Soulja Boy has been known to say some dumb shit from time to time including “superman that hoe” but this one may just take the cake.
During an interview at the Black Carpet show last week, Toure asked the kid who his most hated public figure was. He couldn’t think of any public figures but he did manage to offend anyone who has a conscience.
Here’s what Torre had to say about it:
I asked him, What historical figure do you most hate? He was stumped. I said, “Others have said Hitler, bin Laden, the slave masters…” He said, “Oh wait! Hold up! Shout out to the slave masters! Without them we’d still be in Africa.”
My jaw, at this point, was on the ground.”We wouldn’t be here,” he continued, having no idea how far in it he’d stepped, “to get this ice and tattoos.”
Wow. Never mind that diamonds come from Africa. Never mind that there were many generations of pain in between leaving Africa and getting diamonds. Never mind that the long-term cataclysmic effects of subtracting about tens of millions of young, strong people from Africa over the course of a couple of centuries is a large part of the reason why Africa now appears so distasteful to you. Never mind all that, Soulja Boy. You put country first.
This is one of the dumbest things I’ve heard a rapper say in a long time. With all of the rappers trying to uplift us and encourage us to vote, there is always gonna be some dumb nigga that brings us back a few notches.
