Soulja Boy

Youuuuuuuuuu Got Arrested

10/18/2011 5:57 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Soulja Boy Mugshot
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 riding in an Escalade 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.

You don't need a licence to own a gun in Georgia.

His music - if you can actually call it that - sucks balls, and him as a human being sucks too... This punk is so irrelevant and not news worthy...his comments towards public officials is disgusting and I think he should be locked away and forgotten about... He deserves everything coming his way for this incident...

Well, what about the guns? Isn't that what this article was supposed to be about? I guess it's better to just glance at the title and keep moving.

I live in Temple and I actually think that this is so random everyone around here thinks it's super funny ( getting busted in Mayberry for dope ) although it is no shock to me at all,Temple is only 10min away from C'ton which is nothing more but a dope trap,and then we are only 40 min west from the A, and I know alot of famous ppl that has been in and out of this area a lot of times especially hanging out near C'ton....they come to party go to the local night spots just back here in our neck of the woods we really dont care if you are famous at all....but getting busted in Temple is priceless really....most people dont even know we are on the map.Thanks, Soulja Boy you made us famous :)

Hey punk...at least Superman has kryptonite as his weakness. What you got? Weed and an Escalade. HAHAHA! You went down faster than yo mama in a "Who s*cks d*ck better" contest. Put his a** in an army suit and drop his a** in the middle of Iraq with a bullseye on it.

Oh, and to the ignorant people who try to say that it was a "sterotypical traffic stop", tell me the last time you saw an Escalade with untinted windows. That's right, they are always tinted, so stop pulling the crap about how a cop in a car behind an Escalade with tinted windows can tell the race of the people inside. He got caught, plain and simple probably because the idiot he hired to drive him was showing off his Escalade.
