Veteran Milwaukee, Wisconsin rapper Soldier Boy is out with a track dissing Soulja Boy. The track includes the lyrics: “You think you’re Superman, huh, well I’m the kryptonite. The real soldier on the mic and I ain’t takin’ no sh** tonight. I’m from Milwaukee where them killers reside, I got the name Soldier Boy from all the sh** I survived. Since 95 I’ve been spittin and shi**in on competition. Most of you rappers need to stop rappin and start listenin. You’s a gimmick, a YouTube killer, an internet thug, talkin about drama knowin you never been through that cuz.” The track has since been removed from YouTube.
Bow Wow and Soulja Boy performed at Oracle Arena on Saturday (December 29) in Oakland, California during the Up Close And Personal Holiday Tour. Check out pictures from GettyImages. Watch fan filmed highlight clips from YouTube.

50 Cent is firing back at GZA after the Wu-Tang Clan rapper dissed the G-Unit mainman along with Soulja Boy at a concert in London (video). 50 said, “Recently I seen a video on YouTube, and the video was of the GZA. That’s short for the Genius. Yeah he’s the genius. I’m sure everyone else has forgotten who the GZA is also. This guy gets on the stage, and obviously he’s drunk and he starts talking about Soulja Boy, who’s 16 years old. Shout out to Soulja Boy. He had a hot song, he produced the record. Genius should shut up. Just shut up. Kids 16 years old, and we googled you, and you were born in 1966. Listen, I have an old school Chevy Impala your age. This is not even right. This doesn’t even make any sense ladies and gentleman.”
50 continued, “Listen, the genius from Wu-Tang has declared all out war on Soulja Boy, this makes no sense. Now I understand why an artist would feel a little animosity towards me, I’ve been dominating. In fact, if you like me I’m gonna wonder why. This is really upsetting to me, what’s going on with Wu-Tang right now. I hear they’re upset with the RZA. He started the Wu-Tang. Made the beats. Okay sure, yes he has all the money. His brother made 20% of everything. What’s his brother’s name Powerful? He made the money too. RZA and his brother made the money, but they deserved it. They designed it. They built it. The rest of them nigg**** was on dust, and not paying attention to what was going on at the time.” 50 then clarified before a beef with Method Man erupted that he was his favorite Wu-Tang member. YouTube has since removed the video.
In an interview with Sid Fly of optimumfilms.com, GZA clarified his recent comments – and the crowds comments – about 50 Cent and Soulja Boy at a London concert. “First of all, Soulja Boy is a young dude,” GZA said. “I would never go at him like that, it was just people in the crowd saying what they felt. I just asked them what was they saying, cause I couldn’t hear at first, but I guess they weren’t filming at the time. But I did say that 50 didn’t have any lyrics. I did say that, it’s obvious. But don’t twist it around. I said you don’t have lyrics. When it comes to talent, I didn’t think he was all that lyrical. Big deal.” Watch it below.

Gza of Wu-Tang Clan commented on Soulja Boy and 50 Cent during a concert at Koko in London, England on Sunday night (December 9), telling the audience he expected the material on YouTube. While alluding to Soulja Boy being on television all the time in the U.S. and resisting any personal attacks, the audience members who did want to diss either artist were welcomed to his microphone. Gza then said to 50, “So what, go got a lot of money now… fu** you! You got a lot of money ni**a, you don’t got talent. You got a lot of fu**in record sales, you got a lot of money, but you don’t got talent, motherfu**er.” Gza then handed the mic to an audience member – twice – who said, “50 Cent and Soulja Boy suck di**.” As for the Wu, Gza said, “Wu-Tang is forever, motherfu**er.” Watch the clip below.
