Soulja Boy took to Instagram Live after being released from jail the same day as being arrested, and he cracked jokes about the situation.
Soulja told viewers, “Yeah, I’m out… I just got out of jail right now and I’m performing at the Clippers game. Tell you, this s*** ain’t going to start… I had the biggest comeback of 2018 and they try to lock me up, they try to hate on me…I’m the hottest rapper in the game.”

It appears that the momentum that Soulja Boy was carrying through 2019 has been derailed by legal trouble, as the rapper has been reportedly arrested for violating his probation.
Soulja has been on probation for a weapons violations conviction over eight years ago, while more recently in 2016, his probation was extended when cops found a weapon in his home after he allegedly threatened someone online.
Fast forward to last month, where cops executed a search warrant of Soulja’s home after a woman claimed she was held hostage in his garage, ultimately finding the ammunition that led to his arrest. The police supposedly waited for Soulja to meet with his probation officer to put him in handcuffs, while he’s now being held in jail awaiting a court appearance for later today.
With that said, Soulja is scheduled to perform at halftime for the Los Angeles Clippers game tonight, an engagement that he was looking forward to based on a video he posted to his IG story hours before his arrest.
