Atlanta rapper Soulja Boy Tell Em is getting 2014 started on the wrong foot after reportedly being arrested in Los Angeles on a weapons possession charge.
According to reports, the arrest went down Wednesday (January 22) morning.
Soulja Boy was arrested in L.A. early this morning … after cops say he was packin’ a LOADED GUN, TMZ has learned. Law enforcement sources tell us … the 23-year-old rapper was a passenger in a vehicle that was pulled over in the San Fernando Valley for running a stop sign early Wednesday morning. During the stop, cops say they noticed that Soulja was in possession of a loaded gun — and arrested him on the stop. Soulja was hauled to a nearby jail — he’s currently being booked. Soulja has a history of run-ins with the law — he was busted for weed and weapons back in 2011. (TMZ)
Last month, Soulja Boy was dragged into a nasty alleged baby mother drama case.
The woman claiming Soulja Boy fathered her kid has some hard evidence he’s the daddy … including pictures of her straddling Soulja. Diamond Shantaniece Mackey filed legal docs claiming Soulja Boy has a son — 5-year-old Portlon. Turns out Diamond may have struck gold with a picture taken in 2007 in a hotel room where she claims she took a pregnancy test … which came back positive. During her pregnancy, Soulja became a huge star with the hit, “Crank That.” After Portlon was born … Diamond says Soulja took a home DNA test and texted her a picture of a 0% sign and then changed his phone number.

Although no longer a love interest, female rapper Diamond said she still maintained a close relationship with SB last February.
“Well, I’m single, but the relationship as far as me and him, we’re best friends so I think thats what keeps us so balanced,” she revealed in an interview. “I learned a lot from him and he learned a lot from me. Our foundation is that we’re really really good friends, he’s a good person.” (Everything Girls Love)
In late December 2012, Soulja Boy and Diamond’s ex-boyfriend/rapper Lil Scrappy clashed over her on Twitter.
“”@souljaboy: let’s go to war. I f*cked your girlfriend and you a b*tch.@reallilscrappy”lol souljia bitch u got money but no heart I’m ready,” Scrappy re-tweeted from Soulja Boy December 30th.
