Police reportedly discovered firearms and ammo in his possession. 

Update: 12:00 am ET (March 16, 2019) — Soulja Boy was released from custody hours after being arrested on Friday (March 15).

Soulja Boy can't seem to stay out of trouble. The rapper was reportedly arrested Friday morning (Mar. 15) after police discovered firearms and  ammo in his possession, TMZ reports.

According to reports, Soulja was on his way to meet up with his probation officer in San Fernando Valley when he was detained by police. He is currently sitting in jail in Van Nuys, a neighborhood in Los Angeles.

The "Pretty Boy Swag" artist's latest arrest is reportedly a violation of his probation. The rapper is currently on probation stemming from his weapons conviction dating back eight years. In 2016, Soulja added more time to his probation sentence after cops discovered at least one weapon in his home, which violated the judge's strict "no weapons" policy.

Apparently, Soulja Boy was not paying attention. Moving on to Feb. 2019, police raided the rapper's home after a woman claimed he held her hostage in his garage. During the raid, police discovered more ammunition and firearms.

Soulja Boy was supposed to perform at the Los Angeles Clippers game later tonight, but it's unclear if that performance is still going to happen as planned. He is expected to appear in court this Friday afternoon.

Wale Attempts To Reason With His Significant Other In "Love...(Her Fault)" Music Video

Wale's next single from his critically-acclaimed album Wow... That's Crazy, "Love...(Her Fault)" has finally received the video treatment courtesy of Teyana Taylor's camera direction. The visual follows the roller-coaster nature of a relationship, from the happy times to those nights of sadness fueled by alcohol. The music video also features a cameo from comedian B. Simone.

In an interview with Billboard, Wale candidly discussed his thoughts on loss which in a way relates to the premise of the video. "I'm the master of self-sabotage, sometimes. I can f**k up a good thing. It's just one of them things that's just a part of being me," he said. "I'll f**k up a good thing. I'll f**k up a good relationship. I'll f**k up a good friendship. But, at the same time, I think there's responsibility to be had on all places. I don't really think it's a 'loss,' though. You just move on. I'm like a basketball player that got traded or just went to another team. I'm still an All-Star."

Watch the video up top, which ends on a "to be continued" note.
