The rapper and star of Love & Hip Hop: Hollywood is currently on probation for carrying a loaded firearm in a vehicle in 2014.
Soulja Boy was given 24 months of probation in December 2014 after striking a plea deal, which meant his weapons possession charge was dropped.
The tale has commanded fans and critics’ attention, culminating in the Soulja Boy Challenge, which has taken over the internet. We’ve dug deep into Soulja Boy’s history to compile a timeline of the rapper’s most notorious beefs to date.
Wu-Tang Clan member GZA has never been one to bite his tongue, and he had a few words for Soulja Boy during a show in London in December of 2007.
I’ma beat the shit out of that nigga.” What’s with all the aggression?
SB later put the convo on blast on Instagram (below).
He was also sentenced to 170 hours of community service and the gun was destroyed.
Soulja Boy didn't appear to have any regrets about sharing the disturbing clip, as the next day he tweeted: 'If you're not happy do something about it ... I'm not letting anyone get in the way of me doing me.'After the musician, real name De Andre Cortez Way, shared the threatening video, rapper Skrill Dilly denied rumours that he is dating Nia.
But in addition to building a reputation as a teenage phenom with plenty of business savvy, Soulja was also perceived as everything that was wrong with rap music and a representation of where the culture was headed, causing friction between himself and elder statesmen in the game.
However, Soulja Boy would hold his own in many of these instances, flipping the script and proving to be adept at handling himself when put in the hot seat, a position he would find himself in numerous times throughout the years.
