The weed and the gun discovered during Soulja Boy's arrest this morning were inside a briefcase ... which allegedly belongs to the rapper ... law enforcement sources tell TMZ.

TMZ broke the story ... 21-year-old Soulja and 4 other men were arrested in Temple, GA early this morning ... after cops pulled over their Escalade because one of the lights on the vehicle was out.

Sources tell us ... when cops approached the car, they detected a "strong odor" of marijuana ... and searched the SUV.

We're told cops found a briefcase during the search, which they believe belongs to Soulja Boy ... and inside, officers claim they found a "substantial amount" of weed and a firearm.

Law enforcement sources tell us ... all 5 men were hauled to a nearby jail and booked for marijuana possession and a gun charge.

All 5 men have since been released after posting bond.

As a young black male I am not surprised by all the hate. I am positive most of you are WHITE and just love seeing black people get locked up so you guys can feel good about yourselves right? Most of you are still bitter a BLACK man run's the world and is cleaning up the F*cking mess your dumb ass pres.Bush created. I hope for all you young fellas out there are taking something from this kid getting locked up for being stupid. When you're worth more than 20+ MILLION dollars your "friends" will always take the wrap. Yes, he is a idiot I am just glad I don't have to waste any of my tax dollar's on him. Another note stay out of the south.

Only an idiot would be happy or find delight in someone being arrested for a non violent offense.
