Soulja Boy Complains That The “Old School” Isn’t “Kickin’ Back Knowledge” To The Younger Generation
Soulja Boy added his voice to the debate over the generational split in Hip Hop. The “I did it first” rapper received a lot of press for his provocative comments and internet feuds, and his career is full of examples. Soulja Boy is well known to criticize artists that came before him and helped pave the way, but he, like many others, refused to accept OGs’ negative statements about younger rappers.
Soulja criticized older Hip Hop generations for failing to teach those who followed in their footsteps during a recent Instagram Livestream. “Don’t get it f*cked up, you gotta work hard, you know what I’m saying? I feel like in a way, the motherf*ckin’ game failed us because they not kickin’ back enough knowledge to the young n*ggas.”
“They not telling the young n*ggas how to get no money, y’all not tellin’ the young n*ggas how to go out and run up some bands. That’s why my young n*ggas out here going crazy, airing sh*t out, spinning sh*t. ‘Cause I feel like, they failed us in a way, like, all the OGs, y’all supposed to be kickin’ knowledge. Y’all supposed to be kickin’ game to the young n*ggas so they really runnin’ up a bankroll.”
He added: “And that’s the problem! I’m trying to tell you, bro, like, n*ggas look back and be like, ‘Where did this n*gga go wrong’ or ‘What happened?’ I’m like, y’all not kicking back no knowledge to the young n*ggas.”
