Soulja Boy Gets 12 Months Probation For Obstruction

Soulja Boy

The pen may have recently claimed rappers T.I., Lil’ Wayne, Lil’ Boosie and Gucci Mane, but it hasn’t grabbed Soulja Boy Tell’em yet. The “Kiss Me Through The Phone” star received twelve months probation on Friday for obstruction. The charge stems from an incident last October where Soulja Boy and others ran from police after the authorities interrupted a video shoot in an abandoned house in Georgia. Good thing, he’s still breathing fresh air—the rapper is finishing work on a book, two movies and producing tracks for Kanye West‘s next album. That’s right, Soulja Boy is producing Kanye. Let’s hope he keeps his nose clean this year, as we’d hate to see that plan not to come to fruition.

Soulja Boy Arrested For Fleeing Police

Soulja Boy Tell ‘Em is out on a $550 bond after spending Wednesday night behind bars for running from police in Atlanta. Police Captain Jason Bolton says authorities were checking out reports of a party at an abandoned house. “You couldn’t really tell what was going on,” Bolton said to MTV News. “But about half of the group ran from the officer on foot. He ordered, of course, for them to stop.”

The cop soon learned that Soulja Boy was one of those who fled, and the rapper was charged with obstruction of justice—a misdemeanor—when he returned to pick up his Range Rover. No court is currently set and the rapper has yet to comment.

Soulja Boy Thanks Slave Masters For “Ice,” Getting Ancestors Out Of Africa

Ah, the innocence of youth. Only an excitable 18 year old like Soulja Boy could interrupt a music critic to defend slavery. When a writer for The Daily Beast asked Soulja Boy which historical figure he hated most, the “Crank That” rapper was stumped until the writer offered “Hitler, bin Laden, the slave masters…” as options. “Oh wait! Hold up! Shout out to the slave masters!” said Soulja Boy in response. “Without them we’d still be in Africa. We wouldn’t be here, to get this ice and tattoos.” Wow, we’ve never looked at centuries of oppression that way! Fresh take!

You hear a lot about “postracial politics” today, but we’re pretty sure this uniquely ignorant outlook on the slave trade isn’t what they’re aiming for. No wonder he has to beg his teacher for D’s. [via Idolator]
