The rapper has issued an apology letter that not only admits his fault but also explains what he really means with the words.
Soulja Boy regrets the words coming out of his song which lyrics undermine U.S. military. After upsetting a number of parties for saying "F**k the troops" in his new rap video, the rapper posted a long apology letter on GlobalGrind.com, titled "I Am Deeply Sorry To All Members Of The United States Military Services And Their Families."
"As an artist, I let my words get the best of me," Soulja began his letter. "Sometimes there are things that we feel, things that we want to express, and when we put them on paper and speak them out loud, they can come out wrong. When I expressed my frustration with the US Army, not only did my words come out wrong, I was wrong to even speak them."
Giving his "sincerest apology to all members of the United States military services, as well as their families that were offended", Soulja explained what he really meant with the lyrics. "I have seen thousands and thousands of our brave men and women get killed in battle and often times, I think for what? A lot of people in this country are struggling to make ends meet and I think a lot about what if we had never gone to war," he wrote.
