Soulja Boy Disrespected by LeBron
This is the ultimate laugh your ass off scenario. During the week I was pretty upset with Gilbert Arenas for calling out the Cavs saying that he wanted to face them in the playoffs. It wasn’t just Gilbert who called out Cleveland — his teammate DeShawn Stevenson joined in the party calling LeBron overrated. LeBron pretty much laughed it off saying, “With DeShawn Stevenson, it’s kind of funny. It’s almost like Jay-Z [responding to a negative comment] made by Soulja Boy. It doesn’t make sense to respond.” Apparently the word made its way around to rapper Soulja Boy, and he wasn’t too happy to hear the quote:
“Someone from Interscope Records called me and sent me the quote,” Way said. “I looked and didn’t really think much about it. LeBron said something like he was Jay-Z and DeShawn [Stevenson] is Soulja Boy. I took that as [disrespectful].”
Of course you should take it as disrespectful — LeBron was dissing you both. He was using you as his figure for comparison — he called you a one-hit wonder — a hack who can’t hold a candle to the real deal. Kinda reminds me of Roy getting “Munsoned” in Kingpin. In the end, we must have sympathy for poor Soulja Boy’s plight — after all, he did nothing to get himself in the middle of this but make a cheesy song. And looks like the Wizards are already eating their words down 1-0. Smart move fellas, smart move.
