Soulja Boy recently spoke on being robbed at gunpoint last year and the safety precautions he has taken since the near-fatal incident.

While not known for promoting violence, Soulja Boy did say his home was now equipped with weapons for safety.

"It changed the way I go about handling things now," he said in an interview. "It just made me change the precautions in my security now, you know what I'm saying? I keep a pistol in every room now. You know, my bodyguards stay strapped now, you know what I'm saying? Before that happened, I ain't really just think about things like that because I ain't really, you know, I be beefing with rappers and stuff like that. But I ain't just really got no beef in the streets like that and now I do. It's like I'm on another level now, you know what I'm saying? So I take them sorta precautions now. But as far as when I'm in the studio recording, it depends on what type of record I make. On my third album, it's gonna be real deep, and I will go in more depth about what happened at the house that night." (Popeater)

The rapper was reportedly robbed by a group of men.

As recently reported, rapper Soulja Boy was reportedly robbed by 6 ?goons? at least reportedly that's what the rapper supposedly text messaged to a friend. Well, in a video released on the internet, 2 men, who are wearing rags over the face to hide their identity, are claiming it was just them, the 2 of them, and they are who robbed the rapper at gun point after knocking on Soulja Boy's door at 4 a.m. (Hip Hop RX)

Two of the alleged men also released an online video to confirm the robbery.

Rapper Soulja Boy is keeping relatively quiet about being robbed at gunpoint by six men who entered his Georgia home. The singer, whose real name is DeAndre Ramone Way, and several of his friends were in the home at the time of the attack. A video turned up on the Internet with two masked men claiming to be the robbers. Not only did they admit to the crime but they also said this isn't the first time they have encountered Soulja Boy. The criminals said that they 'stalked' him at the release party for his latest album iSouljaBoyTellem and followed him to his home after the party. In the homemade video, the criminals shot down rumors that there were six guns involved and said that they had robbed him with one gun between the two of them. (Bitten & Bound)

Aside from the near-fatal incident, Soulja Boy is working on his third solo project.

"I know a million producers that are no-names, but they got hot beats," he said in an interview. "I will be going back in the lab to produce beats on this album, I really haven't produced since my second album, but I'm looking forward to doing a 50/50 split beat with Kanye West. I think that'll be hot because he's a great lyricist, but an awesome producer as well. I feel like I'm an awesome producer too, and both of us in the studio together at the same time can come out with a smash." (Radio Planet TV)
