Soulja Boy, sweet, innocent Soulja Boy. Troubling days lie ahead. This case has been taken to the boys upstairs. No tears, my n*gga. The time has come for you to grow up and become a Soulja Man.

Alright, enough of that. Earlier this year, Mr. Boy was arrested for ridin' around and gettin' it. Yep. Cops pulled over a whip he was a passenger in and found weed, money ... and what else do rappers ride around with again? Oh yeah, guns. Welp, the case has now been handed over to The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms. Sh*t just got real.

The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives has decided to take on 21-year-old Soulja Boy's case, after the rapper was arrested in October of this year in Temple, Georgia. Soulja Boy, born DeAndre Cortez Way, was pulled over on Interstate 20 for a traffic violation. After searching the car, officers found handguns, thousands of dollars in cash and more than five ounces of marijuana.(All Hip Hop)

In other news ...

Kanye West: Ever heard of him? Well, after several weeks of ... you know ... doing more important sh*t, the Chicago MC logged into Twitter to announce that he would be changing his name. For a day. That's right, Yeezy has grown fond of DJing and wants to do a New Year's Eve gig under an alias.

West, who's been absent from the Twitter spectrum as of late, has kicked off a tweeting spree recently and shared some sentiments with his more than 5 million followers about manning the turntables as he welcomes 2012. "I kinda wanna DJ somewhere this New Years," he wrote Tuesday (Dec. 27). (The Boombox)


Katy Perry wants to hear "Gold Digger". Now.

Swaggerjacking Inspired by star baller Ron Artest, Kanye chose a DJ name that not only sent a message, but one that is also is really, really hard to hear when shouted across the floor of a night club on New Year's Eve. The name? Yeezy World Peace. I like Jeezis Peace better, but whatever.

"My New Years DJ name is gone be Yeezy World Peace!" If you book me you have to put YEEZY WORLD PEACE on the E-vite. Or I ain't spinning," West tweeted. (The Boombox)


Mrs. Obama asked you a question. Answer her.
