Soulja Boy Apologizes To J. Cole: “Sorry For The Confusion”

Last week on Lil Yachty’s podcast, A Safe Place, J. Cole shared his initial response to Soulja Boy’s 2007 breakout single, “Crank That.” His comments indicated that he was less than thrilled with the track, sparking an unexpected feud.

J. Cole’s initial comments weren’t offensive though. During the podcast, Cole had conveyed his initial skepticism toward Soulja Boy’s music during the 2007 era.

“My real friends were playing Three 6 Mafia, Lil Jon when [Soulja Boy] came out…” J. Cole said. “Whatever the f**k was poppin’, whatever new rendition of Black culture was penetrating, like, music coming up, in the South, they were on. A lot of that s**t for me artistically, and what I stood for morally as an artist, I was conflicted.”

He continued, “I turned from a hater to an appreciator. Like, what can I find that’s amazing about this? What can I find that’s good about this? What can I find that’s going on? That sh*t changed me as an artist. I became a better artist.” Cole explained how he underwent a transformation, evolving from a critic to an admirer.

Soulja Boy wasted no time in expressing his frustration upon hearing J. Cole’s remarks. Taking to the digital realm, specifically X (formerly Twitter), the rapper vented his frustrations in a social media rant that started on Friday and concluded on the following Monday.

However, in a surprising turn of events, Soulja Boy later issued an apology to J. Cole, acknowledging that perhaps he had reacted hastily. “My bad dawg. J. Cole, sorry for the confusion,” Soulja Boy admitted.

“Keep doing your sh*t. We [are] from two different worlds. I stand on what I stand on. It’s hard coming from where I did, man. I dealt with a lot of hate my whole career, so it was just messed to think it would come from you 💯.”

According to Soulja Boy, Nicki Minaj also offered her perspective, explaining that J. Cole’s comments were, in fact, a show of love and respect.
