Soulja Boy spent the day behind bars following his arrest on marijuana possession and a gun charge, but he didn’t forget his fans. The “Crank That” rapper returned to Twitter to issue an apology.
According to TMZ, Soulja was pulled over on Tuesday morning for a traffic violation. When officers approached the Cadillac Escalade, they detected a strong odor of marijuana. After their search, they found a “substantial amount” of weed and a firearm in a briefcase, allegedly belonging to the rapper. All five men in the vehicle were taken into custody.
Upon his release that evening, the 21-year-old hip-hop star resurfaced online to thank his fans. “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 tweeted before filling timelines with positive messages from his followers.
Soulja’s DVD Soulja Boy: The Movie was released the same day as his arrest and he was forced to cancel his scheduled press. “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,” he wrote.
He plugged the movie and expressed his gratitude before logging off for the night. “Goodnight. much love go cop soulja boy the movie everywhere now thanks for your prayers.”
