Atlanta rapper Soulja Boy can breathe easy again. The hip-hop star has avoided jail time but will pay a stiff price for a publicized felony gun possession arrest.
According to reports, SB appeared in court Thursday (March 30) and pleaded no contest in his case.
The 26-year-old rapper, whose real name is DeAndre Cortez Way, was immediately sentenced to 240 days of community labor and five years felony probation, according to Greg Risling of the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office. (Los Angeles Daily News)
Soulja’s now-infamous bust went down last January at his California home.
The charge involved a Mini Draco AR-IS assault weapon. Way was charged Jan. 23 by Los Angeles County prosecutors with three counts, including the assault weapon charge. (My News LA)
In mid-March, Soulja Boy made headlines after publicly clashing with his family.
New interview coming soon clearing all these fake ass stories up. Love y'all

A few days prior, SB’s brother came directly at him with a diss song.
The tweet comes following the release of a diss song called “Overdue” by the rapper’s brother John Way. In the song, Way called Soulja Boy out for being a liar and said that their mother is on welfare, even though her son is financially successful. (IBTimes)
