New York, New York, how many L’s are you going to take? What has happened to create a world where Soulja Boy can come at one of your most recognizable and successful names, call him a fag, challenge him to written and freestyle battles, and the response is “I don’t have a problem with Soulja Boy”, and then a couple of lame ass tweets? Let’s break this bullshit down piece by piece.
Fabulous, like tons of other people, made some jokes about the Kat Stacks, Soulja Boy drama on twitter. Quotes courtesy of Hip Hop DX:
Kinda funny, but nothing really that memorable. Yet for some reason Soulja Boy took offense and had a lot to say in response:
Soulja Boy: “lol fuck that lame ass washed up rapper named fabolous thats a gay ass rap name anyway”
“I tell you what fabolous get yo weak ass on wax and spit them weak ass bars so I can shit on you boy”
“I will murder that nigga fab in a freestyle battle he garbage compared to soulja boy”
Those are some pretty bold words coming from a person that couldn’t write a verse that would have been acceptable in the 90’s if his life depended on it. Not only that, but from someone who had recently been aired out for being a limp dick premature ejaculator, which is a combination God didn’t even know existed. I mean one or the other isn’t that uncommon, but busting a nut before you get hard? That’s some shit.
Now Fab’s not just from New York, but from Brooklyn. A place that forever has talked about themselves as somewhere where you will be punched in the face for just looking at someone the wrong way. A place that has proclaimed themselves as the mecca of lyricism and true talent in rap. So one would assume that Fab would bring the situation into one of two scenarios:
1. A Physical confrontation. Preferably involving Fabulous himself (I mean Soulja Boy looks like he’d be a maximum of 130 pounds after going on the Super Size Me diet), but most likely involving one his goons, like in the Kat Stacks situation where his brother beats on a girl.
2. A rap beef. Where Fabulous takes these comments as inspiration to finally go off on the talentless fucks that New York has been bitching about for years. And no they aren’t talking about every Southerner Jay Electronica, just the pathetic excuses for MC’s. Fab, as a commercially successful rapper that’s plugged into the major media outlets actually has a golden opportunity to come out with something legit, and be a hometown hero. Prove the value of lyricism and wit on a wide scale.
Whichever path Fabulous chose, he wasn’t going to allow a man who refers to himself as a “Pretty Boy”, and rides around with Lil B, a man who refers to himself as a “Pretty Bitch”, call him gay right? Wrong. Loso did everything short of straight up apologizing to Mr. Tell ‘Em.
You can watch the whole interview if you want, but the important part is this quote about the Soulja Boy situation:
“Everybody knows what Kat Stacks does and what she’s about. It was just funny to me. I just did it out of good humor, I have nothing against Soulja Boy. Soulja Boy’s a talent, he’s young, he’s doing his thing as a young man in this industry…I had a little fun on Twitter, I have no beef with Soulja Boy, hopefully he doesn’t have a personal gripe or beef with me. It’s just in good humor, people joke with me all the time. They have a Fab chipped tooth page of me on Twitter.”
No beef? Ok, you want to take the high road. “Soulja Boy’s a talent”? Are you fucking kidding me? “Hopefully he doesn’t have a personal gripe or beef with me”? It sounds to me like dude is straight up scared that he’d lose to someone who’s less skilled than the guys who clean and suck the shit out of Port-A-Potties. Still, after that interview I bet he wiped the sweat off his brow, took a deep breath, and said “at least it’s over”. Wrong again. Soulja didn’t give a fuck, he was still angry. So he decided he’d stick to his originality and let Fab have it one more time on Twitter. Quotes courtesy of Thisis50.com
Soulja Boy: “one of my followers tell me why these old new york rappers thats washed up mad at my generation? why tryna beef with youth? thats dumb”
“I been showing love since I got in the game now it’s f*ck these n*ggaz. I’m saying the truth from here on out. and this n*gga sucks. str8 up”
“I aint takin no mo sh*t. go spread the word. u f*ck boys want my name in yo mouth umma demolish yo a**. straight up. bow bow bow get ready”
“and you still a wack a** rapper boy I said it @myfabolouslife”
“you wack a** industry n*ggaz better startin showin respect with yo corny a** bars boy @myfabolouslife”
“you are the prime example of an “industry n*gga” @myfabolouslife know that boy. know that. with ur weak a** raps ok im done. lame a** n*gga”
After fighting words like those, someone was for surely gonna get the shit kicked out of them right? Or at the least Loso was going to lyrically prove why he names his mixtapes shit like No Competition, The Wake, and The Funeral, right? Wrong one more time. Are you fucking kidding me? Twitter again?
Fabulous: “Let me find out, #SouljasCokeHabit got him Amy Wine’d out.. Got em hooked like he threw a fishing line out..”
“Gucci Mane & Jeezy are not @SouljaBoy’s friend.. They are #SouljasCokeHabit ATL connects”
“#SouljasCokeHabit made him talk shit about me on twitter. Then he sobered up, and deleted the tweets #TypicalCokeHeadShit”
“#SouljasCokeHabit made him believe those gucci pillow cases he had on his bed on MTV CRIBS was REAL.. #FakeNiggasDoFakeThings”
“@SouljaBoy’s biggest hits weren’t on his albums.. They were on his dresser in a hotel room wit Kat Stacks. Thank #SouljasCokeHabit”
I ain’t going to lie, the last comment was legit funny, but even if Fabulous wrote a hundred comments as good as that one, he has not even come close to maintaining his dignity. It’s not like Soulja Boy is a nobody. We all understood when 50 refused to reply to no names like Bang Em Smurf, and why Jay Z has stayed silent over the whole Brian Pumper garbage of a diss. But Soulja Boy is famous with a strong global fan base. It’s unmerited, but it’s unfortunately a reality. The upside is that he’s an easy target, that wants a lyrical battle, and literally has no chance of winning it. Yet Fab passes on the opportunity, and in turn allows himself to look like a bitch who can be punked by anyone. God New York what happened? That shit has gotta hurt.
