Soulja Boy knows how to become a trending topic. The rapper has made headlines again. this time, following a rare apology for Ye West. The rapper previously known as Kanye West, sent a text to Soulja to formally apologize for not alerting him of his verse removal.

Is Ye’s apology long overdue?

It has been over 2 months since the release of Ye’s album. Unfortunately, Soulja was publicly shamed due to his verse removal unbeknownst to him. Some questioned why he would be featured in the first place. This opened the gateway for some less than pleasant comments surrounding the album release.

Soulja Boy lashed out sending several tweets expressing how he felt disrespected. Most recently, West appeared on an episode of Drink Champs. His verse would have been featured on Remote Control, but it was not a great fit. West called the verse “trash.”

Following the interview, The rapper took to Instagram Livestream to respond to Ye’s remarks. “You should have motherf***in’ text me that and say that verse wasn’t good,” yelled Soulja.

The album itself generated a vast amount of buzz. Then again, West’s dramatic antics made way for the anticipation. The Chicago native is known for his extremes, like his most recent name change and artistic haircut.

The Taylor Swift controversy

Mr. West is almost certain to express his feelings with no regard to the other party.  The drama surrounding his infamous moment with Taylor Swift on the Video Music Awards stage in 2009, made history.   What should have been a glorious moment quickly turned sour.

West was not pleased that she has won Best Video by a female artist, over powerhouse singer, Beyonce.  West stormed the stage saying, “I’mma let you finish, but Beyoncé had one of the best videos of all time! One of the best videos of all time!” This moment did not go over well for Swift fans due to her embarrassment on national television.

“Kanye did call me and he was very sincere in his apology, and I accepted that apology,” the “Blank Space” singer told ABC Radio in 2009.

Jay Z and Ye beef

West also seemingly apologized to Jay Z.  The two have a longstanding feud stemming back to 2009.  Fans were disappointed surrounding this fallout because their music collaborations halted. Their Watch The Throne release was one of the greatest releases in hip hop.

On the song Brothers, Ye raps, “So I’m sorry for all the miscues/How about I admit that I miss you/I miss the fam and our brotherhood/I just wanna make sure that my brother’s good,” he raps. “So I ain’t embarrassed or above/ Flying out to Paris for a hug/ Or picking up the phone just to call up/Picking up the phone hope it’s all love,” he spits.

The tension between Jay and West stems from the absence of “The Carters” from the West Wedding Ye shared in an interview with Charlamagne Tha God. Reportedly, West has reached out to Jay Z in hopes to make amends. Considering Jay Z’s appearance on Donda, talks of Watch the Throne 2 have fans raving about the possible reunion.

Is Soulja Boy the first to receive an apology from Kanye?

In hindsight, the answer is no. Although this apology to the “Crank Dat” rapper is overdue, he can take a backseat in being the first in this category. However, fans question now, where is Chris Brown’s apology?
