Soulja Boy has reportedly been arrested for having a gun in his home, which is a direct violation of his current probation.
According to TMZ, police paid Soulja Boy a visit at his home Thursday after being tipped off that the rapper was threatening people online with guns. The police searched his house and found a gun inside his Hollywood Hills house. Soulja was then arrested.
If you remember, Soulja Boy is currently on probation as a result of his loaded gun case from a couple years ago. In 2014, the rapper took a plea deal after being arrested while carrying a loaded weapon TMZ reported at the time. He plead no contest and the possession charge was dropped in return. He was sentenced 170 hours of community service and 24 months probation. Part of his probation terms included not having any weapons on him.
There has been plenty of news of Soulja Boy threatening people online. In November, he threatened to kill a Chicago rapper in a series of since deleted tweets. A week before that, it was reported that Soulja had been sued for threatening to kill a man.
It’s unclear exactly what time this went down as Soulja last posted to Instagram 13 hours ago as you can see below. “”Flyer than a private jet ????,” he wrote.
Lil Yachty took a minute to weigh in on the report and tweeted, “Finally the Feds put the social media Al Capone to rest. For Now At least.” Of course, Yachty and Soulja (kind of) squashed their recent beef, but Yachty’s tweet indicates there are probably some bad feelings still there. We’ll keep you updated as details become available.
