We reported yesterday how Souja Boy was in trouble with the U.S Military for his track Let’s Be Real. A retired sergeant named Leo Dunson took umbrage to the lyrics ‘F—k the army troops’ and not only responded in rap repartee, but started a petition to ban Soulja Boy‘s music from playing in any military base across America.
Part of his sweeping apology has been blogging about the song writing, “I write this to give my sincerest apology to all members of the United States military services, as well as their families that were offended by my most recent lyrics.” And you know what, guys? It sounds really sincere, so give it a read and let us know what you think.
Part two of his making up for this debacle has been removing the song from the internet and promising to all and sundry that it’s not on his album. Debbie Coda — one of his people — says the song will never be available for purchase and wasn’t even approved for the album. Apparently “someone” went and put it on the ‘net without checking in first. TMZ was also told that Soulja’s ready to arrange meet-and-greets as well as free shows for the army to show how apologetic he is. We think he should be given a break. People screw up sometimes but if they’re ready to make up for it — why not give them a shot?
