Kanye West is weighing on the war of words between Ice-T and Soulja Boy, after Ice-T said Soulja Boy was destroying hip hop and Soulja Boy fired back that Ice-T was old and out of touch, among other insults. “Soulja Boy is fresh ass hell and is actually the true meaning of what hip hop is sposed to be,” Kanye writes at kanyeuniversecity.com. “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 sh**? Niggas 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 sh**… He just put it over some steel drums which is also some Nas sh** if you had the 2nd album cassette with the bonus track ‘Silent Murder’ on it. In closing… new niggas get ya money $$$$$$$$$$ Keep this sh** fresh and original…. ain’t no fu**in’ rules to this sh** and that’s what real hip hop is to me.”
