Looks like Soulja Boy was a little excited about today's release of his direct-to-DVD film Soulja Boy: The Movie.The 21-year-old rapper, also known as DeAndre Cortez Way, was pulled over in Temple, Georgia around 3:15 a.m. Tuesday morning as part of a routine traffic stop, only to be found with "a substantial amount" of marijuana, firearms and cash, Temple Police spokesperson Dana Rampy told the Atlanta Journal-Constitution. Police were unclear if the handguns were properly licensed, but Billboard is reporting that after an investigation, the rapper is expected to be charged with felony possession of marijuana, felony possession of a weapon in commission of a crime and possession with intent to distribute. Soulja and the four men he was traveling with were described as "cooperative" throughout the process and currently remain in Carroll County Jail. Horrible
marketing ploy timing, or what? Don't forget to pick up your copies of his DVD while you wait!
