Rapper Soulja Boy was arrested in California for gun possession early Wednesday morning.
According to TMZ, San Fernando Valley police pulled over a car that the 23-year-old hip-hop star was a passenger in. While the reason for stopping the car was simply due to a minor traffic violation, authorities detained Soulja Boy (real name DeAndre Way) for illegally in possession of a loaded gun. He was booked at a local jail.
Soulja Boy had some legal woes early last year as well. In January 2013, his friend
Abrahim Mustafa was driving his Bentley when it collided with a motorcycle. Soulja was later sued over the alleged hit-and-run accident.
Soulja Boy gained popularity for his 2007 hit and Grammy-nominated song “Crank That.” He was the first 16-year-old artist to write, perform, and produce a number-one song on the Hot 100.
