"Let's Be Real"
Shortly before the 10th anniversary of the September 11 attacks, Soulja Boy released the song "Let's Be Real". One of the lines of the song went: "****** the FBI and the army troops ... fighting for what? Be your own man ... I'll be flying through the clouds with green." After the song was released, Soulja Boy was highly criticized by the military members and their families. He apologized, "When I expressed my frustration with the US Army, not only did my words come out wrong, I was wrong to even speak them." He adds, "So, I write this to give my sincerest apology to all members of the United States military services, as well as their families that were offended by my most recent lyrics." Representatives for Soujla Boy have indicated that the song has been pulled from his upcoming album, Respect My Hustle, and will not be available for sale. They are also attempting to remove the video from the internet.
