Soulja Boy Learns The True Meaning of Satire

soulja_boy-teeth.jpgExactly one week after the news broke that Soulja Boy wished he could thank slavemasters for being able to bring us from Africa to enable us to acquire "ice and tattoos," comes the inevitable apology. The "ringtone rapper" is now insisting that his comment was taken out of context. Tourè's interview, Soulja Boy insists, was not something he actually wanted to do. Believing the interview was be a mock interview because most of the questions "wasn't making no sense," Soulja Boy decided to up the ante and show his ass by delivering an answer so shocking that most Hip Hop media outlets didn't cover it

The only problem (and there are several) is that the interview wasn't a mock interview at all. Interviewer Tourè was administering the Proust questionnaire in an attempt to ask questions not typical of the usual questions asked of rappers. In the original article, Tourè explains that,  

I decided it'd be fun to give all the rappers part of the Proust questionnaire. I thought it'd be a way to get beyond image and into who they really are. Most of the guys gave good, thoughtful, intelligent, sensitive answers. I asked Juelz Santana, "How would you like to die?" He said, "Loved."

A quick glance at the Proust questionnaire reveals it to be an objective list of questions that could reveal some deep-seated drives and emotions...if answered correctly by someone not so intent upon looking at an objective answer such as "What historical figure do you most hate?" as a chance to act like a callous, immature fool. 

Satire, when well executed can be effective, exposing, and quite funny. Soulja Boy's answer was not any of these things. Despite the obvious insecure idiot that he has been exposed as being, the only thing Soulja Boy has further proved about himself is that he is not smart enough to know when an interview is truly a joke. Maybe now the media can now collectively leave this man-child alone until he has proven himself worthy of being someone worth questioning.

  1. I dont know whom I should be mad with, this dumb fool or his parents for not educating him. I mean who needs an education when you can "superman a hoe", right? There's a scene from a movie called a soldiers story and in the movie MSG Waters tells a story about a black guy who dressed up like a monkey for the white soldiers. Well we have our our version his name is Soulja Boy

  2. This guy is a dumbass, plain and simple. It's amazing that someone with enough marketing sense to turn his first single(and dance) into a global phenomenon, can be so ignorant on so many levels.
    Maybe he's doing this to keep his name in the news...Either way, he deserves to get the white sunglasses slapped off his face for saying that LOL

  3. Check out his latest attempt at killing what little sanity thats left in todays world.."Bird Walk"...its about going to the klub and walking like a bird. Creative dont ya think? If nobody shows him any attention he will die from it and hence all our problems would be solved.

  4. Can we send Soulja Boy to Guantanamo? Cultural / intellectual terrorism.

  5. If he spent less time coming up with those ridiculously xeroxed dances & more time with a book, he probably would've had SOME CLUE what he said was beyond idiotic. If no one complained, it would've been business as usual. "Crank dat Slavemaster!

  6. Is there any way to get this fool from under Will.I.Am's video? He's disturbing my visual on the front page.
    Baby teeth and mean-mugging has never been sexy.

  7. his response, "wasn't making no sense," says it all.

  8. He is just....oh annoying and ignorant. I actually feel sorry for those who support this fool..I'll keep them in my prayers.

  9. This hapless, ignorant child makes me itch.
