Atlanta rapper Soulja Boy Tell Em has remained mum on the topic of his recent Georgia arrest on drug/weapon possession, however, he has reportedly given pop star Justin Bieber the inside scoop on the situation.
Not only playing the role of listener, Bieber told Soulja Boy he was in his prayers in light of the legal situation.
Ironically, the only person Soulja Boy spoke briefly to on the matter, when I was around, was his celebrity friend, Justin Bieber, who shared a phone conversation with the rapper. “What about the whole jail thing?” Bieber — who was apparently with Sean Kingston at the time — asked Soulja Boy, while on speaker phone. Soulja Boy calmly told Bieber that his lawyer got everything straight. “We will be praying for you,” Bieber responded before sharing his excitement of his new Cadillac. (Billboard)
Earlier this month, Soulja Boy proclaimed his innocence.
Soulja Boy was arrested Tuesday, October 18 morning on marijuana and gun possession charges. The 21-year-old rapper, however, is adamant he’s innocent. In fact, he proclaimed his innocence to his screaming fans when he walked out of jail after posting a $10,000 bond later that day. “I’m innocent man. I love you all. I just want you’ll to know I’m innocent,” declared the “Crank That (Soulja Boy)” MC, whose real name is DeAndre Way. CBS Atlanta detailed that he made the quick statement while being escorted to an awaiting car outside a bail bond company by his bodyguards. (Ace Showbiz)
