Soulja Boy Arrested For Gun Possession

Los Angeles police found his gun after they pulled over the car he was in on Wednesday morning.

Soulja Boy has surely seen better days. On Wednesday (January 22), the 23-year-old rapper was arrested in Los Angeles after police found him with a loaded gun.

A representative from the LAPD confirmed with MTV News that the rap star (born DeAndre Cortez Way) was a passenger in a vehicle that was pulled over after running a stop sign in San Fernando Valley at 4 a.m. on Wednesday. They confirm he was arrested for possession of a concealed weapon. The police would not confirm if the weapon in question was a loaded gun, as reported by TMZ.

SB first rose to fame after his 2007 single "Crank That (Soulja Boy)" hit #1 on the Billboard Hot 100, but he has since made his bones on hip-hop's online and underground mixtape scene. He was arrested in Georgia in 2011 and charged with gun and drug possession.

In December, Soulja scored a major musical win when Drake jumped on a remix to his "We Made It" from SB's The King mixtape.

As of press time police didn't have any information for MTV News.
