A friend forwarded this email on to me today and I am disgusted!
“I wanted to pass this information on, I didn’t know if anyone else was as behind on things as I was. Thanks to Tom Joyner’s show this morning with Kirk Franklin I was enlightened. Kirk Franklin said
he did not let his children listen to the song Souljah boy because of the words and the meaning of Superman. With that information I needed to find out exactly what superman meant other then the super hero.
I google searched Urban dictionary and put the word in and this is what I discovered:
Superman is when a guy ejaculates on a girl’s back and puts a sheet on her back.
When she wakes in the morning and stands up, the sheet is stuck to her back (like a cape) , you have officially supermanned that hoe.Watch Me crank dat Souljah boy now superman dat hoe.
My mouth is still hung open with shock – I had no idea.It pays to know what the kids are listening to and singing. Thats why I enjoy kids listening to disney (hannah montana ,
cheetah girls, jonas brothers, high school musical soundtrack) and i tend to sing along. ….call us white but they not singing about the before mentioned. Here is the link to the urban dictionary should you need to look up other slangs….
When I think of the number of young children who still get excited everytime this track is played and sing along to every single word, my blood boils. And come to think about it the line “superman that hoe” sounded so off, how come none of us (particulary parents) never called him out earlier?
They really did succeed in brainwashing us in to thinking that this was just a harmless, fun track aimed at the kids….. (shaking head…)
…I should have paid more attention…….
Souljah Boy and Collie Park both deserve to burn for this!

AND VERBAL ABUSERS COME TO THE RESCUE AT ABOUT TIS POINT TO SAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
( AND HE WOULD BE RIGHT IN SAYING IT !!!)
THE FACT THAT HE’S SAING SOME SMART ALEC SHIT IS ONE THING !!!!!
BUT THE FACT THATTHE SONG IS SO SO SO SO SO WEAK TO BEGIN WITH IS WHATS REALLLY WACK ABOUT IT .. BRING BACK LAFFY TAFFY!!
How many people know the real meaning and who cares. The fact that a lot of the kids don’t know what they are singing is a blessing.
Remember the track ” my neck, my back lick my” – you know how it goes.
When that got out uncensored, i knew all morality/ethics was lost for good.
WOW!!! Im a teenager myself and i had NO idea that those were the real meanings of that song. Im sure there are other teens that do not know. i will be sure to pass this website on. Thanks for informing me!!!!
It’s probs too late now, but Ashley please don’t pass it on – the less kids that no, the better !!!
I ONLY JUS FOUND THAT OUT 2DAY…fair enough i know alot of song lyk that get big into the charts but the fact that this song is made by a 17 year old and most importantly its aimed, unlike other sexual dance/hip hop songs which are not necessarily aimed however listened to by children, at children is soo disgusting and like the previous comment the song was kinda wack to begin with but when to me it just sounded like a fun track they play at a party (im 16). The more people that know this the more this song will get disliked
im a 14yr old girl from australia, that song is really popular at school on phones and stuff. we’re not stupid, we actually know what that means (well, most of us to). its the younger kids that don’t know what that means. and the ones that know what it mean don’t like that song.
It’s so many more impotant things to worry about in the world than a teenage artist. Kids will be kids and they will learn about sex, drugs, and much more. There are also SO many more songs that have hidden meaning…Get over it and find a life!!!
Oh p**s off Sue. Why don’t you get a life.
I’m seventeen years old and I find the song very offensive. “crank that” is in reference to masturbation and the whole superman thing is supposed to be done when the girl refuses sex. It is basically condoning sexual violence and it is bad for boys my age and a little younger to hear. And obviously i’m not talking about the majority of boys my age… Most of them have enough sense to not do what a song tells them to do but there are boys with autism and aspergers who don’t understand how to interact with other people, let alone girls and if a song is telling them that this nationwide “idol” is jacking off on the backs of girls who refuse them sex of course they are going to think that it is ok. I had a problem with a guy with autism and I know what it is like. They don’t understand what is ok in friendships and stuff like that… It isn’t their fault but there will be some guys who have problems like autism who will think it is ok and the second somebody refuses them for sex what will happen?? Plus Soulja boy is way too young to be singing that… Nobody should ever be singing that. Never mind the fact that it is extremely offensive to women.
