Soulja Boy Escapes Gun Felony By Blaming Neighbor, Still Busted For Firearm And Weed Possession
Soulja Boy just got charged with gun possession and weed possession, but it's pretty much the best-case scenario after police found a loaded gun in the "Crank Dat" rapper's ride in January 2013.
TMZ reported the charges and pointed out that Soulja got out of the firearm felony by blaming his neighbor for stashing the Smith & Wesson .38 caliber revolver under his bucket seat.
This comes a week after a paternity test proved SB was not the father of a seven-year-old boy he had no idea existed.
Needless to say, this month has been a rigamarole for Mr. Boy. As previously reported, he also recently claimed responsibility for inspiring a line from Drake's hit "Started From the Bottom."
"I wear my jewelry all the time," Soulja Boy said. "What Drake said in that song? 'I wear all my chains on even when I'm in the house.' He got that shit from me. You know what I'm saying? I'm in the house I got four, five chains on ... Cause I never had nothing. I come from the hood. I come from the ghetto. I come from the brokest hood in Atlanta, Georgia on the West Side. I never had shit, so when I made my first million dollars at 17 I said 'N---a, I'mma ball out. I want n----s to know that I made it.' So, this is a statement of me not having nothing and coming to being something. Making nothing to something."
His girlfriend, Nia Riley, who appears with him on VH1's Love And Hip-Hop: Hollywood, confirmed that she has to make him remove his jewelry before going to bed.
In the interview, Soulja Boy also discussed his decision to venture into reality television.
"I just feel like the media, they take my words and they mix my s--t up all the time," he explained. "The reason I did the show though was to really clear up the perception for my fans. I'm always on the blogs. I'm always on MediaTakeOut. I just want to give people the real story of what I'm really doing."
