7. Ice-T Apologizes To Soulja Boy, Sort Of
Date: June 2008
What Happened: After saying that Soulja Boy single-handedly killed hip-hop and telling him to eat a dick, Ice-T seemed to have a change of heart. The part time pimp and rap-rock rebel turned actor made a semi-apologetic video directed at the young rapper and web entrepreneur.
In the video he says, “I apologize Soulja Boy for telling you to eat a d*ck. That was just in anger...Because truthfully, a brother of my caliber shouldn’t be talking down on a youngster of your age. T continued, "But as far as your music goes.. it’s garbage!...There are kids that go in the studio and really try to rap. That really sit down with a pen and write stuff...I’m talking about you’re garbage! We got to get rid of that, man. Hip-hop has to last and it ain't gonna last with you doing that Supaman bullshit.”
Complex Says: Halfway through his apology Ice-T must have realized that there’s virtually no coming back from telling someone to “eat a dick.” Obviously, this is chess, not checkers.
