Soulja Boy - Controversial Soulja Boy Track Axed From Album
Soulja Boy's management team has reacted to outrage at the star's controversial song slamming army troops by vowing to scrap it from his upcoming album.
The hip-hop star sparked complaints after a clip of his track Let's Be Real debuted online, showing him rapping the words, "F**k the FBI and the army troops... fighting for what? Be your own man..."
The lyrics sparked a petition calling for a boycott of his forthcoming album Respect My Hustle, and bosses at the Army and Air Force Exchange Service (Aafes), which oversees merchandise sold on military bases, vowed not to stock the disc if the controversial track makes the final cut.
The rapper issued a grovelling apology on Tuesday (06Sep11), and now his representatives are trying to remove the video from the internet.
His spokesperson, Debby Coda, tells Tmz.com the track has not been approved for the album and will never be available for purchase, adding that Soulja Boy is willing to perform free shows for the military to apologise.
