Rapper Soulja Boy out of the blue announced that he would go to jail in a few days. The rapper, whose real name is DeAndre Way, took to Twitter to share the news to fans on Saturday, February 15. “5 more days until I go to jail. Appreciate everyone who was there for me while I needed y’all,” he wrote. Soulja did not share more info about the jail stint.

Late last month, Soulja had a run in with the law after he was accused of carrying a loaded gun. According to TMZ, he was pulled over after running a stop sign in the San Fernando Valley, Los Angeles on January 22. The officer reportedly saw him carrying a loaded gun and he was booked on a felony charge as the result.

“It’s just being young and being successful,” Soulja said of the arrest in an interview with DJ Whoo Kid. “I feel like, if I was a regular person, it wouldn’t get promoted in the media. Me and Bieber we were just chilling. We just young and having fun. They pulled over the Bentley, they pulled over the Ferrari. Why are they pulling us over in the first place? We just gone deal with it. All my fans that’s been rocking with me through everything I salute to y’all and appreciate the support.”

In addition to the January arrest, he was charged with obstruction of justice in 2009 after running from the police when doing a video filming in an abandoned building. He also had another legal problem in 2011 when he was arrested on felony drug and gun charges.

Atlanta rapper Young Thug officially signs with Cash Money Records

Young Thug

The YMCMB family just keeps growing and Atlanta rapper Young Thug is the latest recruit.

Rumors began to swirl that the rapper may have signed to the label since he’s been rocking a lot of Cash Money merchandise. He even tweeted “RichGang….YMCMB family”, which spread the rumors of his signing like rapid fire.



Even with all of the subliminal indicators, nothing was made official. Birdman was pretty tight lipped about the deal, too.

But it looks like Thugga can only hold water for so long. The “Stoner” and “Danny Glover” rapper accompanied Birdman to New Orleans for All-Star Weekend and the two were spotted just before entering a nightclub.

Before entering the club, a reporter from Mass Appeal stopped Thugga and popped the million dollar question: “Are you signed to YMCMB?”

His response: “Yeah. I signed.”

In an interview with The Fader, Young Thug expressed his admiration for now label mate Lil Wayne.

 “That’s my idol,” he said. “Everything he do.”

Young Thug also has close ties to Gucci Mane, as he worked with him as a 1017 Brick Squad Records signee.

“If Gucci Mane said f**k you,” Young Thug said, “you need to please know that Young Thug says f**k you, too.”

Guess Nicki Minaj’s remix of “Danny Glover” should have been an indicator of what was going on. Nonetheless, congrats to Young Thug.