LISTEN WHITE AMERICA..YOU GUESSED IT I AM BLACK..YOU ALL REALLY NEED TO CHILL(THAT MEANS RELAX) WHY DO YOU ALWAY BLOW SOMETHING OUT OF PROPORTION!!!JEEEEEZZZ….I KNOW SO MANY OF YOUR ROCK STARS WHO GO ON STAGE AND PUSH THE FINGER IN THE ANUS AND THERES NO QUARRELLS ABOUT THAT.CRANK THAT DOESNT MEAN MASTURBATE……WHEN YOU CRANK A MOTOR DO YOU MASTERBATE IT!!!!!???YOU ALL MAKE ME SICKKKKK
i love that song!!!! its like the best song ever!!!!!! and im only 9 i kno the meaning and i love the meaning!!! its sooo awsome!!!!
i love this song so much its like da bombbbbb its soooo awesome!! the meaning is just great..he is a roll model
Hide your children in the basement the world is evil o.O
I KNOW AS A YOUNG CHRISTIAN WE ALL HAVE FLESH AND ARE CONSTANTLY EXPOSED TO THE WORLDLY THINGS AND ITS HARD FOR US TO WANT TO DO THE RIGHT THING WHEN OUR FLESH AND PEERS ARE SAYING TO DO OTHER WISE… BUT AS FOR THE MESSAGE IN THESE SONGS IF WE ARE NOT CAUTIOUS TO OR ANALYTICAL OF THEM WE ARE SPEAKING THOSE THINGS INTO OUR LIVES AND UNKNOWINGLY CURSING OURSELVES, SATIN REALLY HAS A STRONG HOLD ON THE YOUTH OF TODAY ALL THAT WE AS CHRISTIANS CAN DO IS PRAY. NOW MOST OF THE TEENS AND YOUNG ADULTS I KNOW EITHER CLAIM TO ONLY LISTEN TO THESE SONGS BECAUSE THEY A HAVE “TIGHT BEAT” AND SOME ONLY LISTEN TO THEM BECAUSE THERES NO MUSIC THAT CAN CATCH THEIR ATTENTION LIKE WHATS ON THE RADIO OR WHATEVER THEIR FRIENDS PLAY IN THE CAR OR AT HOME. BUT ALWAYS REMEMBER YOU ALWAYS HAVE THE OPTION TO CHOOSE …TRY SOME CHRISTIAN RAP/GO-GO IT WILL OPEN YOUR EYES TO A WHOLE NEW WORLD.
Even if you think it’s getting blown out of proportion…you have to admit, if the majority of the population actually knew what those lyrics meant, it probably wouldn’t have gotten nearly as much radio air time and probably wouldn’t have made it to #1. I mean honestly…who really wants to sing the lyrics if they know they’re singing about jacking off onto a girl’s back?
And I’m not white. Calm down.
This song is vial and disgusting. I really enjoy dirty songs sometimes(see singer “Peach”) but this is just low-class shit. The fact that the dude can’t even speak english is one thing, but the connotative meanings in what he is saying is degrading and absurd. What woman in their right mind would now want to sleep with or hook up with this guy after hearing all of these degrading things that he has to say?
It kind of makes me sad that this is what is popular, and ultimately what music has turned into. This song is an insult to the black community and the progression of anti-prejudiced movements all over the world.
I’m sure that Bill Cosby, Luther Vandross, BB King, and Stevie Wonder all feel ashamed for this kid. Isaac Hayes and Martin Luther King are now rolling over in their graves.
Lyrics from another song:
We are young
But we have heart
Born in this world as it all falls apart
We are strong
We don’t belong
Born in this world as it all falls apart
I feel bad for out generation and the ones to come. As we are learning about the 1960s in my 11th grade US history class we learned how music at that time was changing and how songs started to have meanings that actually had relevance and not songs that were just made for targeting 12-17 year old kids. Souljah boy is just some dumb kid who doesnt even make good music and just wants young kids to like him. i think if we dont like some music we just dont have to listen to it. its other peoples problems if they expose their kids and friends to this kind of crap but what can you do besides inform people of the meanings and hope they stop listening to it?
i am a fourteen year old and i can’t believe what i was listening
i feel disgusted and like i need to wash my body off
Who wrote that? River of life lisajoy is a Christian…I do not write stuff. like p**f off Sue!!!!!!——that is false…useage of my url…and name….I am going to report this! That is illegal! I did not write that statment!
Yoo! You guys take it easy its been like two years. About 2/3’s of the listeners dont even care. They ignore the meaning and listen to the music, which is What all of you should do, quit all the talking, if your kids listen to it so What.(not trying to be offensive) but What would you guys rather have…a kid not listening to music and actually knowing What it means..or letting the kid be itself and listen to it with out anybody bothering them…its 2010, kids arent going to listen to you either way. Let them live theyre life. Listening to this song wont make them or break them…you guys are overreacting. At least he’s not saying What the song really means. Let him express himself through music. Shit, nobody’s talking shit about your guys’ music.
