Soulja Boy Released From Jail. Tells Fans He's Not Guilty! (VIDEO) / Soulja Boy Arrested For Guns & Drugs in Georgia

Soulja Boy was released from a Temple, Georgia jail yesterday (October 17) after posting a $10,000 bond.

The rapper and four other men were arrested at around 2:15 a.m. yesterday morning after a routine traffic stop. Cops says they smelled a strong odor of marijuana coming from the Escalade they were riding in. A subsequent search turned up 5 ounces of weed, guns and $40,000 in cash.

TMZ is reporting that the drugs, money and one gun were found inside a briefcase that belongs to Soulja.

Soulja, real name, DeAndre Cortez Way, 21, Dontay Lamar Bates, 27, Camron Wagner, 22, James Raymond Smith, 35, and Gregory Latimore, 56, were all charged with felony possession of marijuana, possession with intent to distribute and possession of a firearm during the commission of a crime.

As he left jail Soulja told his fans who had gathered outside that he loved them and that he was innocent.

"I got love for all yall, I'm innocent," Soulja said before being driven away.


The Atlanta rapper didn't waste time getting back to work. He hit up Twitter after his release to promote his new dvd Soulja Boy: The Movie, which was released yesterday. He also thanked his fans again for their support.


"Thank you and i'm sorry. love you forever, seeing your letters and you standing outside that jail made me feel the love. my fans r the best," he wrote. "They locked my ceo up, but i'm the ceo... f*c*. I missed 10 interviews today for my new movie! to those companies i'm sorry! you can see I had a lil situation. the show must go on."






Soulja Boy was arrested early this morning for weed possession ... and law enforcement sources tell TMZ cops allegedly found a TON of weed and cash during the arrest.

The 21-year-old rapper -- real name DeAndre Cortez Way -- was popped early this morning by Temple Police Department officers in Temple, GA at 3:15 AM.

Law enforcement sources tell TMZ ... Soulja was in a car with 4 other men, which was originally pulled over for a traffic violation.

We're told ... during the stop, cops found a "substantial amount" of marijuana and cash inside the vehicle." Soulja and the 4 other men were all arrested. Soulja is still being held in Carrol County Jail.

Law enforcement sources tell us officers also found guns inside the car -- though it's unclear if any of the men had the proper licenses to be in possession of the firearms.

We're told an investigation is underway.

One source with knowledge of the situation tells us there was roughly $70,000 in cash and drugs in the car.

Story developing ...

@StokeS & @Connie Michael Jackson had his father/dad to keep him and his brothers’ and sisters ass in check, which is what a responsible parent supposes to do when you expose your kids to the entertainment world. If Michael Jackson didn’t follow the wicked evil sons of b****** and pull away from his father, he would still be alive today. From the minute he left from under his father’s wing, his whole life began to take a down turn because; he didn’t have his father there to listen too and guide him. Joe Jackson might be a lot of things as portrayed in the media but; he knew how evil the entertainment industry was that finally took his son. Yeah these young black men are lost and, they are going to remain lost.

@evolution, preach, brethren, preach, u on a roll today...humor and serious life lectures.  Some of these youngsters are  "hurry come up overnight entertainers," they were never groomed before put in the spotlight.  You ever hear that boy give an interview, backside, I want to know which HS down south gave him a Diploma.  He need a life time coach to feed him English words daily, so he can be transformed from the "Ghetto mentality Life" to "Success and dealing with Life.

What an a******! These young entertainers need to read a little entertainment history when there in the business of entertaining, get to know the business and not make mistake like those pass. I know he saw what happen to Buju and this ass when and did the same thing; he should be buried underneath the f****** jail and if TI return, do the same s*** to him also. It has nothing to do with having money; it all has to do with self knowing who you are.

@Stokes She dont realize she is marketing this product the worst way possible. She is not going to get anywhere with it.
She is better of placing ads.
When you spam and annoy people; I don't know who will want to buy your product after.
Another annoying one is the guy that put the music on the blogs and as soon as you come on the music plays. Not smart at all.

LMAO I won't even click the link. It wreaks of pyramid scheme business. They get you to buy in, then solicit all your friend by guilting them or inviting to join your "business". It may not be at all but that's how the approach feels.
