Atlanta rapper Soulja Boy is looking to the future after making headlines for spending a short stint behind bars on a gun conviction earlier this winter.
Asked to reflect on the bid, SB said he is back to focusing on music-making.
“I feel like, I ain’t gonna say I was mad, but I just felt like, I don’t know. I feel like it shouldn’t happen to me,” Soulja said in an interview. “I got a lot going on with me; I’m just trying to focus and just do me. I don’t know, man! It is what it is, though. I respect the law and all that sh*t. It is what it is. I don’t care. I’m all good now though. Gucci.” (XXL Mag)

In January, manager Miami Mike said Soulja Boy’s neighbor was really responsible for a gun turning up in his car and getting him arrested.
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)
