Rapper Soulja Boy found himself in trouble with the law early Wednesday morning. As first reported by TMZ on Jan. 22, the 23-year-old “Pretty Boy Swag” rapper was arrested in L.A. for possession of a loaded gun.

According to law enforcement sources, the rapper, whose real name is DeAndre Cortez Way, was a passenger in a car that was stopped by police. During the traffic stop, police stay they noticed that Soulja Boy had a loaded gun in his possession.

The discovery led to a quick arrest and jail time for Soulja Boy who was booked with a felony charge with bail set at $35k. The arrest was another in a string of run-ins with the law for Soulja Boy. He was also arrested back in 2011 for marijuana and weapons possession.

The arrest was the second of the day involving hip hop artists. Young Jeezy was arrested in Georgia for obstruction and refusing to cooperate with police.
