Brand Nubian rapper Lord Jamar discusses Soulja Boy's gun charges, stemming from several previous arrests, including felony gun and drug charges in 2011. Jamar believes that Soulja Boy never needed a gun in the first place, because if he's rich enough to walk around with a million dollars in jewelry, he can pay for security.
When asked about a comment tweeted by the "Zan With Dat Lean" rapper where he said, "Shout out to the slave masters! Without them we'd still be in Africa. We wouldn't be here to get this ice and tattoos," Jamar equates it to being "a sign of the times." He adds that he "feels sorry" for someone that makes comments like that, because they have no idea about real history and the depth of slavery. Unfortunately this ignorance stems for the lack of a father in our youth lives and if we don't break the cycle, this sort of ignorance will abolish the black race.
