We recently reported about Atlanta rapper Soulja Boy making an unexpected announcement to his fans letting them know he will be headed to jail soon. Soulja was very brief with his statement. Now less than 72 hours after turning himself in Soulja is a free man.
According to reports, the Atlanta rapper is back in action after serving a short time behind bars for a gun charge.
“Rapper Soulja Boy is a free man again after serving a few days behind bars on a gun charge. Soulja Boy checked into a detention centre on Thursday (20Feb14), but it appears he was granted an early release as he was back on his Twitter.com blog on Sunday (23Feb14). He shared a photo of himself in a hotel room and, in a series of subsequent tweets, he wrote, “We Made It. Keep working.” He also retweeted a message from his rap protege Young Ayers, who celebrated the star’s release by posting, “They let my n**ga out time to get back to work and turn the streets up”.” (Contact Music)
Soulja Boy’s manager Miami Mike claimed one of his clients neighbors planted a gun under his car seat and he got the blame for it about a month ago.
“But Soulja’s manager, CEO Miami Mike claims a neighbor left the gun under the car seat and Soulja had no idea it was there. Further, he claims Soulja never admitted the weapon was his, and only told cops he owned the car. Mike claims officers told Soulja someone had to take responsibility for the weapon — but insists Soulja never copped to the gun … just the vehicle. We’re told Soulja believes the whole search was illegal because cops didn’t have probable cause. But here’s the thing … according to law enforcement sources the gun was in plain view — in which case officers wouldn’t need a search warrant.” (TMZ)
