The rapper whose real name is DeAndre Way has his team work nonstop to delete all traces of the offending song from the web, and vows to never release it for purchase.
Soulja Boy and his camp continue their effort to do damage control. After issuing a public apology over his army-offending song "Let's Be Real", the "Turn My Swag On" rapper confirmed through his rep that they are taking down the track from the internet.
The representative for Soulja's management team, Debby Coda, revealed to TMZ that they along with the people from his record label have been working nonstop to remove all traces of the viral video from the web. Accordingly, they have started the cleaning since a week ago.
Beside deleting the video from online world, Debby also gave assurance that Soulja has vowed to never include the foul-mouthed song in his future albums. Saying that the music was "hastily and foolishly posted to the Internet," the rep added it will never be released commercially anywhere.
Soulja Boy has got a lot of protests after spitting the controversial lyric of "f**k the troops". The rhymer was demanded by a military veteran to apologize to all soldiers, mocked by another army member to change his famous moniker, and hit with boycott threat by Army and Air Force Exchange Service (Aafes).
Ltc Thomas Shrader from the Service, which oversees merchandise sold on military bases, calls the music "unacceptable and not the kind of thing we would want to market." Soulja's album will be banned from their shelves if the offending track makes the final cut. The boycott will be reevaluated once he agreed to exclude it from the album.
