Soulja Boy has been arrested for violating terms of probation one month after police found ammunition in his home.

Soulja Boy has been placed under arrest for violating the terms of his probation during a meeting with his probation officer.

The Cut Dat Check rapper was apprehended on Friday morning in the San Fernando Valley area of Southern California, according to TMZ.

This comes a month after police reportedly found ammunition in his home during a search in February.

The terms of his probation, which were made after a 2014 firearms charge, strictly prohibited the artist from possessing any guns or ammunition.

The 28-year-old, whose real name is DeAndre Cortez Way, was put in custody in Van Nuys, California before being released soon after.

He is set to appear in front of a judge later on Friday.

The Pretty Boy Swag rapper was found with ammunition one month ago when the cops searched his residence in response to a woman who claimed he had held her hostage in his garage.

However, the arrest was delayed for his probation meeting.

Less than two hours before his reported arrest, he shared two shots of himself relaxing and smoking a blunt, one captioned ‘Blessed’ while the other was captioned: ‘Stay focused!’

The rapper was also expected to perform at a Clipper’s basketball game on 15 March but it’s unclear whether or not he will be there or not.

The Speakers Going Hammer rapper’s legal complications go all the way back to a 2014 conviction for carrying a loaded firearm in public.

He was sentenced for 24 months probation and in 2016, was arrested for violating the agreement.

Just a month after was charged with an additional two felonies and one misdemeanor crime.

After being convicted for one felony, he was sentenced to another five years of probation.

Metro.co.uk has contacted reps of Soulja Boy for a comment.
