Soulja Boy Gets Arrested & The Internet Laughs

According to Los Angeles police, they are now claiming that rapper Soulja Boy has recently been arrested on a suspected probation violation after they’d allegedly found a firearm in his Hollywood Hills home.
Officer Sal Ramirez says that the young rapper and reality star, real name DeAndre Way, was arrested around 7 am on Thursday morning after they’d done a search of his home. Ramirez was unsure as to what type of firearm had been found to cause the arrest.
Way was first sentenced to two years of probation only two years ago, on December 18, 2014, after he’d been convicted of allegedly carrying a firearm in a public area.
Attempts to reach out to any representatives from the Soulja Boy camp were unsuccessful.
“Soulja Boy” is best known for his 2007 hit “Crank That (Soulja Boy)“ and for his recent appearances on VH1’s Love and Hip Hop: Hollywood.
The arrest was first publicly reported by celebrity gossip site TMZ.
Rapper and television producer 50 Cent, who has collaborated with Way on several projects, took to his own Instagram account to comment on the recent news of his arrest, having a good laugh of his own.
“Sh!t be crazy out here. First Soulja was like, ‘Quavo want some beef with me.’ Couple days later he was like ‘Quavo call police on me.’” He continues by saying, “You know what kind of gun they found? I hope they ain’t find that draco. Find something else don’t find that draco. I know that n!gga stressed. N!ggas calling 1-800-Tips on a n!gga? What the f*ck did you do?”
A passenger then sounds off by saying, Quavo must be mad about Soulja’s recent diss and bad mouthing, however, 50 insists that the Migos rapper isn’t worried.
“Nah he’s popping now, his name all over the sh!t, B,” he says, “That n!gga don’t give a f*ck about that. This sh!t crazy.”
Soulja was released on Thursday night, taking to his Twitter account to say, “F*ck quavo, Lil yachty, and Nia Riley. I ain’t going no where,” in a since deleted post.
So, what are your thoughts on this recent news? Who do you think ratted on him? Or did he tell on himself?
