T does NOT need to be exchanging words with a 17 year old kid. Let Soulja Boy do his own thing, you do yours.

But for now, the winner is... ICE-T.

Thoughts?

I don't think the winner is ice t because he really should a shamed of himself for saying something like that about a kid, why is he doing this it's just stupid. Everybody knows there is different typs of rap these days,Soulja is a child who is making money for himself and his family. What the hell is wrong with that, he's not out here gangbanging, leave him alone. Ice-t is a messy ass old man for going there, those words should not have been said by him it makes him look bad, like a grumpy old pitbull trying to eat a young pitbull.

Ice-t is too old to rap so he should stick with law and order or whatever show he plays on
