After taking a few days to think and cool off, Soulja Boy is now speaking out about his recent verbal explosion on Twitter.

In a blog entry titled "Money F*cks You Up..." posted to Global Grind over the weekend, the teen rapper apologized for his racist comments and explained how Notorious B.I.G. adage "more money, more problems," applies to his life more now than ever before.

"A lot of people talking about what I twittered the other night so I want to address it, now that I have had some time to do some thinking," he wrote. "At 18 years, having grown up in the Mississippi Delta, I never thought my life would take me to where I am now...All I thought I loved was music. I would die for that motherf*ckin music. But, once I got a record deal and all these people around me trying to tell me who to be, what to do and how to do it, I realized that I wasn't making music any more for the love. I got into this weird place where I began making music for the money...I thought money was gonna bring me happiness. And that is the farthest thing from the truth. Money f*cks you up...I know I might sound crazy, because a lot of you who are reading are probably like, I wish I had this ni**a's money. But, the truth is that money got me twisted. All I want to do is go back to making music for the love of it...I know my fans. And I know they will understand this. This ain't got nothing to do with y'all. Oh yeah... sorry to all my white peeps out there. I'm not racist :) But I guess time will heal all wounds?"

SB made headlines last week for his profanity and slur filled rant regarding his public image and music.

"Water down my music and my appearance and make me look like something i'm not," he wrote on Wednesday (July 1). "THESE CRACKERS DONT KNOW WHO THE F*CK I REALLY AM!!! Then I get signed. this is where my dream slowly died... these crackaz wanna criticize a n*gga. take REAL SH*t and turn it to trash. Like why? Like really. My music dream was THE SH*t 2 years ago before I was signed. It was everything I could ever imagine."
