Yesterday we reported on the controversial rap song from Soulja Boy that insulted both the American military and the FBI, as well as the apology that followed.
Today we learned from TMZ that the Military Exchanges will not be carrying Soulja Boy's new album, as long as it contains the offensive song.
From the TMZ story:
LTC Thomas Shrader from the Army and Air Force Exchange Service -- an agency run by the USDOD -- tells TMZ, Soulja's "Respect My Hustle" will have no place on the shelves of its 3,100 facilities ...
Perhaps Soulja Boy's record label realized that a quick apology is not going to make this problem go away. Earlier today the rapper's management confirmed that the song will NOT be included on his upcoming album.
The official statement from Debbie Coda of Soulja's team claims that the song was never intended to be released, not on the internet or via the new album.
"Let's Be Real" was hastily and foolishly posted to the Internet - and was never approved for any album, including his upcoming Respect My Hustle.”
More news as it happens.
