Atlanta rapper Soulja Boy Tell Em‘s manager, Miami Mike, has cleared the air on his client making headlines last week after a publicized arrest in Los Angeles.
According to MM, Soulja Boy’s neighbor is really responsible for a gun turning up in his car.
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)
Although brief with his words, SB acknowledged the headlines he sparked after being arrested a few days ago.
“Thanks for everyone who sent love and checked on me I appreciate we all good I’m gonna drop some music tonight! Sh*t crazy!!!,” SB tweeted January 24.

According to reports, the arrest went down last 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.
